Is that a contradiction? Eh, whatever, i'm determined to make it a happy Monday! The sun is shining, the skies are a lovely shade of blue, and i'm wearing my very cheery Trina Turk skirt that i had planned to wear for Easter service in Dallas but didn't due to the meteologist's LIES about there being awful thunderstorms all day yesterday. Hmph. Oh well - i did manage to lay out by the pool yesterday with this stack of new magazines i got in the mail on Saturday.
I just adore getting a batch of fresh magazines, don't you?? And at the subscription rates going these days (i got 24 months for something like $10!), it's saving me oodles of money at the check-out. I used to be such a sucker for buying magazines at the check-out stands of Target, Whole Foods, you name it. I know my Mom secretly hates that i read magazines, but i LOVE them and could never give them up.
Anyway, I did go to church last night with my cousin and thoroughly enjoyed it. It motivated me to really get on the ball about finding a good Women's Small Group that isn't full of either annoying "good"/uptight/socially awkward people OR the alternative, extra-fratty/even-more-annoying/"I'm Christian b/c it's cool" people. Gosh, if you took offense to that sentence, i am truly sorry but it's been so hard for me to find people at church with whom i can actually... gel. You know?
OK, new topic.
Woke up to this adorably sleepy face this morning!
She was probably tres confused as to why i was up so early. Well, I've re-started my Morning Pages a la Julia Cameron and "The Artist's Way". Yay! For those of you who are unfamiliar, Julia suggests waking up every morning and journaling 3 full pages of whatever-pops-into-your-head. I did them yesterday and this morning and it's amazing what a difference it's made in my general attitude/mood.
Am planning to pick up delicious Greek food next door for lunch and attend a wellness luncheon on "Laughter: the Physiological and Psychological Benefits". Should be tres interesting...
Happy Monday, darlings!
