Taking Time For Me - My Hershey Spa Day

I need a day. There I said it. I need a day where my main responsibility is me. A day that I know Lil Man is being taken care of, but some time that I can just focus on me. 

So, I took that day. I had originally planned to hit the trail, but with my recent freak accident (When The Unexpected Happens) those plans changed. 

So I went to the spa instead. I prefer a massage, but instead I had my first facial. Between the chipped bone in my leg, and my foot, I didn't think a massage would be a great idea. 

It was a cloudy day, but my view from the balcony was beautiful. 

And my drink of choice was hot chocolate.. lots of it.. I think I had at least 4 cups. But it was amazing... like melted liquid chocolate.. it was awesome. 

I definitely can't complain about sitting in a robe all day (although it did get hot by the afternoon).

It was my first time having a facial. I enjoyed it. I would rather have a massage, but the facial was nice. And I was glad to get to enjoy my day. She did use a lot of oil/cream though. Check out my hair! ha ha So I was a little greasy the rest of the day. 

Lunch was awesome - and dessert was the best. When in Hershey, you know you must try everything! :) And of course I did. 

But sitting is not my thing. By mid afternoon, I had sat as long as I could sit. I did get out and enjoy the grounds just a little. But, really, I'm supposed to be off of my feet. So I was trying to do what I was supposed to do. 

And honestly my foot was hurting most of the day. So I left, went and got some dinner and then beat the boys home. 

I did get a call into the podiatrist, and I have an appointment, I'm curious to see what they will say. I'll keep you updated. 

But seriously, if you ever get a chance to experience the Spa at Hotel Hershey check it out. It was a wonderful experience, and I can't wait to do it again!

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
