That's the sound of me, decompressing. I spent the entire afternoon at the spa today, getting blonde highlights and a cut, followed by a full hour of massage. Ahhhhh.

Other reasons I'm feeling more relaxed right now than I have in ages:
– I finished my 5th round of 30 poems in 30 days
– We've filled 8 bags of clothes/toys/miscellaneous items to give to Goodwill
– I cleared my files and shredded 4 grocery bags' worth of papers we no longer need
– I can actually see the surface of my writing desk
– It's a four-day weekend!!
– Kate is FINALLY potty-trained
– In precisely two weeks, we will be on vacation

Tomorrow, I will sleep in, take a walk with my girls, and enjoy whatever the day brings. I hope it brings something good for all of you!

that sounds GOOD. no, even TERRIFIC!

i had a sleep-in today as well, which is surprising, because i have been sleeping so badly lately, and i doubted i would be able to sleep in. but: i am glad i proved myself wrong. but when i dreamed of getting me some ice cream i woke up. *S*

enjoy your weekend!

Michi - I hope your ice cream dream turned into a reality!

Anabela - Thanks for your comments! The best part is recognizing how special these moments are while we're in them.

Lauren - I hope that means you're experiencing relaxation by association ; )

Enjoy your vacation, Sharon! It's well-deserved. I'll catch up with you later in August.
