I reserve Sunday evening to pamper myself. That means a REAL bath, with bubbles (even if they come from the shampoo bottle), a good book, and lotion afterward!!

The whole family knows this is MY time and I only come out when the hot water runs out!

Oh Candyce... I've done that nightly for years. Especially when the kids were little. It was the only time I could hear myself think!

Watch the thrift stores for bubble bath. You'd be amazed at how many ladies give that stuff away because they don't pamper themselves. I usually spend less than a dollar and some of it smells great!

You can also make your own bubble bath by buying unscented bubble bath or shower gel and adding a few drops of your favorite perfume.

Just got back from 2 weeks in CA and didn't do anything for myself. Tomorrow I will start back with my 'special stuff' for me first thing in the morning, including exercise, facial stuff . . the whole thing.

I find if I don't do it first in my day . . it doesn't get done.

me . . first.

It was the same for me as well! Up until about 8 years ago, I put myself last. As a young wife and parent, we probably believe that to put our husband and family first is a good thing. But, I slowly came to realize that if I didn't love myself first, and take care of myself first, I could not love and take care of others. It was a hard lesson to learn.

It helps that I am 1800 miles from them. I might not as well have taken the "pamper me" stuff to CA. Didn't touch it while there . . between working here and spending time with the girls.

But now I am back home and can get back into my routine.

Thank you,
Monday morning I plan to get back into my "me" routine: coffee, Bible, personal routine for face; exercise; plan low cal food for the day; and finally - shower.

I am going to have to time how long that takes so I can keep the routine up.

We'll see.

Arlene:

Have you visited Boo's Cubit Trust In The Lord? She has a new Bible verse up every day with a beautiful photo to illustrate the verse. That might help with your Bible Study part of every day.

Caught with Boo's this morning. I just LOVE how appropriate the pictures are to the verses. From now on I will go there every morning.

Thanks for pointing me there Candyce.

You are so very welcome!
I find it a restful way to center myself during the day. I guess we'll have to let her know how much we appreciate it, huh?

I've recently begun to pamper myself. I spent 18 years raising my son alone, working long hours, and now another 9 years "raising" my disabled mother (much harder than raising a child!), and trying to do everyone else's projects. I never did anything for myself, neglected myself to the point of developing some serious health issues.

Within the last couple of years, I've finally said, OK, now it's my turn. I've begun saying no to other people's projects so I could work on my own. I am quite surprised at how many friends I lost when I said "no".

I grew up with a mother who never did anything fun, rarely laughed, never pampered herself because it was "a waste of money", never treated herself to anything luxurious. And it dawned on me a couple of years ago that I had become just like my mother. I lived to get thru the day, felt guilty if I bought anything "fun", never splurged on a vacation or new furniture or anything.

I've begun slowing down and treating myself. I spent some "real" money on some Jennifer Lopez perfume, which I love. I didn't buy the imitation stuff at the dollar store. I get at least one hour-long massage a month, which is therapeutic on so many levels. For the last two months, I've splurged and get the hour-long massage and three 30-minute massages during the month. I had a massage today and planned to work on my fence this afternoon. But after the massage, I felt so good I decided to just do nothing the rest of the day but enjoy the day. So you see where I ended up. LOL

We have to pamper ourselves in some way regularly. It rejuvenates the soul and gives us momentum. When we respect ourselves enough to treat ourselves kindly, we are better people for all the people in our lives.

Girl, you are so right. I am, too. For some reason, my Sunday evening bubble bath just didn't work last week. I think it's because my mind was still centered on Cubits. Round bubbles - square Cubits.
