loving my GPS

Probably most of you have one already. DH and I tend to run a bit late getting things, knowing we'll get there (the land of modern technologies) eventually. A few days ago we got a Tom Tom. Today I had the unbelievable pleasure of putting it to use. Oh my. It even beeps when I go over the speed limit. Not that I would ever do that... It not only got me safely to my destination, but by simply pressing "home" it got me back home. No wrong turns. No unwanted sight seeing. I am the queen of getting lost no more. So, today I am thankful for technology and the ease of using it. No more hurried prayers "do I turn here or there?" just a leisurely trip listening to "turn right in 500 feet." Sigh. I'm ready for a road trip.

cold weather treats

Today was a be nice to me day. I began by getting a massage. If you've never had one, oh, by all means try it. Nice warm lotion...just my back. I've been getting acupuncture and various alternative treatments instead of using traditional medicines to help this back pain. The jury is still out, but the massage is right up there with the best of them and seems to be helping a lot. Then I got my nails done. mmmm. Then a nice trim for my wild hair. Then tanned for ten minutes. Just long enough to warm up and put a splash of color on my cheeks.

So, how about it? Am I the only one feeling like I need to do something like this to pull myself through this never ending winter? Did it work? I think so. Sure feels nice to take good care of me today. Now does that make me egotistical? No, I believe God intends us to take good care of those we love. But that also includes ourselves. I sort of forgot me for the past few months. Time to cook some supper and nurture DH and my son. Have a blessed day. Spring is coming!
