It's All About Me

Do you ever give yourself a
"ME" weekend?

Both son and hubby are busy all weekend.
I will basically have the house to myself for the next two days.
(well...I guess kitty will be here with me...ha!)

I have big plans for myself:
Long hot baths
Laying in bed watching movies
Catching up with blog friends
Get creative in my craft room
Taking myself on a photo shoot

No house work.
No laundry.
No making meals.
Me me me...

Do you ever spoil yourself?
Do you think it's selfish?
I don't know.
I truly believe that you must
take care of yourself in order to
properly take care of others.

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection.”  ~Buddha

Right on Buddha...I like the way you think.  :)

Happy weekend!


  1. Amen, indeed. I will give myself a "me" afternoon, sometimes a whole day, but that usually includes something productive like housework. It's rare to for me to do nothing, I feel I've wasted the day. Crazy.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I love the idea...I think we need it once in awhile...have fun

  3. Excellent idea! Me wants some Silvervine!

  4. Enjoy, enjoy! The flowers are a good start.

  5. Amen to Buddha's comment - having 'me' time helps us be better for 'them' so in that way it's not selfish at all! Enjoy! (See my "Getting Happy" post on my typepad blog - it's about this! Wish I'd had that Buddha quote when I wrote it!)

  6. Enjoy! It is so important to give ourselves a special day now and then! hugs, Linda

  7. Dearest Catherine,

    That is a purrrrrrrrrrrfect MANTRA!
    Will serve you and your feline.
    Love to you,


  8. I hope that you are well rested and satisfied with your 'me' time - Oh, I so really do! I, occasionally, get a weekend like that. I love the quiet!

    Cat, I was just noticing you 'word for the year', again, and got a lovely shot of encouragement. Thanks! =]


  9. I'm with you Catherine! I really do believe that it's true. :)

  10. I think we all need to spoil ourselves now and then. I don't think it's selfish at all, we deserve it after all. Enjoy your "me" weekend

  11. Oh my gosh - no I don't think it's selfish at all - I think it's a great idea and something women should do as often as they can - lol - which won't be that often. I think it makes us healthier and happier when everyone is united. I have done it - not often - and it felt great. sandie

  12. good times! Sounds like a wonderful idea. Just remember to take care of Banjo! Enjoy!!

  13. I am so freakin' jealous. Give it your all :)

  14. GOOD for you, Catherine... I hope your weekend will be one just for YOU... That is awesome... We all need times like this sometimes...

    Have a great weekend.

  15. I totally agree with you Catherine!
    I wish you a W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L weekend!!! :)

  16. You go girl! I really need to do that one of these days. Now if only I could get a babysitter for the dog.

  17. That sounds like a fabulous weekend! I have plans for some me days after April 17th and I can't wait!

  18. Yes, ma'am! Going for the first pedicure of the season tomorrow morning. Leaving the little guy with Doug and having an hour allll to myself.
    Have a great weekend!

  19. You are soooo lucky. A weekend alone with my cats would be heaven.

  28. you have just described my every day days... I am retired and just hubby and me and 2 dogs. i treat me every day. but i did not do it when i was working and when the kids were home. and i should have. i think it is very important to have a ME day. i spent my entire life not having days for ME, now i do it all the time.

  29. I agree, great idea !
    Enjoy your weekend, Catherine !

    Just a movie day!! I do hope you enjoy your weekend.. And I really like the way Buddha think too..
