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.
Nothing.
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.
No?


“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!

amen to that, dear cat...

Fuzzy Tales said...

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!

Nancy said...

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

Brian said...

Excellent idea! Me wants some Silvervine!

S. Etole said...

Enjoy, enjoy! The flowers are a good start.

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!)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

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

Mariette said...

Dearest Catherine,

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

Mariette

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! =]

SweetMarie said...

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

Ann said...

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

Chatty Crone said...

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

Sandra said...

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.

Sylvia said...

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

Well I haven't had a whole weekend. But a couple of days ago I sat my bottom on the couch all after noon and watched movies. One of them was P.S. I love you! I started crying and didn't stop till the movie was over. when hubby got home and he was wondering what the heck had happened.
Just a movie day!! I do hope you enjoy your weekend.. And I really like the way Buddha think too..
