I probably posted that headline before, but it's never more true than this time of year, especially for women and those of you who are mothers. Cooking, cleaning, errands, wrapping, entertaining, ugh! Sounds exhausting just typing it.
I just took time out to take a long soak in the tub with a Korean hydrogel sheet mask on my face. I'm going to do my nails and put my feet up as my knees have been sore lately. I think it's time to re-do the injections but I dread the process. I feel relaxed, and when I feel relaxed, my pain response is much lower.
Tonight is Luminary Night in our hood. It's the first time they ever did it on Christmas Eve, it kept getting postponed due to weather and we're all looking forward to it. We will light them at 6pm, then Rob and I will take Tally on a stroll around the neighborhood before coming home to our coffee table picnic and annual viewing of A Christmas Carol, the Sir Patrick Stewart version, which is our favorite.
Whatever your holiday celebrations entail, please take a little time for self care. It's not selfish, it's necessary!
Tally Christmas y'all.
