The Saturday Scavenger Hunt word was chosen by Laura B. at What Fresh Hell is This? blog. She chose the word fresh. Originally, I had planned to paint the above photo I took a couple of years ago and post that as a fresh take on an old picture. But yesterday, I was in the need of some freshening up of my own. I've been so overwhelmed as of late, and knew that I would be a much better person if I selfishly used my four hours of vacation to relax and do things just for me.
So, I had a nice long run when I got off work, and since it was so warm out, I sat in a lounge chair and read a novel and soaked up some badly needed vitamin D for over an hour. I can't remember when the last time I took that much time out to lounge and read was. Then, after all that relaxing made me tired, I took an hour long nap until Stinky called me to pick her up from track practice. I felt so fresh and I'm a much better person and parent because of that. Sometimes my selfishness helps everyone I'm around.
