So this year, and for the past year, I have very wisely rented out my office on Wednesdays. This makes it impossible to work. I'm grateful for that. I'm grateful that I have so much work that taking off Wednesdays is kind of a necessity.
I love my Wednesdays. I call them Spa Days, because the first few non-working Wednesdays I permitted myself the luxury of massages, or hairdressing appointments, and have now added training sessions and so on.
So today, after a night of not much sleep thanks to Honey having put his back out yesterday morning - yes yesterday, yes that would be 4 days before the big 50th birthday party, yes that would be 3 days before the surprise out of town guests arrive that HE is supposed to show around town, so that I might have the house to myself to prepare.... after all that.. I had a hairdresser appointment with Louisa.
I love Louisa. She is so beautiful, funny and really, very good at what she does. We share our work stories and always end up rolling on the floor laughing. It's a wonder my hair is as straightly cut as it is! Well here is my gratitude shout-out for today: I am so grateful for Louisa (she works at La Coupe on Sherbrooke if ever you need a great stylist) today. I stopped panicking about the weekend, I felt much less tired at the end of our "session", I feel beautiful, and at the moment - ready to tackle this party.
I am privileged and spoiled even, to have such a thing as Spa Day Wednesdays... but let me tell you - boy am I grateful!!
