I'm in a relaxing state of mind, at least I'm forcing myself to be

Lately, I have been feeling that months feel like weeks, weeks feel like days, and days feel like hours. I feel like my world is spinning faster than one of those crazy roller coasters we all used to ride when we were in Middle School, and now we wouldn't dare to. Yes, you all know which ones I'm referring to. Right now, I'm on the 4th ride and I don't dare to get off because, I have crush on the boy sitting next to me. You all get the picture. I have been choosing work, school, my new business venture, the boyfriend, dogs, friends and family before myself. You know, like when you skip lunch because you have a meeting with a client, and you wouldn't dare postpone it, and risk losing a very important client. They are going to change the future of your business forever. By the end of the day, you are on the brink of fainting due to the lack of food in your system, and although the meeting went well, nothing indispensable came out of it. Or when your best friend has guy problems, and for the last two weeks all she does when she calls (which is constantly) is talk about herself. Not once, does she ask how you're doing. Or when your kids or pets get sick (in my case it's dogs, I do consider them my babies) and you have to drop everything and rush to the doctor or vet with them. You've just lost a whole day's work, which only means that you will be up all night catching up. When do we take a break aside from the regular vacations? Which by the way you planned and will end up being in charge of all of the itineraries. Of course, not everyone is always happy with your plans, but they wouldn't dare plan the trip themselves. When do you say, "enough is enough"? Today is going to be a "ME" day. When was the last time you treated yourself to a relaxing massage and mani/pedi? I'm not referring to the regular mani/pedi we all normally get, while on our blackberries solving everyone else's problems and running our own little empire. I know a lot of you are identifying with this right now. I have decided to treat myself to a special weekend with my significant other. No phones, computers, weekend projects, or work will be allowed. Just us two relaxing, sleeping in, doing things that we love to around the city and eating as many yummy (healthy) meals as possible, including dessert of course. I can't stop thinking about a slice of red velvet cake from one of my favorite restaurants. Guess what? We are going back to have some more of that delicious cake. I recommend for all of you to do the same as me, just make sure to make your family aware of your plans. If your family is anything like mine, you would have the SWAT team kicking down your door because they have not been able to get a hold of you in the last five hours. Come Monday morning, I won't be posting about a weekend project I've accomplished, although I have many on my "to do" list. I will be posting about my fabulous weekend at home and I hope you all will be doing the same.

It sounds like a much needed break is in order.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend relaxing and taking a break (at home). No travel time. That alone sounds relaxing to me. ;)

I hope you had a great, relaxing weekend. I've been feeling very stressed out lately too, and so I got a massage on Saturday afternoon. It was heavenly, and just what I needed. I hope you got to enjoy a nice big piece of cake!
