Hear me: I cannot say enough about all the kind words and letters and emails and books and smiles you’ve sent my way over the past week. I have returned to them again and again in the sadder moments and always come out better for it. You’re good people.

Dude. Yesterday was a banner day for me. I hired a babysitter (I know, right?!) in the middle of the day and went to the salon to get my hair cut, a teensy bit colored, and- this is the killa for me- someone else washed my hair. It is my luxury in life to go to the salon and have someone wash my hair with fun shampoo and fun conditioner and warm warm water. Oh, bless my soul.
I’m not gonna lie. It’s been a rough couple weeks for this mamma, and a little time away in a place that smells good and everyone could wipe themselves was exactly what I needed.
I wonder what your luxury is?
I returned to find that the babysitter had emptied my dishwasher (so sweet) and also downloaded aol onto my computer (remove, thank you) AND taken some sneaky photos of her and Ry with my camera. This is all extremely ok with me… again, because someone else washed my hair. Ry was a very happy girl and ate a big dinner and went to bed wearing her candycane pjs. I love her. Just for laughs, check out this video [click] of Peanut last night before bedtime. Pay close attention around the 45-second mark when the girl is laughing so hard she runs out of breath. Oh my lanta. We watched it about 42 times last night.
I hope you find a little luxury this weekend.
Blessings to you and yours.
