Thread Name: BS: MudWimminzes: Your Self-Care Routine?
Subject: RE: BS: MudWimminzes: Your Self-Care Routine?
Janie, me too-- until the surgery. In the nursing home recovering from the complications, I developed some good habits, a better understanding of why to maintain them, and a clear picture of how little time it takes from other priorities to tend to myself. I wouldn't say I have become a total girly-girl, but I do know how to do better basic self-care-- and how long I can go without a real pampering. A friend of mine helped there-- she reminds me of you in may ways. Her boyfriend sends her to a spa annually. It's very expensive, but the DIY version isn't. (If I had a close girlfriend nearby, we could easily reach and tend to each others' heard-to-reach areas, ourselves. I hope to have that in Ohio!)

Ebbie, I am still here. I'm just here less. It's nice to be missed.... I've always admired your posts. I'm more active on FB and will try to PM you that link to Friend-up there.

Today-- that moment when you try on jeans you were SURE would NEVER fit (overshrunk!!!), and they zip right up! Good thing too, cuz I got TWO pairs on sale. They sure didn't fit last night over new (cotton) undies, but today they fit enough to stretch em back out-- to break in to fit me perfectly. Next time I'll wear em over nylon undies-- until I get rid of the last 7 pounds gained over the winter, which I expect to do easily with the usual increased activity level in Ohio! God willing ad the mechanic releases the van in the AM, I depart this time tomorrow.
