On stealing time for yourself

I had to get up at 5:30 in the morning to do it.

I did it.

Know what this is?

One small step for me, one giant leap for sanity-kind.

What are you going to do for yourself today? Reminder: Showering still doesn't count.


  1. Are you sure showering doesn't count?

    Love that tote, it's gorgeous...you will get many compliments on it!

  2. Gorgeous bag!
    I'm switching out my wallet today. And showering.

  3. Good for you Was it painful?? ;) Love the new bag!

  4. Where's the bag from? I love it!

  5. Do you know I have bag-envy? Totally love it!

  6. Oh no, did you exercise? I hate exercising in the early morning hours!

  7. You switched tote bags? Finally? LOL - that one's pretty darn nice, so you ought to be very proud of yourself for making the switch! Use it proudly! :)

  8. HAHAHA! You did it! Good for you! What a nice bag!!!!!

    Showering may not count, but I like to read in the bathtub--for an hour or more!!!!!! Good thing my folks can take up the slack!

  9. Awesome Ellen! Love the bag. I went out for dinner last night with a group of moms who have children with CP. It was lovely! Tonight my MIL and my SIL are coming over so we can all watch The Biggest Loser together and talk about how gorgeous the new trainer on the show is :-)

  10. I ate breakfast. OK, it was at 12:15 PM post-carpool for one kid and extended therapy consultation for another, and it was combined with lunch. But real food, with the major food groups covered. (And two Entenmanns chocolate covered donuts for dessert. Shhh.)

    I too think showering counts.

    And hurray on the new bag. Yasher koach- which means, "May your strength continue" and "Nice!" in one.

  11. Well, I thought you either completed that triathlon or switched your stuff to the new bag. But I don't think Tuesdays are popular for triathlons.
    I got up at 6 and swam laps at the school across the street from me. It is SUCH A DRAG to haul myself out of bed, esp. when it becomes winter and it's -20F, but there has never been a day that I regretted it. Always feel much better the rest of the day.

  12. Showering may not count, but I think that washing my hair should.

    Love the bag.

    For myself, in addition to washing my hair twice a week (not kidding at all), I attend a small women's Bible study at Panera(yum!). I think that the drive to and from may be my favorite part...aaahhh, silence...


    It *is* the perfect, classic shade of brown!

    You must be wiped out after getting up at 5:30 AM, but now you can use it every day.

    :) So happy for you!!

  14. OK, Sherri and Debbie are right: Some days, showering counts!

    Suzanne, I love you for even thinking I'd get up at 530 to exercise! I am not that woman. Kate, I stand in awe! I got up to tend to the mundane task of moving stuff in my embarrassment-of-a-work-tote to a new bag, something I've put off for months.

    It's a Coach bag! Outlet find! Don't hate me.

    Felicia, I am glad to hear you get bath R&R.

    Jenny: awesome!

    I am now craving an Entenmann's chocolate donut.


Thanks for sharing!
