I thought it might be an interesting idea to at least for one day try to hold us to account to be nice to ourselves.

I'll start - Today I made time for myself and did my nails before I got ready and left for the morning.  This evening I intend to make time for myself go to watch the sun go down. 

Wishing you all the best! xo

Lovely! Today I rook the bus to my fitness center, Curves...for the first time this week. I have many friends there and had a wonderful time.  :D

Luise, what a fun and energetic thing to do!  Nikncon, that sounds like a riot, amazing! xo

Oh what fun!  I'm chiming in late, so I haven't had a chance to do anything yet today except go to work! Lol.  A month ago, I was asked to help coach a 9-10 year old girls softball team.  I played for 32 years and coached for 8, but I haven't done it in the last 8 years.  It's been tons of fun to do it again and the girls are so funny.

So we are supposed to have our first game tonight, but the weather isn't cooperating.  So that would be what I am going to do for myself today, enjoy coaching and the company of 13 girls that like to laugh.  If we get rained out, then I will spend the evening with DH doing something fun.

 :) What a nice positive topic! Today I played golf for the first time this year. The sun was shining but there was an icy wind. So I played a lousy game,...but still it felt wonderful to breath in the fresh crisp air, walk briskly, and hit that ball in all the wrong directions. hahaha...it was a good day. :D

Love this thread! This morning I was amazed to see all the native trees in bloom, I was afraid I'd missed it while out of state in rain & snow (brrr!) all last week. I made a cup of wonderful coffee, went outside & took a deep breath of (warmer) spring air. Glorious!

I sat in my living room for SIX HOURS and visited with a dear friend who came up from Seattle. :-)))))))))))))))))))))

All great things! I did a spot of gardening in the afternoon as the sun was setting. xo

I love this thread!

I started a Meetup group in my neighborhood for crocheting/knitting - first meeting was yesterday, and two people actually showed up!  There are also people signed up for next week.  So much fun!

And today, I spent a little bit of time in the morning listening to an uplifting audio book, and did a whole half an hour of meditation.  It snowed last night and this morning, and I focused on the trees, which looked magical, instead of the slush on the sidewalk, lol.  A good day.
This too shall pass.  All is well.

DH and I made our 2 1/2 yr old GD an "Easter egg" tree!  It is right outside my window so I can look at it while I'm on the computer.  DH is working tomorrow so it's going to be all about me!

Took the bus to Curves (I don't drive any more) and had a great time. I do that every day but it's still a treat.  :D
