recharge

hi lovelies! i'm back from a quick trip to atlanta {and an AMAZING dinner at the blue ridge grill...not sure how i've never been there before, but if you're in the area, GO!}. i know this is the umpteenth time that i have flaked out on y'all in the past two months, but i'm going to be flittering away from my blog for just a bit. it's confession-time:

i have not been taking care of myself AT ALL the past two months. i can't tell you the last time i consistently prepared anything remotely resembling a healthy meal for myself. i've been living on lean cuisines, canned soup, and fast food and i am feeling the effects. what few times i've been able to go out and have fun with my friends, i have had WAY too much to drink and stupidly indulged in a few {or more} cigarettes {a very nasty habit leftover from my college bar years}. i haven't been exercising or taking the puppy boy for his walks. my skin looks terrible, my hair is fried. i am stressed all the time. my sleep pattern is a joke. i have nightmares, i'm not sleeping through the night, i have trouble falling asleep and even more trouble waking up.

all in all, i am a mess.

i am cancelling all of my obligations this weekend and going home. i'm going to catch up on laundry and dvr and reading. i'm going to run everyday. i'm going to eat my mom's homemade veggie soup and sundry other healthy, homecooked offerings. i am not going to have ANY vino. and i'm not taking my blackberry. because i need to be nice to me and be really selfish for a little while.

i'll still be posting, just not as frequently for the next little bit. no worries. the stretch from halloween to christmas is my most favoritest time of the year, so i'll be back. and i will miss y'all terribly. stay warm, chickadees!

Sometimes, you just have to do that to yourself. I did it last weekend, and I'm going to do it again this weekend because I just need to "feed my soul".
Enjoy your YOU time :)

A Recharge is a good name for that. Relax and feel better!
