The house was quiet today. Sunny had returned to kindergarten, the hubs had returned to work. And as much as I love my boys being at home with me, today it felt good to return to my own routine again. As good as slipping into a pair of old, comfy shoes or cozy yoga pants.
I worked a bit from home today, did some laundry, had a quick lunch that was totally unpretentious but just perfect for me as I did not have to cook for anyone else, chose a beautiful and cool handbag out of some handbags I ordered online, went to the post office and returned the rest, talked to one of my friends on the phone for one hour, and just enjoyed being my own boss today.
I was going to put away the Christmas tree today as we always do that after Twelfth Day. Did I mention that Sunny is not interested in the tree at all? Well, that has changed within the last days. Now he requests me to turn the lights on as soon as he enters the room and then his eyes light up just like the tree when I do so. It is so wonderful to see him love the tree like that! It just took him some time. Now I would like to keep it some more days for him (but I would like to get rid of it). We'll see how long I can still stand it ;-)
So far I am also quite good at sticking to one of the things on my not-really-resolutions list: taking better care of myself. I returned to my skin care routine (something I like to disregard from time to time just because I am lazy), I floss regularly again. This week I will also call my doctors and make appointments for various check-ups. Being important to yourself feels good.
Hope you all had such a good start into the week, too!
