Deep Breath

Things I can do while Huz is out of town:

1. Go to dinner with a colleague and a student - drink a papa patron margarita the size of a fish bowl and have a good time being me. Crazy, fun me.

2. Talk to Huz before going to bed and enjoy hearing him say he loves me and wishes he hadn't gone so that he could be with me instead.

3. Think about booking a massage this weekend so that I can treat myself to some relaxation and bodily care.

4. Pack my gym clothes so that I'll go workout at the gym after work (I've been really bad about this for the last month and know I'd feel better about myself if I started being more consistent again).

5. Plan on going to yoga Saturday morning by myself at a new place in town. It has all hardwood floors and is specifically made for yoga, as opposed to the entryway to a building where I've been going on-campus (albeit free, it's still not quite the relaxing, soothing aesthetics I was looking for).

6. Plan on going to a couple's house for dinner on Saturday night. This way I can bond with them on a personal level, not just a deep theological level like the other night.

7. Ultimately, prove to myself that I'm strong, smart, independent and beautiful without the help of Huz telling me so. I'm learning to lean on myself and to be my own best friend. This is a good thing.

[Update: one hour swedish massage booked tonight. Oh yeah!]
