I’ve been thinking a lot about why I felt such relief at the end of the day yesterday.
Why did I feel my body relax when my dentist appointment was done and the cleaner finished cleaning my house?
Maybe because I don’t like going to the dentist or the doctor for anything (and I’m anticipating my 6-month checkup with my hematologist in a couple of weeks?). I do like having my house cleaned, though!
I think the anticipation I’d felt the day before got the better of me as I went around making sure the house was ready for the cleaner and that I was ready for my dentist appointment.
On the other hand, I was looking forward to today’s self-care dates, some might call then indulgent, for my hair and a mani-pedi.
So, here I am at my appointment. Waiting to be pampered on the Friday before I go back to school.
