I"m learning......


Aren't little sisters supposed to learn from their big sisters?  I am pretty sure I taught my beautiful baby sister about hair, make-up and probably some fashion tips along the way.  I am sure we talked about boys, and I know I came to her rescue when she was in high school a few times...(my nickname is "Bubba" after all)  I know I taught her how to get into nightclubs before she was 21, and how to ignore the guy she liked so he would be more intrigued,  but I never taught her how to take care of herself as a woman, I guess because I never knew how.  During our most recent junk oops I mean garage sale, we were talking about her adventures at Sundance and what some of her experiences may have meant, and of course I made it all about me and realized she was telling me how to take care of myself during my "moon" (mensus) because I didn't know I was supposed to.  I thought I was just supposed to take it like "Bubba"  and keep on truckin' like I always have.  But you know what?  What that little sister of mine was telling me made a lot of sense......that is the one time (or in my case multiple lately) of the month that a woman should listen to her body and take it easy.  So listening to my baby sisters wisdom, I thought, OK, what the hey, I will give it a try.  It is kind of nice......... I got breakfast in bed yesterday and did lay around and read my book in between laundry loads, I went to work today but skipped my yoga class and in between clients I sat and read my book instead of multi-tasking and I have to say, if anything it helped my mood and I am not physically exhaused like I usually am, dragging myself into the house, Jay even noticed.  Stevi said I looked better today.  As women, we never relax until we are ill, and sometimes not even then, try it, you might like it.  Thanks Sis!  I owe you one!  Love you!

I'm afraid that I am the one that taught you to tough it out. Sorry, if only I had it to do all over again - NOT!

Chrissy reallllly loves that tip. hahaha... I'm glad you're taking better care of yourself during your moontime. I really missed the moonlodge last week. My life doesn't allow me to stop and rest as much as I need. :(
