Hubby bought me the above-mentioned page-a-day calendar for Christmas. I keep it on my desk at work.
The ever so helpful suggestion for Thursday, January 17th? (SHUT UP. I know it's February 5th today. I've been meaning to write this post for 3 weeks now.)
"ALONE TIME--Women who do too much do it more efficiently, more creatively, and better when they take two or three hours completely for themselves once a month. This month, find a way to be in water. Swim, soak in a tub, take a long shower, soak your feet, or even wash dishes by hand--slowly. Let it be known that interruptions are not allowed during these precious times."
Really?! Are you f'ing kidding me?!
There are oh so many things wrong with this that I don't quite know where to begin...
1. Swim? Because putting on a bathing suit is just soooo not stressful in itself. Especially in January, when the skin is whiter, the legs are hairier and the fat is heftier. GREAT tip.
2. Soak your feet? Ummm...Why does an image of an old lady in a rocking chair immersing her gnarly corns and bunions spring to my mind?
3. Slowly wash dishes by hand? Is there anyone out there who would find this even remotely appealing? Anyone? Bueller?
Ack. I'm SO DONE with this calendar.
