When my girls were young, they would periodically respond to something by saying, "That sucks." I would then shoot them the Mom look, and they would quickly add, "... like a vacuum." Somehow, that was supposed to make it OK.
Well, my friends, January sucked like a vacuum. I'm delighted to see the weekend and February. Get some rest this weekend. Play. Read a good book. Turn off the TV. Eat your vegetables. Don't talk on the phone while you're driving. Solo-task. Don't task at all. Exercise. Simplify. Wear your seatbelt. Ask questions. Listen to the answers. Appreciate something. Appreciate someone. Hug. Hug tighter. Bear hugs are really, really good.
I'll see you on Monday.
