Wonderful weekends

Ok, so i know i'm cheating with the title since just last week i posted wonderful wednesdays but... i feel really good these days and things are looking up.
Is it that i started taking prozac again, lol? or is it that i've been listening to "i love honor and respect myself" positive affirmations from http://www.mythoughtcoach.com/? Or is it that i've been getting out and walking as many days per week as i can? or is it a slight attempt at reading the upper room more often? or i sit my new lightened work schedule? or my yoga? Maybe it's all of the above. Whatever it is, i'm glad for it and i'm trying to not let that nagging..."yeah, but it wont last" feeling come and haunt me. trying REALLY hard : P
Anyhow, this past weekend, we really enjoyed ourselves. Friday was Christophe's 40th bday 8^0
So that evening Alex and I prepared a special dinner (she had been planning out the menu for over a week!). We set the dining room table with nice linens and candles, made cakes that alex had chosen special non-extinguishing candles for and had a nice dinner. Then Rémi and Alex played guitar (rem) and sang kareoke style (alex) in turn til they were blue in the face.
And to top it all off, the neighbors from down the street who knew it was his 40th and also knew he didnt want to celebrate had asked me if they could come over with a bottle of champagne jsut to at least acknowledge this rite of passage ; ). So we had devised a plan to send them a secret signal so they could come over towards the end of the singing right before the cake. It was nice and laid back.
Then Saturday we went out to eat at an all you can eat buffet - but this one is a buffet to end all buffets! With foie gras poêlée and steak cooked right under your nose and all kinds of yummy stuff! And after that we went bowling. I havent been bowling in YEARS!!!!!
I suck bad! i lost - yes, lost! even to alex! lol
But it was a blast.
And sunday, we all just hung out and did our own ting. i went for a nice walk with Easy. it was gorgeous out! I had on a coat and sweater and tank top but had to strip off until i was in the tank! can you believe that?! in february!
Soooooo nice!
I think i can get used to this ;)

Sounds like the new work schedule is working well for you. I'm glad that you are feeling more relaxed, that will make your life much happier. Just live it one day at a time and enjoy the moment.

Awesome. I am so glad about all of it and I don't care why any of this has come about. Enjoy you new attitude and do not worry about it ending...that prevents you from full enjoyment of the moment. tell Christophe...na-na-na-na-nana.....he had to join the ranks of the 4th decaders with me!!! Love you, Di
