Random Words I Type... My 1st post for '09

I have been on vacation from work since December 23rd and I'm in no hurry to return, although my 1st day back will be Monday, January 12th. *sigh*

I sit in front of a PC all damned day and though I've been side eyeing my PC at home since I've been on vacation this is the 1st since the New Year that I've decided to type and catch up on blog reading.

I missed this.

Vacation has afforded me the opportunity to rearrange and clean up my home. I've shopped. I've gone to the movies (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). I've repainted my kitchen a brilliant yellow. My home is airy, spacey and refreshed.

I've been reading. I've been writing. I've been watching TV (Oprah, Bravo, TLC and yes even some Lifetime).

I've been feeling Musiq's new CD On My Radio and Alice Smith's For Lover's, Dreamers & Me.

I've been reading Crystelle Mourning and O Magazine.

I've been writing short stories about women on the rebound. You know I'm single now and anyone I meet is bound to be my rebound dude....

I must admit that I've been enjoying the company of a special friend. He could be a rebound dude or he could be the real deal. It all remains to be seen and we're having so much fun.

I've been jotting down my monthly list of fun things to do. It's my goal this year to escape the rat race. I want to live each day purposefully even if I'm laying on my couch watching TV - may I watch a meaningful program that will edify me.

All in all, I've been relaxing and taking time away from everything, taking care of me.

It is nice to have you back.
It seems like you have been enjoying yourself.

I recently started watching Oprah again on my days off. I hadn't watched her in years. I forgot how good her shows can be and much better than some of the other mess on TV.

A fun list is a wonderful idea.

I forgot so is living each day purposely even when sitting around.
I have to try that one too.

Ahh the finality of a vacation can be so horrible. I know I came back to work and wanted to walk right back out. I hope this year is a good one for you. Hope things work out for the best and you keep doing what you do. Peace and Blessings.

Thank you Queen. I have been enjoying these quiet moments alone and those when I'm not alone...
This week of Oprah shows is no joke. I'm so loving her right now.

Liryc... I'm not excited about stepping back into that place. Usually I love going back to work but this time I'm so not feeling it. Thank you for the new year blessings.
