My, oh my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin’ my way

That tune makes me feel so happy! …like there’s a bluebird on my shoulder…
After reading my own post from yesterday, I decided that it’s time to take some immediate action to rise out of this midlife-induced mental fog that’s been clouding up my days.
I’m attacking this thing from both ends…from the inside out…and…from the outside in.
Let’s start with the outside. We all need a little physical maintenance once in a while. Lately, I haven’t recognized the person staring back at me in the mirror. Her Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah was dull. So, flipping though a magazine, this ad caught my eye…
Instruction to my hairdresser as I shoved the magazine page into her hand… “make me look like this.” A few zip, zip, zips..and I have a new doo-dah! Now, if I could only get her model body, too. Gotta start somewhere!
On to the insides. Now that I’m not spending every weekend at my parents’ house, I definitely need to re-connect with some people and talk about subjects unrelated to my mom and my job. Tonight, I’m headed over to my sister’s house and we’re both going to hit the town for a little Zip-A-Dee-Ay. Both of us need it!
What are you doing this weekend?
And with that, my friends, this A-Z Challenge concludes.
