Under My Umbrella

About a week ago I wrote about how sometimes in life 'when it rains, it pours.'  Then I talked about the world not crumbling if I take a break.  If I take some time for myself.  Something that is hard for me.  But today...

... today I pulled out that umbrella.  Several of them.  After work today I packed up my stuff and booked it out of school.  I drove to a cafe/creamery.  I ordered a 1/2 pistachio 1/2 Creme Brule gelato and an iced chai tea (yum yum!).  I sat down at a big booth and pulled out my laptop.  I plugged in some headphones and made a playlist.

That's a lot of umbrellas.  Umbrellas that for the next hour and a half I am enjoying.  All by myself.  Something I don't normally do, taking a break, time for me.  I told someone at work that I had a "me date" after school.  Time to recharge my batteries

I am going to sit and blog, catch up on some blogs that I haven't had time or energy to read.  I brought a book, or maybe I will just sit and... just sit.  Who knows.  But what I do know is that the storm is easing.  Even if just for this hour and a half the storm doesn't seem so bad.

And you know what?

For now, that's enough.

I hope you all have a chance to pull out your umbrella, to recharge and take some time for you.
