Another Friday.....

A week since I've been here...again.

Thought I'd be able to have some *puter* time this weekend and get more done.

Ya, I really did.....

Instead, I'll be with my sweet DIL  Melissa tomorrow just spending the day doing......something :)

And that's OK.

Boxes and bins are still stacked, waiting patiently to be unloaded.

Dust cloth is still waiting patiently to eat up dustbunnies.

Vacuum still waiting patiently to eat up...... whatever.

And my awesomely patient BLOG friends,

are still my awesomely patient BLOG friends.

Which made me decide to share this with all of you.

From an email.....

A thought to share...and sooooo true…

"I just finished taking an evening class at Stanford. The last lecture was on the mind-body connection-the relationship between stress and disease. The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. At first everyone laughed, but he was serious.

Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences. Physically this quality “girlfriend time" helps us to create more serotonin-a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of well being. Women share feelings whereas men often form relationships around activities. They rarely sit down with a buddy and talk about how they feel about certain things or how their personal lives are going. Jobs? Yes. Sports? Yes. Cars? Yes. Fishing, hunting, golf? Yes. But their feelings?-rarely. Women do it all of the time. We share from our souls with our sisters/mothers, and evidently that is very good for our health. He said that spending time with a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym.

There's a tendency to think that when we are "exercising" we are doing something good for our bodies, but when we are hanging out with friends, we are wasting our time and should be more productively engaged--not true. In fact, he said that failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking! So every time you hang out to schmooze with a gal pal, just pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for doing something good for your health! We are indeed very, very lucky. Sooooo let's toast to our friendship with our girlfriends. Evidently it's very good for our health."

Have an AWESOME weekend with someone you love.....

See ya Yesterday...

Vicki, don't worry about everything that needs to be done. Follow the advice on that quote and just chill with some friends. This doc was beyond smart!
