Big gay weekend

Pridefully wonderful Sunday...but I didn't take even one single photo. Good thing Brett and Anna did....
at the end of the rainbow
Look who rode with me in the parade! Welcome to P-town, Rigo !
Rigo and Lelo

Even Wink had a good time...
Wink gets her pride on!

Pride was fun and reaffirmed by strong belief in community. Portland is such a great city. 50,000 people are estimated to have turned out for the parade. That just kicks ass.

So. This week? I'm taking care of myself, my stress and my mental health. I've fried myself out, and my hair, skin, eye twitch and general demeanor show it. Having blueberries every morning, detoxing with pom juice and flax seed, taking ultimate vitamins, walking twice a day and drinking as much water as I can. Gave myself a facial with my super favorite Papaya Enzyme Peel this morning, and I'm already feeling better. That eye twitch is a true physical sign of my body telling me PAY ATTENTION TO ME. I got the message! I'm taking care of myself this week. Repeat three times.

I did the same thing; facial, water, etc. Just too much go, go, go here lately.

Glad your weekend turned out so well! I miss Portland sometimes.

I need to take some of your advice and do some serious detoxifying!

Glad you had a good weekend, and glad you're paying attention to your body's signals.

That was you in that Coop? We crossed paths and I didn't even know it.

See now I expected to see you waltzing down the street with an edger. I know you'd have to borrow one, but still...

I like that balloon rainbow.

Good that you are taking care of yourself. Why not schedule a massage just for good measure?

self care rocks. i'm busy with home care this week. vaccuming, dusting, and all that stuff that has been (literally) piling up!

I tried to sleep in today -but was up by 8!

So sorry we missed you at the parade, but I felt so yucky, (and not from partying the night before...) Plus, I couldn't get out of going to work Sunday and knew I would be completely exhausted.

I need to take a hint from you; I need some of that self-care, but how????? when I have so many to care for.
