New Skin

January 12th, 2012

I’m craving things. Surface things. A salon cut and color. A spa treatment and a mani-pedi. Luxury sheets. New lingerie. A weekend away. Nothing fundamental to survival or even happiness. These aren’t the hunger pangs of a starved soul.┬áMore like the twitching of a creature in its midwinter sleep. The first itch of the old skin.

What are you craving?

    All of the above. Lucky for me a wonderfully generous friend has invited me to keep her company at spa the first weekend in February. Now if I can just last that long without killing one of my boys or myself. Hope you can find a way to getaway.

    A good house PURGE! (And then, perhaps, a good house cleaning… not done by me.)

    I am craving all of the above too! Must be the time of year.

    I’m craving Lots of things.. All of the above plus organization. Cleanliness. Good juju. The touch of my love and his sweet words. More gin. Laughing until my sides hurt. Listening to the ocean at midnight.
