Self Care Recap

Beverly: I did several things on my list.  I made appointments, even went to one already.  The other one is scheduled for April, but at least it is scheduled.  I took off work for almost a whole week around Thanksgiving.  I requested time off around christmas and an extra day to go shopping with my mom.
