I spend most of my time caring for others and have done that in some form or fashion for most of my life. The biggie that I do for myself is a visit to the hair salon every few months. But, my niece Becky gave me a gift certificate for a pedicure for my last birthday. Honestly I had forgotten about it, but when I changed purses a couple of weeks ago, the certificate was in the bottom of my old handbag.
Today, I got my pedicure. I keep polish on my toe nails and I do try to buff the callouses every once in a while, but that is about as good as it gets. I am barefoot during my working hours and usually at home too. I had forgotten how wonderful a pedicure can be...and those chairs! My my! While the chair rolled the kinks out of my back, and the manicurist massaged my feet and legs I almost fell asleep. She also polished my nails way neater than I ever do.
So that's it. A promise made to myself today, a pedicure once a month. I can't believe how much more relaxed I have been this afternoon and guess what! My hair stylist will be back at work after having her baby and I am getting my hair done next Friday. Wow! I am so spoiled, so pampered.
It has been a good Friday. Seeing old friends tomorrow evening, this weekend is going well.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
