Talking Pamper time

I know when I take some time to make myself look better, I feel better. If I feel better about how I look, then I act better. If I act better then I loose a few pounds. So I was thinking that it is pamper time. Last night I lotioned my um... baboos as my son calls them. I get such dry skin in the winter. I had been neglecting them. I think we should all plan 3 small things we can do this week to make ourselves feel better by looking better. Mine are going to be
1) manicure
2) pedicure
3) eyebrows plucked
4) shave-not just my pits and my ankles either!
1 and 2 kinda go together....

Great idea flower!

This week I will:

1) give myself a spa treatment : manicure, pedicure & facial :

2) read a non-work related or non-educational book - I will read something for the sheer guilty pleasure of it

3) treat myself to a special coffee or tea that I don't normally have-like a latte or frappucino

hmmmm. I don't generally "pamper' myself with goodies like manacures or *shudder* pedicures (no one but the person I am married to should have to look at my feet!) but how about:
brouse an antique store
call (not email) an old friend
listen to some old LP's from the 70's and remember. (I can smell the patchulli now!)

Tonight when I go home from work I plan to have my spa night!

Nice bath with my favorite scent, candles, a glass of wine, followed by a manicure, facial and pedicure Bliss!

And then I will start reading that self-indulgent book that I promised myself

Ellis .. you and Den would relate well with my daughter.

I'm going to get my nails filled and I'm going to shave and take a bath this weekend. So there. Even if getting my nails filled is almost just more like another errand to me because I've been doing it for ... 10 years or something. Yes, my nails are one of my great vanities. Cuz I want to have bootiful hands. And if I don't wear acrylic nails I rip my fingers to pieces. I'm sick like that. Then they bleed and I have bandaids on and they hurt and it looks really stupid .. so .. I wear acrylic nails. *ahem* TMI, I know.

heh heh heh.
You know, when I was really sick last week, I took seven baths in five days. I sort of slacked off with the teeth though.

Raven, does your daughter suffer from severe depression and have a hygiene problem? Or is she just a normal kid?

Last night I was lying in bed after my bath (yes, I actually had a bath last night!) and rubbing some of my new Body Shop Nut Butter cream into my knees and hands. I had this sudden thought that maybe I'd become a girl with nice nails. I spent a huge amount of time rubbing cream into my cuticles and pushing them down. (well, on one hand, anyway! ) They looked really good in the lamp light. Next morning they looked the same as they ever did, so I've decided that being a "nice nail girl" is NOT for me!

well my daughter is anything but "normal" whatever that is anyway.

personally I think she has some theological aversion to water.

one of these days when she speaks again, maybe I'll ask.
