I have been so busy the past month, and the next few months don’t look any less busy. We’ve had doctor/coordinator/evaluations scheduled every week, and when there’s a day that’s free, something inadvertently comes up.
One of my friends manged to catch me on the phone the other day, and she reminded me that I needed to take care of myself too. I almost laughed at that, but then I realized that she’s right; I really don’t do anything for myself! It took me a moment, and then I asked her what that would look like. How sad it that? I don’t even know what ‘doing something for myself’ even means! She suggested a spa manicure and pedicure, but I don’t know if that’s really me. I’ve only had a pedicure once in my life, and that was on a cruise The Daddy and I went on back in the dark ages (think Titanic). I suppose I could give it a try again… I’m sure not every spa personnel feels the need to comment on the ‘amazing callouses’ and the fact that I ‘obviously don’t wear shoes often’ in the earshot of every other customer, right? However, sitting there with a bunch of people isn’t really my style, not to mention the fact I absolutely do NOT have an extra 2 hours to spend sitting in a chair. My friend nicely pointed out to me that I don’t have to go outside the home to get a manicure or pedicure, and she reminded me that I can do it myself and on my time, especially since they have so many great products out there now. I have to admit that it sounds nice to take some time for me, and my nails (and feet!) could definitely use some attention!
