WIDOW EXTREME SELF CARE

I think I am growing accustomed to treating myself to indulgences.  Pedicures top my list and now I'm thinking this needs to be reclassified as a necessity.  Face it ... I can't see that well and it's getting harder and harder to reach down that far.

My sister is here and we have been giving in to luxury items.  Facial.  WOW!  What a difference that made in my skin!  So I scheduled two more before I depart my island.  Hey!  That's about the only part of my body that anyone else sees.   Which brings me to hair.  Since Mr. Ralph died in early May, I have been having my hair cut every 3-4 weeks.  I used to postpone until I was nearly crazy trying to get it to cooperate (6-8 weeks).  Definitely a luxury.  In December, my friend from Portland (who works at a VERY upscale salon) gave me a more updated cut which gives me a lot more bounce and curl.  Wash and wear.

And tomorrow is a massage!  Totally decadent but gosh do I feel great after.  Maui has a massage school where you can go be a guinea pig for $25.  I think I will indulge in a monthly treat.  It is good for my soul.

Now ... how to get rid of the age spots on my hands.....

  1. For me, too, pedicures are a necessity. I can't bend that far anymore and to think when I was in my teens I used to bit my toenails! (Laugh all you want, I still do. I wanted to keep my fingernails bit free and I did.) Getting a pedicure was the first indulgence I did after Don passed away and it was the first time I'd ever gotten one in my life.

    Getting a massage is on my bucket list. In fact, going to a weekend spa is on my bucket list. All that stuff---I'm thinking---is good for your morale.
