Simple pleasures

My husband suggested I should go get a pedicure today. Not sure if that was a subliminal message about how my feet look πŸ€” or a general recommendation to relax. I’ll choose to believe the latter.

As you know, the last few weeks have not been so good for me mentally. Unfortunately, I am still there. Some days are worse than others. But, that’s my life. Anyway, I am sitting here with my feet in the water and the instrumental music playing. I really want to close my eyes and drift into la-la land. But I know that the lady doing my feet will want to talk. So, I’ll keep myself occupied by writing to you.

I am so glad I am the only one in here getting my feet done. Ever since I can remember, I have always been self-conscious of my feet. I never used to go get pedicures because I was afraid people would stare. Now that I am 50, I say 🀬 the people. At least I still have feet to walk on. Ugly or not, I’ll still come here to enjoy some of the simple pleasures of life.

One thing I am hoping though. I pray that I don’t run into anyone I know – or knows me. I have the look of a ‘depressed’ woman today – no makeup, shorts and a tshirt, hair all over the place and the look of IDGAF. (sigh) I try to look presentable whenever I am out (which is not too often) because I represent my husband as well as myself. Today just isn’t the day. So, I will refrain from going to my favorite store (Publix) and head straight home.

I am impressed with my nail tech. She only asked me 2 questions. I guess she sees that IDGAF look and held off on friendly conversation. 😏 Hummm, that means I could have closed my eyes. Oh well, I am halfway through my pedi now. Which is great because 3 people just walked in. I don’t want to feel crowded. And I surely don’t want it to be someone I know. πŸ™‚

Until next time … be blessed.
