I Adore Being Pampered, Don't You?

Monday evening, I went to NorthPointe Health and Wellness Campus for a mammogram. The technicians were having difficulties with the testing equipment so I had to reschedule my appointment. My return appointment was this morning at 10:00AM. (I'm not working today because my boss is getting his daughter set up at Marquette University in Milwaukee for her first year of college).

After the procedure this morning, the technician handed me an envelope which contained a twenty-five dollar gift certificate for use at the facility. The gift came with an apology for the need for me to make the second trip for my mammogram.

Wow! Now you're talking. I strolled to the spa within the same building and asked if it would be possible for me to have a manicure right then and there. It was my lucky day. Within a few minutes, I was having my very first professionally done manicure ever.

It was so much fun. I relaxed and visited with the manicurist and others in the spa area while I was treated like a queen. The hardest thing I had to do was to pick the nail polish color.

So, my dahlings. I'll be holding my nose in the air for the entire next week, walking with an attitude and I most certainly won't be doing anything that might disturb the finish on my nails.

(What do you do to treat yourself?

Gully: Lon does anything and everything that needs to be done with few exceptions...and no, you can't have him.

I am in such need of a day of pampering. Big J gave me a gift certificate for a Mani-Pedi, but I just haven't made the time to go. I believe that once things return to normal around here, (sometime next week), I will make good use of that thoughtful gift. Good for you for making time for yourself!

darksculptures: Oh, please do use that gift certificate ASAP. I've never had a pedicure but I saw a chair at the spa designed for sitting and enjoying having your feet pampered. I bet that's better than a manicure!
I hope things slow down to you can take time for yourself. If not, just do it anyway!
