Pampered and More Positive

I decided to lock myself downstairs in my little suite with a big bottle of water and just pamper myself a little. I did my promised pedicure, first. I really worked my feet over, removed a little dead skin, used cuticle remover on my toenails (boy! what a difference that stuff made!) then painted my toenails a soft, milky pink. Then I applied pretty flower decals to my big toe nails and topped everything with top coat. While it was drying, I took a good look at my manicure and it looked terrible after all that abuse. So, I decided to do a manicure, too.

I soaked off all the glitter and all my patches soaked off too. My poor nails looked all beat to shit and I didn't think that patching them up again would do much good so I grabbed a grinder and did what had to be done. After I shaped and smoothed them I painted my nails a pretty grey that looks quite smashing on short nails. I think that a little pampering and some time to myself was just what I needed. I heartily endorse it for anyone who is feeling a little stressed, tempted to stuff face or having a bad day. (Week...)

Food is really good. I am well under. Water is going down. I'll end the day a little short, but I have swilled a gallon so I am calling it good. Dinner was some steamed cauliflower, salad and a shrimp dish I am working on. I think that I am getting close to a working recipe. I have a few ideas and I need to try them out. I am trying to get a lot of flavour without excess calories and sodium. The sodium thing is difficult... Soy is a part of the whole thing. Soy and shrimp are a match made in nom heaven.

It is supposed to rain and snow this weekend. Blech! Moar snow. Spring can't come too soon for me. I was perusing my new Burpee catalog and I want so many plants. I have no room for even a fraction of the ones I want. Condos aren't exactly huge garden spots. And... Let's face it. I am not the greenest thumb in the world. I can do a respectable job with easy to grow flowers like petunias, pansies, African daisies and so forth. I murder snapdragons and can't grow food to save my life. If I had to live on the produce of my garden, I would be damned skinny. lol

Tired. I am ready for a good night's sleep. And this sleeping so late business has to end. I didn't get up until eight, this morning. I am such a sloth. :P


  1. I had to go back a couple of posts to catch up, darlin'! Sounds like the day of pampering and water drinking was a perfect way to come back to yourself and get back on that horse. Keep up the good work, my friend. I KNOW you will reach your goals.

  2. I wish I had the motivation and the energy for a manicure, pedicure. I just feel blah about that stuff right now. I'll eventually get to it though. Maybe after a long bath today.

  3. I so need to do this. 8 months pregnant, and I'm not sleeping so well. It's starting to show. Some quiet time, a mommy movie, mani and pedi sound like just the thing.

    Won't get to it this weekend thought. Mini bit is a flower girl tomorrow, and the rehearsal is tonight in a town 2 hours away!
