I just started two weeks of vacation – or staycation since I'm not going anywhere – and I kicked it off with a pedicure yesterday. I hadn't been planning to get one but was out for a walk in my neighbourhood and passed my local mani/pedi place and popped in on the spur of the moment.
I haven't had a pedicure since RA hit. To be honest, I've been a little scared to get one since my feet have been so tender. But they've been feeling somewhat better lately, and the weather has been awesome here, so I decided to go for it. I just told the pedicurist to please be careful, that my feet were sore, especially the left one, and she was great about it. I love getting pedicures – they're my favourite spa treat. I love having my feet done, I love seeing my toes painted afterward, and those pretty, pretty toes basically last for two weeks, so they're worth every penny!
Tomorrow, I continue my spa treats with a visit to a spa that has different water pools – a salt pool, hot tub and cold plunge pool. There, I'll be getting a head-to-toe glow treatment, including a facial and hair conditioning, plus a 90-minute massage. Woohoo! I am so looking forward to lounging around in the pools (except maybe the cold one), then getting the treatments.
I can already feel myself destressing, and that's pretty much the point of this vacation!
