I don't do enough self-care. I assume most people - yourselves included - don't either.
Honestly, professional pedicures are the extent of my self-care. I have never had a massage, or a spa visit. Clearly I don't even get haircuts.
My problem with my feet is not doing it enough. Literally.
Age and overuse have beaten those fuckers down. It would take a lot to get them to 'normal'. But 2-3 times per year won't probably do the trick
I've made a decision for once a month.
Should you have not had a pedicure, I highly recommend it. My friend Becky tried to get me to go back in - yes, I remember - 2011, but I put it off...............until 2015.
Even then, I have only been a handful of times - the last one being in Provincetown in May. The time before that, right before sheltering in place 14 months prior.
I am thrilled at how my feel are currently looking today, but I know that it won't last if I don't keep up with it all.
Even better news - the place I have gone now provides alcohol.
I mean, they always had a bar, but now one drink is provided with the pedicure. I'd say it's "free", but I also know I'm actually paying for it, but they bring it right to me.
Hey - if folks are touching my feet, there is zero reason I shouldn't be taking the edge off with booze.
