The universe is sending me spa stuff!
First! In a raffle drawing two weeks ago, I won a gift certificate for a spa manicure and pedicure.
Then! Last Monday morning I was Caller #8 -- who knows what possessed me to run to the phone, as I had a mouthful of toothpaste -- to our local news station, and won a gift certificate towards services at another local spa.
And! The moms' club I'm in had a Spa Night last Thursday, at which we all got to try various luxurious products that smelled intoxicatingly good. Or maybe that was the Pinot Grigio. In any case, when I got home, Mr. S. began singing about "de lime and de co-co-nut."
Sure, there are people who do the mani/pedi thing as a matter of routine; I am not one of 'em. I like to get a pedicure at the beginning of New England's "exposed toe" season -- roughly now, if it weren't 50 degrees out today -- and another in midsummer. So it's nice to have them in the bank, as it were.
Better than a sharp stick in the eye, no?
