But I Don’t Want to Do Spa Stuff at Home
Right around Mother’s Day every year there are a billion articles with recipes for homemade sugar scrubs and facials. The same thing happens at Christmas. Each article has a banner of some sort that proclaims how you can save money and pamper yourself at the same time by having a spa day at home.Â
Spa days are times when women get to go somewhere where no one wants them to do anything. They are days that most of us dream about for weeks before the event.
The place where I get my hair and nails done recently upgraded and redecorated. They now have a beautiful lavender and black color scheme, pillows, comfy chairs, and a bar. Yep, a bar. While I was soaking my feet in the pedi bath thing I was given a fluted glass with orange juice and champagne. Yep, a mimosa.
Massages, hot stone massages, facials, and all the rest are not meant for doing at home. Sometimes my husband runs my bath and brings me wine, and that pampering keeps me going in between the seriousÂ it’s all about meÂ time.
I work really hard to earn money to support my kids, to give them the things they need, and to keep the house running smoothly. When I get a chance to take a day off, I don’t want to do anything for anyone, not even myself. I don’t want to give myself a facial, sugar scrub, or rub my own feet â€”Â I want someone else to do it while I sit back and absorb the luxury of it all.
Preferably with a mimosa in hand.
