If massages were free, I’d be happier

My relaxing day has put me in the mood for a nap.  I’m resisting the urge.  My too leisurely morning didn’t leave me enough time for a manicure and a pedicure, so I skipped the manicure.  My toes (and poor callused feet) are more important to me, and I have a tendency to ruin my nails within two hours of a manicure anyway.  But my pedicure was quite nice.  From there I bought a suitcase and barely made it to my massage appointment on time.  Which was…interesting.  I think I like the idea of a spa (soft relaxing music, sounds of running water, quiet and peaceful rooms) more than I care about the actual services.  The massage was nice, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t feel the effects of it anymore (and didn’t, really, once i got up from the table).  A pedicure is so much more satisfying.  (Look at my pretty toes!)  And much less expensive.


  1. What? No pictures of the pretty toes? You said to look at ’em! 😉 I got a full-body massage once ever, and it was the most fab thing evah. I felt like wet noodle lady for the rest of the day.

    Pictures of my toes will appear once I find the USB cable for my camera. 🙂

    I felt wet-noodly for about ten minutes. And then I woke up. Maybe my masseuse wasn’t as good as yours?

    I feel the same way you do about massages. They’re great at the moment, but then what? No lasting effect. Unlike a lovely pedicure. (Remember that spa treatment mani/pedi we had in Mexico–dark room, music, giggles?)
