Scheduled a totally spur of the moment pedi this afternoon (and that's after calling four nail salons :0P). The salon had this nice massage chair and the pedi came with a leg and foot massage. Totally what I needed.
I felt so energized after that pampering that I was able to do a lot tonight after the little one's bed time. When I say a lot, I mean A LOT. Wash dishes, checked. Hang laundry, checked. Fold clothes, checked. Scrub kitchen floor, checked. Vacuum living room, kitchen and guest room, checked.
The amazing thing was, I did it all with a clear and focused mind, unlike my usual 'I'm so tired, ready to drop, wanna get this over with" state. And it took me less time too.
I guess I just want to write this down as a reminder to myself, that there are times when I need to take time out for ME, that I need not feel guilty/bad about it. I need to remember that a little ME time goes a long way :0)
