I can claim I'm treating myself like a pat on the back for successfully ushering my kids off to college. Apparently, I'm not concerned with two out-of-state tuitions or other such expenses. Wonder how my husband would feel about that?
I suppose I can justify it as follows:
I'm not a Starbuck's freak (not meant as an insult) so I save $4.50 a day on beverages. If I multiply that by 7 days, that's a total of $31.50 a week. Actually, I don't even know how much an average Starbuck's latte costs but I know my friend Sue pays a lot for her drinks. My nails are only $25 plus I tip Vilma $5. I'm ahead of Sue by $1.50 on the week!
So, what is it about the shiny, glossiness that I'm currently crazy about? I haven't a clue! I don't even want to get started with my toes which haven't seen a naked day in God knows how long! Years?
It's a very weird feeling for me to realize this; someone who never cared about it in the past unless it was for some fancy shmancy occasion. When WAS the last shmancy thing?
Okay. I have to get back to Juliet (by Anne Fortier) while my nails dry. It looks like I'm taking the whole afternoon off!
