For Christmas, DH gave me a gift certificate to a spa for a massage and a facial. It expired this week, so I decided I better use it on Monday when DH was home to watch the kids. I had much angst over leaving L for so long, but pumped some milk and made the appointment for the afternoon when she's usually napping anyway.
I am so glad I went ;) L did fine. And I had a fabulous hot stone massage . . . and remembered how much I loved massages and wondered why it had been years since I so indulged myself! I had never had a facial before, but it was very nice. It was called an organic facial and she used all sorts of natural stuff - like cucumbers and honey and almonds and who knows what else. It smelled yummy and my face was soft and dreamy when she was finished.
It'll probably be years before I go again, but it was a nice treat yesterday.
