I Had a LAST Today…

I had a ‘last’ today that I believe has to do with age.

 I am officially declaring that I will never, ever, ever again do my own pedicure!

I don’t know if it’s the arthritis, or the middle age bulge, but huggin my knees up to my chin so that I could see my toes…was excruciating! In fact, I don’t think I accomplished it. I squirmed, and wormed in every possible position. I twisted and turned and even tryed to hold my tootsie’s in position, and it was well, stressful! I don’t believe it was this difficult when I was 9 months pregnant. Of course, I could have possibly weighed less at 9 months pregnant! (I’m not telling)

I’m finished, it’s the end of an era. No more buying cutsie nail polish. From this point on,  I leave it to the nice guy at the mall who shakes his head and smiles, and if he says “ewww”, it’s in a foreign language that I can’t understand.

The blessing in todays pedicure? Even with my reading glasses on, I can’t see what an awful job I did! It’s a subtle blur of “Burgundy Ice”…and for today, it’s going to have to do!


About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
