I go to the Starbucks across from the nail salon. Buy a venti mocha latte (soy, no whipped cream....lactose intolerant) and then go have a pedicure. It's my secret little vice. I don't usually go to Starbucks. I honestly find it obscene to spend over 5 dollars on a cup of coffee, and yes this from the woman who covets a $12,000 Hermes Birkin bag. But there is coffee and then there is my handbag obsession.

Meanwhile, My favorite part of the pedicure is that reflexology massage. Yes it costs a little extra, but hey I'm worth it. Of course, it also becomes addictive. Better that than pain pills. I could have that massage for hours and never leave the chair. But eventually I do have to return to reality and go about my business.
There is always someone to help and another chore that needs to get done.
But in the meantime, I sip my mocha latte, enjoy my massage, head to the lingerie store for new PJs and pray pray pray for full menopause. Seriously, enough really is enough. At 53 its not like I'm going to want anymore babies and I can always take a calcium pill if I need to.
