In defiance of the ridiculous hours I’ve put in this week, I took the afternoon off today. Well, I took a couple of hours off and then came home and worked some more. That customer issue from Monday is still ongoing and the lady behind it is making serious waves. I think a discussion with my boss is in order because she is expecting things that we cannot, and have never claimed to be able to deliver.
Anyway, so this afternoon I got to treat myself to a manicure and pedicure at the Red Door Spa. I don’t think I would ever in my life spend that kind of money to do it again, but since this was a secret shopper thing, I’ll be reimbursed, so it was basically free. Except for the time it took to fill out their survey online when I got home. And the 4-5 weeks it will take to get repaid.
It was nice though. I got their Sea Spa pedicure, complete with a tingly peppermint mask on my feet. And a pretty dark burgandy color for my toenails that, after the first coat looked frighteningly hot pink. But luckily the second coat cured that.
The lady talked a little too much for my liking….I just want to relax, not carry on a conversation. She talked me into a french manicure for my fingernails. I’ve never had one and since my nails are actually all relatively long right now, I agreed to it. I’m not sure I like it though. I just don’t see myself as a french manicure kind of girl.
I stopped by Kohls, too, and picked up a few of their little patio table things that were on clearance. And….not one, but TWO new purses. The most amazing part, however, is that I didn’t buy any shoes. I didn’t even bother to look.
I desperately need some time away from the computer. I swear my eyeballs feel like they are on fire lately. Hopefully this weekend I’ll get a real break and can stay away from it for a few days. Knowing me, that’s highly unlikely. Not that I won’t get a break but that I’ll stay off the computer. 😛
