A little makeover was just what I neeed today
Friday, December 20, 2013
I woke up really desperate today. I've been like a shut-in for a month since my complicated cataract surgery and I really was starting to look as bad as I felt. So I called my daughter first thing this morning and booked an emergency appointment at her hair salon. Last night she had offered but I didn't think I'd be up to going out. As I have guests coming on Sunday, my Weight Watchers Christmas party on Tuesday, and brunch with my family on Christmas day, I realized I needed help if I was going to be a happy hostess or party goer in the next week. So I packed up a nice present for the gals at the salon, made sure I had tip money in hand and found my way to what turned out to be a total transformation! I told the salon owner on the way out that I wasn't the same woman leaving as the one that came in earlier that morning. That's for sure!! In fact I felt so good that I was able to pass up a beautiful tray of holiday cookies that my cookie neighbor brought over this afternoon.
Usually I just about tear the wrapping off her cookie trays the minute they enter my home, but today I was able to put it aside and instead served her coffee and some Soy Joy bars, and a crispy sweet rice bar that she had never tasted before. Not only was she happy with the snacks but they were low in calories and WW points, and healthy choices besides. My whole day changed with my new hairdo this morning. It pays to treat ourselves sometimes.
We deserve it!!
