The kids didn’t have school today. Monday is also off, as it’s May long weekend. I guess they decided to give them an extra day off. Interesting. I don’t think we had as many days off when I was a kid. Now it feels like every second weekend is a long weekend for one reason or another. That must be super difficult for families where both parents work. I mean I guess you get a lot of advance notice, but it’s still quite a lot of time to have to book off.
Mom and I went for pedicures today. She took me for my birthday gift. We went to a small spa on Whyte Avenue. It was nice. I can’t do nearly as good a job to myself! I got a really pretty royal blue colour. It was a pretty nice place. I think it was called Healing Waters Spa, or something along those lines. The lady doing my feet was pretty quiet, the one doing my mom’s talked more. She liked my Mrs Potts tattoo! It wasn’t the fanciest place ever, but it wasn’t one of those places where they line you up and do a whole bunch of people in the same room where you feel like just another nameless person and you can barely understand the person doing your feet and they practically ignore you anyway. It was a little room with an alcove that had a sort of stone bench thing with cushions and pillows that you climb up onto. There was only a spot for my mom and I, no one else. It probably wasn’t the best for my mom’s back, but it was relaxing and Mom and I visited and I had a cup of raspberry-green tea. It felt like getting pampered, which is a nice and rare feeling, so that’s good!
Afterwards, we went to a shoe store on Whyte that had some very nice sandals! I really wanted a pair, they were adjustable and looked like they actually might fit me,(I have very wide and thick feet and have a difficult time finding shoes that fit me!)but they were all very expensive brands. (For as long as I can remember, I’ve had to buy expensive brands of shoes, because they’re the only ones that will fit me!) Mom found a pair of shoes that she has been looking for for a long time. She uses them for gardening and they protect her feet, but they’re still sandals. They had the type of soles that she’s been looking for, because almost all of the other ones had rubber-type soles and these ones were more of a suede type of material. Much nicer. I guess she’s been looking for a new pair for a while now, over a year!
After the shoe store, we went to my parent’s house. My dad was able to get the back of my watch off ( I received my new watch band and then the battery was dead. However, I couldn’t get the back off of it to find out what kind of battery it needed.). He even had the type of battery that I needed! So I now have a working watch! Yay!!! Oh oh!! Two things…I’m starting to fall asleep as I write and my son just woke up. I’m super tired now. Before I went home we ran to Chatters and picked up nail polish that matches our pedicures. They had an excellent sale going n where you could get 2 bottles of OPI nail polish for only $10!! Great price right?! Well, I just sat here sleeping for over an hour!! I really need to get to bed. I am soooooo sleepy!! Night all! 💤😴
