Now I'll Get That Pedicure!
After buying those cute little nothings of a sandal(see previous post)
and reading The Peach Tarts
aptly titled "Didn't Your Mama Teach You Better about those Unkempt Feet" post,
I knew I had to do something with these withered old dogs of mine.
After all, why buy pretty, strappy shoes when your feet look like you have been walking barefoot in a gravel pit for the past 10 years?
I've really neglected my feet.
The weather is so crappy up here that they spend a great portion of the year encased in socks and boots or water-proof moccasins.
I rarely think of them unless they are cold or tired.
Other than making sure they don't smell and trimming the nails, (the latter usually after the old man makes a snide comment)I pretty much take them for granted.
I thought about going over to the local nail place but frankly, I was just too embarrassed. (Yes I am one of those women who if I had a maid, I would tidy up before she came.)
So, off I go in search of a PedEgg at my local Walgreens.
No PedEgg in stock.:-(
Instead I bought another product called Pedi-Expert by Revlon.
It looks similar and works on the same principle-good enough for me.
I got it home and went to town on these puppies. Afterwards, I liberally applied some lotion to them.
My feet are so soft and smooth-I am ashamed I let them go for so long.
The old man actually let me put them in his lap and held them while he watched his beloved Red Sox. By God, I think he would have actually massaged them if I'd whined a little.
Anyhow-another marvelous product from my old standby-Revlon.
(Although, I'm pretty sure that had I bought the PedEgg, the results would have been the same):-)
