The Ravages of Moving
I'm pleased to report that I have emptied all the boxes (well except for the bathroom ones cause the bathroom is still not quite finished) and nothing got chipped or broken. I was worried cause I did all my own packing.... a first. But everything survived.
Well almost everything............
I tore one nail off -- almost off -- down to what my mother used to call 'the quick'. Damn it hurt. Everytime I would see my hands the one short nail really bothered me (god bless OCD). So I took 5 minutes one day to file all my nails right down... short - shorter than they have been in years!
Yesterday I took a good long look at myself -- the ravages of moving! I haven't had any time to pluck or mosturize -- primp or preen. I haven't given myself a manicure or pedicure in weeks! UGH I hated the way I looked.
I took the first steps towards mending the ravages of moving by plucking and moisturizing and actually gave myself a manicure. Today I hope to do a pedicure. After all (despite the cool weather and rain) it is strappy sandal season and time to have my toes presentable.
Life is slowly coming together - piece by piece. And that is a very good thing!
