Pamper Me Missions

I am a work in progress. I am figuring out WHO I am and learning to love me for who I am.  One of the things I realized is that I am all about the other people in my life.  And while there is nothing wrong with that, I need to find a way to make sure I take care of myself, I need to find a way to put myself on the same page as I put others.

So with that in mind, I am going to start pampering myself a little bit.  Each month I will pick some way to pamper and take care of myself.  It could be something simple like taking 10 minutes to meditate or give myself a manicure or learning something new like knitting.  For one month, I will pamper myself at least 3 times per week with the Pamper Me Mission of my choice.  And I am looking for suggestions!  What do you do to pamper yourself?

This month, my mission will be my feet.  I hate shoes and go barefoot as much as possible.  Even in the winter, I would walk Jaxon barefoot as long as there wasn't snow on the ground.  Of course, this leaves my feet SUPER calloused and yucky.

Before Neicy went on vacation, we got together for pedicures so she would have pretty toes.  Her feet were nice and smooth and didn't need too much attention.  My girl had to get a special tool to shave the callouses on the bottoms of my feet.  And not just my heels.  Gross!  She ended up with nasty shavings in her lap.

So, for the month of August, I am going to pamper my feet.  I am going to soak them and pulmice the rough spots off.  I will massage them with lotion and baby them.  I will keep my toes painted pretty.  By the end of the month, I will have pretty and soft feet.   I might even consider wearing shoes more.

I also will have taken care of ME, putting me on the same page as everyone else.  Not first and probably not even second.  But its a start!


  1. good job taking care of you! that is hugely about a dancing lesson...after you take care of the feet you can then abuse them on the dancefloor...smiles.

  2. That sounds so good! And thanks for your comment.

  3. I'm a first-time visitor. I saw your link on Reforming Geek's site and decided to click-through.

    It's important to take care of yourself. I'd suggest a massage at some point!

  4. in some country, they have feet washing and caring service...

    lovely post.

  5. I need to pamper my feet too. They can get pretty gross.

  6. Feet are important to take care of! You should consider GOOD shoes when you finally get around to wearing them ;)
