Last year, Ricardo gave me a gift certificate to a nice spa here in town. I have been holding on to it since then. Savoring it, if you will. He keeps asking me when I'm going to use it; when I first received it, I told him I was waiting until spring, but spring has come and gone, and he's beginning to wonder. The truth is, I am so indecisive that I don't know what spa service I want to use it for. A pedicure? Massage? Facial? New hairstyle? I don't often go to a spa, so it is such a luxury for me and I would hate to "waste" it on something that I am not going to love.
This is akin to the feeling I have every time we go to Sonic. No matter that I have the entire menu memorized, I still have to sit and look and take my time. Because it would be an absolute shame, a pity, I tell ya, to be rushed into ordering something I don't really want.
So anyway, I think I've ruled out the facial. It sounds nice, it really does, and my skin could definitely use some treatment, but I think it needs more like several weeks' worth of treatments as opposed to just a one-time facial. Something heavy duty, like a peel or something equally painful that you see on those makeover shows. Fun.
There's always the pedicure.....and I LOVE pedicures. Something about them makes me feel all fancy and girly and pampered, not to mention that I have really awful feet that could use some TLC. But the pedicure that I want is $75....replete with a wrap, leg massage, the works. Do I really want to spend most of the gift certificate on that?
There is a slight chance that I'm over-thinking this just a tad.
Then there is the matter of the hair style. The layers in my hair have grown out and at the moment I have no style at all. I'm way overdue for a haircut. After talking with my friend and looking through a magazine of short hairstyles, these are the ones that stand out:
Or this (sorry, it's fuzzy):
I'm thinking these are all the same basic hair cut, each with its own variation. My hair is naturally curly, so I don't want to look like a poodle if I cut it like this and then leave it curly.
So. I will probably end up going with a pedicure and a massage. Maybe. Oh, and I've never had a massage, so I'm a little nervous about that whole experience. Those of you that get them on a regular basis...what am I in for? Are they really as amazing as I've heard?
Such a dilemma. Tell me, what would you do with it?
