Today I decided to treat myself to a bit of normalcy. I am fully vaccinated, but am still hesitant about things being “completely normal.” I worry that my kids are not vaccinated and am conscious of that, but today, my kids are with their dad. The sun is shining and I know spring will soon be here to stay! Perfect time for a manicure and a pedicure! Sadly, this was way overdue. Before covid, this was something that I would do often, a little way to treat myself. I thought today was the perfect day to start the routine again!
I walked into my favorite place and I was happy to see the same faces. I chatted with the owner and told her how happy I was that they were able to make it through. She told me that they were closed for 4 months and that a lot of the older customers had not yet started coming back, but she is hopeful that with the vaccines and the warmer weather, business would be back to normal soon.
I enjoyed choosing some spring colors for my nails. I sat and relaxed. I loved feeling the normalcy of it all and felt comfortable in this environment. This is definitely something I have missed, probably more than restaurants. I am hopeful that each day will be a little bit more normal than the last. I am hopeful that the pools will be open this summer and when they open and I am sitting in the sunshine without a care in the world, my toes will be brightly painted for summer because I will definitely keep this routine going!
