P - Pampered

Wedding Scroll clip artI didn't grow up being pampered. We were a lower middle-class family and any pampering had to be done with my own money, once I started babysitting.

So I found myself in my early 60's, never having had a manicure or a pedicure. I often cut my own hair as well as colored it. My nails were usually short and even clear polish was chipping after the second day of housework.

So when my youngest daughter offered to take me for my first pedicure before we moved to Ecuador, I jumped at the offer.

Needless to say, I loved it and I was hooked. My second pedicure was done during a Caribbean cruise. I waited for a special and grabbed it. Best pedicure ever! Now that I'm living here in Ecuador, the most I've paid for a pedicure is $10 and often I can catch a special to get a mani-pedi for $10. Now that is a bargain! I now can easily afford to pamper myself.


  1. I'm glad to hear about the low price for mani-pedis. I'm sorta addicted too!

  2. 'Pampered' is not a word I know much about.. Hairdressers are rarely let loose on my curls! Glad Ecuador pampers you well.

  3. Yup, the biggest thing is finding a place here that is consistent.

  4. I am blessed...will be hard to return to the states and expensive things!
