Yes I'm sure we'd all love to leisurely pop out the door and head to our favorite salon for a nice mani & pedi. Hahahahaha...I'd love to figure out what to do with my two little ones while that happens! And imagining them waiting patiently while I get a pedicure done? Ha! Instead...I think I'll just have to lock myself into the bathroom and take matters into my own hands. For tips on how to prettily pamper your piggies head over to Real Simple.
When in doubt, and when feeling a bit blue, or challenged by some snippy comment from some not so well meaning family member... SMILE. Studies show that there are definite health benefits to smiling, and did you know that if you hold your smile long enough (a few minutes) it actually works towards making you feel happier? No joke jake.
Personally...I like the following saying about smiling and I smile just remembering it...
Perhaps when we all have time to do so we can start a Smile Pillow Crusade. I know we all have someone in our lives suffering from depression - perhaps even ourselves. It is time to acknowledge, embrace, and stand strong for those with depression and let them know they are not alone. Think about making a smile pillow for someone you love...hey, in the very least they can take their aggression out on it when they have the impetus to hit something! [I know I would. ;)]
