Sometimers

A few days ago I looked down and realized that my toes needed a pedicure right away. But as much as I do enjoy a salon pedicure in the hot summer months, I can't get them too frequently. Why, you ask? Well because they make my feet....wait for it.....wait for it....too soft. Yes, you read that correctly. Too soft. Which is lovely. But soft and smooth like a foot that has lived inside of a sock and winter boot for six months. That requires time to, I guess, sort of toughen up to handle wearing open-toed shoes. Tell me I am not alone here, friends. You do know what I am talking about, right? Or not. Whatever, I guess I have foot issues or something. Anyway, because I don't want my feet to look to purty and be too soft, I paint my own toes in between salon visits. No biggie. Except I have this one particular problem. Every. Single. Time. I can never find my polish remover. Which is odd because I am pretty specific about keeping stuff organized and put away. Especially polish remover as it could spill and ruin furniture. So for several days I looked and looked and looked. Searched high and low. I mean, my house is not that big and I also know that I own at least three bottles of the stuff from past experiences. And just like every other time, I finally gave in and just bought yet another bottle to get the job done. So I sit down on my floor (the same place I ALWAYS sit to do my toes) and low and behold, what do I see? Yep, not one but TWO bottles of nail polish remover. Sitting on the bottom shelf, right where I left it the last two times apparently. They are all safely tucked away now in a bathroom cabinet. Until I again develop Some-timers and lose them. Oh yes, I am totally that girl who has turned the house upside down while looking for my glasses. That are on my damn head. Like not on my head as a headband (though I have been there many times too) but on my head and I was LOOKING THROUGH THEM! This probably does not bode well for me in the future, huh?!

I'm constantly searching my purse for my cell only to realize that its in my hand! Happens to the best of us!

You're me! I spent 2 days looking for my manicure bag that has all my remover and clear ploish and tools in it...I keep the color out for touch-ups. I had to go and buy all new stuff...BUT I still haven't found the original bag yet...maybe I should get down and look on the bottom shelves!

You're not alone! I have to not get professional pedicures too often or they remove the caluses I need and I get blisters. I have the tendency to end up with either 5 things of lip balm in my purse or zero. Never just one.

I feel ya on this one. If my feet are too soft I get blisters like crazy. I have to make sure my calluses (gross, I know) stay put in order to avoid future pain!

my feet actually get too soft if I use 'Toe The Line' from Bath and Body Works everyday. It's fantastic stuff but it actually works a little to well. And then my feet are always hurty afterwards. For the blister sufferers, if you put a little vasoline on your foot where the shoes will likely rub, it should help keep you from getting blisters :-)

I almost called my mom last night (via my cell) as I was leaving work to tell her that I couldn't find my cell phone! It was a long day, but it's a common occurrence.

I'm always missing nail polish remover. I always find it in my sisters room she does not share my love of organisation I'm sad to say.

Oh I'm jealous... I could get a pedi once a week and still not have soft enough feet. I totally have dancer's feet and can never get them super soft. Sounds like we need a mix of your foot and mine. Hehe :-)

My feet are like Buford Betty's. I could probably get a pedicure weekly and still not have soft feet.

You are not alone! I run a lot, so pedicures are a great indulgence because my feet have to be pretty rough to not get blisters.
