I went and got a glittery manicure because a little bling makes me smile. Especially in January. When you are a girl in my house you get certain privileges that are yours and yours alone. Such as:
nobody eats dinner until I am seated and my plate is ready
I get some "private" time when all the guys are playing video games
a girls' night out every now and then
my own wardrobe that never is shared with anyone else
a husband who encourages me to go out and get a manicure, go to a matinee, or do what I want to relax
I know these things are not only offered to women who have no daughters at home, but I tell myself that they are sometimes. You know, on my way to the mall.
