Self-care in microcosm

I'm trying to learn, with my highly limited free time, to do nice things for myself and not panic that it involves spending money. I can't hoard every cent, even if I do have medical bills coming out my ears.

(I'm about to have some extremely expensive surgical procedures, and people like to think they're "elective" because they involve teeth. No. Not so much.)

So I don't have the energy to take pictures, because this headache is terrible, but this is just kind of a recognition that I got a gel manicure at a really wonderful place on 58th st. I still loathe my ugly, stubby fingers, and because I always break extensions I didn't bother getting them ... but I actually have a strong, long-lasting and luxuriously applied manicure on my ugly stubby fingers.

Which is making me tolerate them a little bit more, even if I'm also feeling as if the gorgeous polish highlights their ugly stubbiness.
