Five Things I Miss

 They say when you settle down and have kids it means you are going to give up some or most of your pleasures. Well, for some, they still enjoy but in my case, since I am one-woman show and no nanny, I gave up everything. It’s not that I regret them but there are certain times that I get to miss the usual me-time I get enjoy and the feeling of being a queen even just for a day. Who doesn’t anyway? I miss those times when you feel so relaxed and worry free and just spending your day feeling like a queen.

Mom was right when she said I should enjoy being single. Well, mothers know best as they say. When the kids were born, I learned how to do DIYs. From foot spa to eyebrow and upper lip threading to underarm waxing. Mind you, it’s a hard thing to do but I learned to do it. The convenience it gives plus the guilt I feel splurging J’s money for my pleasure motivates me to do so.

Here are some of the things I miss:

  • Hand/foot spa. I was a loyal patron of Dashing Diva and Let’s Face It before. It was before Beauty and Butter was born and all other nail pampering salons out there. I get to have my nails done every week and the most two weeks. Yes, that’s how I enjoy my pampering sesh especially when boredom strikes me. Oh, the last time I had a decent hand and foot spa was two years ago. Crap!

  • Salon. Who wouldn’t love to pay a visit to salons? Every woman loves to feel good, great and beautiful always! Our hair is our crowning glory and we should take good care of it. Believe it or not the last time I visited a salon was three years ago when I decided to have a short hair. Now, I do my own hair treatment in my own comfort zone.

  • Facial Treatment. I don’t have breakouts but I usually get to have a facial treatment before. It feels so relaxing lying on the treatment table and somebody is massaging your face.

  • Movies. J and I used to watch movies in cinemas but we haven’t enjoyed it in a while for more than three years already. We only watch movies at home with our two rambunctious little monsters.

  • Shopping. Who doesn’t love shopping? Even if it’s window shopping it gives me unexplainable feeling of relief from stress. I also love hitting the malls when there is a magic word—SALE! Now the only shopping I don’t feel guilt spending J’s money is grocery shopping twice a month. 


May sound distressing but they say, when you are a mom you give up almost everything. But when they get older and I’m back to my usual grind, I wouldn’t mind to try new pampering salons there and feel like a queen. It may not be now, but in TIME.

How about you? What are the things you miss?
