Kyndal was inspired from an episode of Max and Ruby to provide me with some organic spa treatments last night. She got on the internet and found a grape mask and sugar exfoliating scrub. This is the mask. She had to improvise on the ingredients (white flour instead of almond flour, etc.), but it seemed to do the trick. She made me a pallet upstairs and played the music from my blog. I would like to say it was totally relaxing, but she kept dropping big globs on my face and some would run down my neck. And Brynne was running around naked. It was really funny! We laughed a lot! Afterwards she had me do a foot soak and then gave me a foot massage. MMMMmmmm that felt nice! But it was what she said that meant the most ... As I said yesterday, I wasn't feeling good. I had a really bad headache and a bladder infection and just felt bad. But she told me that 'I deserved the spa treatment.' She said, "You had a really bad headache today, but you did all of our laundry. And, you have a bladder infection, but you cleaned the bathrooms." It was just nice to hear a, typically, self-involved 13 year old acknowledge that I do a lot, even when I really don't feel like it. It was a really nice treat, all the way around. Thank you, Kyndal!
