I couldn't maneuver around my big belly to get down there, or move my legs up to get to them. Neither one of my legs was going to move like that and the arthritis in my right hip made that one all the worse.
So, I told myself I was giving myself a treat even though I knew deep in my heart the real reason why I kept getting regular pedicures. I had to.
Now, I still get pedicures because I do love the indulgence. But now they are just that. Special times for me alone, or with a special friend or family member. Because now I can, and do, just did, cut my own toenails!
