Nail Biter No More

For as long as I can remember, I've been a nail biter. Bad, bad habit. Years ago I wore acrylic nail tips, but I'd bite those off or pick them off or both. And they really did nothing except weaken my nails even worse than nail biting alone.

I get a manicure every couple of weeks. In between manicures, though, I'd probably pick the polish off and repaint my nails at least six times. My nails were so soft and weak.

Not anymore! Have you tried the new shellac polish?

It is an absolute miracle! Your manicure will last a FULL TWO WEEKS, without so much as a chip in your polish. Your nails stay shiny too! I LOVE IT!!! It takes a little longer to get the shellac manicure, and it cost a little more, but it is so worth it. Especially if you're a nail biter like me.

My weekend was not the best. I had a very bad migraine headache that ruined my day on Saturday. Then on Sunday I was so wrung out and nauseated from the headache medications that I missed my cousins' graduation party. My mom and dad and Suz and her family came over late afternoon to swim. I was trying to lift myself onto the tailgate of Cam's truck to sit and watch the kids hit a few golf balls and my hand slipped, and as my dad would say, down I went. Face down in the dirt. My arm hit the corner of his tailgate and I've got a couple of scratches and bruises. I was really, really lucky I didn't break my arm or my shoulder. I sure have been sore.

Yesterday, we were invited to a low country boil. I still wasn't feeling all that great, but we did go. It was outside under the most beautiful, huge shade tree. After about 30 minutes, I was sizzling hot and miserable. Really miserable. By the time we left, my head had started hurting again and I went to bed praying to wake up this morning without a headache. It was gone when I woke up. Not sure what's going on with the ol' head, but I seem to be going from one minor health problem to another. Very frustrating.

Back to the gym tonight. We worked out only once last week, so I'm ready to go. Maybe. As long as my head doesn't hurt. Or my arm. Or my ankle. Or my stomach. Or my wrist.

Till next time...

i hate blogger so much. I left a big long comment and it didn't post. Why can't they fix this stuff? Anyway, you didn't mention your BFF coming to your rescue. JK. I know you are sore, it looked very painful. Truth is you may need to let your body rest a bit. You've had a lot going on.
Love you and if it doesn't post this time, I will call you and tell you this instead!!!!

When it rains, it pours! Hopefully that is it for the feeling bad:( I have been having my nails done for a year and decided to let them rest! I have been painting them myself and it is kinda nice! They don't look as good as they did while I was going to the nail salon but they look OK!

Hope you feel better, I hate to fall, I don't like to trip and I don't like to get skinned up! Love you bunches, Auntie T!

That's not good! Do you need to see a doctor? Or do you think it could be from how busy your life has been and your body is saying "Give me a break?" I will pray for you to feel better! And that this week will be good for you!!!! xoxo


Thanks for the nail idea. I was a biter for years...have just gotten nails...I have one thumb I can't seem to grow. I am sorry about your headaches. I hope you get rid of them soon.
