having your priorities totally screwed

Florida holds most of all I hold dear.

Many years I lived in Daytona Beach.  Then I resided with my family in Tampa for years.

Two very different areas.

Two very different experiences.

My parents live there. My best friend. My next best friend.

The person I could call on a Sunday night if I had a rotting corpse to get rid of.  And no wine.

You get the idea.

I miss Florida.

Part of me thinks if I had to have strokes, I would have been been better off in Florida.

But.

Manicure + toenails trimmed (not pedicured) + eyebrows waxed + 2 kid’s manicures = $30 dollars.

That’s $30.00.

American money.

Maybe Georgia isn’t ALL bad.

    When I lived in Los Angeles, acrylic nails PLUS a pedi was $18 in some places… AND you got a leg massage with it! I’m sure it was because there’s a nail place on every corner. Now that I’m back in Florida, it is expensive and a luxury that is out of reach… figures now that I’m wearing flip flops every single day. ;)

    Wait, what? I am totally jealous and want to move right now. Of course if I moved to the US I couldn’t work and wouldn’t be able to afford the crazy cheap pamper so I’ll sit here in frozen envy.

    Florida misses you too! I am so amazed to see the progress you are making, and I want the whole Mayhew family that Juliette and I are thinking of them. Each Chick fil a Tuesday, I miss you all.

    Geez, I can barely get a pedicure for $25 here on the (redneck) eastern half of Washington State!

    Wow, I want a salon like that near my house. The Raleigh/Cary area just isn’t that cheap.

    You’re right, that’s quite a bargain. Got my first pedicure here in Austin. Sadly said goodbye to the excellent and cheap pedi I got in North Carolina.
