Yesterday, the AECP students went on a field trip to the Grand Canyon. I could have gone with them, or I could have gone to the office to watch a telecast from the 2007 TESOL convention. Instead, I had a spa day with my sister, Natalie! Natalie is leaving the country in just a couple of weeks, so I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to spend some time with her. She has a friend who recently started a business giving facials and beauty treatments, so we made appointments for facials.
I’d never had a facial before. It was really, really nice! I always imagined that facials were pure skin-care ordeals, and I never thought of them as particularly relaxing. So I was surprised when I walked into the room and heard the soft, relaxing music. The aesthetician put some stuff on my face and massaged my shoulders and arms. It was a very pleasant way to spend an hour!
