Ped Egg--Does It Work?

I have really gotten into getting manis and pedis, but can only afford them once a month, if that. So I have been dying to get a Ped Egg to pamper my feet in between salon visits. On a recent trip to Wal-Mart (yes, I have to admit I occasionally shop at Wal-Mart) I put a Ped Egg in my cart. I couldn't wait to get home to try it.

Long story short--I am not sure it works. Well, it works, but I am not sure it works well. The blades on the egg are a little smaller than I thought. Sort of like a little cheese grater. I have been rubbing it on the bottoms of my feet, and some sand-like substance is coming off. But has it made my feet smoother? Not particularly. I have always had somewhat hard heels, even as a child, so maybe something about my makeup makes the egg work less well. I'll keep trying here and there. But it is not the quick fix I hoped it would be.

Coming Awake After A Long Winter's Nap

Yes, I graduated from law school a year ago, and I found out I passed the bar exam about a month and a half ago. I was sworn in in front of the state's supreme court last week, so I am legal. I am done with studying, at least that kind of studying for a while. Now I am back to my real life. So far that has consisted of cleaning out my closets for the first time in at least 6 years, and taking big garbage sacks of clothes to Goodwill. It also means trying to get my condo back in shape. Do a little freelance work. Blogging more. And getting back in shape. I took my dog Stoopot for a longer walk than usual last night. I need the exercise and so does he, so I want to do this almost every night. I need to get back in shape, both for my health and my dating life. I look so much better with the pounds off.
