I’m not going to lie: when I found out I would get to experience a spa day at Thair Salon & Spa, I teared up a little. Being a full-time work-at-home mom with two young kids and a teen means that self-care is generally at the very bottom of the totem pole of priorities. I split most work days into two segments: the school/daycare shift of about 5 hours, and the nighttime, post-bedtime shift of another 2-3 hours. When the kids are home and awake, I try to be present, or at least be making some kind of meal for them, so it kind of feels non-stop these days. So yeah, a spa day that was scheduled in and part of my job? Sign me up on the dotted line, please.
