Investing in Me

I've been feeling less than confident about my appearance lately, and it's time to do something about it. I'm getting work done.

I'm going to have these separated stomach muscles repaired.

My insurance company may cover it, if the separation is bad enough that it might lead to back trouble in the future. If insurance doesn't cover it, I want to get the procedure done now, before we move into the new house and I have a higher monthly mortgage payment to deal with.

While the surgeon is in there, I think it makes sense to have a little lipo and fix this sagging tummy skin. I'm also considering boosting the girls a couple of cup sizes. Do you think it's a problem that I'm still nursing?

Also, my teeth need whitening and I want to have the sun damage on my face laser corrected.

I realize that most of this won't be covered by insurance, but I can use the money from the kids' college funds. Those investments have taken such a beating lately - there's not enough to actually send the kids to college - so I might as well use that money for me.

Because I'm worth it.

You didn't get me this year, once you started talking about plastic surgery I knew it was a joke.

(Can't remember what you wrote last year but I totally fell for it).

seems the recession stole my gullibility. Nobody's been getting me today. I even noticed the rubberbanded sleeves of my jacket before I tried to put it on to go home tonight.
To be honest, your anniversary isn't as much fun this way.
Hope you're having a good one.

and if the kids diss you about it, there's always that book I've heard about - the one written by a cosmetic surgeon to explain to kids why their mum's face is suddenly 4 inches further up their forehead than before. I wish I could remember what that book is called...
