I jumped into the shower when my husband got home from work the other night–and it was night because a sick little muffin wouldn’t let me detach myself from her all day–and went to wash my hair only to realize that I only had an empty bottle of conditioner to work with. Shower fail. My hair was in desperate need of detangling.

I stood under the warm water and thought for a second, realizing I couldn’t remember the last time I did something as luxurious as putting lotion on my legs after I shaved.

No wonder I’ve been feeling so cranky lately. This must change. I need:

candle, tea cup, milk honey bath, towels, tub caddy, book, robe

What do you reach for when you need a little me time?
