Tell me if I am bad

I stayed home sick from work today. Legitimately. yesterday afternoon I had a sore throat and had a night class that got out at 10 pm. During class I could feel myself getting sicker and sicker. I hardly slept and woke up feeling like shit still. I felt body aches and chills, but no fever.

Well i took a nap earlier and I ate some breakfast and I am feeling better. I want to go get a mani pedi. I never do things like that for myself. Would it be bad if i did that? I would tell my coworkers that I did my own nails, which I normally do. I never can go get my nails done because I always have my son. I plan to go to work tomorrow.

You sound like you are guilty for skipping work.  I've felt like crap before, too, left work and went home.  The next day I felt better and wanted to some things done for myself.  Get that pedi done.  Get it done for you.  Do something nice for yourself.

You were sick and now feel better. I don't see an issue with taking some for yourself too

I agree with the others.  Do something nice for yourself (and it'll help contribute toward your feeling better as well) and don't feel guilty about it.

i didn't wind up going. But I did go to the beauty supply and got new shampoo and conditioner, manicure tools, a new nail polish, face wash and a masque. Then I did my own nails lol. I needed to spend the money mostly on the shampoo and wash that I was out of.
