I *might* be spoiled!

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

As I was in the shower today, testing the first iteration of body wash (tons of bubbles, awesome scent, viscosity too thin) and I realized that I didn’t have any sugar scrub in the shower.

What? Unbelievable! I had salt scrub (which I just don’t like), I had bubbly scrubby bars that I DO like, but was not what I wanted at that particular moment, I had a different scrubby bar that doesn’t foam or bubble, but that’s not what I wanted. I wanted some SUGAR SCRUB, dammit~!!! Lol

Which started me thinking that maybe – just MAAAAYYYYBE… - I might be a little spoiled!





Not me!

(well, maybe just a little bit…)

And then – I posted a memory on Facebook last week. In the original post, I had said that – ‘I’m not spoiled but look what my husband did to surprise me’ – to which everyone replied, “well, you ARE spoiled, but you deserve it!”

Which got me to thinking (again)…

Okay, so I’m spoiled (but I deserve it?).

Does that make me a bad person?

Does that make me a diva?

Because I don’t think I’m a bad person, nor do I think I’m a diva.

So, then, what does that mean?

I believe that to be spoiled – or to spoil someone – means that person is deeply loved.

I spoil my cat by making sure she’s fed and has fresh water and treats because I love her!

I spoil my husband as much as he will let me because I love him! Deeply!

Ernie’s project from 2015 – a new backsplash! It looks great!

So? I’m spoiled! I’m not a brat or a diva or mean. I’m just loved! Deeply! By many people who I spoil in return! Yay me for being so lucky!

And – it’s okay to be self-indulgent sometimes! I don’t buy fancy sports cars or diamond stuff for myself! I sometimes want that sugar scrub, however!


In today’s world, that’s called “self-care”. Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket!

And – that’s okay!

I think you *are* spoiled, lovingly spoiled. Not a bad thing and it is okay, as it is reciprocated. Have you gotten the sugar scrub? The struggle is real. I've got mine. Thank you! krn
