The Inconvenience Of Being A Lady

Hey team, Hilary here. It's currently 10:30pm and I am writing my post for the day. Today was really really really challenging with Geddy. This weekend, he started teething again and every time molars start coming in, he gets these awful fevers. Today, the fevers were gone but the "sassitude" (sassy attitude) was in full force. I had never seen him so grumpy. I was having flash forwards of the terrible twos and it was not pretty folks.

After getting Geddy down to bed, I went to the gym (my iPod broke so I had to watch weird gym TV, it was a miracle that I was even there) and then finally showered for the first time today. That's right, it was about 9:30pm. Before I got in the shower I realized how behind I was on my beautifying regimen. And my regimen is the SIMPLEST but I was way behind. Being a lady is kind of tough. I hate to say that because being a gentlemen is not any easier but there are basic things that you just have to do to upkeep one's appearance (even when your keeping it mega simple, like me).

There were eyebrows that needed tweezing, legs and pits that needed shavings, and chipped nail polish that needed removing. It was pretty bad. Like, I really shouldn't be wearing shorts with these hairy legs, type of thing (but I totally did, just so you know). So, I buckled down and put on a deep cleansing face mask and removed my nail polish, then plucked my eyebrows, jumped in the shower and did some shaving. And then I had to use lotion which I hate. Does anyone else hate lotion? I think it's the worst.

I get it girlfriend, lotion sucks.

After I got out, all I could do was sit down on the couch. I still have 2 baskets of laundry that needs folding but I just can't do it, not tonight.

Now that I am cleaned and in some ways "pampered" I think about how much of my night is gone. It takes so much time to just appear acceptable. Haha, I feel so tired and lazy. And I feel sleepy and ready to start fresh tomorrow. I hope that little dude has the same outlook tomorrow morning.

Happy Monday!

Amen to that. That's why deep down I want to pull and Emma Watson and just hack off my hair. Maybe then, and only then, I'd have a true wash and wear hairstyle.
