Musings From A Musical Mind

Getting Cute

It finally happened.  I looked in the mirror and saw…my……….Okay someone REALLY OLD.  Since my own mother and grandmother NEVER looked their age – I can’t even use that as an example.    I have these HUGE bags under my eyes this morning – and was reminded of the line from one of the episodes of Star Trek Next Generation – “I see time has NOT been kind, Jameson.”  It’s a joke around our house whenever someone looks pretty worn out and haggard.  Well this morning it’s ME!!!!  I didn’t even recognize the reflection – and I got more sleep last night than I have in the last 3!!  It doesn’t make any sense at all – but the good news is this:  My HAIR LOOKS GREAT!!! ♥

Men are sooooooooo lucky.  They always look great.  My dear husband was pretty wiped out yesterday – we had a theater practice where he is the narrator for the production – and STILL – he looks great!  How do they do it?  Not a smidge of makeup on – and they still mange to look “fresh” and “put together”  It’s not fair.  Men just walk out of the shower looking great!  That NEVER happens to women.  Oh yes – we have our good days – no bags under our eyes – and that perfect hair day – but it’s NEVER like a man.

You think we’re cute?  It takes longer and longer each year to GET CUTE!!  And that’s the truth.

Greg will say to me on some mornings – can we go in about 20 minutes?  Knowing I haven’t even been in the shower yet.  And I smile and say, “sure”.  That 20 minutes later I’m still just blow drying my hair – haven’t put a smidge of anything on my face yet.  It takes WORK to be cute.  Mineral makeup foundation – a little blush – eyebrow pencil – eye shadow, liner and mascara.  And that’s only to look normal. I have never been one to wear much makeup – I don’t over do it at all – in fact – some guys don’t even think that I wear any – sometimes.  That’s the POINT!!  You shouldn’t look like you wear any.  It’s supposed to just make you look normal. And I don’t wish to frighten anyone – especially men and children.  I work with Junior High kids – do you think I want them to point and stare at the “scary lady”?  No.  So I usually need about 15 more minutes.  It’s okay – he’s used to it ♥

I think today I will have to work a little longer – to get “cute” and get going on this busy day!  After all – Greg looks SO good all the time – I really must keep up with him!

He just got home – and Wow – he looks GREAT!  But you know what?  He thinks I do too – just as I am – not a smidge of makeup – just me.  And that feels pretty great ♥

Have an awesome day!

God Bless

    Yeah, I’ve noticed that too that guys always look good, no matter the time of day, no matter how tired they are.
    But thankfully they also have a bit of a “blind spot” where we women are concerned. In their eyes we always look great. 🙂

  2. Hi Cindy. Thx for stopping by my blog to wish me a HB. I do appreciate it very much. Have a great day.

  3. Kelly hates messing with hair and make-up. Still, she keeps at it. She always looks great and I appreciate the time and effort. Especially as I grow older, I appreciate having my gal looking younger than me rather than older than me. Of course, the slow loss of our eyesight will improve this with age.

    • Greg appreciates it too – you guys are the greatest! People always say how young we look so I’m thinking my efforts must be worth it :). However, if you’re going by the old, “you’re only as old as you feel” then today – because I tweaked my lower back – would be about….90!!!!

  4. I always comb my hair in a pony tail and then “bun” it. ….or I comb it back and braid it. I don’t like to dilly dally with the hair I have left. lol!! I wear very little makeup too. Sometimes none and hey, we get by. I’m sure you look fine with how you are. Wash your face tomorrow morning and l ook in the mirror and say, “Hey girl!! You look great.” Take care.

  5. Oh it takes me 45min to an hour to blow dry my hair so it looks cute. Then in about 30 minutes it’s not cute anymore. It’s just too much work to be cute.

    • The “Men” just don’t appreciate all we do to look “Cute” – it’s an exercise, isn’t it? But still we labor on and on – to try to get it right. I hope some day they will appreciate it!

    I agree with Greg! Although Barb disagrees with me, she will always be beautiful to me!
