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!
