OK I will admit that I am so bad about not taking time to take care of me.
I am grreat at keeping track of Chris' 8 trillion Doctors appointments, when his refills are due or when he needs a change in meds. I can keep up with my 8 year old daughters play rehersals, art contests, homework, doctors appts. medications, refills and when she needs a change in her meds. I manage my Sons soccer practice, games, Optomitrist appts and bi monthly hearing tests. My little one well no one can keep up with her but I have kept her, so far, from killing anyone or herself and from destroying the house.
I can tell when Chris needs time away from the screaming monkeys and send him off to play guitar. I can detect the slightest signs of illness in all three kids and Chris before they realize it themselves. I can tell by looking at Chris if his blood sugar is high or low and can not only ready a shot of insulin in less than 40 seconds but I can slap together a PB&J in a minute flat, minus clean up.
But I am really bad at remembering that it's been over 6 months since I had a haircut,
or it's time for my check up, or oh geez I've only slept 9 hours in three days (happens way too often) and don't even ask about how many times I forget to eat a meal. As with many Mom's I forget all about me and that I can't take care of everyone else if I've lost my mind or am sick in bed...ok I'm never in bed sick or not but you get the idea. :oP
Well my dear, sweet husband reminded me the other day that I have had
any "Me" time in a very long time. So I emailed my girl Ange Marie and begged and whined for a haircut, OK I just asked nicely. So I have no sparklie nails to show you today because I took a bath in the morning (this never happenes, usually a 7 minute luke warm shower is about it) and threw my sad excuse for a mop in a pony, and played in my makeup. Then I went over to Ange's and we goofed off. She re colored my faded pink and cut my crazy hair into a fancy new do. Most of the time we just gabbed like women who rarely get to talk to grown ups in real life. But It was a nice all about me day.
Thank you a billion Ange for the awesome haircut and re pinking my pink.
(I'm not showing the new do, Ange did all the work so she get's to show off her handy work)
But If you are sick of me going on I'll show you my look for the day.
The standard disclaimers stand: Ignore the eyebrows they are hopeless and pretend that it looks like have had some sleep this month.
The run down:
ELF translucent matte powder
(I don't wear foundation, I'm too lazy)
Evil Shades Gift River on lids and up to just above the crease and lower lash line.
Evil Shades Double Barrel in the outer v and crease
Evil Shades Moonlit on brow bone and tear duct
(As usual the color washed out badly in the pictures and the sparklies hid)
Essence liquid liner black (Thank Sasha, I love this stuff)
Wet n Wild I can't remember the name but it's the new volumizing in black and holy love...$1.99 and this stuff is awesome, no clumps, no flakes, no need for my lash comb. I need more!
Evil Shades Bane (thin coat just to add moisture and a little flash of color)
See Phyrra I have been watching your tutorials and yes I managed to get both eyes somewhat symetrical. YAY!
And I leave you with a smile!
When was the last time you took time to take care of you? Be honest!
