This post sort of ties in with yesterday's (does yesterday show ownership, hence using an apostrophe? I'm not sure? LOL) I talked about whether it was important or not to dress up to look cute just to stay at home. I came to the conclusion that yes, getting dressed, neatly fixing your hair, brushing your teeth and moisturizing your face and lips is important. After reading a lot of your comments, I also feel like it's a good thing to maybe dab on some lipstick or fluff up my hair before my man comes home. After all, he's had a hard day already, why should he have to come home to Brunhilde? I'll try these things in the days to come and let you know how it goes. My hubby had to work late tonight, so I've had some extra time to spruce up the house, making sure everything is neat. I sat out his favorite Chai tea to have ready when he gets home and I even turned on the hot tub and laid out some towels. Oh yes...I can be awesome when I want to be!
But there are more days than not, that I just cannot pull it together. I feel frumpy, sad, boring, and just not fun to be around. Sometimes I feel like I've completely lost is my saucy, fun, girlie side. I used to laugh...a lot. Just ask any of my girlfriends. I used to be the crazy one of the group who would do or say almost anything and was always acting silly.
My friend Kim, who I twirled with (I was a majorette) in high school recently said this on facebook, talking about this pic of my big hair! And I also included a pic of us girls at majorette camp.
And I think...God, where did that girl go? I liked her. She was so fun and warm. She enjoyed life. Where did she go?
This Angie doesn't feel much like laughing, kidding around or doing anything that makes her feel girlie or fun. I feel like a big ol' sad, slob. No where near cute. But really, I'm a big girlie-girl. I love perfume and make-up, like to curl my hair and paint my nails. This is also one of the things my husband loves about me.
So, I've decided to list a few things that make me feel good and smile. I'm going to take it slow and incorporate all of these things into my life eventually. But for now, I'm just going to pick a couple to try to work on doing to make me feel good. I need these little things to help me stay motivated so that doing the hard stuff won't seem so bad. In my weekly schedule, I've deemed Saturday night, "beautification" night, where I'll condition my hair or apply a mask, moisturize or paint my nails...whatever.
