Spring Cleaning

It's that time again...Spring is in the air....the days are getting longer, no need for the flannels, the birds are chirping, flowers blooming.

Time to get serious and bring out the heavy artillery, the industrial-strength cleaners.  Weed-wackers, START YOUR ENGINES! 

It's going to take skill, patience, persistence and determination of steel...even a little muscle.

Oh, I'm not talking about my house or garden.  (Although they do need work)  No, I'm talking about...

...ME!

During my first pregnancy I asked all my mommy friends (or any pregnant woman passing) to give me the low-down, the nitty-gritty, all the gory details of both the birthing experience and motherhood.  I learned about possible tearing and hemorrhoids, engorged boobies and the like.  So how come no one told me that it would take super-human strength to take a shower?  Okay, so I exaggerate a little.  But I used to shower EVERY DAY!  I guess I could work harder at making this happen, but frankly there are days that it just seems like more work and I have enough to do (including now writing this blog). 

Now you're probably thinking..."Ewww", but I do the basics.  I don't stink.  It's the maintenance...it's the "weed-wacking", the fine-tuning. 

So I went in the bathroom, locked the door...and took some "me" time. 

Kind of hard to look sexy with this on your face.



First painted toes of the year.


When's the last time you took a little "me" time?

oh! you look kinda sexy here...It is true , we often forget to look after ourselves and then we get depressed and think that we are so ugly...it just takes a readjustment of priorities doesn't it?
