Writer's Workshop: Behind the Blog

Here I am in all my non hair brushed, non hair washed, non bathed, non made up with make up and in my jammies glories. This is me every morning. I don't really have a daily beauty routine. I am anti-makeup. I hate the stuff, I only wear it on special a wedding. Make up takes too much time and to be honest it's been YEARS since I have worn it regularly. I just simply do not like it. Make up = blechy.

As far as my hair, I am hating it right now so I basically keep it in a pony tail, pulled back. I wash it every other day (If I am lucky) and I sometimes just don't want to brush it because it's thick, curly and annoying. I am really wanting to chop it off. I wear it curly about 95% of the time...I hate taking the time to straighten it, though I prefer it that way. But again, it plays back into the being thick and curly...straightening it with it like that is a nightmare and after doing like 5 minutes of it, I am sick of it. If I do straighten it, it takes me at least an hour...if not more. I am planning on getting it all chopped off and wearing it short, hopefully in a bob, if that works ok with my hair type. I would straighten it more and do more with it if I had less of it on my head. (That's another post of another day!).

As far as bathing...yah, I am lucky if I get to bathe. Don't get me wrong, it's not like I am gross and smell....I just don't bathe often and when I do - its like 5 minutes while Parker lays in the bedroom and plays. If I never had to bathe, I would be fine with that. I hate the whole process of it. I hate shaving - I. HATE. SHAVING. I hate being in my birthday suit. I am a very modest person and even though it's just bathing and that's why I am naked, I still hate it. I hate being wet, I hate being wet and cold, I hate that most towels don't fit all the way around me. Meh, it all is just, meh. I do attempt to bathe every other day, even if for just 5 minutes, sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't.

I basically am always in pjs or sweats most days. I have a child with bad reflux, so about 9 times out of 10 I am wearing most of what he's eaten. (He has this impeccable timing of puking when mommy picks him up when he cries!) So that's why I am almost always in pjs or sweats, that and they are super comfy. When I go out, I at least try to throw on jeans, but I also mostly wear tshirts or sweatshirts out.

So what do you think of me now???? I have an "ugly" side - or well a normal side. This is what I look like when I sit here and write my posts. No glamour, no hotness, just me, in all my comfy, non bathed, non hair brushed/washed, jammie wearing glory!!!!

Your Turn:

Choose a prompt, write your little blurb and go back to MamaKat's site and share with the rest of us on Mr. Linky:

The Prompts:

1.) If you were starring on American Idol TONIGHT and HAD to sing, what song would you choose and why.

2.) Take a picture of yourself right this minute without primping and explain to us why it is you have not washed your hair today.
3.) I just asked Pat to help me with a writing prompt so here's his: "What do you think about the NBA All Star game"...blech.

4.) What's your number one pet peeve? Develop a punishment for anyone caught in the act.

5.) Write about something mean you did to a sibling growing up.

And in case you didn't get to, please read my post from yesterday, its something VERY near and dear to my heart and I would love your help!!!

I think sweats are comfy! And I try to buy cute pjs so that I can get away with wearing them for longer, maybe even to wal-mart!

Try beach towels. They cover you up nicely when you are done with a shower or bath.

I'm curios, I would think you could find a cute, short hair do. That would sure save a lot of time and energy for you!

Taking care of an infant is a LOT of work!

Tee hee- I love this post- so fun & honest! :)

I have super oily hair & skin so I HAVE to take a shower every day... when Z was Parker's age, I put him in his infant seat in the bathroom while I took a shower.

And, be encouraged, Z used to puke a TON, too...but around 10 mos. or so it stopped & now at 14 mos he's pretty much weaned off his meds! :)

No mom or dad outfit is complete without the golden shoulder bars of rank. I marked the milestones well-shirts without the shoulder bars of upchuck, the day i no longer had to carry a diaper bag everywhere, ...

But you know, you'll miss it years later (not enough to do it again, but ...)
