Looking in the mirror

Well, I am finally taking a few minutes for a new post. I'm sharing an experiment I'm trying. As a new mommy, I'm not necessarily happy with what I see in the mirror right now. My face if very full and I haven't had a hair cut for months. So, when I took a minute to read a suggestion on Oprah.com, it sounded like something worth trying. One writer there recommended taking a break from looking in the mirror to see how we feel at the end of the break. Hopefully, we will appreciate ourselves a bit more. So, I'm giving it a try. I'm not looking in a mirror until Saturday. So for the next 3 to 4 days, I'll post how it goes. Right now I'm thinking putting on mascara and fixing my hair are going to be a challenge. But, I'll either skip them, or try to do them without looking. I didn't put makeup on to take my Kindergartener to school today, and I didn't dry my hair yet, I simply pulled it back to make the drive to the school. So it begins. I am not committed to makeup everyday, but I do wear it MOST days. The hair thing is something else. I feel better when I think my hair looks decent. OK . . . I like it to look much better than decent. But then, I won't know WHAT it will look like. We'll see. :)
