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. :)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Kaycee, and you have five lives right under your roof that think you're an attractive, intelligent and fun person just the way you are. And there's a couple of groups of your friends that think of you the same way. When it comes right down to it, we make ourselves look good for total strangers - because the ones we know and love already know how beautiful we are, inside and out.

Of course, in my case, people merely put up with me until I finally leave. If I can't provide people with anything else, at least I can provide them with a sense of relief at my departure... ;-)

CD's comin' this week!!!
