Back to School!

I had my new tennis shoes, cute outfit and perfect hair all put together...

Okay, not really.

It's not the same as when I was in 9th grade and so excited about the first day of school. I didn't even wear makeup today!

Somehow becoming a mother automatically puts your priorities into order. My alarm didn't go off so in order to get Jaxon up and ready in time, I traded makeup for clean hair. I'm okay with that. Perhaps if I looked like an ogre, I would not have made that trade off but since I'm halfway okay with the way my makeup-less face looks... it was a good decision. Besides that, I sat in the front of the class so the teacher was the only person who could see my face. I would have been full of regret if I would have left the dirty hair in lieu of a made up face. I certainly don't want anyone to go home and talk about 'the girl with the disgusting hair' over dinner tonight.

Any way, thankfully that was the biggest decision I had to make today. I hate making decisions.

I hope everyone had an okay Wednesday! I go to Biology tomorrow afternoon. Wish me luck!

Yay, back to school, make-up or not. Good for you!
I have finally figured out that each day is just one day out of millions that we will live, who cares if we don't wear make-up or fix our hair perfect everyday, it just doesn't matter!
You are beautiful no matter what!

This cracked me up. Yes, we all have to make beauty trade-offs, and they are decisions. Funny thing is everyone is worried about their own beauty trade offs and never notice ours. I bet not one person would have noticed the dirty hair. Unless you have inherited Grandpa's oily hair like some of the other family members who won't be named and then, yes. Good call. JK

My girls have me using baby powder in my hair on days when i don't have time to wash it but it is a bit oily. the powder absorbs the oil and works like magic! :)

I admire you so much for going back to school!
