Taking Care of Yourself (Imperfect Homemaking Challenge)
Time is my biggest enemy when it comes to taking care of my appearance.
I really don't enjoy feeling frumpy, but I'll be honest, there are many, many days when I don't even get to shower. Believe me, I try, but with 4 small children at home, I can pretty much forget it unless I get up early or stay up late. It's sad.
My toenails are often undone and sometimes I forget to shave my legs because if I do dare to take a shower during the day I am inevitably interrupted by some minor emergency.
But I really don't enjoy feeling ugly either. Feeling pretty and feminine actually helps me be a better homemaker because it puts me in a better mood.
So what's a girl to do?
There's only one answer to that – make time. It's worth it to stay up a little later to do my toenails if it will help me be more cheerful the next day. It's worth it to stay up a little later if it means I'll get 2 legs shaved instead of only one.
It's worth it to invest in myself so that I can better invest in my family.
Today's Challenge: Take some time to take care of yourself today. (Even if it's just shaving the other leg!)
You'll feel better about yourself and be a more cheerful homemaker!
