The wet look

I haven't posted anything in a long time. I know I keep saying that I have to post more, but who am I kidding? I'm lucky these days if I find time to wash my hair.

I really do wash it daily, that was just for the sake of the analogy. Although, I think there might have been a day last weekend where I didn't wash it. It wasn't looking so good by the end of the day.

Sometimes, when I'm getting showered/dressed/"ready", I think how much more I could get accomplished if I didn't do all that. It's such drudgery – all the showering, shampooing, shaving, lathering, washing. Not to mention everything that comes after - the hair, putting on makeup, trying to decide what to wear, etc. Honestly, it's only an hour, but still... Truthfully, it would take me less than an hour if I would just get busy and do what needs done. But, because I dread the process so much, I usually check my email, play with the pets, talk to my sister on the phone, etc. in the middle of all the "getting ready". It breaks up the senseless monotony and makes the whole process a little more bearable, even if it does drag it out somewhat.

I have to drag myself to the shower in the morning because all I really want to be doing early is drinking coffee and trying to take the next couple of hours to really wake up. I am not a morning person, and when you add the drudgery of "getting ready" to an already unpleasant part of the day, it just makes it that much more of a chore.

So, if you see me with my hair pulled back, you know it's because I didn't feel like doing the whole "hairstyle" thing. It means that when I got out of the shower, I either went back to bed for a spell and didn't have time to do anything with it, or I just didn't feel like it. I had my hair pulled back today :)

I know this is a stupid thing to whine about, but these are the scraps you get when I don't have much of substance to say. I'll try to do better next time.

See you in a few months!
