I never seem to have enough time to do everything I want to do- and I'm not just referring to projects, work, spending time with the kids, cleaning, reading- I also include in this self-maintenance. For this reason, as I was coloring with my daughter recently, my self portrait (with crayons) was follows:
Hair always askew, no makeup, no self primping or pampering. I often look at other women with wonder, how they seem to be capable of doing everything. Kudos to them!
I, however, am not. I'm the green monster behind the knitting needles. And, for now, I'm really ok with that.
