Blogging is weird.
It gives you an incomplete picture of people, especially if you aren’t a regular reader or don’t know the person in real life.
If you stopped by my blog for the first time the past few months you might think all I do is drink margaritas poolside in Cabo, pass out on the toilet, or shop for jeans.
But you know what? I am a girl like you.
It’s a glamorous life. Yo.
I stress out about getting to work on time.
I want to pull my hair out when my girls fight.
My face breaks out.
I worry about silly things.
I rarely use coupons.
I suffer from mom guilt. (Did I breastfeed long enough, did I take her paci away too young, did I have to yell…AGAIN?)
I pay bills.
I sometime forget to take that plastic thingy off new deodorant and nearly cut my armpit (ouch.)
I pluck random and sundry hairs…ON MY CHIN. (But only two. ONLY two.)
I roll the garbage out to the curb.
I drive a 9-year-old car.
I make to do lists.
I walk the dog.
I have spider veins.
I get PMS.
I am a flake.
I am insecure.
I argue with my husband.
I am nearsighted.
I have bad hair days.
I don’t like my nose.
I forget to wear earrings and I feel “naked.”
I cry at Miranda Lambert’s “House That Built Me.”
I laugh at Talladega Nights.
I clean my own toilets.
I am a girl like you, ya’ll.
p.s. I QUOTE BARBIE MOVIE soundtracks…deal!
You really should rethink that “clean your own toilet” thing. Best stress reducer we ever did was have someone clean the house twice a week.
WTF is up with spider veins? Is it because I’m 33 or because I started exercising enthusiastically this year?
And yeah, truly, money spent on a cleaning service is money well spent (although we have someone come once every two weeks).
EG I don’t know…mine are primarily on my outer right thigh and I blame years of curling up that leg under my left leg when I sit. They are SO. ATTRACTIVE.
Or I should blame cleaning the $%&@ toilets!
Awesome!!! Right there with ya. People think because I plan events that I’m walking the damn red carpet. Nope… just the girl sweating like a goat from rolling OUT the carpet. Your list? I checked almost all of them myself. We’re awesome. Period.
It is a shame that everyday can’t be Cabo-tastic. But I’m sure more of us see bits of ourselves in your list than those who don’t.
That’s my girl…..
Yes, I make to do lists….as well. Than I loose them. I need a post it note as to where I put the to do list.
It is interesting to think of what non-personal readers think of you based on what you blog about. It sure is an incomplete picture.
Don’t have mom guilt, sounds like you love your kids a lot and look after them well! Louisa
LOL. I can totally relate to your list, especially the part with making lists and overthinking. We are all girls and we are strong.
