I decided that Stacy and Clinton would have a hay day of horrible secret video footage if they were anywhere near me. I never do anything with myself. My hair is pretty much always pulled back into a ponytail. I wear t-shirts everyday. My clothes are all awful! I have become the epitome of frumpy... Yesterday i was walking the kids to school. I had on a t-shirt and my capri length sweat type pants. I looked horrible! My hair was still down at that time of day, but it was pulled into a ponytail very soon afterwards. All day yesterday i felt awful about the way I looked. I went to a play group for the kids and still looked awful. Everyone looked all cute in their dressier clothes, still shorts and shirts, but so much dressier than mine!
But I decided yesterday morning that I was going to do more for me. Not the the neglect my children point. Just taking some time for myself everyday. I am going to get up a little earlier. I am going to shower first thing in the morning...everyday. I am going to do something with my hair...It may still be pulled back, but not in a ponytail everyday. Beyond that, I don't know what to do to take better care of me...I have been in such an emotional slump lately with everything going on that I just haven't cared...But i need to. Neglecting myself does nothing for my kids. So I am resolving to take better care of me, so that I can take better care of my kids.
So here is my call for help...what are some of your best suggestions for taking better care of me? I have spent the last 7 years being just mom and I want to be more than just a frumpy mom...So shoot your ideas over and let me know what I can/should do...Oh and money is tight, so it has to be cheap! :)
