I've developed a really nasty habit. One I have GOT to break. I realized today, I have started showering only once a week. And I am wearing the same clothes two and three days in a row. GROSS.
It is winter, so I'm not as active or sweaty, but really, this is so very very wrong. My children are 2 and 4 and my husband is home all the time right now. I have no reason to no shower. It's not even that I'm lazy. I just don't care. DOUBLE GROSS. I am going to fix this.
I am now scheduling my showers. I have a husband at home; I don't have to wake up early or wait until nap time. I am going to plan a shower into my day the way I would plan a shopping trip or a lunch with a friend. I guess if the shower is hot enough, it is like a lunch date. I'm thinking Saturday morning (so my hair is a day old when I style it for church on Sunday), Monday night, and Thursday while Johnny is at preschool. I am not allowed to plan outings, doctors appointments, or anything else during this time. I cannot become THAT mom. I will be clean and well groomed. I will look like a together mom, even though I am tired and frazzled and overdue for a break.
