First off, thanks for all of your well wishes.
I’m doing OK. Just still trying to get used to having a catheter in my bladder 24/7. I think that makes it harder than anything else.
Because let me tell you, that joker is UNCOMFORTABLE.
I know this is Mamavation/Cut the Fluff Monday, but nothing new is going on in that area. I’ve had to go on hiatus until I am fully healed.
But I’ve got PLANS for when I do!
My sister-in-law were talking yesterday and she said she felt like she needed to upgrade.
Immediately, I understood EXACTLY what she was talking about.
Now that I am venturing out again( to places other than the Doctor’s office, the grocery store and daycare), I feel like I need to get myself together. I caught a glimpse of myself the other day and realized that I looked……frumpy.
I’m 34. I shouldn’t be looking frumpy.
Ok, some of it is the fact that I have just had surgery, I have baby dreads and I am always sleep deprived, but still.
I have never looked frumpy in all of my life.
I need to get it together.
Soooo, I am embarking on a Total Me Makeover.
Mondays are now dedicated to this endeavor.
Because, I’ve got to get my sexy, groove and all that jazz back!
I need to get this body together:
- Get some new, stylish, in fashion clothes to go on it.
- Work this hair! because despite it being in the in between stage, it is cute.
- Start wearing makeup. Again. Experiment. Have fun. Play up my assets.:)
Get my house in order:
- I’ve got a cleaning service coming FINALLY on next Monday. They are doing a DEEP cleaning. All for a $150 of my hard earned money. And it will be worth EVERY PENNY.
I feel like sometimes when where you live is cluttered and disorganized, then so are you. So I am putting a stop to that and starting over. My mother being here is a godsend. She is seeing and suggesting things that I had forgotten or just hadn’t thought of. But my house is starting to look like it used to. I am pleased! And feel like I can breathe!
- My next step is to finally, after 5 years of living in the house, decorate.
Sad I know*hanging my head in shame*. But stuff kept happening(lay offs, pregnancies). But now, we can afford to buy furniture. I can afford to paint.
And last but not least, I am officially done with credit cards.
Forever and ever. I am keeping one for stuff like renting a car. But other than that, if we can’t buy it with cash, we don’t need it.
So I guess I’ve really just done new years resolutions all over again.
