Showering Feels Like a Chore
Last night after a long day of child care, housework, toilet scrubbing, errand running, kitchen cleaning, and dishwasher emptying I realized too much time had passed since my last shower.
So at 9:30 I climb into the shower to begin the bathing ritual. It doesn't take long for my brain to make the connection and I realize as I'm lathering up my hair that this too seems like a chore. I couldn't believe the list of things I had to get through to call my shower complete...
Shampoo Hair: Lather & Rinse
Condition Hair: Lather & Rinse
Shave Armpits: Soap Up & Shave
Shave Bikini Line: Soap Up & Shave
Pumice Heels: This is not easy, I don't know how my feet get this way!
Wash Entire Body
Scrub Face: and think about why your skin looks like a 15 year olds when you are midway through your 30's.
Wrap Up Hair
Lotion Entire Body
Apply Hair Product
I don't know about you but Showering has become more about Maintenance then relaxation. Maintenance seems like the best description too since all of those "chores" are supposed to help us look younger, fresher, firmer!
Getting old sucks and now even my shower makes me tired. Oh, and I FORGOT to shave my legs.
