I can't remember exactly what it was, but it was something along the line of "I don't know how you do everything you do and still look so put together".
I told her that Jason had said earlier that day, "Hey! You're wearing make-up!"
Because, um. I don't every day. In fact, I snapped this picture of myself shortly after the conversation my cousin and I had because I just felt like it was appropriate.
I was cleaning my bathroom. As you can clearly see, the countertop was a hot mess. Much like the owner of the countertop.
Apparently I'm good at hiding what a hot mess I am, but I promise...this is about what I look like on a normal day. I work from home, which means things like today I was wearing pajama pants until 4:30pm. Last night, Jason was trying to reprimand the teenagers about something and the dog farted and I couldn't stop laughing and he got very upset with me because I wasn't taking the conversation very seriously (I can't help it, every time she farts it scares her and it's hilarious. I don't care who you are). My dining room is currently awash in LuLaRoe. The bags under my eyes would need to be checked if I got on an airplane right now.
Life is hard, y'all. It's hard for all of us. I posted on Facebook the other day about being done with my Christmas shopping and I got some "show off" comments. The truth is, the next month is insane for me and shopping throughout the year when things are on sale is the only way I can get through emotionally and financially. I was happy about it, but didn't do it for praise. It's just me. It's cool if it's not you. I bet you do many things in way more awesome ways than I do. You can probably even do math in your head, which is pretty sweet.
Sometimes I see the family pictures on Facebook and I think, "Wow, they really have it all together!" Maybe they do. Everyone looks just so. Everything looks perfect.
If I had to guess though, at least one countertop in their house looks like mine did on Saturday night.
