I'd vlog but, I'm wearing the same outfit I wore last week.
v/blog is my diversion from gnawing the handle off of my fridge from stress hunger.
Is there such a thing as 'Stress Hunger'?
There is now.
So, I popped two pieces of teeth whitening gum in my mouth; for three reasons:
A. any more than three I get flatulence that would get me an eviction from our house. Being that gender that dominates my home is male and the majority of them still think that farting is funny that says a lot.
B. it's whitening my teeth which is good because I'm a ridiculously red redhead now and I just had to try red lipstick and my teeth have to be white to pull of that look. They just hafta.
C...the third reason...
I'm avoiding the popcorn, the cookies and that stale fruity snack that is soliciting my attention from under the sofa. I think it needs me...being abandoned like that has to suck...
Things I am stressed over:
1. I'm a redhead.
The process went something like this, "I'm bored with the fake tan, blond hair, blue-eyed thing...anybody can pull off that look with a little aid from plastic and paint...Shakira did. I need a challenge...let's bring red back like Linda Evangelista in the 90's...Just. let's."
I remind myself of Lucille Ball; granted it suits my personality better, but, I've shocked even myself this time.
2. Vacation is in 6 hours and my daughter all-of-a-sudden thinks the life as we know it will 'cease to exist' if she is raven haired when she crosses the border.
She totally gets this from her father.
3. I miss my kids. I went from stay-at-home for 15 years to working mom with five at home and it has me drowning in separation anxiety. I'm done with getting my honey's perspective on the pressures of bills and missing out on family. At the same time, taking up work so he could be home and enjoy his family some has been the best thing for our family bond. Time feels precious and we appreciate each other sooooo much more.
again, at the same, same, time...I am going to enjoy this weekend get-away immensely.
Now, I gotta pack. Tomorrow is almost here...not just for vacation which I've worked so hard for but also my healthy lifestyle goals...chew gum like it's dawning on the Day of Awesome.
