This is what happens when you take on a monumental home reno !
1) You get old. Fast.
2) Your sleeping patterns are what morse code looks like ( a few dots here and there )
3) Your hands start looking like contractor's hands
4) Your feet? Fuggedaboudit
5) AND you miss 8 months of hairdresser appointments - 8 MONTHS - so that even if you usually sport
bangs ( which do miracles to hide the aging process - and of which I desperately need ) you are now walking around like this
NOTE : Sunglasses also help with the aging process - I have mine on all the time - I sleep with them on too.................John hasn't seen my eyes in 8 months.
You won't ever see a lot of photos of me on my blog - ever.
I think I've posted 4 posts with photos of me in them in the 3 years I've been blogging and 3 of them were jokes - the 4th which was my daughter's wedding was mandatory :)
See that schnoz ?
That's one of the reasons you will NOT see a lot of photos of me - some women's butts spread - my nose does ...............I'm thinking it'll reach my ears by the time I turn 60
Just a side note : I'm always amazed when I see a woman my age - 55 - that suits - looks fabulous even - without bangs.
And there's a lot of them that do!
But I need them.
What on earth am I waiting for?
It's like I moved into this house last winter and totally gave up on everything..................
( I'm even more amazed that 55 year olds take selfies LMAO )
AND I'M most amazed by the fact that yours truly used to go to the hairdressers once or twice a week -
What in God's name is happening to me?
ok - so here's the story - someone dared me ( at their request they shall remain anonymous - weird I know - but I know who they are - I wouldn't do this for a totally anonymous person because that would be even weirder ) then double dared me to take selfies ( including my face - unlike the first one I took HERE )
The conversation went something like this
" how come you never post photos of yourself "
" because I'm very uncomfortable with it "
" I dare you to do it "
" That's weird "
" I double dare you "
" That's even weirder "
" I'll donate 25.00 to the SPCA if you do it "
" Make it 50.00 and I'll think about it ":
I win the dare this time - but it ain't happening again LMHO
Sooooo - here goes
Here's me trying to be cool - and failing miserably (so you just have to take my word for it - I really AM cool) Peace Peeps ! ( do people even still make the peace sign? )
Notice the one leg up on the John? ( that's what cool people call the toilet, I think )
That's my cool nonchalant pose.
Wanna see the cutest sandals ever?
( the jury's still out on whether people with the ugliest feet on the planet should wear pretty sandals or not )
BUT there's no denying that only a cool person would wear them, right?
( do you know how hard it is to take a photo of your sandals in this direction? Try it ! )
I'm becoming a selfie afficionado !!!
And in my humble opinion only a very very cool person would post photos of herself ( when really she'd rather swallow shards of glass ) on a dare - that would benefit the SPCA in some small way.
Let's see now - I've made good on a bet - ( I WANT to see that receipt ) and I've cried me a river..............so.........enough with the pity fest....................and no more dares being taken on
( for the foreseeable future anyway )
I plan on posting this on a Sunday because it's the day I get the least traffic - and really I'm half way tempted to just send a cheque to the SPCA myself and forget about this all together.
I wrote this up last Monday - let's see if I actually go through with it :)
Have a wonderful day all !
