I don’t know whether to blame Murphy’s Law or bad luck on the fact that on one of the few days that I leave my house to run a few errands looking extremely undesirable, I run into everybody that I know ! I mean my outfit was hideous: capri yoga pants, one of my son’s Beta Club t-shirts, and red flip-flops all topped off with a messy high ponytail and a bare face. Not even a smidgen of lip gloss. I would be completely mortified if it were not for the fact that I’m a thirty-something wife and mother with a full-time job, a couple of part-time gigs, and a schedule that appears pretty impossible to the average person. So instead of wallowing in humiliation, I’ll give you justification.
Today was my first day of summer vacation. I have looked forward to this day for weeks. I imagined myself sleeping late, pigging out on junk food, and watching recorded television shows. My day was very, very different from that fantasy. I spent all day working outside in the yard. I raked leaves, cleaned out my raised vegetable garden, planted new veggies, spread mulch in my flower garden, and rid my garage of a few things that I’ve been promising myself to throw out for months! Today was very productive. Even on my “off” days, it’s difficult to remain sedentary. I am going to pencil some of those days into my Cozi calendar. Relaxing from time to time is good. We all need to take time to recharge.
As I was typing this blog, I caught a glimpse of my fingernails. Horror. They took a real beating from all the work that I did outside today. Good thing I have a brand new bottle Nail Life Nail Revitalizer. Nail Life Nail Revitalizer is #7 on my top beauty products list. I began using this product on the recommendation of a good friend. Glad I took her advice. Anytime my nails begin to peel or get weak or break from digging in the dirt, I clean my nails thoroughly and begin applying a daily coat of this amazing stuff. Within a few days my nails are stronger, longer, and healthier. Nail Life Nail Revitalizer has never failed to deliver great results.
So, I have a few things to look forward to in the coming weeks. New blooms on my flowers, fresh vegetables from my vegetable garden, and longer, stronger fingernails!
