1st Day Off and #7 Beauty Product

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 RevitalizerNail 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!

  1. Wow! You worked your butt off- I am feeling super lazy!

    • It was totally unplanned! I wanted to be super lazy, but I’d been putting it off for way too long. Also, I thought about all of the calories I could burn doing yard work! Lol

  2. Where do you find the time?!?
