I feel a little bit bad for all of our newcomers - did you know that every single day there are 3-5 women who join us?? Welcome, girls! But you new kids are going to think we never do any real work around here. It's just all fun and games, why we even got points for taking a nap the other day. Shirking our responsibilities, yukking it up, being silly.
And you thought you were coming here to get organized.
Well, you're HALF right. I can help get you organized to a good degree, but Home Sanctuary is not really an "organizational" site, per se. I wouldn't really know how to classify what goes on here, except to say that we like to have fun and we love to make home a great place to be. And that's so all-encompassing, there's never any end to the things we can do together!
That being said, let's get to our Small Thing for today, because today is all about fun!
Today's Small Thing is to celebrate being a girl! OK, you can celebrate being a WOMAN if that makes you feel better, but today I'm thinkin "GIRLY!" We girls shoulder a lot of responsibility: life is full of work and care taking and serving. Those are good things, important things, serious things.
But underneath it all, we oughta be wearing a pretty bra and fancy panties! Now don't panic - I'm speaking metaphorically because we all know you can't smile all day in a scratchy push-up bra, but I'm saying we oughta remember that our femininity is what makes us who we are. We bring intelligence and practicality to the table, but we also bring warmth and beauty and softness to it, too.
Darn it, we should smell good, look fine and feel pretty!
So your assignment today is to do whatcha gotta do (take care of the kids, work, run errands) but take a moment to slather on some yummy lotion, spritz on some perfume, get out of those baggy sweatpants, put some lipstick on, or part your hair on the other side...you choose what you'd like to do! I know it doesn't make sense to wear clanky bracelets when you're cleaning toilets....but then again, since when does being a girl have to make any sense? Wear the bracelets if it makes you feel good.
Celebrate being feminine! It's good to be a girl.
POINTS: 40 for digging deep and finding the girly-girl inside!
Let us know: what are you doing today?
P.S. I'm laughing because my day includes hauling ladders and bins of paint - not very glamorous - but hey, I'll be wearing lipstick!
