The No Bra Day

Let’s face it.  We’ve all had one (or many) of those days. You know, the days where you just don’t bother putting your bra on.  No make-up, messy bun, pjs (or yoga pants), kind of day.  Today was one of those days for me. On a side note…have you ever had one of these days?  The day when you don’t wear a bra?  The day when you didn’t put a bra on and then you HAD to go out to the store or something…and you forgot that you weren’t wearing a bra?  I mean, if your girls are small, it may not be a big deal.  If you haven’t nursed four babies, it may not be a big deal.  But when your girls are biggish and you HAVE nursed FOUR babies!?!  Well then you might cross your arms as you walk through the store and hope no one looks at you weird…I think I’ve done this a couple of times.  Maybe no one would even notice…but you know…after nursing those four babies, your girls may not be as perky as they once were…am I right?  Can I get a witness?  Ugh…I also used to have this issue of rushing in the morning and only shaving one leg.  One leg!!!!  How in the world did I forget to shave the other leg?!?  Okay…enough with my issues. So my little guy has been sick for several days and my daughter was under the weather most of last week.  Needless to say, things that would normally get done around the house, just didn’t get done.  Christmas decorations still need to be taken down, menu planning still hasn’t happened, there is a HUGE pile of socks taunting me from the couch, and there is popcorn on the floor. Popcorn. On. The. Floor!  My kitchen is a mess.  On top of this, I’m trying to lose weight.  Losing weight sucks.  It just does.  It’s hard not to give in to easy, convenience food when you’re hungry and going crazy just trying to get things done!  But I didn’t give in.  Thanks to leftovers.  Oh how I love you leftovers!

We were supposed to go to the Zoo today with our homeschool coop.  It didn’t happen.  I needed to finish grocery shopping today.  That hasn’t happened yet.  My 10 year old just puked outside while taking the trash out because it was”So gross!”.  Oh. My. Gosh!  Oh yes…I forgot!  My dog is sick.  She has been throwing up her food for the last few days and the earliest that I could get her into the vet is tomorrow.  Plus, my chihuahua won’t eat his food.  He will only eat the cat’s food.  The cat won’t eat her food anymore, but of course she’ll eat tuna!  Ahhhhhhh!!!!

So here I am, no bra, in my pjs, hair up in some sort of messy thing, no make-up, and feeling like I haven’t accomplished a single thing.  But I have, haven’t I?  I kept my humans alive today!  Woo hoo!  They are fed and clothed and healthy (or almost healthy again!).  My little one successfully laid down for a nap.  I attacked that evil sock mountain with a vengeance!  I helped my monkey boy with his homework and made him do his chores BEFORE playing with friends.  I didn’t give in!!!  I washed dishes.  I told each person in my family that I love him/her.  Oh!  I paid a bill too.  Yes!!!  Celebrate the small things ladies!

Please share your crazy no bra day moments with us!
