It's the little things in life....

Thursday I went and had my eyebrows done. Waxed eyebrows are one of those little things in life that can make a huge difference on my entire outlook. With three kids, it has definitely turned into a luxury! It's not that big of a deal, really. I just have to go to Beauty Brands, sit for 10 minutes and then pay $12. The big catch is that it's most certainly not the kind of thing that I can do with a 2 year old in tow. I would also not head out to Beauty Brands in the evening after the kids are in bed. "See ya, Honey. I know we haven't seen each other today, but I'm off to get my eyebrows waxed." (There are other things I do in the evenings, and he does too, but somehow getting my eyebrows done doesn't really seem THAT important!) Mary goes to the sitter one morning a week, and that would be the perfect time, but I usually have so many other things to try to accomplish in those three hours. So, the eyebrows never take priority. But I'm telling you, when I get them done -- 10 minutes and $12 later -- I feel like a new woman. Does anyone else feel that way? I look in the mirror and I wonder why I didn't do it two weeks sooner. When, in so many ways, your life does not seem like your own, taking the time to do a little something that is luxurious can go a LONG way!


  1. Were your eyebrows that bushy that they impacted your outlook?

  2. Haha! They were bushy enough to affect my perspective.
