Today was blah. Got a depressing email about the health of a close friend, both kids still have colds, and I was up 5 million times last night with the baby.
Basically, Day 22 of The Melissa Gorga Experiment blew.
I did the bare minimum to meet my Melissa Gorga-ness quota. The bare minimum.
Things Melissa Gorga Would Have Approved Of:
I packed a lunch for my husband. (Last night’s leftovers.)
I sent him a loving text.
I made dinner- a good one. Pork chops, roasted potatoes, and broccoli.
I cleaned up after dinner AND gave both kids a bath.
I spent the evening hours watching TV with my husband (instead of watching my soaps in bed).
Things Melissa Gorga Would Not Have Approved Of:
I wore ugly sweats and a nursing tank top all day.
I did not brush my hair, apply makeup, change my outfit, or put perfume on before my husband came home from work.
I wore my blue robe while watching TV with my husband.
Wben he asked me for a knife to cut his pork chop, I responded, “Are your legs broken?”
We argued over the necessity of showering every day. Here’s how that conversation went:
Me: “People don’t need to shower everyday.”
Him: “Yes they do.”
Me: “It’s already nighttime. Why would I shower now if I have to also shower tomorrow morning?”
Him: “You could use a few extra showers.”
In the end, I decided to compromise- I took a shower before getting into bed. But I did NOT shave my legs! 😉
Here’s hoping Day 23 will allow me to channel my inner Melissa Gorga a little better…
