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…

    Ok, this is really bad.. Do you think you might be suffering from post partum depression? (I know I spelled it wrong) im sure struggling to do things like take a shower was never a problem in the past for you. Please take a fish oil supplement with omega 3, seriously, I’ve read a lot about how nursing depletes your brain of the omega 3 it has stored and you have to replenish it with omega 3. I tried it after my baby and within 3 days I felt a world of difference.

      Monica, I’m going to look into the fish oil supplements! Thank you! I agree with Jessica- it’s more about not having the time. Sure, I’d like to be showered and dressed nice each day, but other things have to come first. At least right now. Hopefully soon I’ll get into a groove of early morning working out followed by a shower. Hopefully! 🙂

    Showers are overrated. I shower every other day and sometimes I have to remember when I showered last. Its not that I am depressed – I just don’t have the time. Baby Z wakes up whenever and then before I know it, Toddler O is up and ready to start the day. When they nap, I have to do things like get ready for dinner, maybe eat my lunch, etc. Its a sad fact of reality. When did kids become so demanding of one’s timne? I surely was an easy baby, ha
