|This was my view tonight|
If I could laugh right now, I would. But I can’t and that will all be explained. Today was one of those days…where all you hear all day is crying and whining and your body is constantly in motion trying to keep everyone happy and you think your husband is getting home early but turns out he’s running four hours late…sigh.
Luis said something tonight that put me off and I don’t even remember what it was but in an attempt to appear dramatic, I left the house and drove off. I was only going to McDonald’s but I didn’t tell Luis that. I needed it to remain a mystery cause I was maaaad and he better think twice before he talks to me like that again or else! It’s hard to be threatening and dramatic when you can’t really go anywhere because a) all your friends have kids too and are getting them ready for bed, b) you look like a deranged soccer mom who hasn’t showered in two days, and c) because you have to watch the clock and make sure you’re back in time to feed the baby. Ugh.
Anyway, after my unsatisfying McDonald’s meal I’m driving back home and see this truck almost tailgating me. When I go to turn into my neighborhood I saw bright lights flashing behind me and thought the truck was doing it because I pissed him off. I was thinking “Ugh, that’s not necessary!” Aaaand then I realized it was a cop. I pull over and look at my nasty McDonald’s wrappers laying all around like a little piggy. I tried stuffing some of them into the drink cup holders. It was at this precise moment that I remembered I left the house without even looking in a mirror or changing into something decent. Oh…my…gatos…I wanted to melt away into my seat. Let me give you a visual.
- My hair, unbrushed and unwashed, is in a high bun with hair sticking out on both sides of my head. Here’s the best part…you know when you pull your hair up and then realize you somehow left a whole bunch of hair hanging in the back that didn’t make it into the updo? Yeah well I left that hair because I was too lazy to redo my bun. So I have a semi-mullet look going on.
- No makeup. And I’m someone who needs makeup to look alive.
- Swollen, cracked lips complete with fever blisters. I was sick and had a fever for two days this week, and I got these blisters afterwards. So yes…I looked like a full blown meth head. Getting a ton of blisters like this has happened to me once before in my entire life, and it was also after being very sick.
- I was wearing a white spaghetti strap shirt and saggy yoga pants that needed to be washed days ago but luckily he couldn’t really see what I was wearing.
