All I want is a shower!

Why is it so incredibly hard for me to find time to shower?  Granted, if I had the shower above, perhaps I would find more time to actually take one, but this is real life.  In real life, I race out of bed at 5:45am to throw on workout clothes and get the kids ready for school.  The day takes off from there and suddenly, it is 5:00pm and I have not taken a shower yet.  That is not my intention.  I actually always think about taking a shower when my daughter goes down for a nap.  Perfect time right?  Well, it is also the perfect time to.....

* fold laundry
* empty the dishwasher
* make the beds
* prep dinner
* clean the playroom
* sweep/vacuum the floor
* check email/Facebook/Twitter
* a number of other things I find to do

I constantly tell myself, "Just one more thing then I will get in the shower", which leads to the next and the next until suddenly Baby Girl is talking on the monitor and CRAP, it is time for school pickup.

Don't worry, I do shower.  It just usually ends up being at night instead of when it should be, after I workout (yes, I sit in sweaty clothes all day.  You are welcome to judge).  I know this time will pass.  There will be a day when I will be able to wake up like a normal person, shower and go on with my day.  Kids grow up right?  Until then, I will continue to use Lululemon, TreSemme Dry Shampoo and Degree deodorant to hide how gross I am.

Sidebar: If you have judged me through this post and are one of those woman who has the ability to look absolutely put together with your three kids in tow at 7:00am, I am jealous of you and would LOVE to know your secret.  That being said, if it involves waking up at 5am to do it, I am not interested. 


  1. Showering is overrated. All that time to wash and dry hair, moisturize every square inch of skin afterward...who has time for all that? Pick up some dry shampoo (or use baby powder) and save yourself all that time. ;)
