I’ve always dreamed of being one of those girls who never needed makeup, the ones with perfect skin and dark lashes and brows. I wanted my beauty routine to consist of washing my face and leaving the house.
I’ve finally figured out how to do that. Or at least how to look like I am.
Charlie has two baseball games tonight. TWO! Which means that after an entire day of not leaving the house for anything except my run (which doesn’t really count because I’m not going to stop and talk to anyone) and school drop off/pick up (which does not require me to get out of the car or interact with actual adult people), I will need to get myself together to go to the little league field.
Yay for that.
I do like pink — why do you ask?
I wrote recently about my devotion to sunscreen, and about how you should also be lotioning up every single day. A couple of you have asked about the every-two-hour rule, particularly for face — specifically, you want to know how I reapply sunscreen every two hours all day long without taking my makeup off.
Let’s talk about that.
I went to the dermatologist today. It turned out to be a more exciting visit than I was anticipating.
I made the appointment in the first place because I had a spot on my nose that wasn’t looking right. And because Rita put the fear of God in me recently when she went in to see her dermatologist about a mole that her mother thought looked suspicious and he said, “Yeah, that’s cancer.”
On the way home she called me and said, “You WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS! I have CANCER!!!” And I gave her a lecture about wearing sunscreen ALL the time. Because I’m helpful like that.
(I’m recapping that lecture today at Work It, Mom. You’re welcome.)
