mamajama- I know what you mean. I don't spend money on lots of beauty products, I don't "do" my hair, I don't wear makeup most days; and all of that is okay with me. Sometimes, though, I find myself thinking "Why do all of these other women look so much more polished and perfect than I do?" and realize that's it's because they DO do those things. And while I don't look down on them for doing that, and, in fact, sometimes admire their beauty skills, I also don't want to let those things control my life that much. I like being able to jump out of the shower, get dressed, yank a comb through my hair, and run out the door. The rest of it just takes so much time that I'd much rather use elsewhere.
