Re: mascara. I decided I was sick of that part of my routine, so one morning I washed, moisturized, little lipstick, walked into the kitchen, DH took one look and said, you got the flu, baby?
That's hilarious! Men. So did you stick to your guns and ditch the mascara, or keep it?
Sore today, especially when I took off the spliny to shower and hair wash. A sign of healing, I hope? Even woke up sore and had to medicate.
Son #1 was out at a party last night. On the way home with a DD (sous chef from work), they hit black ice and slammed into a snowbank. Son hit his head (was drunk in backseat), but seems okay. Hubby yesterday took a chunk out of his bumper in the snowbank on the edge of our driveway, manreouvering around boys cars. He's not pleased.
Guessing that's not an issue in your locale. This winter has been horrid thus far. All over the city there's bits of car shards and bits of bumpers. I'll have to get a pic of the crapton of snow in my yard.
My hand has been aching a lot again today. Needed more pain meds again like I did yesterday. At least the xray and surgeon visit is tomorrow. Will borrow son's car again. Hopefully can have splint or cast that's a bit less bulky. Can't even fit this one through the sleeve of my uniform coat, and when it's feeling like the -40s, coatless is not an option. I've been wearing civ clothes to work since it happened. And of course, can't put hair properly up, either, aside from a pony, which is not okay in uniform.
Yes, feeling frustrated today. I want to listen to the Paleocon presentations, but am really not in the mood. Started Cordain's while making dinner, but recording volume was really low on my phone, and I didn't want headphones on for other reasons. But I did purchase the package, so will have them all, plus transcripts and videos to keep.
I am really pleased about the transcripts, that is really convenient. I bought the package also so I don't have to stress about listening to everything each day. The first day is so good I am glad I made the purchase.
ugh........ at least you still have the use of the index finger and thumb - is that any help at all???
As for mascara - I totally relate. RARELY do I leave the house without at least a swish of mascara. Honey likes my clean face look too though - he says it looks natural and relaxed. I say I look white, pasty and near death! --- but as long as he's okay with it - I can feel comfortable going sans make-up once in a while.

Snow in Atlanta? I was in Savannah 2 years ago around this time for 10 days and the weather was lovely.
So the fracture is unstable, due to the angle of the break (slightly spiral). Cast for a week, then xray again. if it looks good, cast for 2 more weeks then start physio. If surgeon isn't happy with the position next week, it will be surgically pinned next Tues or Wed, then same treatment in cast for 2 weeks. Of course, hubby is away Mon till late Thurs. As is son #1, who goes away for his pilot selection testing. Just son #2 & me here. Will manage with his help. At least I'll still be able to go to Galveston, but casted.
At clinic till nearly noon, then quite sore from the casting manipulation, so stayed home. Had a long nap after meds.
Still can't fit uniform coat on, or pin up hair with the new cast, so regular clothes for the next while. Hard to find stuff in my wardrobe that's work appropriate and fits over the cast, especially since it's so damn cold. Need warm stuff in layers.
Mascara will be more challenging with only thumb and index finger on right hand.
Oh, 3 inches of fluffy snow!!! Dogs went nuts, eating it and having running fits.
DH and I walked the neighborhood about 9pm, gorgeous!!! So many people outside their homes, LOL.
We become kids when we see it. I understand, tho, traffic is at its worst and wrecks galore.
I saw the snow in Atlanta on the news, quite a sight! I lived in Atlanta for four years during the 80s, can't imagine how such a city would handle snow. I doubt there is a veritable army of experienced sand-spreaders and plowers along with all the vehicles and equipment necessary. But maybe it will all melt away very quickly.
