I learned Something about My Mom

Today as I was completely stressing over the 200 things I need to accomplish I learned something about my mom that I never focused on. One of the things on my list (love how this makes the list these days) was a shower. My hair looks horrible and if I want to leave the house I will need to fix that the shower would do that. My mom for as long as I have known her washes her hair in the sink what seemed like everyday. I would think why not just hop in the shower quick you get all clean instead of just partially. She had four children, as I looked at the two in one shampoo and conditioner in the guest/kids bath today it dawned on me. There is not time for a shower everyday or anywhere near it when you have children. I washed my hair in the sink today and the whole minute I thought this is why she always did this, Now I can leave the house and continue doing the 200 things I need to and probably I will take a shower tonight after the kids are asleep but for now I can leave the house knowing at least I don't look like a mess even if I am...

so I am one of those wierd people who has to have a shower before my day can really start, even if I can only be in for a minute I just have to hop in.

That's not a bad idea. Maybe I would actually do it if my hair weren't so dang long!

Dear TAnya,
I have waahed my hair many times in the kitchen sink. One reason is that I am so short, it is easy to do. Another reason is that it is handy when someone else is in the bathroom and a shower is faster later when I can get into the bathroom.
Love you,
Aunt Grammy Ruby
