Gussied Up

I have thought for a long time that we women are always getting gussied up for each other. Maybe I think this because I’ve been married to the incomparable Chris Wilson for nearly 10 years. Or it may be because of unrealistic expectations. Especially after seeing Diane  Sawyer’s report on it. There was actually a study proving that less is more when it comes to makeup. Don’t get me wrong–I like Sephora a lot. A lot lot. I could continue, but I won’t. Yes, I was the one at the gym with all of my makeup on. Very light-handed. I’ve been wearing makeup since I was 14. You’d think I could give myself a pass, but I can’t. I have tried. You would think I could perhaps give myself a break here, but I cannot. Recently, I went dress shopping for my brother-in-law’s wedding. I’m still picky about what I wear. Maybe a little, but definitely not a lot although I don’t miss fitting rooms. There’s also the fact that I’m always in a wheelchair, for Pete’s sake. Who’s Pete? I have no idea, but I’m guessing Google does. I suppose it is just that I am way too hard on myself. And Cayte, no. The holes in my heart went undetected my whole life. They were ASDs and a PFO.
