Much too dark too early
Do you realize we're turning our clocks back later this year? Like in November? Oy and it's really dark out in the morning! Which tells me I just need to be getting up later right? Not possible when I need to get the dd to school at 7:40 in the morning, ugh. Here's the problem with that and it took me until this morning to figure out what the hell the problem was, ya'll are going to find this funny too.
I wash my face ever morning and night and I moisturize. Now before you think I'm one of those primping kinda gals don't even go there, I only wear make up and blow dry hair for 3 occasions: weddings, funerals, and graduations. Thank God I try my best to avoid all 3 at all costs. Most of the time I only go to my own of all 3 and hopefully I'll only go to that middle one of mine once and I'll be in ashes for that one so it'll be an easy primp right? So anyway the face washings, I wash and then moisturize with an eye cream and either a daily moisturizer with spf 15 or a night cream in the evening. The eye cream is the same for morning and evening. Well for the past few mornings I've been applying my night cream. In the morning. And then looking down and going, WTF? Why did I just put on night cream? Totally different jars, like completely. One is a pump and the other is a jar. Really hard to confuse.
This morning I've figured it out. It's friggin dark outside. Like hella dark. I'm awake and all, it's after my shower so I'm up but damn it all if it's not pitch black still outside and cold which my body is sooo not used to. I grew up in So Cal. Land of moderate slow change of temperatures and seasons. Well no real change of seasons really. Out here it goes from HOT to COLD. Friggin A man WTF? Moderation anyone? Nope, not here, this is the midwest. Or something, I dunno. Texas man I don't get it. We're starting our 3rd year here and you'd think I'd be getting used to it but it's like a slap in the face. A shocking reminder every time it happens. And then I think "Duh, Texas, not So Cal". It'll still be in the 80's during the day though, just 50 in the evenings and the mornings. It amazes me that plant life still survives in this weather. Shows a great deal of tenacity because if I had to live outside I'd just roll over and die. I just do not have that type of tenacity. It's one of the many reasons the dh does not bother asking me if I want to go camping. Ha! Yeah, no.
