I Just Can't Do It All
I am not one of those mommies who always looks presentable, shaves on a regular basis, and has her fingers and toes nicely painted all the time. I have 2 babies 13 months apart and I work part time. This translates into 0 time for self-maintenance. I know there are some of you out there who manage to do all and maintain yourselves nicely...I am not that talented. We have established this before, I am Frump Girl. Now that I have explained all this, the above picture should be self-explanatory. However, my boss has not yet discovered this about me. Yesterday, since it was like 90 degrees, I decided to wear open-toed shoes to work despite the sad state of my toe nails. I figured no one would notice and even if they did, they'd sympathize with me being a mother of two and understand that I do not have time to get my toes done so they would not call attention to the disaster that is my feet. Well, I had almost made it to the end of the day when on my way out of my boss's office he said, "Hey, what's that on your feet?" Quick put some socks on and hide your feet...Oh crap! There's no time for that! "Ummm, just my chipped nail polish." He and the other lady who was walking down the hall way at the same time stopped to take a closer look at my hideous un-pedicured toes. Great! Why did I think it was safe to wear open-toed shoes?!" He told me that he thought I had some crazy designs on my toes nails but I assured him that it was just 3 month old chipped nail polish!...Note to self: Even if it is 120 degrees outside, if your toes are not presentable wear close toed shoes to work.
