I try to have my daily slice around noon!
Most days, I don’t need a slice of that humble pie, but I have it anyway, especially when my girls are around. You see, when you have daughters, you will have a huge slice, rather you want it or not. Daughters have a way of keeping you level-headed.
Let me dive into the story
Picture it October 7th, 2022
It was 4:25 am, and I had only 4 hours of sleep in a hotel room with a semi-decent bed. That night before was a travel day, and my plane didn’t land until almost 10 pm. I knew I had to shower, lay my clothes out for the following day and get to bed. My uber would be pulling up right at 5 am. So I needed to get settled for the night as soon as possible.
But, getting settled quickly in a hotel is a no go for me. It took me a little bit to get settled and used to a bed that was not mine. Y’all know I just bought a new mattress…yes it may have folded me up like a taco, but we’re on a soundtrack now (here’s that post if you haven’t read it and need to laugh at my foolishness Things that go bump in the night).
Okay, so here I am with one eye open, and the other eye is wondering why my damn alarm clock is going off.
Unfortunately, I looked in the mirror and screamed; my first thought was only Jesus himself could come down here and make me look human.
But I’ll try my best and see what I can do in 20 minutes.
I wash my face, brush my teeth and whip out my handy dandy makeup brushes. I put on a little extra mascara to look as awake as possible. This makeup had to last me all day and make it through the wind hitting my face.
And just like that, it was 4:58 am, and we needed to head downstairs to meet our uber driver.
Dare I say, I felt pretty good and thought okay, girl, you did that. That is until the next morning. Then, as I applied my makeup for the day, my oldest daughter said, “Hey, mom, go easy on the blush today because yesterday it was a bit much, and it didn’t compliment your skin tone.”
My husband jumped in and said, “I thought you looked beautiful; your makeup was just right.”
I love and appreciate his kindness, but he knows nothing about makeup.
I immediately flipped through the pictures on my phone from yesterday. And there I was, just smiling away, looking like homie the clown.
And after that, I ate my humble pie and quickly put away my clown brushes for the remainder of my trip!
