Or just cleaning myself.
But I hate the whole process. I don’t mind actually being IN the tub, it’s just…getting naked in front of a mirror….the back is freezing when I go to lay back on it, etc. The same with the shower. It’s too cold until it’s too hot. The water pressure is non existent, so I leave feeling more like a wet dog than I clean human.
Getting out though, the absolute worst. I spent my teenage years living in my mother’s basement in Utah. It was RIDICULOUSLY cold down there. I’d get out of the shower, throw my clothes on as fast as I could and jump back in bed until the shivering stopped. It do it even now, just out of habit. Lance and I shower together most of the times I shower. (Because we care about the planet and want to conserve water. Which is also why I don’t shower every day. I care too much.) When I’m done showering, I’ll start into my ritual, and Lance will meander behind me, towel drying me as I struggle to get my sweatpants up over legs that I had forgotten to shave (usually just one of them) that are still dripping wet.
My hair takes three days to air dry.
So the whole process is doomed from the start. Sure I get clean, but at what cost? When I do shower and actually DO my hair (it’s called Sundays) and makeup, I feel like I deserve some grand reward. I trophy. Or at least a shirt that said I actually showered. The irony of the shirt though? I’d probably wear it until I showered again…days…
I have the third installment of my son’s IEP meeting today. So I have to at least NOT stink. But don’t worry about me, I will not go gently into that good shower. I’m throwing an internal fit of epic proportions.
Can you see it in my eyes? There’s a lot of pain there. I do not want to do this today. But I will. I will shower.
