Putting the Diva back in DivaHick

So I was absoltuely horrified yesterday when I found out I broke my first rule of the DivaHick. By the time FarmerGeek came home, I was unshowered, sweatpants, sweatshirts, frizzy, faded hair, pale as a ghost, bags under my eyes, and not even a pair of earrings.

I have lost the divaness...

See it's very easy to do, when it's -15 outside, and the only one to see you all day will be your dogs, chickens, and your husband. But I got to say, it doesn't make me feel good. I felt yucky and it was hard for me to get going and do anything.

ANd not that I'm one of those women who vacuum in pearls and heels (although I have, but that's a whole other story.) and feel the need to change my clothes and redo my makeup because my husband is coming home (which would totally backfire since he won't kiss me if I'm wearing lipstick), I just don't think wearing scrubby clothes everyday is a good thing romantically. But not because I think FarmerGeek won't find me pretty anymore, but I won't find myself attractive...

Now before you come up with all the situations as to why it's necessary, I completely realize that there are going to be days where you don't have a choice. It's -15 and you have to milk the cow/ fix the roof on the barn/ woke up to late and had to get the kids to.... But if you find it stretching past a week, you might be in a slump.

OK, I admit it. I'M in a slump.

So I think once a week, I'm going to post babysteps on how to become the Diva Hick you really are. (Sorry guys! You can ignore that one.) Give a shot, see if you like it, and go from there.

I'll just bet you still look pretty good, even if you lost your Diva for a bit!

In the long run, it's all in how FarmerGeek and you percieve it, isn't it? Bake him some fresh cookies...and that should improve his perception!!

Hey now, it has nothing about my perception. As she said in her entry, its not about me. She never believes me anyways.
