OK I don't know exactly what everyone means by 'letting oneself go' but now I suspect I have given everyone this mental image of me as an obese, scraggly-haired troll wearing a taped pair of glasses and a forgotten pumping bra, and a lapel button that reads "What YOU lookin at?!".
So like I said, I do like to be a healthy weight and I wear reasonably passable clothing (albeit I'm not very fashion-oriented, but I do like shoes!), and I certainly want to retain and fan whatever ragged remnants are left of the initial sizzle in my marriage.
Along those lines, I just got myself a nice haircut and blowout yesterday! Which my husband did not notice. Next item on the agenda: pedicure!! Maybe next week if I can figure out the logistics.
