Meatloaf went to the library today

Alternate title: Holy cow-I looked like THAT today???

As farm girls and guys, I think we spend so much time working the land, caring for animals, providing healthful and delicious foods for our families and communities that it’s easy to let yourself begin to look like Meatloaf.  I swear, this was me at the library today:

My horrific photo cropping skills aside, I greatly admire and enjoy Meatloaf as an entertainer.  So sorry Mr. Loaf for intimating that you looked as bad as me.

It’s so easy to let things slide in this kind of lifestyle.  First it’s the makeup, then it’s the haircuts, then it’s the color, etc etc.  Next thing you know, you are taking your Blueberry to the library wearing your husband’s lumberjack shirt with your hair looking like a rat’s nest and wearing a face that looks like an aging rocker.  Sigh.  It’s fair to say that I have yet to find the balance between “me” time and everyone else time.  Sheldon?  All he has to do is brush his teeth and he looks great.  Sigh again.   Any other homesteading wives and husbands do a good job balancing time for looking good with doing good work?
