Midweek Date for a 40-Something House Frau

Shower. Extra throughly.


And grooming.


Smell nice.

Good bra. Best underwear. Must match!

Nice outfit. Not dressy, but not toddlers playdate at the playground, either.
*not that I'm going to be seen wearing the clothes*

Make-up. Cover up those eyebags. Little eyeliner. Lipstick? Go for it.


Mirror check.

All set.

For the gynecologist.

In case you didn't know it, I'm like the queen of blog-hoppin' lately. It's kind of like square dancing but without the dated outfits, smelly gym, and elderly caller.

Here's the schedule I keep:
Monday: Homestead Revival's Barn Hop and A Cat-Like Curiosity's Monday Mantras.
Tuesday: Heavenly Homemaker's Gratituesday
and Wrinkled Mommy's Tuesday Archive Link-Up
Wednesday: My Life and Kids Finding the Funny
Thursday: A Rural Journal's Rural Thursday Blog Hop, and the Mommy-Brain Mixer at Two in Diapers
Friday: Deborah Jean's Dandelion House's Farmgirl Friday
Saturday: Camera Critter's Life With Dogs Pet Blogger Hop and Country Momma Cooks Saturday Link-Up

Since today is Thursday, that means I'm linking my post "Pumpkins. Bleh." with A Rural Journal's Rural Thursday Blog Hop, and "Parallel Universe" with the Mommy-Brain Mixer at Two in Diapers.

Come join the fun!

  10. Gosh, one can spend (waste?) a lot of time doing these link ups - but doesn't one have fun! This is the first time I've spent as long checking on others who have joined the TALU link this week. Am also inviting folks to visit my blog sometime - soon I hope. Meanwhile, must go and do some real work!
