Well, let me tell you something. He (or she) isn't always going to be home! That's a fact with military life. The drawdown in Afghanistan is just going to mean more trips to Africa or Korea. There will still be plenty of TDY's, restricted tours, training rotations and, yes, even deployments. He will be gone again. I know this.
So why, for the love of all that smells good, do I pretend that I am only worthy of smelling extra special good when he is home? Don't get me wrong. I use my Secret every day, but it's just a neutral mom smell. Why do I even have this great collection of scents--many gifted from him--if I don't treat myself and those around me to the idea that on any given Thursday I deserve to smell great?
One of my 2014 resolutions is now to smell good all the time. Starting tomorrow. Because I already got ready for today and I forgot my resolution. But you can be sure that tomorrow I'm putting on that expensive French parfum. Promise!
Yo homes, smell you later...
