I’m wearing jeans today in a non-jeans wearing environment. That is just one manifestation of the fact that I have seem to lost my giveadamn.
I’m not certain of exactly when I lost my giveadamn, but it was sometime around midsummer. I blame the ridiculously hot weather. One day I woke up and decided I wasn’t wearing makeup. Not that day. Or the next. Or the next. It’s been weeks since I’ve pulled out any foundation, eyeshadow or eyeliner. For a while I was at least wearing a little powder and mascara. Then I quit even doing that.
And you know those cute dresses and heels I was wearing all spring and early summer? They’ve been replaced with pants and flats. I don’t even want to think about putting on a pair of spanx!
The loss of my giveadamn is not only affecting my appearance, but my punctuality as well. I used to get to work about 15 minutes early every day. Now I am usually 15 minutes late. When I was on vacation I was up before 6am every day. Now I struggle to get up before 7am. And, yes, I have to be at work at 8am.
When I returned from vacation my alarm clock was flashing. It’s still flashing. I haven’t even bothered to set the clock, let alone the alarm.
This weekend I am determined to find my giveadamn no matter what. I have some important meetings next week and I need to look presentable and kinda cute. I will reassess my makeup and fall clothes. I will get a pedicure. I will detangle my hair. I will set my alarm clock and be on time every single day.
If you know where I can find my giveadamn, do let me know as soon as possible. It’s a dire situation.
Have you ever lost your giveadamn?
