After Petra was born, finding time to do even the simplest things was much more difficult than I expected. For the first few weeks just getting dressed in something other than sweatpants or pajamas was more than I could manage. Even showering and cleaning my teeth twice a day wasn't always doable. Despite all the sleeping they do, newborns fill all your time, or Petra did anyway. Thankfully those days have passed – I'm washed and flossed every day now.
And I've finally gotten around to doing a few Janette-maintenance activities like going to the dentist, getting my back tweaked, and making an appointment for a hair cut. I now have shiny clean teeth and a relaxed back. And as of Saturday afternoon the hair will be out of my eyes. I feel like a whole new woman.
