GAH!!! This is why I hardly look in the mirror! Where the hell did all these greys come from?! I was going to skip shaving today, but if this is what I have going on with my chin, I might as well just shave and get it over with. And the dark circels around my eyes are a nice touch...
It's bad enough Mrs. C left a bottle of hair coloring out last week so I could "deal with that situation going on on the top of my head". She'd never let me hear the end of this.
It has to be all the stress. That's it! This is all due to stress. I mean, it has to be that. Right? I'm only turning 35 this year. It's not like I'm getting o-

Not when there are still so many things to get done. I refuse to accept slowing down now. I'm not ready to yet.
We want kids. We’ll have kids eventually. There’s still time. We just have to clear stuff out of the way first. Get on more solid footing financially. Then there’s that kung-fu class I want to join. I still have time to start… Then again, I could so much more advanced if I’d started already…
Whatevs! Anyway, might as well go to the bathroom and shave before Mrs. C wakes up.
OW!!! Damned ankle! I really need to get new shoes.
