I DON'T GIVE A....

at work, I do activities with the elderly and one of the women who happens to be 102 or 103 years old  sits in her chair near the nurses station and says, "I don't give a damn".  She has every right to feel this way.  She doesn't say it all of the time but if she isn't feeling great or if she is feeling frustrated about something, this is my cue to let her be. I just find others to include in our activities but try to include her next time when she is not, not giving a damn.  Today, I don't give a damn either and I am not even half her age.  I put my  frizzy hair up, put on comfy clothing that I felt like wearing, no make-up except mascara and gloss, and off to Macy's I went.   Have you ever had a day when you don't give a damn?

everyone has days like that sometimes and the best thing to do is relax with good food and a good book (or film if you're feeling too lazy to read!)

Hi Dawn! With my mom temporarily in a health care center getting physical therapy for her hip replacement, I've been getting up in the mornings and after a quick bath I just throw on stretchy pants and a comfy top and GO! I am clean...but that's about it! I love having grungy days at times; it's very relaxing! And I admire you for the work you do. It takes a lot of patience and energy!

I have these days quite often Dawn! LOL Some days I just don't want to get dressed and I don't care that I don't care:-)
Glad to know I'm not alone.

Yes! Today, in fact. It's dark and rainy and something came up so I'll only be going into work for 4 hours this evening. Ugh.

Most Sundays you can find me in my "I don't give a damn" attire - unbrushed hair included!

hahaha... so funny & yes sometimes I don't care what people think, like today I'm not wearing any makeup, not even mascara & I'm at work, but it's also a good thing that almost no one sees me on days like this.

that would be most of days for me hahaha. i live where i only know less than 10 people so dressing up is not necessary.
love your attitude!
