Sometimes, you have to put on a pretty dress.

Sometimes, you have to take out the hairdryer and actually do something decent with your hair.

Sometimes, you have to put some concealer on that zit that came from nowhere and then cover that with some foundation.

Sometimes, you have to put on makeup.

Sometimes, you have to hear your husband come home and say “hey!  You look pretty!”

You have to push down the urge to be irritated that he sounds surprised because you know it’s really been awhile since you’ve done anything nice to yourself.

Sometimes, you have to plan a fun night out.

And sometimes, you have to just let all the bullshit go and smile.

Then, in the name of solidarity, you just have to have that last glass of sparkling wine while your husband downs his last drink and stumble home together, conquering the rocks of Porter on the way.
