Um, nope. Not today, although I might tonight. I usually wait until Wednesdays though. Question, what do you all consider a normal healthy amount of shower days in a week, because my husband and i do not agree on this.

Unfortunately, my poor self care issue is what i consider even more gross. I mean, I eventually do it and definitely do it if I'm going to be around people, but I struggle with brushing my teeth. :( I'm also curious, do folks brush before or after breakfast (another disagreement hubs and I have lol)

people vary alot on their showering and teeth brushing

I had an ocd thing with the toothbrushing
to the point where I had really bad cold sores
so I only do them in the morning now
and it takes me about 10 minutes

probably showering too much
but apparently people do that when they live alone

Oh I usually shower every other day. It's mainly because my hair starts in look greasy/limp and after the second day.

Yeah, I am terrible about teeth brushing. Really don't want to admit how infrequently I do it. I chew gum a lot instead.
