“I’m sharing my life as part of a Schick® Xtreme3® sponsored series for Socialstars.”
Our blogging life can be very interesting at times. There are last minute client requests, the latest fall fashions, social media mayhem, or a last second invitation. Since we live just outside NYC, we are lucky enough to get invited to some very cool parties and events. So many companies are based in NY or know to make an impression they have to hold epic events and make a splash here. It makes our jobs that much more interesting and inspiring. These planned and unplanned “date nights” also make for a happy wife and happy life! It’s great to get out, just the two of us, and, while we are working, have a night together.
Sometimes, though, a last minute invitation that can’t be passed on can make for a stressful day and even more stressful planning. We have 3 busy kids and we run a few businesses from home. There are usually not enough hours in the day to get it all done, especially comfortably. When you through a curve ball like having to get ready and go into the city for the night, well, “it” gets real. We have to get all of our deliverables done for the day, now at a much earlier time since we don’t have the afternoon anymore. There’s some frantic typing and photo sessions going on these days. The deadline is looming large and the nervous energy is palpable. I guess this excitement and fulfillment when delivering to the client is what keeps this job so interesting.
While all of this work is getting done, we also have a very lively and busy little 2 1/5 year old that needs to be tended to. He also not has some activities like nursery school and mommy and me mixed in. Then when the older kids come home, it’s homework, gymnastics, soccer, religion, playdates, tests and who know what else. Add to the the need to get a sitter…hello grandma and grandpa. Can you swing by? We will set you all up and have the kids car pool to their many destinations.
I can get a little nuts, but it’s fun. It’s never boring, that’s for sure. Plus, it pays the bills. What more can you ask for?
When all of this is going on, we also have to find a few seconds to get presentable for the event. Haircuts for me, manicures for her. 100s of outfits changes for her, a clean shave for me. Next to wearing an outfit that’s wife approved, having a clean, close shave is just an indisposable part of my job. When the pressure it on and I need to shave and make quick work of my scruff while I’m juggling the kids, work, and who knows what else, my Schick® Xtreme3® razor is a simple and indisposable comfort that gets me through those crazy days. I don’t have to worry about not having a great shave, ever. That takes a lot of stress out of the day for me, for sure. I know that I can shave quickly and get the job done when I need to, and when I only have a few minutes before we have to catch a train!
I’m sure you have crazy days, too. It seems like we all do these days. What gets your day out of whack? How do you deal with it? Do you love that or hate that? At least you have a few options when you are looking to shave to ensure that you are ready to tackle the crazy days and look the part for date night with the wife. The Schick® Xtreme3® Ultimate Razor, the Schick® Xtreme3® Sensitive Razor, and the Schick® Xtreme3® Refresh Razor are all perfect for helping you get it right when time is tight!
