So Fresh And So Clean - AF


According to An Island Life: 

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."


Don’t be alarmed by what I am about to tell you. Just know that you are safe, since you’re on the other side of this computer screen:

I just finished taking a shower.

It was my first since Tuesday.

Listen. I don’t know how it happened, I swear! Wednesday rolled around and I was so busy doing ten thousand loads of laundry, I figured, “Eh, I’ll just shower tomorrow.”

Then Thursday comes along and I was so busy running around doing errands and cleaning my house from top to bottom, that by the time I had time to shower, it was bedtime and I was pooped! I felt gross - especially since I did all that cleaning - but you know how when you’re so exhausted, your eyes start crossing? That was me!

Well, here it is, Friday, and I am FINALLY scrubbed clean. The worst part is? That wasn’t the longest I’ve ever not showered.

Let me tell you about my time in college…

My question today:

What’s the longest you’ve gone without a shower?


If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at today's installation of Aloha Friday at An Island Life. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Ave said...

A week when I was camping :D

Dee said...

I completely understand where that happens! I think probably 2 days-and that happens more often than I'd like. :)

Tami said...

LOL, never. I shower 2x a day. Since beauty school and learning about germs and fungus I obsess over germs ROFL.

Deb said...

Probably 3 days.

Nina said...

Two days and it drove me crazy. Our power was out and our well went out so we had no water. Day three I went to the YMCA and took a shower. I hated it but we had no power for 1 full week.

I am Harriet said...

Maybe 1 day if I was traveling. I really hate that feeling though.

Happy Friday!

Veronica Lee said...

Maybe a day if I'm traveling.

Shelly said...

I think 2-3 days at the most. I can see how that could happen. lol

TheAngelForever said...

After I had my boys I refused to take a shower in the hospital. I had taken one right before I left in labor and when I got back home 2 days later. Sometimes these things just happen.

Mommy24cs said...

I think a day and a half is the longest and it was when I was sick. It's my hair not being washed that bugs me the most.

sheila said...

1 day. Then I feel yucky. But ask me how long I can go without washing my hair, lol

Insanity Kim said...

Yeah, camping takes the prize, but I am at the two day mark too when I am in a cleaning frenzy, sick, etc. It's part of being a busy mom, you're in good company!

Aww my verification word is "audge"! My daughter's nickname! wow!

Auntie E said...

Oh how about 3 weeks...Yeah those old Army days.

sues2u2 said...

1 week while I was away @ girl's camp. This was a recurring nightmare (no shower) that would happen every summer for 6 yrs. Just kidding. I actually loved girl's camp. It was so much fun.

Robin said...

A few days - but I'm not usually don't anything overly strenuous either, but I only wash my hair once a week - if I do it more often it gets really really dry.
Have a great weekend!

One day! You know, like one 24 hour period, I swear it's true! I'm in the shower in the morning AND then again at night. We use alot of soap in this house......hee!hee!

Mighty M said...

I think I went 4 days or so after I fractured my hip in 2001. Otherwise I never go longer than 36 hours.

Becca said...

Generally, I shower every day (sometimes twice a day). But when I get sick, sometimes I go for days cuz I just don't have it in me to shower.

LZ @ My Messy Paradise said...

ugggh...I shudder to think about it, but a week. I was in the hospital during my pregnancy with M and confined to bed for 2 weeks. After a week they let me get up and shower and then again before I went home.

Kekibird said...

To be honest....I have no clue but I know, when my son was young, it was all about a washrag under the pits and a washed face sometimes.

Nicole said...

At the beginning of my pregnancy I was SO sick, I was actually hospitalized several times! I went almost a week without showering, but it was because I could barely move!

Jennifer said...

Probably a day at most, even when hospitalised I was able to shower or be bathed.

KimberlyKaye said...

I think it is 3-4 days, ugh!

kailani said...

I guess it would be a day. I can't go to sleep if I don't feel clean.

ahappyhippy mom said...

LMAO funny post! I would say a day and that was because I was camping! We were close to home so I actually had hubby drive me to our house to shower and then back to the campsite. The site had shower stalls, but there is just something so unappealing about getting naked when spiders are hanging over the top! YUCK!

There are times I get so exhausted that even a shower seems like an overwhelming effort, but I can't stand myself and rinse off QUICKLY.

AudreyO said...

It would have to be when I've been sick and so maybe 4 days or so.

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Two days MAX! Oh, unless I've had some sort of surgery. Then it's a sponge bath. I know, TMI !!

Kristen Andrews said...

one day, if I had my way I would shower 2x's a day I am weird I guess.

Helene said...

Probably 4 days when I was in the hospital on bedrest when I was pregnant with Cole and Bella. I felt so gross and finally begged the nurse to let me shower.

Nowadays, I get up before the kids wake up and shower and then sometimes I'll shower before bed. I'm a clean freak I guess! Glad you finally got your shower!! I bet it was so refreshing!

Theta Mom said...

I would have to say one day. Even after giving birth, I couldn't wait to take a shower!
