You know, this is the time of year that reality sets in. Spring Break is over . . . We are on the downhill slide. All that new-school-year optimism about what we will accomplish is morphing slowly into actuality.
I was reminded of this recently when I was shopping at my favorite make-up store. (That is “make-up” as in beauty supplies, not the relationship kind!) I was almost out of face soap, so I was looking for a new soap that would bring a youthful glow to my face, which seems more old and wrinkly by the day. Like they say in Steel Magnolias, “Time is marching on . . . mostly across my face!”
So back to my story . . . I saw a jar of special soap that had extraordinary oils that promised to rejuvenate my face and make me look years younger. Well what do you think I did? Of course, I bought it! (I might have actually bought two.)
Home I went with high hopes. I walked into the bathroom to put the jar of miracle soap in my shower caddy with the nearly empty old soap. Suddenly I froze! I had placed my new, fancy-dancy miracle soap next to old soap that was exactly the same soap that I had just purchased! 
To my horror, I realized I had already been using this rejuvenating, youth-generating product! Oh my, this is as good as it is going to get!
