Has been amazingly terrible haha
I had all these plans to blog- with these cool ideas that are nothing to do with clothes
And then my grandkids got sick, my daughter got sick, hubs got sick (I put away all the holiday decor by myself), I was super diligent about hygiene and cleanliness but then I got sick-laid around last weekend feeling like I would die-missed two days of work, went back to work (stubborn me don’t want to use 40 hours of PTO being sick) and now I’m laying on the couch another weekend trying to feel normal again!
January is the Monday of the whole year!
Hopefully soon I’ll feel myself and those creative juices will flow again ❤️
Today has been odd- I don’t know- weird really.
To start with I couldn’t find a slip to go with my new wrap dress (apparently no one wears slips anymore!) seriously I can’t just flash my underwear if the wind blows, so my morning was less smooth than I like.
Then LUNCH: I made fish tacos last night and took leftovers for lunch BUT neglected to bring the tortillas (I know it’s the slip incident that threw me off!) so there I was at work with taco-coleslaw mix and fish- I started eating a fork full of fish and coleslaw as if it were salad and eventually felt a little 🤢 (it’s not as tasty as it sounds!) so I stopped.
Then I got home from work and (do I have to create a meal again??) seriously by Thursday my desire to cook has hit a wall and digging my dishes out of my lunchbox made me 🤢 again (thank goodness hubs dumped out my dishes- I couldn’t have done it without hurling)!
So I sat down with plump red grapes and plain yogurt for dinner and my tummy feels better.
Recommendation: Don’t eat fish and coleslaw by themselves. Learn from me friends!
You’re welcome 😉
So since I’ve been sick, I’ve been watching a lot of movies. Usually when I’m sick, I watch a lot of Jane Austen…but this time I seem to be hooked on disaster movies. Being sick calls for lengthy movies (so one doesn’t have to constantly get up and put another movie in…Jane Austen movies….especially Pride and Prejudice…go on forever! Which I love, I love the period dramas/comedies…they’re so fascinating but also long which is perfect when one is ill) But this time, since I just went on a cruise, I felt a fascination with Titanic and Rose DeWitt Bukater!
She went on a cruise-I went on a cruise…granted her cruise ended differently than mine. I noticed one thing:I am not the biggest high maintenance woman on this planet!
I offer evidence of my claim: here is a picture of me at the airport with our luggage (I have two 50# checked bags and one carry on bag (my husband also has two checked bags, but I’ve put shoes in one of his so I guess you have to count them all) and here are pictures of Rose DeWitt Bukater’s luggage (character played by Kate Winslet) “all the trunks from that car there, 12 from here, and the safe to the parlour suite rooms B52, 54, and 56”-explains Cal’s assistant, that bad guy that’s always harassing Rose and Jack. I don’t have near the same number of bags, of course she had these huge hats and several beaded dresses along with corsets that took a lot of room; but holy cow they had TRUNKS…have you ever seen a trunk? I could’ve got all my clothes in my closet into one trunk…I only had two suitcases and a carryon…who knew I’m a simple woman.
Maybe I need to up my game? I’ll be pondering my simple nature (compared to Rose DeWitt Bukater) while I watch another disaster movie-“2012” which coincidentally also has a cruise ship… maybe the next movie will be “Poseidon”???
I thought I would share what is going on in my life today….I am sick…sick…sick….it’s no fun and I feel like I’m going to die (that’s a little dramatic right?) but seriously my head hurts and I can’t even sleep I’m so miserable…and it’s no fun being sick. I would rather feel better. I would rather be shopping at Target or working….
Can I choose door number two? Is that the door where I’m not sick?? I don’t even mind going to work, that’s surely better than being sick. Just for future reference, I would rather work every day than be sick. (Just putting that out in the universe).
So since I’m so sick that I can’t sleep, I’m here on my couch (although the remotes are too far away to reach) and thought I’d share a fun look I found on IG the other day. It’s a pink/red floral skirt combined with a ruffly pink/black sweater and black/white plaid purse from Target-WhoWhatWear! Isn’t it darling? I couldn’t find the sweater or bag in my local store (earlier this week when I wasn’t on my deathbed-dramatic I know) but found them on Instagram and ordered online. The sweater isn’t here yet but will be next Monday and we are going out to dinner for Valentine’s Day so I could wear the obligatory RED/PINK then and totally be on point (yet there is a large dose of black which is a little rebellious and not so Vday obedient) ha ha so check out your local Target/WhoWhatWear section (I can’t cause I don’t have the energy to dress, take a shower, reach for the remotes, eat, or leave the house) but if you’re like me, you could always shop online!
Hopefully soon I won’t feel like this and be back to my normal happy shopping fashion color fun trendy self!
So please send prayers my way that soon I will not be sick and back to being happy??
