Yesterday, as I was looking at the photos Scott has taken of me this summer, I noticed something that makes me feel embarrassed. Let me put them all together and see if you notice what I saw:
Did you see it? At last three of them were taken on the SAME day, but still… I am wearing the SAME shirt for each photo! Apparently, whenever I wanted my picture taken this summer, I threw on this blue shirt. No wonder I noticed that it was faded the other day. No wonder it is not a beautiful as it once was. No wonder, I no longer feel like I look good when I wear it. This blue shirt has traveled more than 7,600 miles since June, when I bought it. If I was a reality TV star, they would make me burn it because I wear it too much!
This morning, at the last-minute, I was called in to sub. I threw on some pants, and spent AGES trying on shirts. Ugh! ALL of my professional clothes are TOO BIG! Yes, it’s a wonderful problem to have, unless it’s 8am and you have to get to work as quickly as possible. Luckily, I have a shirt I wear to church and another that I wear to weddings. They both fit better than the others, but I am constantly scared of them falling down too low. Not something I should wear to substitute teach!
Where does this leave me? Well, either tomorrow morning or tomorrow night, I am heading to our
ONE three clothing stores in town, praying that I can find some new clothes. After years of my husband encouraging me to expand my wardrobe, I am finally going to do it! For the first time in YEARS I am excited to find some new clothes! Yay! Who knows, I might go nuts and actually get a nice haircut by the end of the month. Stranger things have happened, like me willingly going shopping for MYSELF and I am committed to buying more than one shirt in multiple colors. Wish me luck!
