Is 34 too old for skinny jeans? The labels says "modern straight" but they look like skinny jeans to me.
Where, you ask, did I find time to shop for jeans if things are as bad as you said in the last post? I was at Cos.tco grocery shopping and spotted some jeans and dug through the piles for my size despite the protests of D. Yes, I bought jeans at Cos.tco becuase that's the closest I get to clothes shopping with 2 girls in tow.(and I can use samples as bribes to get D cooperate.)
Anyways back to my question... Am I too old for skinny jeans? I am not brave enough to post pictures of me in these jeans, a la Angela but I am totally lusting after her brown boots. (which ones did you end up buying/keeping?). If I find a pair of brown boots to love, I will then post a picture of me in the skinny jeans and boots (In hopes that the boots will prevent anyone from actually looking at my butt.)
I use a notebook to plan all our meals. I need to plan things in advance to avoid daily trips to the grocery store and D.G. and I both hate eating sandwiches for lunch more than once a week so having enough leftovers is a priority. When I was working, I had to plan meals or we would have never eaten a healthy meal. Today I was looking back through it to try to find some ideas for meals we haven't had for a while and managed to land on the page with the meals we were supposed to be eating the weekend Reid was born. Of course, this led to a totally unanticipated meltdown. Why do such random things happen now and end in tears? Two years ago EVERYTHING upset me. Now I can handle going out in public and D singing songs about how she loves her sister and her brother and walking through boys' clothing sections but a meal list makes me bawl.
(I'm going to have to just name posts by the date, there's no way to tie the stuff here together. And it's my bedtime so I am giving up. Of course it would have to be the 3rd today.)
