A Bowl and some Fashion

And then there were three...

Three children. Two bowls deep enough to cook oatmeal in the microwave without it boiling over and making a huge mess. Constant turmoil.

Can you tell which one I brought home from the resale shop yesterday?

This is a little outfit I put together this morning to take the kids to Sunday School. It was really cold, so I put the sweatshirt on over the tank top and it lost some of its charm. I'm sorry I don't have a picture of me actually wearing the outfit, but all my photographers were at Sunday School by the time I thought of it.

Raiders sweatshirt: Walmart circa 1980 something. Tank top: University coop. Cut off sweatpants: ???. Blue slippers: Christmas gift from my lovely daughter.

Simple Question

If you know someone who is a single mother, do you think you should try to help her or try to make her life harder?

You'd be surprised how many people choose the wrong answer.

Missing Sweaters

I must just leave sweaters lying around everywhere.

I have been noticing how many of my sweaters have disappeared in the last year or so. I used to have a black, lacy, crocheted bolero sweater that was so pretty and I wore it with everything.

I used to have another black sweater, a short sort of crossover with a double breasted band at the bottom.

There was also a natty little brown zip up hoodie with sleeves that covered my hands.

They're all gone now and I'm sad about it. No telling where I left them.

Yes, they all came from Goodwill. Well, okay, the black bolero might have been in a bag that someone gave me. I can't remember.

A Good Goodwill Story

I will not, I repeat - WILL NOT - allow myself to use the reading glasses from my purse while I'm at home. I don't want to get to class (or a restaurant with tiny print menus) and not have glasses. So imagine my chagrin when I opened my glasses case this morning and found it empty!

Goodwill Girl? Did you use your purse glasses at home?

Luckily we got out of lecture early and I had time before lab to race down to Goodwill and buy some more reading glasses for $1.99.

You just can't hardly beat that. I saw them next to the register on Tuesday. ha!

Goodwill to the rescue.

And now I have three pairs. One for the bathroom, I suppose. Such luxury!

I just checked out "Lost Moon" from the library. It is our next read-aloud book. Is Jim Lovell anyone else's hero?

Must convince myself to study today. I'm interested in anatomy, but I want to read what I want to read, not what we're having a quiz over. What a rebel!

I guess when you turn fifty you can post a picture of yourself in a too short dress. Ha!

Quote of the day: "Don't mock tightie whities."
It's Friday. That means no school, but lots of studying and getting people where they're supposed to be tonight.

The sun is shining. The jeans are drying on the porch rail. I got a call yesterday from the lady who wanted to upload my official information so I can start teaching.

New shoes and a dress that's too short. I don't think I will look like a teacher tonight. Which reminds me: I need teacher clothes. Long skirts and sensible shoes.

For my birthday I will dress like I'm half my age. And eat a lot. And dance. That's the most important thing, the dancing. Well, that and the tee-shirt-like dress.

Fall Days

Looking for a) job b) house c) real friends.

I am using shoe blogs for comfort. Love, also. I thought I had put it back in the closet, but I found it in the crack of the couch yesterday.
