Hello again friends! Yesterday was Doug's day off so we spent the day playing together as a family...plus I was avoiding the blog a little until I could clear some thoughts in my head...more on that in a bit but first, here are some fun shots from our day! We took Moses to one of the local playgrounds so he could get his play on. He had a blast. :)
We had a great time! We had to drag him away from the park...One of the things I love about Charlottesville is our awesome downtown. It was voted #1 city in the USA in 2003 or so and I can see why...there are tons of cool shops, places to eat and things to see when you are downtown.
Trees and lush flowers are everywhere...it reminds me of some sort of fair every time we venture downtown.
There is this cool wall down there too...there is chalk available and you can write on it whatever you want. There are usually great messages here...until someone has to ruin it with political garbage. Be nice to one another. :)I have also been working on this lovely little pillow for a special customer and friend. :) What do you think so far Mrs. Holly?
Also, I found this fun website...full of lots of ideas for crafts and activities for kids.
So here is what I am grumbling about at the moment. And here is to hoping that you can relate and that I am not just a spoiled brat who needs to get over it and be thankful for what she has (which I am). So, my closet is a disaster. Not like unorganized or messy but like I hate everything in it. Or at least like 90%. I have very few clothes that I can say that I love. Part of the problem is that when there is extra money to be spent on clothes, I always insist on spending it on Doug or Moses. Doug because he deserves it because he works so hard and/or because he needs clothes for work. Moses because he outgrows things in like half day, by the time I get something through the wash I feel like he has outgrown it. Recently I went to dress him and realized that he had like two pair of shorts that fit him. So, I have been buying a pair of shorts every time I go to Target and we are getting there but I digress... The last straw happened this morning when I went to get dressed and discovered a hole in the BUTT of my favorite express khakis. :( Because of that it took me 45 minutes to find something to wear and I ended up feeling like I looked like a mom in what I was wearing. Yuck. Another part of the problem is that I have so much trouble finding clothes that fit me well...I am pretty tall and slim and I also enjoy being dressed modestly. This is like the worst possible combo it seems as everything is skimpy, too short or on the other end of the extreme...frumpy and tasteless. Add to that the fact that I have next to no fashion sense or sense of style and you have a recipe for what is going on my closet right now. Everything is plain, doesn't fit right or is just ridiculous.
I need help. Or at least to go shopping. Doug, my sweet honey, told me to go out and buy whatever would make it better. He is sweet but that is easier said than done...I have serious issues with convincing myself to buy things for me...others, no problem, me, I can think of 1000 reasons not to. Anyone else struggle with this? Or am I just a brat who needs to get over it and be thankful that there are any clothes in my closet?
