Well, hello there. I hit a slump for a few weeks, and I’m still trying to climb back out of it and work up the motivation to write (or get out of bed or shower), but in the meantime, I have at least been wearing clothes:
Black fake-velvet dress – Wal-Mart (a size 16 [I wear a 24] that I found on after-Christmas clearance for $5 a few years ago – it pays to try things on!); pink cable tights and silver bangle bracelet – Avenue; necklace – Lane Bryant; shoes – Target clearance (they were way on sale, so I bought pairs in black, white, turquoise, and mustard. I have problems).
Peter, who will be 3 in a few weeks, decided to join me for my photo shoot. He was feeling a bit under the weather, so he’s wearing cozy pajamas and one sock.
By far the most exciting $4 I spent this week was on a bottle of Wet ‘n’ Wild turquoise liquid eyeliner. It’s a bit smeary (especially since it’s been hot and muggy here lately), but the color is vivid and holds up well. I plan to wear it everywhere, including dental appointments and PTA meetings.
I’m hoping to write more in the future about depression and malaise, but that requires mustering up the mental energy to write about anything, so. We’ll see.
