I took the photo up there...but my genius sister, Betsy, edited it for me. :0)
I know something about myself. I've known it for a long time. Wanna know what I know? I know that I need to have a purpose and a reason to get up and dressed each day, complete with makeup and shoes. Now, for me, that reason would have to be GOING somewhere, because who in their right mind is going to get dressed, WITH SHOES, and makeup....if they don't have to actually leave their abode? Not. Me.
My brain and my body appreciate a reason to get up and going....and Wednesday, my friends, is the reason to get up and go. On Wednesday, I get to go and be around people. With makeup. With shoes. Oh....and don't forget the ever-important item: JEWELS.
I'm finding it rather hard with my new 50 pounds to feel or look cute when I have a Wednesday, but I'm trying hard to embrace this body of mine and love it and be thankful it is not a size 20 like it used to be. But I can't help wishing for the 00 that it was, either. Or a 2, or a 4....or anything other than the size it seems to be now.
OK, anyways, I love Wednesdays. Did I tell you that? Because I do. Why? Well, let me see if I can come up with another reason.....I get to have a friendship. That's pretty cool. And....I get to help people SHOP. Yeah, that perked your ears (and eyebrows, probably) right up, didn't it? Figured.
So....today was Wednesday Numero Uno for me this week, and I want you to know that it confiremd to me that when I grow up, I want to be a personal shopper. I want to be a wardrobe junky; a style fiend. Yes. I want to pick out shoes, jewels, makeup, hair accessories, patterns, colors, boots, tights....you get the idea....I want to play in people's closets, stretch their minds (Love you, M...and A.....) and get them out of their boxes just a tad. And then a tad more...until at last, they love to get dressed as much as I do (er...did). I want to take people and help them shop for their size, their body, and their needs. And I am pretty sure I need to take some of my own advice. Right. Here.
Oh...and perhaps the bestest part of Wednesday, next to it being Working Wednesday, is that it is .99 cent day at Goodwill!
