When I wear this dress, it's a rare time you'll see me with anything that cuts close to the neck. I have a tendency to feel like I'm choking when I wear something close to my neck, which is why you'll never see me in turtlenecks and seldom in a tight fitting necklace or scarf. And I love this dress I picked up at the two birds garage sale and had worn it to sing at a wedding a few weeks back, but I was able to take it off after a couple of hours. Yesterday I decided to wear it all day. By the end of the day, I was pretty uncomfortable! I joke with my mom that we were hung in a former life - she has the same problem. Anyway, I will still keep this in my closet because it is fun, but may not attempt an entire workday in it again!
Today I have dressed down. We are very close to finishing the giant construction project on the 2nd floor of my office building and my boss and I are going to be running around working on finishing touches like putting wastebaskets in exam rooms and things like that. She told me to come dressed comfortable in jeans and tennis shoes. I figure I'll probably get some exercise if nothing else!
I'm so forgetful in the mornings sometimes, I blame it on not getting my coffee until I leave the house. We bought a really nice jacket for the Pants Monkey at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago. Our music group is doing a wedding this weekend and since we'll be all dressed up, I said we should go have a nice dinner afterward. So he asked me to take this jacket to the dry cleaners since there is one near my work. They are closed Mondays, but are open again on Tuesday so I figured if I dropped it off today, he'd have it all ready by Friday. Guess what I promptly forgot this morning. He said he even ran after me but I was already gone. I'll have to see if I can sweet talk the nice dry cleaner people into getting it done super fast if I drop it off tomorrow!
