One of Those Mornings

This morning started off great. I got up on time. I was out of the shower on time. All was well and I was set to be on time to work. Then, in the process of styling my hair, something went haywire. In other words a bad hair day ensued. I fussed with it for way too long with absoluetly no different results than the first time and just resigned myself to having a bad hair day.

Then, I stepped into the closet. I just did laundry this weekend so virtually all my clothes are clean, but everything I looked at it seemed as if I'd just worn it yesterday and so I let slip the words that Casey will never understand, "I have nothing to wear!" Of course I know that I have plenty of clothes, but nothing looked right at all. I tried on my white button-down shirt with black pin-striped pants only to notice that the white shirt needed an undershirt (should have known that) and the black pants appeared too short even with my flats (did I grow taller?) So, I changed into solid black pants, which were too long for all my black shoes except my boots, which I don't want to wear in spring.

To make a long story short...I tried several different things only to end up wearing what I had put on in the first place - except I did wear an undershirt with my white shirt. By the time I left the bathroom - 20 minutes late - I still didn't like my hair and I still didn't like my clothes. I felt like I had stepped into some alternate universe where I'm not happy with anything, which is not like me at all. Oh, well. I'll just write it off as one of those mornings and move on. Tomorrow will be better!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only person this happens to. However, right now things are pretty easy since I only have about 3 outfits that fit. And, my hair is in constant ponytail mode. However, I did decide that I want to chop my hair off at first chance. I can't wait to get to the salon and get a major cut. Look for a change soon.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one also!

I totally understand Rachel! And it gets even worse when you have to dress a baby along with the mix. Caleb likes to poop right before we leave the matter if we are on time or already running late. I've had to learn to be much more flexible.

I think I made the "I have nothing to wear" just the other day and I am sure that I got the same look/response from Dan that you got from Casey...guys just don't get it do they?

That kind of thing used to happen to me ALL the time. When you're getting ready for a long day of work, you just can't face it knowing you'll be unhappy/uncomfortable with what you're wearing.

Now I pretty much stick to shorts & tank tops, but I still have days like that more than I should! And lately there are plenty of mornings where I actually wish I could fix my hair.
