I would like to know when I will finally grow up to be this wise person who knows how to do things that I remember my mother and mother-in-law knowing how to do inherently or did they perhaps fake it well like I try to do?
Let’s see….. am I just more honest or more challenged?
I haven’t figured that one out and I don’t know if I want to………
hopefully my sons and my husband won’t either! Ha, do we really think I can hide these character flaws, or should I say cute quirks of mine when I talk about everything I do ad naseum trying to figure out what’s up with me?
Well, as we speak, or should I say as you read, I should be packing, but I’ll do anything to put off that travesty! For some reason I am a little perplexed what to pack when it comes to almost every situation. It just seems like a bigger job than it really should be. Once I actually crack down and do it, it’s not so bad, especially since this time we are driving to our destination of Vegas, and I don’t have to kowtow to the regulations of flight. I can pack as much as I can fit in our car, within reasonable bounds I’m guessing, before my husband wants to kill me for being a fanatic.
I just obsess about what I might want to wear, you never know what might be appropriate do you? It all depends on the mood, the weather, the situation, the occasion, and since we’re winging it there in Vegas, we haven’t made any concrete plans, how the hell do I know what I’ll need? Then add on that since I’m always chilly, we know they crank the air in the casinos, yet I want to look nice . . . hmmm quite a conundrum. Now you see my problem, don’t you?
Then there are all the eye-creams, eye brow pencils, sharpeners, eye shadows, blushers, hair products, moisturizers, round brushes, etc. that can’t be done without. It’s not like guys who need a few pants, golf shirt, t-shirts, shorts and they’re good to go!
So, I’m going to go be a brave little soldier and attack the problem with a smile on my face now, no time like the present. Wish me luck! I know, it’s really no big deal, I’m just making a mountain out of a mole hill, right, since I have so many clothes to pick from and don’t want to wish I brought something I didn’t! Yeah, that’s it…. See ya, gonna’ go pack.
