1. Waking up at the break of dawn to go shopping is my idea of hell on earth. Why would people choose shopping over sleep? I don’t get it.
2. If I were to go shopping today I would be on the hunt for a way out. I try very hard NOT to go shopping unless I have to, and even more so on shopping holidays.
3. The best thing I ate yesterday was homemade tea biscuits with locally-made apple pie jam. Yummy!
4. Something I’ve been learning lately is that it’s ok to have a night out with my friends, without having to feel guilty about it, as I did in my marriage.
5. I cannot start my day without hitting the snooze button a number of times, followed by good morning hugs and cuddles with my kids…and then my morning tea.
6. My nighttime attire consists of pj pants and a t-shirt.
7. I am looking forward to this weekend, catching up with friends I haven’t seen in a while – it’s a weekend when the kids are at their father’s…can you tell?
Day 16- Who Do You Do the Most Crazy Things With OR
What is the Most Crazy Thing You’ve Done?
Hmmm…the thought “if I told you, I would have to kill you” popped into my head when I read this writing prompt. LOL!
Even though I’ve been called crazy a number of times (to which I say “thank you!”), overall I don’t really do “crazy” things. I lead a very child-centred life, filled with routines, Autism, maintaining our home, laundry, meals, etc.
Some people say it’s crazy to go dancing with the girls a couple times a year…especially since my girlfriends and I aren’t “spring chickens” anymore. We go to the same bar each time since we know the staff there. We are definitely older than everyone else there by approx 15 years BUT, we’re the ones who dance better ON the bar (à la Coyote Ugly!) than the 18 and 20 year olds who think they are all that. We are there to let loose for an evening, have fun, get away from our mom responsibilities, and just enjoy ourselves for the night…plus, it’s always fun to use the line “Dude, I’m old enough to be your mother!” when boys are hitting on us. LOL!
What do you do that’s “crazy”?
I read the blog posted last night by The Clothespring Adventures of a WAHM entitled “Shoes I Wish I Could Rock”. My ex-husband is 2” shorter than me, so I was always conscious of how much taller I was than him, especially when the occasion required high heels. I visited dear friends in Vancouver, and had an eye-opening discussion with a very wise friend, who stated that a woman is never completely “finished” unless she has fantastic shoes. (For the record, this wise friend is a heterosexual male friend). I then started noticing that certain outfits “required” a certain height of heel and style of shoe.
I don’t have a shoe obsession…I own less than 20 pairs of shoes (not bad for a female, if I may say!), but I do have very specific heels, none of which are lower than 2.5”. Ok, I may have had a “ceremony” getting rid of any heels I owned that were lower than that after my ex and I split…tee hee.
Now that I’m a SAHM though, I hardly ever have the opportunity to wear anything other than my Crocs, because then I can still chase the kids:
But I REALLY miss wearing these shoes that I bought a few months ago, with the tallest heels I’ve bought so far:
I’m thinking I need a Girls Night Out, and SOON!
