Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple again, even though Mass was an abysmal C- for one naughty 2 year old, and I didn’t actually get photographed in my church clothes.
Moving on. All fancy photos courtesy of my handsome husband who encouraged me to frolic on the front lawn while our mysterious neighbor’s roommate’s wife (does that make sense? Me neither.) smoked sullenly against the side of her Chevy Fiesta and eyed our crazy up and down.
Casual hair tuck.
Not a Honda commercial. (Okay, maybe a little bit. 2003 Honda Accord LX, anyone? Our buyer fell through today.)
The decidedly-casual-not-for-Mass outfit details: Top: Old Navy (thrifted) Necklace: Target Jeans: Express. Full price. Because of this. Shoes: Blowfish (thrifted) Tank: Kirkland’s Best (because I’m worth it.)
Onward and upward to Advent.
I’ll be off facebook, instacrack and all other non-work related forms of social media for the ‘little Lent’ of Advent, and boy oh boy do I need it. I have been a festering ball of stress and emotional instability all week long, culminating in a voluntary 4 am wake-up yesterday in anticipation of our somewhat underwhelming ‘indoor garage sale,’ in which we sold approximately 1/3 of our earthly possessions, which is 2/3 less than we needed to.
Trying so hard not to freak out every hour, on the hour, about what needs to get done, and instead focus on what is being done for us, i.e. by God, Who is actually in control of this and all situations.
Also trying verrrrry hard not to think about the 2/3 of a pack of Camel Lights resting somewhere in the bottom of my trash can. Stress habit or not, it was becoming something of a hindrance to my mile time and to my ability to smell not awful when Dave gets home from work.
