Yes. Three entries in one day. It is January. It is cold. I have settled the fact that I cannot clean while they are awake and moving around. It is too much trouble to get out with three kids in the cold, so I have chosen to stay home most of this week. Josh has been busy lately. I mean, he is here, but his mind is on a lot of other things in the evenings. I can respect that…work (in a bad economy and such), building a home for the first time ( I totally get that), and three little ones that want/need/get his attention in the evenings ( I love that.), a Sunday School lesson to prepare for and people in our class that need an ear from time to time (love that, too). Plus, I have been getting up before everyone to have my quiet time, drink some coffee and enjoy some worship music; I am not having to figure how to fit it into the day when everyone is awake. It has been a great week spiritually speaking, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that I can sometimes feel a bit like a loon when I have been on “stay-at-home-mom island.” This (blog world) is somehow a connection to the adult world, though I haven’t quite figured out why that is…ANYHOW, so I am entering on my blog AGAIN. And this is so not important, but I will continue.
I have heard that a good pair of jeans can change your life. I hate jeans. I do. I wear them, but I hate them. The only thing I hate worse than wearing them is shopping for them. At AnnTaylor Loft I can wear the Julie style for “curvy” figures (a round tail and smaller waist). They cost about $50 or $60. Not bad, could be better….that is what I have thought in the past. After looking on line at some of the suggested brands of jeans, I am thinking that AnnTaylor Loft is just giving these jeans away. True Religion? Ever heard of them? $329!!!! HUH? Yep. Seven? Heard of them? $249! Shut-up. I am serious. Now, I did run across a pair of Seven jeans at Stein-Mart for $34.99, and I bought them a while back….I had no idea what sort of deal this was. So, I am sort of at this weird place. I want to try these jeans on to see if they are really worth it. I mean, if they actually fit me and look good, well, they might be worth spending the money and wearing them for the rest of my life…but could I actually spend that much money on something to wear? One item to wear? Will it change my life or just my bank account? Things that make you go hmmmmmmm……..
