I finally found a dress that I can wear (with my new sandals) to my grandson's 1st Communion next week. I shopped at 3 stores, Penney's, Macy's, and Sears, and have never seen such a collection of UGLY dresses in my life!
I like the colors in the dress I bought but it is almost too short - most of them are shorter these days, and it makes my hips look huge. Don't remind me that a year or so ago when I weighed 105 # I wanted desperately to have big (shapely) hips! I'm now 30# heavier and I have more hips than I wanted, and rather than being shapely they are just big! I am past the point that I think I look lovely in anything, and it doesn't bother me that I don't. I'm a grandma, right?
Even though I'm a grandma, I still stop and look up when I hear a kid call out "Mom" in a store. It doesn't even matter the kid's age, sex, race, or whatever. "Mom" just rings a bell, and I think a lot of women are the same way - I can sometimes see them look up when I do, when the "magic word" is spoken.
I love using my son's treadmill and the fact that I only have to walk downstairs to use it. I have to keep telling myself that I can pay for many years of gym membership for what that treadmill cost!
The weather has been absolutely beautiful and sunny, although I can't believe I can be chilly in 70 degree sunny weather. It is a different 70 in California and I hate it that I feel such a difference.
