I know I am always overdressed for where I live. I don't care. I am not going to dress in jeans a t-shirt and sneakers all the time. I like to wear dresses and heels. Not just dresses, but nice quality dresses and gorgeous 5" Platforms. Today I wore a purple Herve' Le'ger LKE dress with some Glint shoes. What I hate is that I always get the question "How do you walk in those?" or "You will regret wearing those when you get older". What they don't know and I don't know why I always feel the need to let them know is 15 years ago I hurt my ankles. I was supposed to wear a brace on my ankles until they healed. I didn't want to wear those ugly things and even while in pain I would wear high heels. After time went by my ankles healed but they healed incorrectly since I was always in heels. The tendon heeled short since my ankle was in the upward position. So when I wear flats my heels and tendons hurt something awful. So when people say how do you walk in those, I think the same thing. How do you walk in those flip flops? Ugh. I don't like flip flops or sweats but I don't go around commenting on it. You like what you like, I like what I like. Remember we are all different. We all have our own thoughts and opinions. I'll keep mine, you keep yours.

Well right now I am on the couch in pain. I ache everywhere. Every muscle, every bone, every part of me. However, my yard looks nice again.
We had let our yard go. All of us too damn lazy to pull a weed. They got really strict with water usage here and Mr.Man cut the watering schedule back too much and all our plants died (but of course not the weeds. Somehow they thrive and survive.). Our back yard is full of dead grass now.
So we reset the watering and today I decided it was time to get to work. I had to make three trips to the nursery to pick plants up. Kid 2 was the only one to really help me. Squishy pretended to help. Often mysteriously disappearing. Kid 1 decided he would rather clean the house than step foot outside. So I put him to work indoors.
We began our work around 10 AM and we walked indoors at 8:40pm. Our only breaks were when we went to the nursery and we took a one hour break at 3pm. But our front yard is finished and looks beautiful! Hopefully it stays that way.
Off to take a bath I go.

Well this morning I finally decided to go out shopping. I have been dying to do so for a while. Call it shoppers withdrawal. Well, after I finished getting ready in a lovely Express pencil skirt with a beautiful emerald green satin top and BeBe Amaya heels, I heard on the morning news that Farrah had lost her fight with cancer. That's sad. I have lost many close ones to that awful disease.
I got my shopping fix as I came home with five new dresses and a bit of jewelery. Yay. I think tommorrow I will do some more. Anyways while shopping I overheard a conversation where they said that Micheal Jackson had also passed. Wow. I kind of expected it. I am hooked on TMZ and they kept showing him visiting a dr's office.
Once home I put my goodies away. I then had to go back out to go to Costco. I hate going there because they don't have one near my house. I have to go quite some distance to get to one. I made my purchases then headed home again. Once everything had been put away it was now time to make dinner.
Dinner came out yummy and now it's time to get ready for bed.

Well like always they give you a four hour window. So I had to stick around all morning. They then call to say they are running late and they give me a new four hour time frame. So my whole day was ruined. Mr man and kid 2 went fishing just as they had planned. I don't expect them home until really late since they don't leave until it gets dark.

The older two boys are on vacation already. Squishy has a few more days to go. Next year will be better. All three boys will be attending an academy so they will have the same schedule. I had been trying to get them in there for a long time and they finally got in. Hallelujah! No more public schools.
Mr. Man is on his last day of vacation tommorrow. He wants to go back up to the mountains to do some fishing. I however do not. So he'll be going without me and the two boys who also don't want to go. I have other plans.
