Hello, I am back.
I have been busy the last few days. Next week I start homeschool with my youngest (3rd grade)and on Thursday of this week, my oldest starts back to school. Holy toledo. They seem to start sooner every year. Next year they will be starting in July. lol. I have also noticed that they seem to need parents to supply office products. This year we were asked for ?copy paper? Dry erase markers for the teachers and lots of other stuff. I think the schools must be feeling the pinch as well. I went clothes shopping with my fifteen year old. No easy task, I tell you. Although it is a bit easier than a few years ago when belly shirts and low riders were in. Now the eighties and all it's hideous acid washed jean loving, plaid shirt wearing, overly zippered fabulosity is back. I am now waiting in silent horror for the quarter back shoulder pads and aqua net super hold hairspray to make their re-appearance. I have an hour glass figure, and quite frankly...the eighties were not my decade. Anything that emphasizes my shoulders, along with baggy pants with PLEATS...not good. I hope by the time I get down to where i want to be, fashion will have progressed to a better decade for the short waisted among us. For those of you who have forgotten here is the new interpretation of the old theme, italy 2008:
As you can see, unless (and even if, as is the unfortunate case in the first picture on the left) you are six foot tall and 120 lbs....nobody can rock skin tight shiny lycra pants. If they can make a super model look porky, what will they do to you.
I rest my case.
Here's to the death of shiny synthetic fabric, high waisted pants, shoulder pads and frontal pleats...onward and upward I say. I walked 3 miles, and ate 1730 calories. I hope everyone had an excellent and lycra free day.
