- This week’s handmade theme
I declared today re-do day. As in, after lunch we took naps and when we woke up, we pretended it was morning and started the day completely over. It worked for the most part. Everyone woke up grouchy this morning (probably from the middle of the night wakings compliments of Judah) and the conclusion I’ve come to…? Behind almost every grouchy attitude is a sleep deprived or otherwise tired human being. After a walk to the park and left over strawberry shortcake, we are mostly restored to our cheerful selves.
Lately I’ve been rummaging through my closet and dresser drawers and coming up empty handed. It’s becoming increasingly harder and harder to get dressed and ready for the day. What’s wrong with me? I mean I did take the 30 for 30 challenge. I should be able to pull together an outfit quicker and more efficiently than ever.
While the boys napped, I pulled out all of my clothes and sorted them into three piles: keep, alter and giveaway. A cluttered dresser or messy closet is never easy to get dressed from, but even more difficult when nearly 1/2 of the smorgasbord is in need of button replacements or hemming.
In all honesty though, I haven’t been keeping to a very structured morning routine. Which is also to blame for the frantic mornings and multiple outfit changes. You know, a girl just wants to look as stylish as she feels, right? So, minus the structured routine, I find myself trying to get ready while the boys are creating little tornados around me. Duh Jodi!
I think I’ve remedied the problem though so here’s hoping I keep my closet organized and my early morning alarm doesn’t fail me.
*Since I have yet to find shorts that actually fit me, today’s outfit is what I call my “staple outfit” or “go-to outfit” or whatever phase means “easy and not too bad on the eyes”.*
