Case in point: the work dress I am wearing today has had a hole in the bum patched. You can't see it and it's such a pretty dress...but basically my entire work wardrobe is shabby. I don't think I have bought a single new piece in 2014 and I didn't really bother in 2013 either. So profeshunal. The bum on my work pants looks a little saggy, my cardigans are a bit frayed at the cuffs, my lint roller has been getting a work out, I won't lift my arms wearing my one white collared court shirt...you get the picture.
Mind you, I'm still spending through the nose on cat food. And me-food. I'm not as spending averse as I'd probably like you to think. We're going to Wellington for a weekend to visit friends in July. And we're being organised about summer this year - a friend is hooking up a bach in Omaha. So, really, I'm just lazy when it comes to professional attire and appearance it seems (OH MY GOD MY ROOTS. Do they still qualify as roots at coming up 2 inches?).
Anyway, August. A week off at home. Here's hoping it will be delightful. Things I could do with that week:
- Properly clean the house. As in actually dust things, up high for example.
- Paint. Lots of things.
- Sand. Lots of things.
- Sit my bum on the couch.
- Prepare the spring garden.
- Go to a west coast beach for the day.
- Buy some new work clothes, for crying out loud.
