Of course everyone is familiar with the good news/bad news phrase. Well, the good news is: we went to my brother in law's to spend Christmas day with him and his family (they're great and we always have a fun time!). Now for the "bad" news: because I wear a uniform for work and wear mostly either workout clothes or casual, I went to my closet to pick out one of my dressier, nicer clothes, and.....................(GASP!!) NOTHING fit me! They are all too BIG!! Oh no, I said! Here it is, Christmas day, no stores were open, I couldn't make a quick emergency trip to purchase any clothes! So...............here's what I had to do; I decided on a half-way decent pair of jeans that DO fit, put on the "smallest" blouse, took my belt to my husband for him to put new holes where it comfortably fit my waist, and cut off the remaining part of that belt so it wouldn't look obvious. We were laughing the whole time, commenting that we thought that things like this happened either in cartoons or sit-coms.
I received a few gift cards, so............needless to say, I will be replacing some of my wardrobe and donating the other clothes to a thrift store.
I hope everyone had a nice holiday, which ever one was celebrated! Well, now I'm off and running to go shopping for my New Year's outfit.................
