"Running just annoys them."

Sometimes I look at my blog and I think, wow...it's been that long since I blogged?  and then i think wow, nothing has happened at all that anyone would want to blog about, or read about.  Working part-time is a full time job.  seriously.  I must have a serious time management problem because I get nothing done.  The house just barely runs with enough clean dishes and laundry and groceries.  The dogs get walked at what we would consider a minimum at only 1 to 1.5 hours a day.

What do I have to talk about?  Recently we started watching White Collar and I decided I love the casting department for that show.  All of the women are beautiful and round and while they're not fat by any normal standard...they aren't skinny with bones sticking out hither and thither.  It's pretty awesome to see curvy sexy women on tv who aren't starving themselves.

I've been trying to make the most of my body the way it is and I've been dressing completely differently.  I've been wearing a lot of dresses and skirts and seriously I never knew how easy it was to wear dresses.
I have always been weary of wearing dresses and skirts and now that I am an adult I have no idea why.  Lately it's been all dresses and boots and it must work for me because I spend half my time tallying up admiring gazes.  Good for the self esteem.

Well I'm glad you blogged to day Amy. Having only ever worn a dress on my wedding day and perhaps 2-3 other special occasions, I know where you're coming from, but you're right, a change in clothes can have quite an effect on how you feel and how people react to you. You've inspired this trouser wearing slimmer to put on her mascara, stick her ample bosom out and head out into the world. Thanks and keep blogging! xx

glad you're mascara inspired!

Oh gawd a "teacher dress" is like my "I'm late for work again and don't have time to pull a top AND a bottom" standby.

I too have come to LOVE curvy celebrities. I didn't know that about White Collar, I'll have to check it out.

As for fostering, the first one was excruciating to give up. This guy. I was heartbroken and cried for 3 days. After him, I never attached that strongly again.

maybe it's just the first season but it's awesome to see so many natural beauties.

that's my worry. I want to foster but I think I'm too much of a softie.

You know that "next" button at the top of blogspot blogs? Well, I hit that thing for the 1st time in a long time today and stumbled on your blog! Your description for your blog cracked me up so much I about fell out of my chair! Have a Great Holiday Weekend!

One of the good things about working, aside from that paycheck thing, is that it provides a marvelous excuse... er, I meant reason for not managing to get all the chores done in a timely fashion.

it is a kick ass excuse for not getting anything done.
