Yeah. That's how I spent the last half of the evening. Obviously she wasn't dressed like that, but still. I'll be thirty two years old next month. I thought I was way past the point where I let these types of girls make me feel bad about myself. I hate that I let it bother me, but sitting behind her I felt like a donkey. Will I ever be able to stand in the same room with a girl like this without feeling like the dowdiest of troglodytes? Don't answer that. Sigh.
The rest of the week was filled with all of the usual things that seem to take up so much of my time. Worries about school, a PTA meeting, trips to the park and the library, and so on and so forth. All those things that fill my days that don't seem important yet must be because I continue to do them day in and day out.
Before I close out this update I wanted to share a few things with you. My lovely friend Cyndy is an amazing woman. She's a mom, she works at the hospital, and in her 'spare' time she rescues and fosters dachshunds. She gets no money for it, she and her family do it because they love animals. Her rescue group has a new blog to showcase some of the dogs and basically get the word out. Please check it out.
There are a few other new links to the right as well, including two for bloggers over at The Huffington Post, Eve Ensler and Erica Jong. In recent days they have both posted amazing pieces that deserve a few moments of your time. (Thanks to my friend Melissa for giving me the heads up about these.)
I'm thinking of taking a few days off from my blog. It has become a bit of an addiction lately and I just need a break. A few mental health days. I'll still be reading your blogs, just don't expect anything new from me until around the middle of the week at the earliest. I'm giving myself permission to do very little.
