Starting to Catch Up With Me

This getting up at 4:00 business. I like some alone time, but I also like sleep, I’m not gonna lie.

I’m wearing fleece-lined tights. I’ve never had them, before. I hope I’m not sweltering all day.

I’m sure people are puzzled by my insistence on overdressing. But the thing is, it’s actually cooler than pants. And all of my skirts are actually shorts.

I always have dressed up. Even in college. Other girls would go to class in their pajamas. Not me.

I don’t know. I just like to. And if I occasionally happen to get it right and look good in the process, well, that’s a bonus.

If I was upstairs I wouldn’t look out of place, so somebody please, hurry up and retire!

Some might say I am hyper focused on my appearance. I don’t disagree, but there are deep, dark reasons for it. If you’ve been paying attention, you know what they are.

And, at the ripe old age of 44, I am unlikely to change, I think. On one hand, I wish I could. On the other, at what point do you admit you’re flawed and just accept yourself for who you are, and hope others will, too?

That’s about all I have time for, my friends. Have a good morning, enjoy your commute, and thank you for reading ❤️
