Today just felt off for me. Most of it was fine but it was just one of those days I guess. I was running late for everything because I kept running into clients and other random people I know and everyone was very chatty and I too am quite the little yapper. I also started the work day by leaving my phone at home, which required me to waste time retrieving it. Ugh. The highlight of my day was meeting of with Michael and Wes to eat our packed lunches overlooking the fountain at Love Park. We all packed lunches and we all managed to pack some variation of fake turkey sandwiches. After enjoying the lovely weather I started working and worked and worked and worked. For some reason I had a lot more jobs than usual today, 8 dog jobs and one cat. That used to be a normal schedule for me but now it means I'm busy, damn economy.
I finally got home and hung out with Michael for a bit before he left for his Tuesday night skateboarding boy time. I spent my night cleaning and watching Law & Order, not too shabby. I have much more cleaning to do to get this house in shape but it will have to wait since I need to get cracking on my costume. My second photo features some of the fabric I bought yesterday. Flea was all about it. I forgot how much he loves fake fur. I said I would make him a bed from my old squirrel costume fur but I never did. I think this year I'm going to have to come through for him, it's just too cute.
Today's dress is what I like to refer to as a Sookie Stackhouse dress because it's a similar style to a lot of the wardrobe choices on True Blood, which makes me like it even more. Since it is still Fall and not actually suitable weather for a sundress I paired it with tights and a cardigan. I own green shoes so I couldn't resist pairing them with the dress. Even though someone asked if I was pregnant (I'm chalking it up to just eating lunch, bad posture, a babydoll style stress and ok fifteen extra pounds on my frame than the last time I saw the accusing party, whatevs) I would still wear the dress again instead of burning it. It is definitely a bit crazy in the boob department so a cardigan is imperative unless I lose five pounds, I have at least forty-seven days until I can wear it again anyway.
