Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

The Changing Of The Guards

You've heard of that right? At Buckingham Palace, I think.

Well, today I had The Changing Of The Jeans.

Not fun. I hate this time of year; I love this time of year; I loathe this time of year; I welcome this time of year; I dread this time of year; It is here.

Put the t-shirts away, and the shorts and capris.
Sadness arrives like a denim pair
that no longer fits
even tho it has stretch fabric and
should give way
to the spreading thighs
of summer cookouts,
one-too-many margaritas
and the never-ending quest
for chocolate
during that time.

The jeans are here.

kudos! that was great!
in San Francisco, we're pretty much destined to pants year round... it's when I go on vacation that becomes so depressing.
Nothing like being stoked on a vacation, only to put on your sassy vacation outfit and look like a stuffed sausage.

Oh, tooooo true. I went shopping yesterday for (ugh) winter clothes. Didn't buy a thing. I don't care how much weight I gain or lose, I always look better in summer clothes and they're infinitely more comfortable.

I LOVE to wear sweaters. When I lived in Colorado it would get down to 20 below. I had the perfect excuse to stock up on lots of beautiful sweaters. Now I'm in the desert. It gets cold here, but it's not quite the same.
