|Somebody needs lipstick...yikes.|
I took my daughter to see CATS last night.
We had a magical evening and she got her face painted and...WOW.
The last time I had seen this was in Los Angeles almost 20 years ago with my friend Gordon. It was fun to see it through her eyes and watch the wonder. We sang the whole way home!
I wore this outfit which (to me) has a very Ralph Lauren feel to it. And it just made me feel festive!
Here is the rest of the story about this outfit....and why I still have it on right now.
We got home around 11 pm. and it looked like a snowstorm hit the inside of my house. Spouse and sons are oblivious to this disaster that the sheetrock team has left behind. I tried to ignore it. Really I did. What had Spouse and boys been doing all evening? Looking up conspiracy theories on Paul McCartney of the Beatles!!!! What the heck????? sorry, I'm feeline a little catty.
I got everyone to bed, went back down to the kitchen area and.....I just couldn't go to bed knowing that dust was everywhere and probably mating and creating even more little dust. So I start sweeping, this mostly stirs it up. I Swiffer it...and it makes it kind of muddy. Back to the sweeping and dusting and then more Swiffering. Then I see a note that the painters are coming so I need to take everything off the top of all the cupboards. I look up and see about 100 roosters* staring down at me. They are laughing. A while later, they are relocated to new homes in lovely boxes. They are egg boxes so I knew they would be happy.
Do you ever start something and then just keep going like your body is on auto-pilot and there is no stopping? At some point (around 3:30 am) I sat down for a minute on the couch and that is where I woke up at 5:45 am. My daughter is standing there staring at me -still in the clothes from last night- and says
"So, you want new pajama's for Christmas? Is that what you are saying?"
Then it was up and going and getting everyone ready and driving them to school. Back to the house only to be greeted by the sheetrock team who is there to do THE 2nd COAT!!! So glad I stayed up all night cleaning up what they did the day before.
At this point I grab my coat and purse and head to work. When I walked in Joy says "I love your outfit!"
Only then does it hit me that I have come to work in the same clothes, hair and makeup that I slept in and went to Cats in, and Swiffered in. LOL
Please tell me I am NOT the only one who has ever done this????? Please!
We are in a crunch since my Mother-in law is moving in within a week. She has Alzheimer's so this will be a new and interesting adventure in life. And I am all about adventure.
