I've become THAT woman

I was walking into Target....looked down at my feet----I WAS WEARING MY SLIPPERS---MY HOUSESHOES---MY STINKIN HOUSEshoes! I had a totally cute outfit on---probably khaki shorts----THAT MATCHED MY SLIPPERS.......


this picture is REALLY that day---not at target---but those are my slippers. ....i USED to be THAT woman in the high heels---matching every outfit.....and now i go to Target...in my slippers...sigh....so....I realized......

I HAVE BECOME THAT WOMAN---

so i started to notice other things....other women i have become--or have always been----some i totally accept about myself---and kinda like----others i always think i will change---but probably wont. I want to have a clean refrigerator----I dont have elementary kids or primary kids drawing pictures anymore---so i shouldnt have a messy refrigerator....
I want to have UNclutter----if you look close you will see the stuff i pulled off the couch to orchestrate this picture---dont judge me----i will someday be that woman---i get closer and closer every year.
I am the woman with piles...and i know exactly what is in every pile...and there is a reason for every pile....and the pile will disappear...eventually....and the pile will disappear if you call ahead...please call ahead....or dont---it would be a good learning experience for me.


i like sweets (does that come as a big surprise? have you read my blog? I STINKIN REVIEWED HERSHEY KISSES!) anyway...sorry...i do.....i have always----always will---i am the woman with the sugar in her purse....want some?

I want to be the woman who MAKES the sweets---and i do---but not much and not cookies---I hate standing over the oven every 8 minutes.....BUT I AM THE WOMAN with sugar in my purse.....and i always share......and i have a bucket of 100 cookie cutters---because I WILL be THAT grandma---that has cookies.

I have always wanted to be athletic---i love sports--- i want to walk, play volleyball and tennis----had i been an athletic teen---i think i would have continued---but i didnt---and so i dont---but i still want to---lots. i have always loved babies---everyone's babies---i borrowed babies---i got babies-----now my babies are having babies.....there is not an age I dont love ---well....except 6....and 13....but, other than those---i love babies.....of all ages....i am THAT woman....

holding the baby...

feeding it M & M's....

I love to wear my slippers anywhere. In high school I always tried to get away with wearing them to play rehearsals and my mom hated it. Now that I'm a grown up I realize that slippers aren't very supportive shoes :)

I am a pile woman. My organization may not make sense to others, but I consider myself organized :) Even my messes are organized.

I don't make cookies very often - I prefer brownies or cake. But today I'm wanting some no bake cookies :)

You are not allowed to feed my baby M&Ms! For one, I don't consider them valid chocolate ;)

This blog totally describes me, except I haven't worn my slippers to the store, yet, and I wish that I knew what was in all of my piles ;(

Ha! The part about you being that woman who holds babies and feeds them M & M's made me laugh because that IS who you are! I finally accepted that you were going to feed sugar to my babies before they were one because it was not worth ruining our relationship over. Slippers to Target? Psh! You are an outstanding woman!

MICHELLE! never before one---at least i dont remember actually feeding them chocolate before one---well---maybe ice cream---but not m & m's----and even then---I bite them in half to feed them (i bite the m & m---not the baby)

BEST BLOG POST EVER!

...seriously though, your comment "i bite the m&m not the baby" ...laughed out loud at that one :)

I'm afraid I've been sliding head first, feet in the air, down that slippery slope for a while now.

Michelle said...

I'm with Lyric--laughed right out loud when I read that line.

*LOL* I'm horrified that I have a pair of slippers in my closet that look just like that ... thought they were MEANT to be worn outside!
