…just under the wire :) Today I’m thankful for:
- My Making It Big order (BOGO, on clearance) arriving and all four items fit.
- I’m taking a long weekend just because I feel like it ;)
- Being able to lift some boxes today a lot easier than a few months ago.
- Going out to the French place for a Bastille Day special on Tuesday.
- New bras that fit.
Speaking of Tuesday: I went with a friend who wears skirts much more often than I. As it was a “special event” I wore a red straight skirt, black “Marilyn” top, and pantyhose. I do not often wear pantyhose, because my body is hard to fit. I have hose which is supposed to be designed for someone up to 6′ and over 400lbs, but I do not think the manufacturer really thought someone would both weigh 400lbs and have a 30″ inseam. I think it was assumed most women would have a 30″ inseam or weigh 400lbs. But I’ve been dealing with an allergic rash on my calf and the hose would cover it, so I did.
The hose sort of fit, in that it did go on — all the way up to my waist — without going up to my boobs. But it only sort of fit, because the crotch of the hose was a few inches below my underwear. At least, until I put on…*gasp*…my panty girdle. Yes, I have a Flexees 10x panty girdle to hold up my pantyhose.
But the hose did cover the rash. We both looked good. I ate lamb chops with fava beans and lovely French sauvignon blanc ;)
