Really?? A band at my hips? Really?

Went shopping for summer tops.   It's hot today, my company is tightening up the dress code and I need new clothes! 

So what do I find..lots of tops with a band at the bottom...why, who, what?????   Why would I accentuate a part of my anatomy that needs no attention.    It's pretty much all Kohl's had..all Lane Bryant had...finally I went to Dress Barn...and SCORE...lots of cute tops..

I spent more than I needed but it will get me through the summer.

On another note..my college friends are not faring so well this summer.   I discovered my friend Dave passed away from a brain anerurysm in 2006.   So I emailed his old roommate Eric.  But I didn't hear back.  I just found out in February, he got a staph infection and his leg amputated.  While recovering he suffered congestive heart failure.   He survived and is recovering but holy crap.   

So I'm resolved to start taking better care of myself.  I'm not ready to give this life up yet.   Wish me luck.   And life is too short to wear shirts with bands at the bottom.

Hey!
That top is a very cool color but it would be better if it didn't have that band because i don't know anyone wearing it won't look pregnant. It would be so much better if it just hung loose and flowy on the bottom.

i just hate shopping for clothes. i wish we had to wear uniforms to work. What i love most about summer is pretty much wearing the same thing every day when i'm off work. I think i love flyfishing most because you don't even have to wash your hair.

We're too young to have bad things happen to our friends. It's bad enough getting to this age and having bad things happen to our friend's parents.

I love that your daughter is working with an 83 year old vet. Not that i want to be working until i am that old, but you know, it makes sense that you might just be able to work that long if you worked with animals instead of people.

That's wonderful that she is going to be a vet. You should be a proud mama!

There are too many weird responses to your blog this time...not you, jo.

Sorry about your friends...that does suck, I know. And makes us feel old. And vulnerable.

We can't help old, but we don't have to feel vulnerable.

Take care of you!

Oooh -- forgot to add...those banded tops don't look good on anybody, but I especially don't get why they are so prevalent in my size. There is no apt description of what I look like in one...but it ain't purty!!
