Frump Submission

(Click to see a bigger, better, frumpier picture)

Amen to my cousin, Colleen, for emailing me this fine, fine specimen of frump captured at her son's soccer game. Her immediate concern (as was mine, when I saw the photo) was: Why the heel? Even me, being a huge fan of heels, can see no purpose for them on what can only be described as athletic clogs. Or shall we say athleticlogs?

Now that we've addressed the problem of the rubber molded heel, we can spend a moment on the bubble-gum pink smiley-face socks. When one wears socks of this color, especially with mary jane-style shoes, one wants them to be seen, am I wrong? So this was a conscious choice. This mom said to herself, while donning her slightly cropped boot cut jeans, you know what would be really cute and sporty to wear to the soccer game today? My mary jane athleticlogs with those adorable bright pink happy face socks peeping out, like they're giggling at the world.

Either that, or her feet got cold on the way to the game and she grabbed her 10-year old daughter's socks from the floor of the minivan and threw them on. But I'm betting on the former.

Thank you Colleen!

One REALLY long month

Well, I'm back, if you'll still have me. I think this is the longest I've ever gone without posting. Honestly, I don't know where the last 30 days went. It wasn't one thing, it was everything. In a nutshell, here's what I've been doing since we last met: Working ungodly hours, not cleaning my house, vomiting, mopping up my son's projectile vomit (or, rather, watching my husband mop it up while consoling said vomiter), hanging out in emergency rooms, aging, not sleeping, losing weight at the speed of evolution, traveling, more working, more vomit cleaning, even less sleeping. All of which has meant I have also NOT been blogging. So sad. So sorry. Though maybe I'm kidding myself that it's a loss to anyone besides myself.

Well. The LEAST I can do is come back with a picture for you. Shazam!

There really isn't any one thing to point out, here. Kind of like my last 30 days, it's just a big, bad, whirlwind of ickiness.

More soon!
