Life continues

You've probably noticed that I haven't posted much in the past couple of months. Well, my life just isn't that interesting. I don't have any boy drama to be melodramatic about. I don't have friend drama. I don't have cute stories to tell about my children because I don't have children. I'm not especially witty so I can't write a funny/charming post about mirrors and childhood nostalgia. I don't take extraordinary pictures. I don't really have a displayable talent so rather than bore people with the same entries about work and non existent drama there, I don't blog. But there have been a few good things that happened lately. I got a promotion at work. I'm now Team Lead for my ever shrinking mini department and I report directly to the Registrar. I was also called to serve as the Relief Society Secretary in my singles ward. Also pretty cool. But neither are the event that really got me excited and was the impetus for this post. It's a simple event and some may even say shallow but it made me happy. I got dressed this morning and as the number on the scale has continued to drop I decided to try on my favorite pair of jeans the I haven't been able to wear for probably about a year. And they actually fit. I am wearing my favorite pair of jeans from a year ago. Yes. that's my exciting news. Not that I am progressing in my job or that I got an exciting and somewhat frightening call at church. I am currently more exciting about my pants fitting. Sad? Shallow? maybe....but I think the past year I have earned the right to be shallow and excited about this particular moment.

what a fantastic feeling to have your favorite pair of jeans fit. i think it is a perfect thing to be happy about! i will relish in the moment when i can too wear my favorite jeans. for now... i'm just frumpy.

Kelly said...

but you are definitely allowed to be frumpy...you're pregnant. I would relish the fact that it doesn't matter what you look like.

That is not shallow, that is AWESOME! Congratulations!

I completely agree - you're not shallow. After all you've been through medically in the last year or so, you deserve it! Yay, for being able to wear your favorite jeans again!!

Sue said...

I would much much MUCH prefer smaller jeans that fit. I'll trade ya one lame post for a smaller backside. What do ya think?

(But thanks for the nice compliment ;>)

I Don't think it's sad or shallow! I think if it is important to you--it is wonderful and well worth the post :) I would love to catch up--it has been too long! I graduate from massage therapy school in 11 weeks :) Can we go play?!?
