Before work really seems like the best time to take blog pictures. My eyes are puffy, but my makeup is fresh and those under eye circles are covered! I have the true bedhead hair, which sometimes looks acceptable when I wake up (and other times not so much). There are no people out to ask me what I’m doing (it seems obvious, right? I’m taking pictures of myself…). And, I get to see people do stupid things, like going the wrong way down this one-way street. Or doing the walk of shame (aka, the “morning after” walk home… wearing last night’s not-so-day-appropriate clothes).
Its so hot out during the day that it’s usually still warm in the mornings. (It was warm the morning I took these pictures, so I’m not quite sure why I have goosebumps. Ah well.) My summer go-to outfit has emerged as these shorts with either a button down shirt or a casual tee. Equipment makes my favorite shirts ever, especially their signature shirt. They also make a beautiful collarless blouse that I haven’t been lucky enough to get my hands on. And Alexander Wang makes my favorite tee’s. I’m in love with both their classic tee and their muscle tee (hehe, me in a muscle tee). Any time I find either of these on sale in a classic (aka: drab) color I snatch it up!! Hopefully I come across a good sale soon.
I’ve actually been writing this post over the last three days. I usually come home and do about 30 minutes of something on the blog before I go to bed. But my mind has been slow. Although I do feel like I’ve been a bit more competent at work, it definitely has not gotten any easier. Today we had a family meeting with a patient who was on her last leg health-wise, but had a clear-as-day mind. With family all there, she was able to tell us that she didn’t want to fight anymore. She’ll likely dye in the next few days. I was bawling. Couldn’t help it. I’ve been working with her and her family every day for the past three weeks. They’re such nice people. I must keep myself together!!
Well, on a happy and superficial note, I made my third purchase of the month, which was an awesome deal!! I did a “we will find it” for J. Crew’s super cozy short sleeve sweatshirt. I tried this on earlier and loved it and was waiting for a sale. Well, sale hit! They were priced at $11.99 in store, but were sold out of my size. So I had a lovely sales associate fill out the WWFI thing. Unfortunately, she put in the wrong size. But fortunately, she also put in the incorrect payment info, so I was able to call and get this all sorted out quite easily. This must be the only time when making two mistakes is better than one…
