Unbelievable.

The first unbelievable thing. I had to turn on the heat. It's actually only 46 outside. It will probably heat up to the mid 60's today. But that's danged cold for here. The crazy people will be breaking out the parkas. Last year I only turned on the heat maybe 5 times. We live in a third floor apartment and heat rises, you know?

The second unbelievable thing. I went into school this morning to deliver 27 pounds of Holiday party supplies for my 1st grader. Then I checked in at my kindergartner's class. What does she need help with for the party.... You won't believe this. The party is Thursday. She's gonna write a few phone numbers in my son's planner so I can make calls and figure out the party. She's done nothing! The other teachers have been planning their party since 1972. This totally peeves me off. But if I blow it off, my son's class gets no party. You know?

I did some quick net research and found some good party ideas. But it just jacks up my week. There's no way I will finish a shawl for the holiday shindig at this rate.

The third unbelievable thing. If you lose thirty pounds, last year's party dress will be too big. Ok, maybe that's not unbelievable. But it is annoying. Especially when you have neither the time nor the money to buy a new party dress. Watch this space for my amazing duct tape seamstress skills. Just kidding. Well sort of....

I had a similar dress related dilemma a few years back. An easy fix, in the accessories department, or even at like a Claire's boutique in the mall, they have these claw-like things that attached to part of the dress on either side of your spine (looks good right around the smallest part of your waist) with an elasticy type thing in the middle. It can pull in any extra material and make the dress look more fitted.

And similarly, if you gain 30 lbs. it won't fit either. Just so ya know. ;)

Oh Lord, the teacher's unprepared. Yikes! I wish you good luck with that one.

Yay for you losing weight though, even if it screws up your party dress plans.

Don't you love school parties. I've got mine this afternoon. It was seven degrees last night where I live, so I'm envious of your 60 degree weather.

So what is the fabulous skinny you going to do for the christmas party, no dress, no shawl. I think you need to go shopping. Call it an early christmas present.
