To be honest with you, clothes just don't mean as much to me as they did two years ago, even a year ago. I find it trivial and an expensive habit. I'm about to turn 42 and I want financial freedom and good health (I'm relying more and more on my bifocals as of late and my knees snap something fierce going upstairs). I want my weekends to be filled with sleep, comfort, and the occasional dinner out, etc. I want a peaceful life without having to worry about how much I've saved and what I still have to pay off. Does that make sense? Maybe it's my age, maybe it's seeing others around me getting older and having harder times finding employment. I do what I can to stay marketable. I learn new skills and try to stay abreast of technology. In fact, I'm going to an online help conference in San Diego in April. I can't wait. I love California. If it weren't so expensive to live there and my family was located there, I'd move in a heartbeat. Who wouldn't? Perfect weather and lovely scenery.
So I apologize for the lack of outfit posts. I think once the holidays are over, I'll be able to slow down on the room renovations, rest a bit more, and focus a little more on my appearance. I'm having to take pictures when I get home now. Once Daylight Savings time ended and it started getting darker earlier, traffic increased and it was taking me an hour and a half to get home. Not good. So I switched my hours and I now wake at 5:30am to be at work by 7:30. I leave at 4 and am usually home by 5. It's nice to not have to drive in the dark. Again - the whole faulty eye thing kicking in.
