I know this this just a bad day & I’ll feel better tomorrow.
But today I’m wearing my baggy “Auburn Tigers” tee & jeans that are at least two sizes too big for me. The waist hangs on my hipbones. The extra clothing is a buffer between me and the world. Dressed this way, I can fade into the background and nobody will judge me. I haven’t worn these clothes for a very long time, but today I need them.
I forced myself to clean up, put on sunscreen, mascara & lipstick, then pulled my hair back in a pony tail and now I’m ready to head out to take sis shopping.
It always makes me happy to make HER happy, and even though she’s in a wheelchair now, making her happy is as simple as taking her out for a cheeseburger and french fries. 16 months ago
