#1: The Royal Blue Jacket, Cutting Line Designs "A New Dimension
Don't you LOVE my doggy?!
It looks like I'm crying. Good grief! Could You Tube pick a more awful shot. I am showing you how the tab at the shoulder unbuttons. I'm really happy with it, lol.
NOTE: I picked a terrible place to do this video. The camera is focusing on those red baskets on the quilt, and you can't even tell there are DAISIES all over my blouse. You can see them below.
#3: The Sure-fit Designs Maxi Dress
And I DO hope my head isn't cut off in the whole thing. At least, the dress shows. Another lovely pose chosen by You Tube. I look like a wind-up doll!
Here are a few stills of this dress. I really like it. I am making jewelry now that makes it look NOT dressy. I don't like "dressy" on me. I figure some clunky colored beads will tone it down. Either that or it will look like I am really bad at making jewelry!
Sure didn't do a very good job of that did I?
The earrings look fancy, but they are NOT. They are just plastic beads.
I may try a belt with this. I doubt it will look good, however, as it will fall into the cavern above my big belly and emphasize the part I'm trying to cover up.
You should have seen me when I was young. Sometime I'm going to dig out a picture. I USED to have a waist! I remember working out at the gym and how embarrassed I would be that someone might SEE when the girl measured my waist and it was 25 inches. For some INSANE reason, I thought it was supposed to be 18 inches. I would be really excited if I could get it down to 32 inches right now so I could be 42 - 32 - 41.
I better get back on my DESM diet.
ACTUALLY, that would only make my bust and hips smaller, and the loss of inches on my waist wouldn't even show.
I'm going to work tomorrow. I was there on Monday and smelled something horrible in the kitchen next to my office. The aroma was drifting into my space, and it was gagful!
I asked the two darling new girls to come SMELL for me. They did. We got near the refrigerator which is only used by me. I opened it to see if something croaked and rotted inside. No! It was empty.
THEN -- UNFORTUNATELY -- I noticed the corner of what I thought was a piece of paper sticking out under the frig behind the open door. I stuck the toe of my flip flop on it and pulled it out.
I could not have been more SHOCKED if I had been struck by lightning!!! Ask the new girls. One of them has scratches on her arm, and I probably scared the other one nearly to death when I jumped up in the air -- screamed -- and ran out of the room!
The "paper" was a flat sticky trap someone had slid under the frig and it had a dead mouse stuck on it.
GROSS - GROSS - GROSS!
My scream brought everyone else into the room. I'm sure they thought I was the biggest goof ever. Tim came in and bravely walked over and picked the thing up and removed it.
Anyway, I will be much happier to be there tomorrow -- mouse free and rotten smell free.
