|You missed one!|
I know I posted a picture of me sewing at the dining room table a few blogs ago, so please don't think I am getting redundant. The photo below is a sad reminder to me of just how mean winter can be to a gal who isn't used to having to make sacrifices. I know "other people" have it worse. You must realize that I was born an Egyptian princess in another lifetime and I still have those lingering past life memories! I was totally pampered and spoiled as a child. I never had to sacrifice. I got what I wanted when I wanted it and that was that! I'm not Cinderella! I am a wicked step-sister! Heck, if I lost a button on a coat at any other time in my life, I would just throw out the garment and buy a new one! My clothes, by choice, mostly come from resale shops or thrift stores in the first place...so what gives? Do I need to cut MORE corners? And that hideous pink bathrobe! This is really harsh...for me. Yes, I WILL have some cheese with that whine. Mmmmm...wine...chilled Chardonnay, please!
|I love this coat! For this coat I'll sew on a button!|
And look at my HAIR! It's a FRIGHT WIG in a BUN! Instead of going to my hairdresser, I had to color it myself and it turned REDDISH! I now have to do it all over again and bleach it back to white. Or maybe I'll just wait a week and it will turn completely white on its own! ! And my fingernails! I have to put on CLEAR polish because I can't get a manicure or go in for a polish change like I used to do! Thank God I never got Botox or I'd be in big trouble. Watching my face revert back to wrinkles! I AM gifted with great skin, so that's a plus! But I could use a mini-face lift....I digress...
|ANDY!!! My idol! This is MY kind of hair!|
I have one more week of winter break from school. I have been "on vacation" since December 12TH! We get, like, SIX WEEKS off! I am bored now. I want to go back to class. I have a few more loose ends to tie up this week and then I'll be ready. I am going deaf and I need to see a doctor. I cannot hear very well anymore. My ears always seemed blocked up, like my head is under water. I talk louder and louder, because I can't hear myself anymore! I need to find a public health service where I can get my hearing tested for free and possibly get a free hearing aid. Do they even sell used hearing aids...they give people used eye glasses...why not used hearing aids?
YOU CAN TAKE A HEARING TEST RIGHT NOW!
Don't get me wrong, I am NOT going to wallow in self-pity and stay downtrodden. No way! I'll get out of this mess. I'll find a way to recover from my financial casualties and get through the next three months. I always do. eBay is a good place to unload stuff! It's my job to survive. I do it well. I've done it for years. After all, I AM the Savvy Senior! Peace.
