a life saver

Life has been great. Christmas was fun, the snow has been lovely, the new year started off fresh, I've been enjoying the company of some good friends, I'm looking forward to some great upcoming adventures, I'm enjoying my new second job... Everything has been smooth, except for a few small details. It turns out that sometimes those "small details" aren't as minute as they seem.

The sock monster has finally conquered my drawer. The past few weeks I have been wearing mis-matched socks, or no socks at all. (Or shhh....sometimes I've warn the same socks for 3 days in a row!) I went to the liquor store the other day and I was in the checkout line and realized I had misplaced my driver's licence. That jumbled those plans! (That problem is solved, but it took a few days.) I have been having trouble sleeping lately. Even if I give myself 8-10 hours to sleep, I wake up at about 2:30 feeling restless. And the other day the numbers on my cell phone fell off and I couldn't find them. I was stressed out all day because I couldn't use my phone. Yes...all of these small details have been adding up to chaos! Chaos I tell you!!!

I have a pair of black tights that I've been wearing a lot lately. Since I've run out of black socks, the black tights are a nice alternative. They have also been a life saver on two accounts now and I'm thinking that after I retire them I may have to keep them for good luck!

1)The first life saving account was when I got that flat tire last week. It was 3 degrees outside and I was wearing jeans. That day I was trying to find some black socks but I gave up and wore the tights instead. They were excellent for a thermal layer when I was lying on the freezing pavement fixing my car.

2)And yesterday I was having a rushed morning so I pulled on those black tights and I wore a pair of black dress pants with a nice sweater. I was sitting in a department meeting yesterday and I looked down to notice a HUGE 4 inch long hole on the seam of my pants, yes...in the most inappropriate place! What the heck?!!! Thank goodness for black tights! The whole was hard to notice and I was able to make it through the rest of the day without being embarrassed.

This is the story of my life as of late.
