Murdo Girl…Starting the new year

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? I never do because I’m not capable of making significant changes to my chaotic life. I realized that I’m the kind of person who is most comfortable in a crisis. My mother told me if I had a momentary lapse in crises, I created one. Well, I have started the year in over my head, so I should be very comfortable.

I know it would help me a lot to make lists, but I can never find my list which stresses me out! I have to change passwords countless times because I don’t have the patience to write them down and I’m sure I will remember them, but I don’t. I’m selling a really great skincare product (Rodan + Fields). I have a few good ideas that should be fun, so I can do follow up on some of those.

Yes…I will do some things in between my colonoscopy, trip to the dentist, (I need X-rays this time), and to the dermatologist to have a spot on my forehead removed. I also need a mammogram. I quit the bone density tests, but my doctor scheduled me for an appointment with a cardiologist because my EKG looked funny. “God, you made too many doctors.”

Forget all of that, I’m going to have some fun, and Lav will be a big part of the upcoming events. I just have to wait to be invited to them…

meanwhile…I went shopping for a new Kitty Reynolds like dress. Kitty is the lady who made the formal I wore when I was in my very first parade 59 years ago. I wore my first tinfoil crown, too, and rode in a horse-pulled red wagon. We went up and down all the streets in Murdo that were south of highway 16.

I found this dress today…

It’s lopsided because the elastic is all stretched out in that one sleeve, plus it was too small. Knowing I had $6.50 invested in the thing, I ripped one tucking seam out. I might have to rip the one out on the other side, too. (It would have been $8.00 without the senior discount.) I guess it’s good I have a little extra time.

It’ll look fine on television. I’ll just wear one high-heel, or I could walk with a limp.

I feel kind of bad. Kitty would not be proud of this dress.

Times have changed, Kitty. It’s a throw-away world now. It’ll be fine and we’ll have fun. I wonder how many people will be there for the award show? I know you’ll all come.

    Best wishes on the awards show MG! I can send you some of my red duct tape so you can fix your dress. Easy as pie and no one will even notice. I promise. You can trust me…

      It will probably cost more than the dress and tinfoil put together, but it sure beats threading a needle 07!

      Yes, that is Greg. Everyone had to wear red, white and blue. Except for the Queen who wore red and tinfoil.
