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!

    Red and green duct tape should be on sale since Christmas is over. Love the dress.
    Did we decide that’s cuz Greg in the old picture wearing the orange shirt?

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