I've really enjoyed seeing colored tights on other bloggers but was wary if I could pull off the look. I see mostly younger women in the blog world wearing them and not mom's. But thanks to Laura from http://theblogofworldlydelights.blogspot.com/ who gave me a suggestion of getting some colored tights, I decided to try it and really like the result. I'm tired of the standard black and as the temps drop I definitely want something to keep me toasty warm. You can't see it but the skirt has maroon polka dots in it so I thought I'd go with maroon tights too. I am loving my Dansko sandals with the tights! and the sandals feel like they were custom made for my feet. I will be searching out and buying more Dansko because they feel so wonderful. The brown sweater with the light pink bow I've had forever. I thrifted it ages ago and never really wore it that much but as I was once again cleaning my closet I ran across it and thought why don't I ever wear you? so I did. I decided to wear two belts. One is yellow and the other animal print. I realize that I have a very squarish body as far as my waist goes because I don't really have a defined one. Overall I felt comfortable all day for my "to do" list was a long one.
One of the things (priority) was to talk to an OSU financial adviser with my son. He has gotten himself into a mess when he decided to take a year off school (famous last words!) I mean you can't just take a year off when you have scholarships and grants etc...some grants become default and thus require payback whereas if he would have kept on keeping on they would not be required to be paid back. Also when you get scholarship money besides a grade requirement there are other conditions!!
On my sons Birthday I wrote him a letter and in that letter I said something to the effect of " I have come to realize Alexander that what I dream for you may not be your dreams; and that's alright!" That statement is still true but I wish you could fast forward in life about 10yrs and then magically go back to where you decided to change the course of your life.
So now we are considering charging him rent,phone,food,car insurance,laundry service, utilities etc..etc...oh and the cost of all this damn dog food!
The reason I am so petty about the dog food is because this is what he has decided to do on a full time basis. TRAIN DOGS! which you have to build clientele and it's commission. I was irritated and told him he's the only person I know that can get a job and still not get paid! this is after a year of US telling him "son, you need to get a job to help pay for school"
He wants to own his own business training dogs, buy our house and built outside barn with heated stales on the property. All that is wonderful!
But a Degree and then business owner would be BETTER!
What do you think? are we being to rough on the kid or not tough enough?
