I am sure you all know what it feels like to be forced to do something before you are really ready for it. We have all had that feeling, whether it was the first time dad let go of the bike to see if we could ride without training wheels, or maybe having to take an exam you just don't feel fully prepared for. Well, I had that feeling yesterday.
We moved on a Saturday/ Sunday and then both had to go to work full time, so this move has been really slow. Our living room and kitchen look terrific, but our bedroom and guest bedroom look like disaster areas. The best part is our clothes are either in a pile waiting to be sorted or in bags waiting to be unpacked. It makes finding desired articles of clothing very interesting and sometimes impossible. I have been rummaging through the clothes the night before to find my outfit for the next day but didn't do that Saturday night.
We have church at 9am, so I got up at 7:30, and slowly showered and got my hair and face ready. I had about 10 minutes to find what I wanted to wear and get dressed. Sounds easy, right? WRONG! The skirt was pretty hard to find, and pantyhose were no where to be found. Which is were my intro to this post comes into play...
My legs made their spring debut before I had mentally prepared myself for the trauma. It is always hard for me to go with my legs exposed to the world for the first time after a long, sunless winter. Usually I have to pump myself up for it, or I sit in the sun for a couple days so they have at least a LITTLE color.
Neither of these options were available in such a time crunch...so I just had to grit my teeth and walk out of my apartment with my dry, whiter than white legs. Putting on lotion in the car helped...a little bit. I would like to publicly apologize to everyone in my ward yesterday who was forced to meet the albino twins, and I promise to re-introduce them to the sun before you are exposed to them again!
On a less somber note, I AM ON SPRING BREAK!!!! Hooray!!!! I have been looking forward to this week since Christmas break. I have big plans to do NOTHING... and in between sessions of nothing, of course clean and unpack as to avoid the situation above.
