NEVER NEVER THAT woman

I always promised myself that I would NEVER be THAT WOMAN who goes out in public looking a mess just "because she is a mother".  I swore I would never be her.

And then, yesterday when I walked in from pretty much the longest and worst day ever and looked in my mirror, I realized that somewhere, out in the world of Richmond VA, is a pregnant woman who saw me and thought, "I will NEVER be THAT WOMAN who goes out in public looking a mess...."

Yes, yesterday I was that woman.

ew.  Today is a NEW DAY.  I think I'll go get dressed.  In a running skirt.  Because frankly, anyone looks good in one, and I want to look nice today after yesterdays disastrousness.  (whew, spell check confirms that's a word).
