you get my sympathy
and my mothers too !! She is a sewer and growing up she always tried to replicate the "cool" clothes I wanted and I never quite took to them the way she hoped I would.

Let's see...I made the hubby a pair of socks (after he begged for months) and "they're awful bulky", made him a scarf "well, I thought it be more like...." then made him another scarf that appears to be perfection and "well, it's a warm winter I really don't need it."
And as for pants size ... good heavens my size changes daily and with the brand and color of pants I buy. Seriously, I have 3 different sizes from NY&Co that all fit the same. Women's sizes are a crock. Go by how wonderful you look in the mirror

My turn!
Good news: The new allergy meds seem to be working better than the old allergy meds

Bad news: I still can't breathe and the new allergy meds make me groggy

Good news: I was able to take a nap while the kids played mostly quietly this afternoon

Bad news: I still have dishes and laundry to do

Good news: I had just enough money to pay all my bills this month so that I will be ahead in another week and a half

Bad news: I had just enough money to pay all my bills this month so I have very little left for the next week and a half. Now I'll have to dip into my "fun money" for groceries on Sunday and will have to make half a tank of gas last for another week and a half

Hilde, I'm with you. Mine are finally growing out too!

I'll have to admit that these are making me laugh. Good to see we all have a sense of humor.
