You guys, I am so lost without my camera. I finally found some skirts! I was at WalMart with the hubs and Bucket and while they were in the guy area (fishing, guns, and bait, yummmm) I meandered over the clothing area. I am not a snob and will totally wear WalMart clothes, but lately, their plus size offerings have consisted of mom jeans and poorly cut tees. So nooo thank you. But I found...SKIRTS! ON SALE YO. And I have no pictures but I assure you, they are kind of cute. They are midi length, patterned skirts, with a slip built in. And guys...$11 each! I wore one today to church and was able to crawl on the ground in the kindergarten room without flashing anyone; and that, my friends, is the definition of a good day. It is a size 16 (I normally wear a 18/20) but it does have an elastic waist. It also has a black stretchy panel around the top (sort of looks like a belt, but it's not maternity, I did check!) so I'm thinking I may be able to use it as maternity wear, should that ever happen. Until then, my top covered it. The one I wore today is white, purple, aqua, and navy geometric shapes. I wore it with an aqua wrap top and a white tank. Don't worry, I was so pleased with my look that I am certain I'll be duplicating the look eventually.
The two other skirts are a brown and tan floral, and another geometric pattern, this time with red, olive green and brown as the colors. I can really see myself wearing these EVERY.SINGLE.DAY in the summer with one of my many tanks and a pair of flip flops. In fact, I may go back and grab two more; there were other colors but I only had $40 on me and so I stuck with the three I liked best.
I just spent 30 minutes going on the WalMart website, plus online to find the skirts, and it's like they don't exist! Don't worry, someday you will see them. Mr. R thought they were cute, modest and pretty. They will definitely be a summer staple.
And thank you for the prayers on Friday. When I finally clocked out on Friday, I was in tears and nearly knocked my chair over just to get away from that desk. I am not excited about tomorrow, but I will do my best to make sure my patients' accounts are squared away properly. I may not like my job, but these patients deserve accountability and I am nothing if not professional. Besides; it's only 5 days to the weekend!
