Even Better Than The Real Thing

Sorry Tom Petty, but Lucy's sporting a brand new look.

Divided Sleep

Anyone who has kids may also experience divided sleep where you sleep, get up, and then sleep some more. According to Wikipedia, it wasn't unusual before the industrialization of society--a night's sleep would be divided by one or more periods of wakefulness, particularly in winter. I know that while breastfeeding infants, I'd have to stay in bed for 12 hours in order to get 8 hours of sleep.

And now one of my favorite things to do when I'm home alone with the kids in the evenings is to go to sleep when they do, wake up a couple of hours later, and then watch TV or surf the Internet. This way I can avoid the dreaded bedtime (oh, how I hate putting those little buggers to bed--if only yelling made them sleepy!) *and* get to watch trash TV.

Why trash TV? Why not be productive or creative? Well, this period of wakefulness is often only semi-conscious (again, according to Wikipedia--oh, Wikipedia, what did we do before you?), I have no problem spending a few hours mindlessly entertaining myself.

Fashion Find

I was out and about, and while walking by the Junior League secondhand store I noticed that they were having a huge sale. $5 for everything in one room--they were hoping to unload a bunch of stuff before they had to do inventory. So I decided to take a look, and found the fashion find of the year.

I liked the colors, and the skirt is pieced together fabrics. Someone else was eyeing it, so I grabbed it and decided to take a chance. Turns out it's a $300 or $400 dress from last fall.

Now, I may not wear it with those boots, or those belts, or that jacket, but I'll be wearing it this fall!
