My eldest daughter has her grade eight graduation dinner/dance tomorrow night. For part of the celebration my husband and I have to join her for a family picture and dinner.
No, she's at a table with her friends and we're at another table with other parents. We're not being totally intrusive but we have been asked to be there. My husband and I will leave before the dancing starts.
It occurred to me this morning that I need something to wear.
Yep, after spending weeks finding my daughter the perfect outfit I forgot about me.
I just fixed that.
I went to one of my favorite stores, tried on three dresses and bought the third. I was in and out in less than twenty minutes.
I then went next door and in less than five minutes bought myself some new shoes. I already have a small clutch purse and some nice jewelry.
It took me about half an hour to pull everything together. To get my daughter pulled together took me about three weeks.
It's amazing what you can get done when you don't have a lot of time.
