Outift #18 and Day 1

Hubby left for work on Sunday just before midnight with a word of warning: he might not make it back in the morning to help me with Sofia. This means I have to get myself and Sofia ready all by myself, and drive her to the dayhome before I drive myself to work. And did I mention that there's still a lot on snow on the ground? I know this is not a unique situation to most moms, but it is to me. We normally share the morning load so that both of us can get to work at a reasonable time.

Fast forward to this morning. The alarm clock didn't work, or did it? I woke up and realized it was 7:45AM!! I was horrified!! I uttered some expletives at myself which for obvious reasons, are better left unmentioned here. But there was no time for too much of that. In panic mode, I woke up my little darling who refused to get up and took as much time as she could get away with. I fed her, and that took forever. I changed her and she insisted on doing it herself, which also took forever. By the time I got to me, I had 15 minutes left to shower, brush my teeth, fix my hair and get dressed. Of course, it would have taken a miracle to accomplish such feat. The fact that I'm slow in the mornings didn't help either. Anyhow, as I got to work 30 minutes late, I realized that I probably wouldn't have been so late if I had planned my wardrobe ahead of time. Which takes me back to Kendi's 30 for 30 Remix. As you know, I've been humming and aahing over this last week. But it looks like it's taken on a different meaning for me now. It might actually help me save my job lol...

So tonight, I'm going to go through my closet and get organized. Pick my 30 pieces and think of ways to mix and match them for the next 30 days. I still can't guarantee the no shoppping part though. That requires a more intense intervention than losing a job! Hahaha... But with planned outfits for the next 30 days, I'll be a better person to my hubby and my little girl, most especially in the mornings. Even just for that reason, I think it will be worth it, don't you think?


  1. What a fright! I hate that rushed feeling and I can't imaging having to get a daughter ready at the same time!
    The 30 for 30 really does help with the planning though, so maybe it will be a great thing for you!
