I wear black pants to school approximately 80% of the time, with…something on top…usually a solid-colored shirt, maybe about half the time with a scarf. Most of the rest of the time, it’s a black skirt ditto. For really wild days, I have one brown skirt with a matching cardigan, and I also have a black tank dress that I wear with an overshirt, a jacket, or a cardigan.
And that’s about it. Also, some of these clothes are a little too big on me now, which is a fine problem to have when one has been trying to lose weight, but there are some key items that really should fall out of the rotation.
If I could add one item to my wardrobe right now, it would be a pair of colored pants that I could wear with a black or neutral top. But pants shopping…I’m going to spend some of my precious weekend time pants shopping?
Well, maybe. And what else will I be doing today?
- Writing goals for the week and group update
- FA paperwork for the Snork Maiden’s summer program application
- Some form of exercise
- Grocery/Target (which is where the pants shopping might happen)
- Prep for NLNRU class
- Prep for two student meetings
- Dinner and the Oscars (or some part thereof) at my mom’s
That last one means I have about eight hours for all the other stuff–which is a reasonable amount of time and can also include some breaks, including a nice nap, if I’m feeling so inclined. I have SA prep and grading to do, but I think the list above is enough for now. (NLNRU definitely looms over my weekends more now that I’m teaching on Monday nights, and SA is more likely to get back-burnered.)
