What a great day it was today. The forecast was rainy and 50's. The reality was sunny and mid 70s. I don't know what the hell happened, but it was amazingly beautiful today. I think the crap weather has been pushed off until tomorrow. I had the windows open all day, the front door was open so the cats could go out on the porch. Just amazing. On top of that, I cleaned the house (it really needed it... did nothing to it last weekend), Ken finally picked up his office..... And then things changed. LOL.
I'm going to a wedding next month and I really don't have anything to wear. I could wear my suit, but I bought that a year and a half ago and I now look like David Byrne in it. Only David Byrne's suit fit him better. So, Ken dragged me out this afternoon to go suit shopping. I told him I really didn't want another suit. I don't ever have an occasion to wear it and I felt it would be a waste. We compromised and ended up just buying a coat. This way I'll have something and can always just grab a pair of appropriate-to-the-occasion pants to go with it. I HATE shopping for clothes like this. Really, really hate it. I don't know where my aversion first started. I've had it as long as I can remember. I'm sure it has a lot to do with my general body shape. I have a tall torso, so I need to buy tall clothes. And I've always had problems finding them. Luckily I now have a bunch of stores I can try and usually find something. I realized half way through the shopping adventure that I was copping an attitude and I couldn't pull myself out of it. Once the new clothes were purchased, I apologized to Ken for my pissyness. He asked me why do I still get like this and I told him that whenever we go shopping like this, most times it ends in disappointment for me. He called me out on that, as he should have. This trip was a complete success, thanks to him. I'm lucky to have him. I really don't know of anyone else who could put up with my bullshit like he does. And what's funny is he says the exact same thing about me.
