"Suit's" me just fine!

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

I got another pleasant suprise this morning! I may have a job interview tomorrow, so I went to take my suit in to the cleaners. I had just worn it for Rick's funeral on Friday and noticed it was a little big, so I asked if the pants could be taken in a couple inches. The woman at the counter asked if I would like to see the seamstress, and when I said I would, took me to the back.

When we got to the back to see the seamstress, I reinterated what I had told the lady at the counter as I was holding up the pants. She looked at me with a puzzled look which I took to mean that she would not be able to take them in. She then said it looked like they needed to be taken in a good 5 or 6 inches (not 1 or 2), and verified this by measuring both me and the pants!

After the week I had last week, this was welcome news to say the least.

Football Mom

You know, there are things that seem to go out of their way to trip you up when you're trying to make a change for the better in your life, and then there are things that set your resolve deeper than a Mississippi chigger. Football Mom helped me out today with an unsucessful "flex"

"Football Mom" is one of these people who has her fingers in everyone's pie and really seems to relish it. She's the Football Mom who works very hard and usually does a very good job keeping the program rolling. Without people like her, the season would be much longer and much more disorganized and usually, you'd appreciate all her efforts. This Football Mom however, needs to relax a little.
