    I was feeling stressed-out yesterday, from a fall and an ER visit my wife had the previous day. I sought relief by getting Dressed and doing a little shopping, hoping to find a nice blue skirt to go with a top I had purchased several months ago. I failed, but I did find a lovely pale blue dress suit in my size, and with a huge discount. And I found a nice green top which would go with a skirt I had bought several months ago, but never worn. Tha evening, I modeled it for my wife, who said “I like it!” and the color reminded her that tomorrow was St Patrick’s Day. ( I had forgotten; my Irish-American grandpa would be ashamed of me if he knew, God rest his soul).

    I woke up ths morning with an overwhelming need to be Bettylou (residual stress?), so I asked my wife if she would object if I spent the day wearing that skirt and the blouse, which was a perfect match for it. She didn’t, and I did, adding a pair of green tights and a pair of jade earrings for good measure. It was a wonderful day! I made a quick trip to the hardware store, allowing me to “show off” in all my green glory; and I’m thankful for finding just the right blouse at just the right time to celebrate my heritage, as the girl I really am on the inside.

    Hugs,
    Bettylou.

      All my best to you and the Missus, Betty Lou. You are such a doll and deserve all good things. By the way, me thinks you already knew about dressing equals stress relief. ; )

        Thank you for the kind words, Clara. Dressing does make me feel good, and is certainly a stress-reliever…but that was the first time I felt that I just HAD to do it, or I would burst.

        Hugs,
        Bettylou

        Thank you, Alice; no, the fall was actually quite minor, although painful. And because she is on blood thinners, the EMTs wanted her to be seen at the ER.

        Hugs,
        Bettylou

        Thank you, Katey;  I just discovered that Dressing is a wonderful stress-reliever.

        Hugs,

        Grace, dear,

        My wife has good days and not-so-good days, but is feeling much better for now; thank you for caring.   And the Pink Fog was so thick yesterday that I actually forgot to remove my makeup before I went to bed last night; had to take care of it very early this morning.

        Now, if I could just get lucky finding a nice ’20s dress in size 12US……. Sigh.

        Hugs,

        Bettylou

          BettyLou sweetheart…

          Size 12 US equates to a size 14 NZ…

          How much do you want to spend? Colour? Drop waist? Art Deco you said?

          A quick search through our country’s market site called Trade Me and came up with one in red, layered, drop ‘v’ neck… for $60.00 nz ($28.00 us)!

          Love Polly

            Thank you so much for that, Polly. For the “right” dress, price is no issue. MY original was red, with spaghetti straps and lots of fringe. I lost it years ago, when it accidentally got washed with my wife’s uniform, which had a Magic Marker in the pocket. I would like to replace it, and I would like another, not a Party Dress, but one I could wear as a daytime dress. Yes, drop waist; and the dress yuu describe sounds good; but how might I go about the purchase?

            Hugs,
            Bettylou
