Our “June Gloom” seems to be pretty entrenched at this point; mornings are cool and cloudy (light jacket and scarf weather), and if we’re lucky we’ll get some sunshine in the afternoon before the fog rolls back in again. As I previously mentioned, this little utility jacket has been getting quite a workout!
I had an early dentist appointment yesterday and planned to vote and run some errands afterward, so tossed on a no-brainer-but-presentable outfit. The scarf is over a decade old, and was an inexpensive impulse purchase that has more than earned its keep. I always get compliments on it, and I really like the feminine element it adds here to balance out the more masculine jacket.
I’ve had intermittent TMJ over the last few years and have been experiencing another flare-up the past few weeks. Sometimes my jawbone on the left side pops out of its socket when I chew or yawn and gets “locked,” and it can take a while to work it back into alignment. Annoying at best, painful at worst. My dentist has recommended that I wear a night guard (a small piece of plastic that slips over my teeth and helps my jaw stay relaxed and aligned while I sleep), so she took impressions to get one made. Fingers crossed it will help.
These sandals are comfortable enough for a day of dentist visits and errand running.
I’m now two weeks into my new routine, and am finding that I’m still plenty busy, more so that I’d like actually. Some of it is administrative stuff, meetings and paperwork associated with both jeune homme’s move and my employment change but I’m hopeful that should all settle down soon. I’ve had a backlog of projects (little things like getting pants hemmed, and unpacking boxes of personal items from my office) which will probably continue for a while. But I’m happy as a clam to not have to go sit in an office for 9 hours a day, and spend another hour in traffic getting to and from! One challenge has been keeping myself hydrated, so I’ve started keeping a 32 oz. jug of water nearby while I’m working at home, and keeping a bottle of water in the car. But self-employment is agreeing with me…I’ve managed to release a couple of pesky pounds that I acquired last year, and my blood pressure has dropped back down into the low/normal range.
How do you like to dress for a day of “getting stuff done?”
