W.O.L.D.

My second old lady moment of the day came in the art supply store over the cost of a tube of cadmium yellow light. Have you priced acrylic paints lately? Well they ain't selling at 1990 prices that's for sure. I felt like I was standing in the grocery store in my sagging knee highs: "will ya just look at the price of bread these days!"
My first old lady moment came earlier when my new bathing suit from Land's End arrived - the two-piece suit with the little skirt.
"I'm wearing bathing suits with little skirts on them!" I thought at I tried it on.
Then I looked at myself in the mirror and thought, "hey, I look pretty good - for someone who's had twins"
Which is either a horrible thought or a mature thought; or a horribly mature thought.

I missed this post, so glad I found it. I ditched the swimsuit skirt this year.

Well that gives me some hope.
I figured that once you were in the bathing-suit-with-a-skirt camp, there was no going back.
