I miss my closet! It SUCKS trying to figure out what to wear every morning from a crowded rolling rack in my home office, with pieces monkey-hung six down. I have no clue what I own, I don't have a mirror nearby, and I just get overwhelmed. Today they were to come and start repairing the roof, but it's raining off and on, will be doing such for the rest of the week so I fear repairs will be delayed.

Not to be Negative Nelly all over this post, but the sound of rain falling on a tarp covering a huge hole in your roof is not pleasant. It made getting to sleep and staying asleep very difficult last night. I have been trying to stay positive about this whole experience (no one was hurt, little material damage, yadda yadda) but it's starting to get to me. While it really isn't a big deal (again, no one was hurt and my house is still liveable), it reminds me of when I was on bedrest for pregnancy. Everyone asks a ton of questions, constantly bringing it up, and they keep sharing their horror stories of missed water damage destroying a home, second hurricanes coming, etc. which just stresses me out more. I can't wait until this is all over and done with (and note to all, if your friend is on bedrest while pregnant, don't tell her stories of HELLP, placenta previa and abruption, and early labor and forced C-sections. Just bring her magazines and snacks and come by to say hi.).

This weekend I started feeling under the weather on Saturday night, by Sunday early evening I was full-blown sick. Chills, body aches, sinuses freaking out, eyes hurting, fever. Sunday Emerson woke with the same thing I had so we were sicky poos together all day on yesterday. Today I am better, though still sniffling and feeling grody. While Emerson's nose is running like a faucet and she is pretty low-key, she too seems to be feeling better today.

    Oh goodness, it doesn’t sound very fun.  I’m sorry to hear you are dealing with all of that.  I hope your roof gets fixed soon and on a positive note, I love the bright pink bow belt!

    Thanks Jo! Emerson is down to just sniffles, unfortunately it seems the virus is ramping up on my system. Hey if I want anyone well fast, it’s E! 🙂

    Your dress has such simple lines yet looks so great on you. Love the belt.

    Get well fast, and your little girl too.

    Wow, that sounds like a lot of stuff for you to deal with. I’m so sorry it’s been so rough lately. I’m thinking about you and praying things get better quickly.

    On a happy  note, you look FANTASTIC in that dress!!! The red belt is the perfect touch. 🙂

    Aw, sweetheart, I really feel for you – sending hugs from my side of the Atlantic. I hope you are both better soon, the roof is fixed and you can get your closet back.

    You look lovely today, despite everything. x

    Oh Misty, if I could send the rain there I would! My heart goes out to the folks in Texas affected by the fires. <3

    Thanks so much Christine. And that’s wonderful to hear! I haven’t been on point with WW lately, but I love that it’s a lifestyle, and if I don’t adhere 100% I’m not “bad” or feel as though I have failed. I have already created lifestyle changes that are habit now, even when I’m not concentrating on Weight Watchers. Good luck!

    You look great. Sorry that you aren’t feeling well. Please feel free to send that rain here, half of TX is on fire.Also, it is natural to have a downer debbie moment or two. You guys have had a rough couple of weeks. I think you look great though, stress or no stress!

    You definitely can be a negative nelly/nancy for a bit – considering that you lost your closet to a HURRICANE! Yeeeep! I do love the skinny belt and the darling little bow on it!

    You definitely look fab, black is such a good color on you, it needs very little to make it great.
    Darn about the rain… rain, rain, go away… Allie needs her closet back!
    Get-well wishes for you and your little girl.

    I just wanted to say that you look amazing today, and you can definitely notice how far you’ve come in your weight loss!  Go you!  Even though you aren’t feeling it you are rocking the look.  And yes… people say the stupidest things ARGH!

    Ah, sick and with a sick kiddie, and house all asunder — no wonder you’re not feeling all sunny! Sending positive thoughts your way – and if it helps, you look like a million-billion bucks in your sleek black dress.

    Commenting to commiserate–today sucks all around for everyone, I think!  Over the weekend, we got a TON of rain, and got a leak.  Where was the leak (of all the places it could have been)?  In my closet!  And because I had the door shut, we didn’t hear it or know it was happening until everything was soaked and the water was coming down pretty hard.  Now, it is no tree through the roof, but this morning I got up and had very few dry clothes, and a good number of my shoes had puddles in them. Moreover, I started washing a bunch of sweaters and bras last night on delicate, and managed to forget them in the washer–when I got up this morning, I had no dry bras to wear, so I’m wearing an old one that doesn’t fit.  AND, the leak tripped some of the wires in the bathroom, so I had no power to blow dry my hair this morning (rocking the pony…)  ARGH.

    Just writing to let you know that if you want to be Negative Nelly, let ‘er rip!  And to say, you’re not alone out there.  And to say, despite it all, you look amazing.  And well, I don’t, so you are an inspiration!

    Oh Allie, you look FANTABULOUS in this outfit!  Hope you’re feeling better now.

    Sorry you’re not feeling well — and that your house isn’t either — but you look great!
