This Week

IMG_3991
As hard as I try, this week doesn't seem to want to be my friend. I spent Monday curled up in a ball watching horribly wonderful ABC family and Disney movies on netflix instantly with the jar of Ibprofen by my side. I very nearly let my female hormones get the best of me in the soccer game and had to beg my temper to a) not let me cry on the sidelines b) punch a douchebag the crap out. Today, as I was pulled over by the meanest sheriff in the county, it was my last straw and as he interrogated me rudely on the side of the road demanding that I show him where my phone really was ("I feel like you had enough time to stash it back there"), I started bawling my eyes out but not before he thankfully did not give me a ticket but informed me that the next time, my crying wasn't going to get me anywhere and he would give me a ticket for driving twenty over the speed limit. There is a lot I have to say about this, like the fact that my 1985 Suburu Loyale couldn't reach 70 if he wanted and that I swore off texting whilst driving a year ago, but mostly I'm just surprised that I turned out to be the girl that cries when she gets pulled over. And then cries for another hour. And has to call her mom. I guess this getting pulled over for the first time thing is three years over due.

All of this premenstrual syndrome business has left me plain tuckered out and not motivated in the slight to get dressed. Even the smallest things like my mom offering to take me to get a cold treat or Niklaas cleaning my windshield at the gas station has made me want to cry. I forgot how much energy it takes to cry! Anyways, I'm sure I'll resume outfit posting because I am missing it dearly. I realized how pathetic I've been about blogging this summer and I need to get with it. For now, let me tell you all that I've gone through my wardrobe and this is what I've found:

Things I have way too much of:
1) Floral dresses: Okay, floral dresses rock, but I have too many. There are times when a floral dress is not an option (jumping on a trampoline and going biking for starters) and my little obsession is getting out of hand to the point that there is almost nothing left to wear in my closet but floral dresses, however nice and cute that they are.
2) White tops: Really. By the dozen. That I don't wear.
3) Skirts I don't like: The skirts I liked two years ago that are buried at the bottom of my skirt drawer are things I wouldn't wear now... and it's time to say sayonara.

Things I need to have a more complete wardrobe:
1) ACCESSORIES!!!!! I think I've resorted to this state of mind where I shop for only dresses. I suddenly have no necklaces to speak of minus the ones that Alex really kindly buys me every so often (i love you, Alex) and two belts. And a few bows. I need accessories. I need to realize that accessories can go further than a new dress. This is a necessity.
2) Shorts: This is in lieu of the floral dresses and skirts problem. I need to get in the frame of mind of buying pieces! I think I need to keep telling myself this, no matter what adorable print on a dress I find in any amazing color.
3) Shoes: I'm trying to figure out how it is that I have one pair of sandals and one pair of flats. That I've had for two years. Honestly. It's summer. How have I made it this long!?!? I need to get shoes. I need shoes.

Basically, I need some practicality in my life.

It seems like I have my work cut out for me, kids. Please, don't hate me after reading this incredibly self absorbed PMS surged rant.

P.S. Take comfort in the fact that I might have to be institutionalized when I'm pregnant.

Rachel said...

Boo that sheriff sounds mean! I have far too many dresses too, but still sometimes don't feel like wearing any of them. Hope you're feeling better asap! X

Emma said...

Amelia said...

awww i'm sorry it's been such an awful week. the popo suck & sometimes you just have to cry. i would know about that haha. i'm a crier too.

Kuleigh said...

Sorry you got pulled over. I would probably cry too :( Put the extras on the blog shop! I went through my closet yesterday too. My biggest problem is that I have pieces that don't create outfits so I'm trying to either come up with outfits or make a list of things I'm missing so I can actually wear the skirts I have! I don't really need new clothes. Just a few things here and there but not a whole haul before school.

Natalie said...

Oh geez. The first time I end up getting pulled over (not that I think I'll be doing anything illegal in the coming future, but I'm sure it's bound to happen eventually...) I am almost certain that I will be bawling my eyes out, and all I can do is hope that the police officer will not be totally cold hearted. I'm crossing my fingers that day will never ever come, though...

Yeah, my wardrobe tends to be majorly lopsided as well. I have way too many skirts, way too many sweaters, but not enough shirts or pants. Or shoes.

I hope this week gets better!

Amber Blue Bird said...

I have yet to be pulled over (knock on wood) but I think I might cry too, pms or not.

Michal said...

:(( weeks like this are so sucky. i totally feel your pain! that sheriff sounds like such an idiot too! grrr. hope everything starts sorting itself out soon. :)

i have an overload of florals in general. i'm addicted to the print. and i also have a bunch of skirts i don't like. i don't know why i buy them. dresses trump skirts every day anyways. and sorry about that pull over. i swear the first is always the worst. they find the meanest guys to pull over all the newbies. my guy gave me quite the yelling too. and i too was the girl who cried when she got pulled over.

Bethany Kellen of bunnypicnic said...

i feel like my closet needs an overhaul too. i don't even have a lot of clothes. but ugh. yes.

i'm sorry you had the worst week ever. :(

Katie said...

Hahaha!! You sound just like me!! My poor big sister gets dumped with all my emotions now - I putty my husband when I get married. He's gonna move out when I get pregnant...

It's so hard to decide what staples you need, and even harder to stick to buying just those when you go shopping. At least that's what I've found. :-P

Alex said...

I think we all go through those days! And it sucks, but they eventually go away! OH! I wish I had your wardrobe! I think I'm completely on the opposite side. Too many shorts, accessories and shoes D: it's kind of insane actually! I need floral dresses and all that stuff. Hey, I love you too :) I am still trying to find nice necklaces to send, but I keep finding the same type of things over and over again. urrrrgh :( your birthday gift may arrive a little too late! but it will get there <3

Jamie Rose said...

Haha it's okay, we all have those days. Also, you're not alone in the getting pulled over thing. I didn't get pulled over until last October and although I didn't cry when the officer was near me, on the rest of my ride back from school I did. I felt like such an idiot. How rude of him to continually accuse you of texting and driving. I'd be so mad if that happened to me because I never do that. It's not worth the risk. I always wonder how they'd know if you're just scrolling to call someone or actually texting. Hmm...

Hope next week will be much better!! :)

Ebony said...

:( Sounds like you're having a craptastic few days! But hey, things can only go up from here right? I'm so glad you know you can vent to us Mags.

So with you on the needing of accessories, shorts and shoes. Craig and I were getting ready for a pretty full day (car cleaning and what not) and he suggested shorts as clothing. I don't have any! :D

Love you. And now I can't stop picturing you as a little mum because of your last line. Haha

Margaret said...

Maggie, I'm so glad you didn't get ticketed. I got ticketed a $200 penalty for driving 2 FRIGGIN MILES over speed limit (20 mph) in Dayton. (It's on the way to Walla Walla). That police officer was the biggest jerk I've ever met and I wanted to flip him off and punch the daylights out of him arghghghgg ok I'm done.

Dreamy Princess said...

It's Ok to be emotional. Write that out could really ease a bit(:

Ouch! maybe the sheriff got his pms?

haha.. I have lots of tops I don't like. I don't know how come they were there!

Cheers,
Dreamy Princess
