Well...I just discovered I have been wearing two different shoes since October.  I know this for certain because when the grandbaby and her mother came to visit on October 11th, I took the shoes I wear and some clothes out of the master bedroom so she and the baby could sleep in there.  Two pairs of Nikes were the shoes.  Immediately, I lost one...found it today in the bottom of the laundry basket.  I looked down at my feet and yes indeedie...one gray with a pink swoosh and one white with a gray swoosh.  Now, I don't know about you girls, but I have to buy my shoes one size larger in the winter so I can wear two pairs of socks.  Canal boats, you say?  yeah.  The left one felt a little tight but when you're in a killer flare, who notices the extra pain? 
I will say this.  I don't suppose anyone noticed this new fashion statement.  While standing in Walmart the other day, the girl in front of me was wearing black canvas Keds that went up over her knee.  The price tag was hanging off the laces.  The price tag was also still attached to her parka and baseball cap.
So...at sixty two years old, I am still in 'the groove'.  I'm 'where it's at...the cat's meow.'  And 'totally excellent,'  in the fashion realm.
Oh and you know how I LOVE commericals...just as I am writing this a commerical came on for Enbrel. This woman says...I knew RA was painful but didn't know it could attack my joints.  What planet does she live on?  Didn't know it could affect her joints?  Like her doctor said to her "You have RA.  Your hair may fall out and expect to walk listing to the right."
I have decided to start my own line of designer Fibro clothing...and Butt crack jeans are totally out!

Well Donna,

How does it feel to be making a fashion statement? I do the same thing with socks, but when I wear them, I know that I have a pair at home just like them. LOL>...

We do what we have to to get by I guess. Shirts inside out, I put one on backwards the other day. I twas a sweater so I didn't notice at first until I looked in the mirror. Boy was I suprised, but wondered why it felt different. So there it goes, we all do it.

We are having the storm of the century right now. Hope that this ends before tomorrow. We have to go have Christmas with the grandkids.

I hope that you have a wonderful day. Keep up with the new styles, and no butt crack jeans for me either.LOL...

Hugs, Karen

Donna, sometimes just making it out of the house in one piece is a triumph, let alone being put together.  Yes, you are "still in the groove".  I love the idea of Fibro fashions, it even has a kinda ring to it, don't cha think?  I am glad to know I am not the only one to do these things, to come home from the store & look into the mirror & go "Oh No"! because my hair is standing on end & sticking out all over.  So, I just got outta bed, what am I suppose to look like?  
Do you talk to your television too?  I can't believe some of the commercials they have today.  They can try my patience.  
Thank you for the laugh today.  By the way, I was up at 9:00 AM today.  I haven't seen the morning in about 2 months.  It is a huge accomplishment.  Hugs, Denise

Maybe you should color code your clothing, Donna!  You could put pink shoelaces in one pair and grey shoelaces in the other.  devil

Donna, you need to start buying Garanimals for yourself so you will always match. devil
I made pretzel salad this morning, well kinda. I put pretzels in the demon food processer and was going to measure the crumbs after they were crushed. Couldn't get the thing open again so had to have DH open it for me, forgot all about measuring the crumbs and went ahead and put the sugar and butter in and whirled it up for the crust. Didn't even think about not measuring them til it was in the oven so I have no idea if it will hold together or not. Put the jello in the boiling water to melt and went back to the beast to whip the cream cheese and sugar together, put the frozen strawberries in the jello, by the time I got the stupid thing open again to put the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl to add coolwhip the frozen strawberries had set the jello so I have lumpy jello on top of the filling. Oh yeah, got whole strawberries instead of sliced so everyone that dare it it will have to cut their strawberries.
I left the kitchen, not to return til next year.
luv and hugs
