The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

I have a silk blouse that is lavender, perhaps a shade lighter than this background, which I've probably worn twice before.  Why?  Because it's always a bit too snug to wear!  So because I can never wear it, it's sitting in the closet, freshly cleaned and ready to go.

This morning I tried it on and it was positively loose! (that's GOOD)  So I wore it to work, obv, and a few people complimented me on my "new" blouse.  Yay!  Plus the silk feels kinda silky and nice, which is a bonus.

Cut to lunch time..............

There's a lunch presentation going on, complete with free lunches that include mammoth sized sandwiches and mammoth sized desserts.  I opt to skip fattening lunch and instead have my Weight Watchers frozen meal.  I should lose like 10 lbs for that reason alone!  For some reason "free" is far too tempting for me yet I resisted.

As I'm eating my frozen meal, a huge gob of sauce falls from my fork and lands both on my blouse and IN my blouse.  I could feel the slime sliding right down. (That's BAD)

I finally cleaned it all up but there is a huge stain running smack down the middle of my top and I am quite sure the blouse is ruined. (That's UGLY) 

And I only wore it once! This morning I was thrilled that the pretty top was now in the rotation, but thought it's so loose it may only be useful for a couple more weeks.
As I'm think about all this, I decide that I will post about my misery and since words don't do justice to the pretty silk blouse or the nasty stain I rummage for my camera.  Yep, my plan was to take a quick photo of said stain, but guess what?  I left my frigging phone home.  Grrrrrr

I started on a new diet and of course, people brought all sorts of food into work. I resisted, however, as feeling at least the beginning of some progress with the diet keep me motivated. But, man ......

I know what you mean Light! That free food in work is so tempting...but we have to keep focused.

Glad you're seeing progress!

Story of my life - if I really like an article of clothing, either mustard or tomato sauce will find it.

Even if it has to defy the laws of gravity - my shirt is getting marked.

I think I am going to stick to carrots and Club crackers, eaten in the altogether, with all my clothes in individual double garment bags in another building.

And yet, I am sure they will STILL get stained!

Sharon!!!! Thanks so much for the comment and thanks for reading, considering it's mostly poker lingo. We should get the sistas together for a drink or 3.
