Day 404 ~ July's Message {better late than never}

Here I've been so busy finding myself... bonding with God... finding my religion (hey.. isn't that ... never mind) ... lol... anyways... back to reality now... no, seriously... continuing with what I should have shared with you two weeks ago, at the beginning of July...

July?... July? ... Yes July!!...  {and} In our home, because Calley is so excited to start kindergarten, we are counting down to when school starts.  41 days 9 hours 41 minutes 13 seconds (and counting)...  

I know... in most homes kids shutter at the thought of Summer 2012 half way being over.  Families returning from summer vacations.  Summer camps underway, and some are even over...  wow... another summer with memories outliving summer itself.

Okay!  There's still some summer left!  Let's soak it in all we can!!  Enjoy!

So... let's do a recap here...
January's message...This above all:  to thine ownself be true.
February's message... Keep  your eye on the goal, and don't let anything distract you.
March 2012's message... Anyone Who Says She Doesn't Need a Girlfriend Just 
Hasn't Found a Good One Yet..
April 2012's message... If you want rainbows, you gotta have rain. 
May 2012's message... Never underestimate the power of a "Hissie Fit".
June 2012's message... Wish... Hope... Dream... Then Make It Happen  
Now for this month's message...

July 2012's message:
~ Life Is Too Short to Wear Pantyhose!

I can't think of anything more uncomfortable,
 claustrophobic, or irritating than a pair of pantyhose.
Whoever invented them either hated women, was into sadistic torture,
 or, at the very last, never tried a pair on.

I'd rather have a root canal than shimmy and shake myself into a pair-
much less proceed to wear them all day.
(It doesn't help that such stockings are usually associated with some sort of
confining, unyielding, contoured shoes that squeeze the life out of my feet.)
Besides, how can I show off a new pedicure, tiny toe rings, and funky flip-flops
if I'm squeezed into such a ridiculous contraption?
Life is just too short to wear pantyhose!

~  Suzy Toronto 

I could not agree more! ...  There was a time and day... however given the right weather, dress and shoe.. well... I love getting all dolled up and dressing up!

I am second.

[here's to you finding your... ]


... for a, l & c.  You are my sunshine(s).

well i am so glad that great beautiful shoes are still in and women have pretty much eliminated panty hose! i have worn them a couple times and i actually think both time were to funerals! (i will think about why that is later). other than that i just shave my legs in summer and stick to pants in the winter!

I love that Calley is so excited for school. I'm hoping Christopher can muster up some enthusiasm for the second grade. So far there is none. :-O Love that passage by Suzy Toronto. Last time I had on a pair I couldn't stand the noise I was making as my inner thighs rubbed together. I guess I'd start a fire now.

I agree! I cannot stand pantyhose! They drive me crazy!

Pepper said...

Pantyhose is sheer torture, I agree!
Oh, Calley's starting school soon! Excitement's in the air...

Go ahead and make the most of what's left of the summer :)

Not a fan of the pantyhose! I gave up on them a long time a go, I can't tell you how many pairs I wrestled myself into only to put a run in them!

Wendy said...

I seriously can't remember the last time I wore pantihose LOL. When I did I would always manage to snag them on something and have the biggest run in them.

I dont even have pantyhose anymore, because I never wear them, there was a time when you had to wear them back in the day, but now its bare legs and nice shoes!
