Maybe it’s a post-vacation thing (that weekend away was short, but it was much-anticipated and a big change of scenery/routine).
Maybe my hormones are coming back (I am prone to PMS and honestly could probably even say PMDD), though I’m still nursing and in the past that has kept everything suppressed until I stop, so who knows.
Maybe it’s just that one cannot be euphorically happy all of the time, no matter how objectively wonderful one’s life is.
(Because I am aware I have essentially nothing to complain about).
But man! This week. Let’s just say I am going to try to be nicer and more equanimous today.
On the up-side: my Trunk came! I am not sure if I am keeping anything from it. My stylist picked very fashionable items, but she doesn’t seem to be grasping the “I AM 5’1″!!” please I have sent to her and some of the outfits look like I am playing dress-up in a grown-up’s closet or something. There were 2 bathing suits which I kind of want feedback on, but I am not terribly sure I want bathing suit pictures of myself online. For better or for worse. Maybe I’ll post them and then take them down later.
For now, here is a model in the suits:
I actually really like this one, but am not sure there is enough support up top, if you know what I’m saying.
This one is cute BUT a) I feel like the high-waisted style kind of has a blocky effect and b) I feel like the waist hits at a weird area. Also c) the top might be a little small on me.
So, there you go. Some stylish bathing suits, and a lot of moodiness.
PS: I am almost finished reading Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan. It was for our residency book club, but man – what a fascinating (and mildly terrifying) story. I have always loved books about mental illness, beginning with The Bell Jar and never looking back! I feel like the exploration of diseased brains provide so much insight into how things are supposed to work, as mysterious as it is. (At one point, I considered becoming a psychiatrist (vintage post evidence)! I’m glad I didn’t, but I still think it’s so interesting.
