I'm fine, really - just overwhelmed. I'm having an off week, maybe even month; my confidence has been in the toilet and I have more work than one person can possibly handle. Lauren blames the former on my trip to Florida, because of all of the bikini bods and perfectly tan and blonde beauties. I think she might be right. Once the winter layers come off, you tend to get really self conscious about what's underneath. At least, I do. I guess that doesn't make it excusable. Man, I am ridiculous.
On the plus side, today was much better. I got a little dressed up, in hopes of boosting my spirit and motivating me to plow through this work. It sounds completely superficial but getting gussied up makes me want to work and be productive. By the way, in order to even wear this dress, I had to replace the stupid zipper. It was such a pain, because there is boning in the bodice. I also made myself a little bow tie, because that's just what I do. My getup made me feel like a girl Willy Wonka. I wish I had a jaunty top hat.
Obviously, my chest is not big enough to fill out the dress...but I was not about to mess with that. Maybe next time I will just stuff my bra (I will not).
