attitude adjustment

I rather dislike the saying "Hindsight is 20/20." It's just a polite academic way of saying "I could have told you so, moron." And if I think about it for a minute, I told myself. Then promptly ignored my own instincts and created an alternate reality that has not panned out.

Perhaps later after shopping the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale for 8 hours drinking heavily gaining some distance from the situation, I will detail my issues. For now, I'll do an Ups & Downs list, with emphasis on the 'Ups' because the 'Downs' are clearly distressing my readers (LOVE YOU GUYS! Sorry to make you fret!). Here, the first Up:

I have looked positively fantastic during this trip (Down: Did not take pictures, until this morning).

Maybe it's the magical Westin Heavenly Mirrors.


Trying for a whimsical outlook.


Check out at that hair! Unbelievable, folks. I should take it shopping.

Another Up: I remembered to pack my slippers.

Cozy, sequined, and only $1 at a garage sale. We're in love.

Up: Free popcorn in swag bags. Down? Westin had no microwave to offer us. Up: Room service picked up, popped, delivered on a tray.

We ate every kernel while watching the uproariously funny Forgetting Sarah Marshall.


Seriously, I feel better about the day ahead so no need to send psychotherapists, medication, or Depression Hotline numbers. Free drink coupons, maybe.

The groping offer is still on the table.

PS: I fixed our boxspring. The frame in the center was actually bent. :)

bent the boxspring frame? wow. honeymoon is over who?

and, you have really good ponytail karma, sans ponytail, but how do you get your hair to go like that at the back? fabulous.

Oh, that does sound naughty. It was from kids that won't admit they jump on our bed. The problem was during 'adult activities' the failure was exacerbated and very evident.

Okay husband, time to shut it. I discovered at one of the information sessions that comment keywords can drive search engine queries...

Love you all*

Looking gorgeous my friend. I guess the water in SF does wonderful things for the hair.Thanks for all the updates!

Suzanne said...

Glad you are having such a great time! I've never gone anywhere that passed out swag bags, except for the dentist... but that's mostly boring stuff. I'm trying to not be jealous. And your hair looks sweet! I love it when my hair goes just right, especially on trips.

Room service popped your corn?! Awesome! And the hair looks fab.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Your hair looks so fantastic I'm also going to put an offer on the table to grope you.

(Sorry about any perv searchers that come by because I offered some girl-on-girl groping.)

Lisa Milton said...

I will not grope and say naughty things, just now, but you do look lovely.

Now back to the popcorn and fun with Jen.

See you soon. :)

JCK said...

I can attest. Her hair has looked fabulous every time I've run into her at the conference.
