Yes, I’m this happy about pants

I’m generally not one to spend too much time looking back.

When I do, it’s because I’m lying awake at night talking to imaginary people that aren’t really there. Explaining stuff from the past — to them, and to myself.

But sometimes there’s benefit in revisiting the past.

While procrastinating about calling some prospective clients today, I took a look at the photos I’d posted to the blog. And I found this post. What’s so fascinating about this post? Not the photos of my Duncan cutie, surprisingly. It was this little, innocent line: “Along the way, I stopped in Old Navy and bought a couple of pairs of pants — in size 10.”

I have size 10 pants somewhere in the closet! Pants that might fit me now! (Granted, when I wrote that post, Duncan was just over 2 months old, about the same age Berry is now, but I was 10 lbs heavier when I got pregnant with him, so I must have been much closer to my pre-pregnancy weight then than I am now…but anyway.) Pants that might fit me!

I went to Target a few weeks ago and bought 2 pairs of size 12 pants – some capris and a pair of shorts. They still fit. But there’s only two of them. And I know I haven’t talked about Berry much, but she spits up. A lot. I probably haven’t had time to post about it in between doing piles of puke-covered laundry.

So 2 pairs of pants doesn’t cut it.

After reading about them, I vaguely remembered these size 10 pants. After rummaging in the top of the closet, I actually found them. One pair is more “work” style. But the others are perfect for my new work wardrobe (and actually quite dressy compared to the PJs I wore all day yesterday). I also unearthed a pair of promising-looking shorts. It was a good start to the day.

Then I procrastinated some more about cold-calling people (although I did do about 20 calls which were all excrutiatingly painful). I took a look back in the past some more and read Omar’s posts about parenting.

  1. What “stuff from the past”,uh?

  2. It’s the little things that can really make your day at this age, isn’t it? Yay on finding good clothes (that you didn’t have to buy)! Also: I totally sympathize on the puke. Both my sons had reflux, and the baby has been barfing again at least once a day for the past few days – I think post-nasal drip is the culprit. Hope the cold calls go easier!
