That’s it – I’m staying in pajamas.

It started out a perfectly nice day. Zoe and I slept in later than I expected after her early bedtime last night. We played. We danced to “Pop” by *NSYNC no fewer than four times. I even got a few things done around the house.

In retrospect I have pinpointed that things started to fall apart when I got us dressed for the day. It is usually a mistake to journey beyond the lax borders of comfortable pants. It is downright catastrophic to do so in favor of freshly dried, one-size-too-small jeans. (Jeans that I got, by the way, before my recent extra five pounds and after I determined that I looked homeless in the jeans I was wearing every day.) No amount of wearing around the house will loosen the waist enough to avoid an epic muffin top. As if the aesthetics weren’t awful alone, my scar aches every moment of every day, and anything but fat pants exacerbates it into a raging pain. (I have resolved to get this seen about next week.) After that, I decided that my hair and nails are embarrassing, I don’t want to live with cats, and Zoe became inconsolably and monotonously fussy, alternately clingy and bored.

Thankfully my memory is terrible and I don’t remember the other little things that happened, though I do know that my original post would have been around 4PM if my network hadn’t gone down, taking my (unsaved) post with it. I also wore my homeless jeans to dinner with my Mom, who is very forgiving with my terrible mood. (Thanks, Mom, for dinner and patience with me.) Is it possible that just getting dressed ruined my day?

Dear Jeebus: Zoe, who is supposed to be sleeping, is fussing again. Separation anxiety is a bitch for both of us. And teething is a cruel, cruel joke.

She’s back to sleep. I wish I could help the little monkey. Anyway I suppose the point of all this is that I need to slow my roll – I have a good life. I just need to work on my patience and get more exercise. And if you see me socially, please forgive me if I am wearing something inappropriate in my search for comfort.
