Just Being Jana

I like to wear dresses. They make me feel pretty. And in this weather they make me feel pretty cold, so I decided to try out these tights I see in all the catalogs. Lord help me, what was I thinking? 
I go in to a store and attempt to pick out a pair that matches one of my dresses. The lady at the store told me “gray is the new black”. Alrighty then, gray it is. She also mentioned that they are quite the miracle worker in hiding flaws with their built in tummy tucker. You mean I can wear these and not have to walk around sucking in my stomach all the time? Put me in coach…I’m ready to play. I make my purchase and take them home. What happened next is somewhat of a blur. Lord help me, what was I thinking?
I have a routine of sorts getting ready for work in the mornings. I hit the snooze twice at 6am, get up, have my coffee, play on FB, watch GMA, then at 7, I wake Mike up and I proceed to shower and spiffy up for the day. It doesn’t seem like a strict schedule but my body has grown accustomed to it and goes through my routine flawlessly and on schedule. That was… before tights came into the picture. Lord help me, what was I thinking? 
I get Mike on his way to work, blow dry my hair and move into the getting dressed phase of my day. I lay my dress on the bed and remove the miracle tights from their carton. I then remove Demon Cat from atop my dress I laid on the bed. I continue with the tights. I scrunch them down like you would pantyhose and fit them over my foot. Ohhhh…cozy. I then have a 5 minute mental argument on whether to follow through with the one foot until on and then do the other or put both feet in and pull up all at once. My decision was soon made when Demon Cat spotted the loose foot of the tights flailing back and forth and pounced on it thinking it was some type of new toy. I wrestle the tights back from the cat and lock him out of the bedroom so I can continue in peace getting dressed. Peace? Lord help me, what was I thinking? 
I make my way back to the edge of the bed and continue to pour myself into this new found miracle garment referred to as tights. I get both feet in and pull the tights up my legs with little effort. Ohhh… they are warm! I then proceed to pull what I assumed was the “miracle” part around my hips and stomach. I then pick up the tight package and check the size because at this point I’m sure I had mistakenly grabbed one in a child’s size. Just as I feared, they were my size. I decide to use the sure fire jean method from the 80’s. I lie back on the bed and attempt to pull the tights up once again. Lord help me, what was I thinking? 
After 20 minutes of what I’m calling my morning workout, I am successfully wearing said tights. I continue to dress and try to regain some of the lost time of my morning. I hurry with my hair and makeup and gather my things to head to the office. I stop in front of the mirror for a quick look at what I worked so hard for. If I must say so I looked mighty shapely in them. I looked in the mirror, smiled and thanked the lord for helping me through this trying time. “Dear Lord, thank you for getting me to this point, thank you for all I have and if you don’t mind, Lord, please keep me from having to use the facilities today. Amen…”


Can you relate?
