It is almost

as if the cricket outside our bedroom window hates ME more then I hate IT.

Every.single.night I lay awake to its chirping.. (it might as well be fingernails on a chalkboard, or ice chewing, or some sort of torture device found in the museum portion of Medieval Times)'s like it has a vendetta against me.

In past summers I would go outside, in my pajamas, with a broom and shoo it away. Now we have a new neighbor next door and they come outside at odd times....that is all I would need is him to walk outside and see me under my bedroom window (almost on his driveway) in my pajamas, with a broom (that sounds like I just solved Clue!).

I may have to take my chances.

Off to St. Paul tomorrow for my cousins wedding. I haven't a single thing to wear, so, I am off to the store tonight to find something. Let me tell you how much this sucks when you are fat. Nothing like clothes shopping to push you right over the edge before you jump into a minivan with your older sisters and your mom for a 6 hour drive.

Oh--- it will be one of those "interesting" weekends, I can feel it!

Your neighbor is probably tired of hearing the bug as well... he might actually appreciate you taking care of the nasty creature. :)

I hate clothes shopping - especially during bathing suit time which happens to be all year long here in Florida! Sometimes it makes me want to slit my wrists. :) Have a great weekend!

I hear you Casey. The choices are, Mumu, black pants and a mumu like top or um....that's it. Those are the choices. Good luck and have a great time!

I say show your neighbor your jammies!! Sleep is too important to pass up. But I think that idea that the cricket has a vendetta against you is quite funny.

As for shopping, girl go to a store where the clothes are made for you, or at least a section. When I try to even consider shopping in the teen section, I get upset because a "large" looks as though it was made to fit an underfed toddler. Embrace your lovely curves and buy something that makes you feel pretty!
