Or, I’m Truly Blessed with Great Friends
It’s a little less than 30 days, really, but at the end of this month, The Teen will undergo an unrelated donor bone marrow transplant in an attempt to cure her severe Sickle Cell Disease, and I will join the ranks of Those Who Do Not Work in Offices Anymore.

via eBay); Stoopid necklace flipped backwards so who bloody cares?
Please ignore me for a bit while I have an identity crisis. I might not even be joking right now.
Why more pics than usual? The Porch Mouse made me (see after the jump). Seriously, it’s because I wanted y’all to see the gorgeous and comfy shoes Megan Mae
The bracelet is a trinket from a thrift shop clearance bin.
I call these my Star Trek shoes.
Icky, cold rain. Dorky pic. Must share.
I am not the boss of my hair.
I had this grand plan to take pictures of my last month of official “9 to 5” pics, but I’m just not that grand. The truth is, if I’m not at work, I’m de-cluttering and cleaning my bloody house, getting it ready to host The Teen’s wiped out autoimmune system later this year. Or I’m filling out great gobs of paperwork for a major medical procedure that is also part of a significant research study.
Also, due to the constant rain, The Absent-Minded Professor parked his grill in front of my photo wall. (The Porch Mouse is super ticked off, after telling all his friends that he is a rodent style blogger.)
Is The Good Will Hunting Paralegal
going off quietly into the good night? No, but only because I’m a horrific insomniac. Hee
. Plus, I can only afford to shop at the Goodwill,
and I do have to go out in public sometimes, and I will eventually return to earning a living. I will keep you guys posted, and make an appearance here just often enough to share my love of secondhand clothes and to blather on about being a woman of a certain age (even if my kids wish I wouldn’t).

P.S. I’m joining Visible Monday
at Not Dead Yet Style
because this lovely Karina Dress does make me feel more confident, alive, and visible ~
even on the days I kind of want to disappear for a bit.
