The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I got about four hours of sleep last night, because I’m a big fat baby about the dentist, and had a dental appointment this afternoon. I come from a long line of smart women who are crazy about dogs and terrified of dentists.
To distract myself from my severe anxiety, I thought in addition to Not
Dead Yet Style’s Visible Monday, I’d do the Two Birds Inspiration Monday outfit challenge: “Don’t be afraid of the dark.” I actually had my thrifted chambray shirt ready to go, but then I panicked this morning because I forgot to paint my nails green (instead of green flats like Katie’s wearing ’cause I don’t have any green shoes). Well, I was really panicking over the dentist, but didn’t want to admit that. I also didn’t want to dress up for him.
So I ditched the lighter chambray, and picked wings to wear instead. The inspiration I took from Katie, who was clearly not going to the dentist in her outfit, was keeping things simple with a nearly matching top and denim bottoms, and minimal accessories.
I was a quiet, dreamy kid who used to dream about flying all the time, so maybe that’s why I thrifted this particular top. I kind of wanted to fly away during the middle of my work day, when I had to do something I haven’t had to do in years, thanks to the miracle of the Internet.
I had to call clerks of multiple county courts in another state, because I am trying track down a divorce judgment for an individual who does not know when, where, or even if the divorce took place (it happens more than you think). The information is not available online. I had forgotten about the disdain, heck, even downright dislike, some government officials have for the public. Basically, I got a “how could you not know if you’re divorced or not? I’m divorced and I know it.” lecture from one clerk, like I didn’t know if I’m divorced or not. Helllloooo, not my personal issue, just need ya to look up a name, puh-leeze, since it’s your job.
Fly me away from here. The shirt didn’t work. The dentist was worse than I imagined. Maybe I’ll try Calgon.
At least the end of Monday is looking up. My neighbor has invited The Teen and I over for spinach lasagna and peach cobbler. So I’ma fly, or maybe just waddle, on over there 😛
Hope your Monday was fairly painless, but if you want to share anything you wanted to fly away from today, feel free to
