The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
That’s me. Well, at least the short part.
It’s that time of year again, when The Absent-Minded Professor and The Teen head back to school, and I have to get my own outfit pics of my super
cheap inexpensive thrifty clothes on most days. As y’all can tell, I haven’t completely mastered my camera. In anticipation of some of those snarky commenters in camera forums, yes, I did try reading the manual. I also tried reading my car engine manual, and none of that stuck either.
But the Internet is a wonderful place, and I did find some more straightforward tips for grabbing those tough low light and indoor shots that are all a working mom with a seven-minute lunch hour has time for, including using a self-timer (buy a wireless remote, will order this week), opening the aperture wider, and increasing the ISO (which I can now decrease due to blinding y’all with my white legs). Yeah, I don’t know what that means, either.
It’s a crazy week, with tons of litigation deadlines, and many immigration calls regarding Deferred Action. Yesterday, The Teen had a sickle cell pain event that luckily resolved at home, but worried me sick. Oh, and band camp starts this week. More to worry about. And all those AP and honors classes – in science. You’d think it was my homework 😮
So I don’t want to worry about my clothes. I realized there is nothing wrong with all the basic, conservative gray and black items I have in my closet, and they probably do look better on me than many of the last year’s trends, because well, let’s face facts, I’m short, and lots of clothes and patterns swamp me. This might be the week of the Most Basic Separates Ever.
