Don't judge me by what I wear. A rant ****update**** in red
Okay, I went to the grocery store to pick up milk and eggs for breakfast this morning around 7a.m. I had on sweat shorts and a T-shirt and flip flops. My hair was pulled back in a ponytail to keep it out of my face. So, I was not dressed to impress. Why should I if I'm going to make breakfast and clean the house. I don't know one person who dresses up.
So, I's standing line line to check out. I had 2 women in back of me making comments on how I look. I tried to ignore them just because they don't know my situation. The comment was made that people like me should learn what fashion was, lose some weight and get a job. I snapped. I turned around and said " For your information, I've been up since 3:00 am with my dying father in law everyday for two weeks because he has phnemonia and probly won't make it till the end of the week. Plus, I was trying to do something nice for my hubby that has been working 80 hrs a week because they are on a deadline and has not been home to eat a decent meal with his family. So I was trying to make him some breakfast. besides that, My 3 boys have not had a lot of attention because of father in law, so I was trying to be nice and make pancakes. Oh and by the way, not making excuses about my weight but I have a thyroid problem and can't lose it."
The ladies shut their mouths and didnt say another word.
I wear old clothes because I'm a stay at home mom. I'm not going to wear a dress to clean pee off the toilet, I'm not going to wear heals to do laundry. The money my husband makes goes to bills and for the boys.
I chose to pay registartion fees for football and baseball for my kids. I choose to buy clothes for my kids so they don't go naked to school. Yes I go to goodwill or thrift stores to buy "brand name" clothes for them. I have nice clothes to go out in. But I refuse to wear them to clean in. Why can't anyone see that.
please for the love of God, don't judge till you know what the other person is going through.
As of 2 a.m. My father in law past in his sleep. Thank you all for your love and support. Now I can focus on my own family and myself. Your kind words and well wishes will not be forgotten.
