Tuesday Confessional

I really like Forever 21. 

BUT. . .

It makes me feel old. 

I walk through it and shake my head at what those kids are wearing these days. 

And then I find something I love.  Hidden under a pile of halter tops, mini skirts and leg warmers. 

I do most of my shopping there online. 


I'm taking a break. 

Partly because I'm going to California this week and while I'm there, I want to be THERE.  

But also, because I need a break. I need to figure some things out. Reevaluate what is important.  Here and in real life.  

It might take a week. Or two. 

But, I figure, everyone else is on vacation now, right?  

See you when I get back!

See you when you come back--a new woman--all rested and together. Enjoy the respite.

Have fun in California! We need a break too. Life is gettting to be so busy.

And, what is up with year round school?

I hope you have a great time here in California. Are you going to meet any blogger friends?

Have a great break!
I like some stuff at Forever 21, but it's such a confusing store. Everything is done by color rather than style and it completely throws me off!

Oh I hope your trip is so good. Taking a break is ALWAYS a good idea.

And Forever 21...my thoughts exactly.

I only go to Forever 21 to buy jewelry.

Have fun on your trip! And I hope your break from home and blogging is good, but do come back!

I totally support you on your BREAK. sometimes we have to "step away" and breath and reconnect with US and what's important and REAL
summer time and warm weather is a good time to remind us of who we are, what we want to be and where we need to go
enjoy your trip to California

It is totally frightening what these girls wear. Even the little girls have scary clothes.

Have a great time in CA!!

Melissa Bastow said...

Take as long as you want. In fact - take an extra week in California!

I'll be here when you get back.

And if part of your "re-evaluation process" involves moving to Boise, the house next to us is for sale. And I KNOW you want to hang out with me ALL SUMMER LONG.

Have fun! I'll miss you.

Loralee and the gang... said...

OK, but come BACK! And tell us about your California trip! I will be here. (Sigh...)

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Have fun! Come back soon!

I know what you mean. On both counts. Both the crazy teenage clothes and the needing to evaluate my life. I have had this sneaking feelng for a few months now that I'd have a better quality of life and be a much better wife/mother if I blogged less. But I don't want to admit it. So I'm avoiding taking a break.

Good for you.

Have a great time. We'll be there next week too.
