There’s a terrible misconception out there about your life
after children become adults. 
The
premise somehow handed down to me was that life is easier…mostly smooth
sailing.  Well, I have discovered that
this is simply not true…the changes in my life after fifty have been fast and
furious.  It is not all about my children leading
me into constant change, but really just all the “life” around me.

I already confessed on this blog one day about how I really
do not like change, but like it or not, it happens.  Many of you who are early readers know that
my husband experienced an economy-related layoff for three years.  He is now employed full time, but the
experience took us through adjustments which still sit on our horizons
today.  Suddenly, we are forced to stare
into the face of reality which, like it or not, includes aging.

Tomorrow I will discuss how I am currently facing change,
but today, my immediate change is finally to have cold weather in San Antonio,
TX….WOO! HOO!  It is refreshing and feels
amazing, but does require a little thought before getting dressed for work.
Layering is very important in Texas.  The temperatures may easily be twenty degrees
apart from morning to afternoon.  Also,
just because we get so excited about turning the heater on, heat tends to be a
little excessive in the classroom during the day.  Here is a look I wore and the layers I peeled
off during the workday.  The only draw back is that all of this extra padding makes you look like you have extra padding!!

I have really been into Stacy London’s quotes lately…so as
she said in her book The Truth About Style
“Style doesn’t start with your body, it starts with your
brain!” 


Sometimes, layers just make sense!
  See you Wednesday
for some talk about change…until then have a wonderful Tuesday!!
