Hot Mess

So I am sick. I feel like I have been run over by a truck. From experience, I have found that I write pretty well when I am not quite with it (I won a city-wide writing award in high school for a story that I wrote when I had the flu - you get the picture). So rather than use this as an excuse to neglect the blog, I'm going to post.

I am a total hot mess. I haven't brushed my hair. I am wearing pink flannel pajama bottoms with french cats on them, an orange paisley hippie shirt, and a cabled sweater. I think I am swaying side to side in total dizziness. The only thing that would make this a prettier picture would be a long, ashy cigarette, but I don't smoke.

I have to go out today and buy birthday presents for my 16 year old son. I've put it off too long and I have no more time. When i leave the house, I plan to look like this:

with a jaunty hairstyle and chic glasses like this:

I'm also going to transform my Easter candy foil covered, toy strewn living room into the living room at Fallingwater.

I'm going back to bed.

Hey There Hot Mess... So sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well :(
If I was close, I'd bring you some hot chicken noodle soup.
Just want you to know I bet you look just as fabulous in your pink flannels as you would in that little blue number. Besides, the fabulous shades would hide all evidences that your aren't well.
Get Better Soon.
(((BIG HUGS)))

I spit my drink out everywhere. I spent my summers at Fallingwater. I can't wait to see your rendition. Feel better! *hugs*

Being a hot mess can be sexy, ya know! That tousled, just got out of bed not feeling so fresh sort of thing can really work for a girl.

Work it! Or, just go back to bed... I'd choose bed if I were you!

I hope you are feeling better, Erin. Not sure how I missed reading your blog this week, but it's been enjoyable reading all of your posts. Your little one is cute, he really makes me smile.
