Wear a Dress Tuesday and Red Tomatoes

It's WADT!

Yesterday was pretty much a blur for me.  I held myself together all of Sunday night / Monday morning and completely broke down when I got home.  I slept a lot and was able to cry - something that I couldn't do when I was in the moment and needed to be the chaplain.  I was worried that sleeping all day would keep me up last night, but I was sound asleep by 11:30 and slept through the night, which was really helpful.  We had a educational-heavy day today (meaning not a lot of time spent on the floors and with patients and families), which was what I needed.  I'm still processing.

I have a feeling I am going to be saying that a lot this summer.

Anyway, it was a much-needed Wear a Dress Tuesday for me today.  I decided to pull out a skirt I hadn't worn in awhile ...

Can you believe that I bought this skirt in HIGH SCHOOL?  Am I kidding myself in thinking it is still in style?

Actually, don't answer that.

OH - look down on this picture to the left of my leg.  Do you see what I see?

RED TOMATOES!!!!!  This one is red and the other ones are starting to change as well!  Maybe I don't have a black thumb after all?

I'm off to finish my verbatim and weekly reflection paper.  I would complain about the fact that I'm being forced to write papers after I've graduated, but the reflection is honestly really good for me.  I'm one of those people that needs to process out loud and with other people.

I hope you all had a fabulous Tuesday!

  1. Hey I hear you on the tough shifts...I was there overnight last night and finally came home and crashed this afternoon. I keep missing WADT which suck! Maybe I'll sneak and do my own Wear-A-Dress-Wednesday :)

  2. You look adorable! I hope you're doing okay, I can't imagine how difficult it would be to have to be strong for people all day long, especially dealing with life death. It's good to cry- holding it all in doesn't do anything. To quote one of my favorite movies- French Kiss, when you don't let it out, you "fester and rot." haha :)
