The Anatomy Of This Mom...

For those who celebrate, happy New Year.  With today being Rosh Hashana, the start of the new year according to the Jewish calendar, I felt it would be a perfect time to come back to blogging.  Things around my coordinates have been crazy lately... I am in school 3 days per week, work at the hospital 3 days per week...that only leaves me one day to get my bearings, study, spend time with the boys...take a deep breath...There really needs to be 9 days in a week...please.

I am kind of going through a bit of an identity crisis at the moment and I plan to use the new year to get back to being me...not what I think everyone sees me as, thinks I am, or wants me to be... I am stuck somewhere between taking a patients vitals...studying the bones of the skull...helping the boys with their homework and relaxing on the couch with my husband to catch up...I need to just start being ME again...

So, besides showing my style and talking about fashion, I plan to use my corner of the web to vent...sort out what I am doing and where I am going...physically and mentally...

For the Rosh Hashana services today, I could just not figure out what to wear.  I am getting so good at dressing up my jeans, that I think I forget that I used to love wearing dresses and skirts...




Skirt-Target/Sweater-Old Navy/Shoes-Kenneth Cole/Jewelry-Old Navy, Target, Groopdealz

So this outfit...pretty much a copy of what I used to wear to work back in the day when I actually had an office job to go to.  Wearing this today made me feel good, remembering a part of myself that I thought I had lost...somewhere between a patients room and the anatomy lab...

Welcome back lady, looking good as always! I totally understand--it's hard sometimes not to lose yourself in all of the busy parts of life. Hope school and work are going well!

You look great! I love the blue skirt with the green shoes. I'm glad you're back! And I know exactly what you mean about needing to feel like yourself again. I hope you are able to find some "you" time out of your very busy schedule.
