Oh, Ry, your Christmas program is tonight…do you want me to pack you a dress to wear?” {minus 2}

As I put Rylee’s new dress, pink leggings and fancy shoes in the bag on the floor my hair brushes against my face. I tuck it behind my ear and look down…my hair is a hot mess and I’m wearing a puffy vest, a hooded sweatshirt, jeans and an old pair of shoes. Hmm…maybe I should change real quick.

I reach into my reserves…empty.


No fucks left to give.

I shrug my shoulders and walk out the door.

    This is awesome and hilarious and sounds so much like my morning. Yesterday I knew I didn't have any meetings and I had pulled a sweater on that was just laying on my floor to get ready in. When it was time to actually get dressed for work I thought, eh, this is comfortable and Iook decent enough. So I threw on some pants and a scarf and called it a day. No fucks left to give. ;) That's should be a hashtag. Happy Friday!
