One Thing I Don't Like About Real Life

Real Life as opposed to the 24/7 Caregiving life in case anyone is wondering what I mean.

My post about offices and desks started me thinking and then when I arrived at the office the other morning I had a flash of insight.

I don't like having to dress every day for work. And I mean by that putting slacks or jeans on with a shirt and belt and having to carry around my money and my billfold and keys and all that stuff.

I miss my exercise shirt and shorts wardrobe.

On the other hand I do enjoy going to lunch and most places expect some kind of dress above exercise shorts.

Oh!!! Happy Valentines Day out there to all my blog friends, too.

My Judy is a Saxophonist so I hunted all over and found her this really nice (I think) pin out of 14 K gold that's shaped like a Saxophone.

It has little diamonds and rubies on it.

I gave it to her last night and she said I did a really good job.

Hard to find things shaped like Saxophones but I've managed to locate a few.

I love the pin! It's perfect for a musician. No doubt Judy loved it. Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Aww thats really pretty. I am glad she liked it. Your good to her and I am glad to read about that anytime. It beats a lot of the stuff I see around this world. Take care and have yourself a good V-day.

beautiful pin. Good job Terry.

I hate getting dressed too so I don't. I even go to church in jeans and a t-shirt. I really don't think God cares.

What a beautiful pin. It looks like a Swarovski piece? Now if I see saxophones, I will be reminded of Judy. My daughter played bari sax in h.s, btw. What does Judy play?

Judy plays Alto Sax. She played in high school and her dad bought her a really nice Selmer Mark VII back then. I bought her a new Selmer Hummingbird in 2006. She won a bunch of medals in high school and then didn't play for a long while. She resumed playing a number of years ago and it has proven to be a wonderful blessing.

When she was just beginning years ago it was considered nearly scandalous for a woman to play the Sax. I thought that was funny plus I didn't know it.

I meant Mark VI actually although her dad also bought her a Mark VII.
