There’s a terrible misconception out there about your life after children become adults. The premise somehow handed down to me was that life is easier…mostly smooth sailing. Well, I have discovered that this is simply not true…the changes in my life after fifty have been fast and furious. It is not all about my children leading me into constant change, but really just all the “life” around me.

I already confessed on this blog one day about how I really do not like change, but like it or not, it happens. Many of you who are early readers know that my husband experienced an economy-related layoff for three years. He is now employed full time, but the experience took us through adjustments which still sit on our horizons today. Suddenly, we are forced to stare into the face of reality which, like it or not, includes aging.

Tomorrow I will discuss how I am currently facing change, but today, my immediate change is finally to have cold weather in San Antonio, TX….WOO! HOO! It is refreshing and feels amazing, but does require a little thought before getting dressed for work.
Layering is very important in Texas. The temperatures may easily be twenty degrees apart from morning to afternoon. Also, just because we get so excited about turning the heater on, heat tends to be a little excessive in the classroom during the day. Here is a look I wore and the layers I peeled off during the workday. The only draw back is that all of this extra padding makes you look like you have extra padding!!

I have really been into Stacy London’s quotes lately…so as she said in her book The Truth About Style…
“Style doesn’t start with your body, it starts with your brain!”
Sometimes, layers just make sense!
See you Wednesday for some talk about change…until then have a wonderful Tuesday!!
