So basically everyone has trouble finding clothes that fit right?
God I'm so jealous of DH, he's not all that tall for a dude....like 5'10 and can walk into shopko or walmart and basically grab a pair of jeans and leave. Doesn't even try them on and they fit because he's knows his waist number and inseam number.....and doesn't have hips to work with. I hate that ours come in petit, average or tall.
I just sent my MIL an email asking her to leave the perfume at home for thanksgiving. Last time she visited it took about 5 days and me washing all bedding and towels in the guest room and bathroom or it to stop smelling like her perfume. It was like it was stuck in the carpet. I also had to give Cosmo a bath because she smelled like her grandma after being snuggled by her. We already make her go outside to smoke or in the garage (which was almost set on fire last visit but I think that wouldn't happen again). I thought she would take a hint after I started flipping on the fans and coughing but it didn't work. I really hope she doesn't take it too personally...this is what I said ...
Yeah Thanksgiving will be here soon. Like three weeks! You can bring whatever you want....though we do have one request and that is maybe the perfume can be left at home? The less we are around things like that, the more it seems to irritate the allergies and asthma. It's annoying to be so sensitive to smells...that bottle of shampoo and conditioner I got to try when we were at shopko last time....I thought I could tolerate the smell but it turns out I cannot and am probably going to have to toss/get rid of both.
I hope that she doesn't take it wrong...though she's known me for 13.5 years now and knows I can be a PITA sometimes. Years ago I said I couldn't eat the meat for dinner unless it was defrosted properly. That got some eye rolls and I know they all thought I was weird and would be like well nobody in the house has gotten sick before. But I'm picky about food safety and they did start defrosting the meat in the frig when I was eating over.
