I was having a rough week. It wasn’t just the week, it was the three months of stress and emotion leading up to this week. I wasn’t sleeping well and my night time regimen had been consisting of 3 ibuprofen and a sleeping pill. Not a good thing. In my every day life I was plugging along. My book got finished, my podcast interviews were started and my website was being built, my blog was less consistent but going well. I was on unemployment and not successfully finding a job, which meant I was able to spend the summer home with the kids which I hadn’t done in 11 years. I was running, meeting friends, taking online webinars and classes. I hope other than D no one knew how much I was falling apart inside. D knew because he sees the worst of me and my stress leaked out in very unattractive bursts of crying, insecurity, raising my voice and wondering if he’d figure out I’m crazy and want to climb out the window in the middle of the night.

My order arrived from Betabrand!!! If you haven’t looked at their website, take a peek. I really super duper like a couple things about them. First – Customer service is off the charts amazing. Seriously I had one question and now I probably know some of the staff better than any of us imagined was possible. They are professional and they’ll work their butts off to help you out. I was looking for something out of stock and they’re keeping me posted on it which is awesome.
Second – the clothing quality is fantastic. If I’m going to spend money on clothes (outside of a thrift shop where I usually go) I want to rest assured it will last a long time. It’s not just how their stuff is made, it’s the fit. One of the places I can get things in a size 4 with a 34″ inseam and the overall fit is always amazing. Continue reading
