I'm mostly better from the allergy attack I mentioned last time. I probably won't feel great until the pollen is gone. It is raining today so that will wash a lot of it away, helping me to feel even better. I'm proud of myself for not using feeling puny to cheat. The closest I came to cheating was not getting enough water the two days my throat was so sore. It just hurt too much.
Last night, I decided to try on "The Dress" as it had been several days and I felt as though I'd made some progress. 65MD suggested that if it was still a little snug that perhaps moving the buttons over a tiny bit would make the difference. (He's the smart one.) I agreed and enlisted his help in marking where the buttons should go.
Then I put it on, or as 'on' as it would go. My memory is that it fit better the first time I tried it. I have nothing to prove that, since I didn't measure, take pictures or have any other marker to indicate how close it was to fitting. It was clear that moving the buttons over was not going to make any difference at all. I was and am heartbroken.
It is a little more than two weeks from the wedding. That dress ain't happ'nin' no way, no how. Of course, I shed a tear. Of course 65MD assured me that everything would be OK. It will. I'm just so disappointed. Plus now I have to go shopping. It will be hard to find something in my current size that isn't matronly. UGH! Wish me luck.
