Fight the Frump Friday...Rock Bottom

I was intending to write a Fight the Frump Friday post today. Cuz it's Friday and junk.

Buuuuuuut, it's almost 12:30 in the afternoon. I'm in my pajamas. Hair greasy and unbrushed. Ditto for the teeth (and let me tell you, greasy teeth are anything but unfrumpy). My socks have holes in them and my face could use some serious exfoliation.

I was sick yesterday, and my daughter came down with a fever last night. I slept pretty fitfully, with her cuddling up to me all night and whispering intermittently, "I love you, Mommy."

It was worth not sleeping.

Anyway, today I've been trying to find a decently priced hotel room in San Fransisco (for the Bossy visit, squee!) that isn't a flea-ridden hell-hole riddled with various drippings from prior visitors. Wish me luck!

So my point is...jut like sometimes you gotta be cruel to be kind, sometimes you gotta revel in the worst grossness your body can create in order to realize just how bad you don't want to be a frump.

I'm hitting Frumpy Rock Bottom here, peeps.

(I must still be a bit sick...I said "squee" and I think I misspelled it!)

  2. Dude, sometimes you need to wave the white flag and let the frump win, yo!

    Rest and get better.

    Frump is totally allowed when you're sick.

  3. oh come on! you're sick AND you have a sick child! If you look put together, then there is something wrong!

    Totally rest up! The grease in your teeth can wait until later. :)

    I'm trying to think of a good but reasonably priced place in san fran (I live just south of there) ... if I think of one, I'll let you know.

  4. I make a motion that when one is sick - one has the right to be as frumpy as one wants or needs to be AND not feel badly about it!

    All those in favor say "Aye!"

  5. I agree with Loralee except I think frump is a badge of honor when you are sick! Good luck with the arrangements...

    I just realised that I half dressed this morning. The pants I thought were yoga pants are in fact pj's... how is that for frumpy?

  7. Are "greasy teeth" the same thing as "velvet-y teeth"? 'cause that's what I'm familiar with.

Brilliant observations:
