For the first time in several weeks, I was able to dress. It felt so good.
I love my family but they're ALWAYS here. My wife really dislikes my dressing and my children don't know so it's very difficult to find time. Today, everyone was gone for a little while so I had a chance to dress.
I almost didn't. I knew I'd only have about 15 - 20 minutes and I'd have to dig my things out of the back of my closet and would it even be worth it for just a few minutes?. Once I did, I knew I had made the right decision. That great relaxed, comfortable feeling came over me and I just felt so good.
I've gained about 40 pounds during the last 30 years so I'm not as slender and semi-passable as I was in my 20s. However, my legs still look pretty good, especially when I'm wearing high heels. We have a full length mirror in our bedroom. It was fun to pose in front of the mirror (and if I kept focusing on my lower half, I looked ok).
It is a little frustrating. Getting dressed is very nice but I wanted to spend much more time as Linda. Of course, I would have liked to put on makeup and a wig and go out as Linda. It's been such a long time since I've been out. Still, it was great to have a little time. I missed it so much. I'm jealous of the girls who can dress several times a week.
