Sure doesn't seem that long ago that I was wearing pantyhose and strutting around the office in high heels.  I always liked the sexy sling-style shoes with the strap in the back.  Well, there's definitely been an earthquake somewhere, cuz now I'm more interested in low shoes with gripper bottoms and velcro ties.  As for wearing pantyhose.......well, I'm never again gonna have to worry about 'getting a run' cuz I ain't ever gonna wear 'em again.  Along the line somewhere I've managed to gradually amend my standards to fit my comfort zone, and there's no doubt that these new standards fit me better than they ever did. 

"Age has given me what I was looking for my entire life--it gave  It provided the time and experience and failures and triumphs and friends who helped me step into the shape that had been waiting for me all my life...I not only get along with me most of the time now, I am militantly and maternally on my own side."  -Anne Lamott
