Bathing Suit Shopping-UGH!

I wasn't going to go buy a new bathing suit.  After all, I have a few.  Okay....a LOT.   We are going on a little long weekend cruise soon, and the weather has been so warm here lately.  So I thought I better take stock of what I had, and see if I really needed to go buy a new suit.
See those two bottom drawers?  They are designated for my bathing suits.  I have a few.  Um, a lot.  I love the water.  And no matter how "fluffy" I am, I will always enjoy the water.  These don't all fit me. Most do.
But I am hanging onto some of my favorites, in hopes that they will, after I finish shedding my winter coat.

The drawers aren't even empty.  I left the two pieces in there, because there is no way I am putting those on!!  I tried on all the tankinis and one pieces.  Bleh!!!  I hate them.  All of them.  I think what I really need is a new cover up.  Since that is probably what I will be sporting by the pool.  Even though I have lost a little weight, I haven't been able to to exercise much with my bum knee.  So I feel FLABBY!!   I am thinking more and more about getting myself a spray tan.  You know what they say..... If you can't tone it...TAN it!!
And one more thing.  Snacker is MUCH improved today.  SO much better.  Today she took meds three times by hand.  I set her on my lap, and wrap a towel around her, like a bib, and coax her beak open to squeeze as much of the antibiotic in.  Then, tonight when I went to put her in her box I have had her sleeping in the past few nights, she wanted to roost instead on one of the open roosts in the coop.  I think she is going to pull through.  I think she is in fact, Super Snacker!!!

I'm thinking of shopping for my new bathing suit at a costume store--you know, the kind of suit they wore at the turn of the century (last century)!!

Glad to hear that Snacker is improving!!

Best,
Bonnie

I prayed for Snacker. I think I heard God laugh at me. He probably doesn't get a lot of prayers for poultry. So glad she's doing better, I've been worried. Now, I have two swim suits. I am not planning on buying anymore. I can't stand the pressure. I would only buy another if it went to my knees and had sleeves. I'm going to be very fluffy when I get to California. Get used to it.

Hi Kris, You made me giggle with this post-although I don't have more than two suits I desperately want a new one. Only problem is that I usually find mine in the Islands-and we aren't going for another year. I have seen some cute ones at Lands End and may have to try those. You're right about fat/flab looking better tan than white.
So glad Snacker is doing better.
Hugs today, Noreen
