NSV At 4:30 A.M.

So I couldn't decide what to wear this morning.  Here it is 4:30 in the morning, I've only got a half hour to get ready for work and I'm standing in my closet at a complete loss.  Nothing I had was striking me as something that would get me through the day.  So I had this little conversation with myself:

Me: Self, if I have to wear those black or gray pants one more time...I'm gonna shoot myself in the effin' head.
Self: So wear a skirt.  You never wear skirts anymore. You used to always wear skirts.  For the first year you dated your husband, he only saw you in skirts.
Me: Seriously, you're going to start this now.  You know none of my skirts fit.
Self: When was the last time you tried one on?
Me: (scratching my head in wonder)  I don't know....
Self:  What are you...chicken? 
Me:  Really?
Self:  Bock, Bock, Bock (walking around in my head in classic chicken pecking posture)...  Well, you better go find your pants then.  Clock's atickin'
Me:  *sigh*  Argh!  Fine!

And so I tried one on, size 16...a skirt that even when I did wear it, it was with Spanx or some equally restricting-had-to-be-invented-by-a-male-thinning device.  And IT FIT....And no Spanx required....AND it's even a little big.    Then came the issue of finding a shirt...I did.  A cute little black one that I haven't worn in FOREVER because it shows off my back fat.  Not anymore (at least in my sleepy stupor this morning - I'm sure when I look in the restroom mirror at work, I'll notice the back fat again).  I'm sure I'll get the whole "Why are you so dressed up today?" lines at work today and I hate answering things like that because it makes me feel like I dress like a slob the rest of the time, but I don't care because, Lord help me, I'm wearing a size 16 skirt and it's a little too big!

So I've decided I'm going to post progress pics when I get 50 lbs down.  Only 7 to go... so y'all will just have to wait.  LOL.  My NSV almost made me forget about this horrible sinus headache I've had since yesterday but now that I'm work, I'm reminded and almost nauseous from it.  Ugh.  I just took something...hopefully it'll go away (then again, I took something last night too but it didn't help).  It can't last forever.  Hope you're all having a good Tuesday.
What NSV's have you experienced lately?
