Alone in a Crowd

It’s been a long time since I’ve taken the train downtown with any regularity, but my job responsibilities changed about two months ago and now I take the train to Chicago twice a week.  Taking the train makes for a different sort of day than I have when I commute by car to the office in the suburbs. For starters, I have to get out of bed nearly an hour earlier to get dressed and organized and make it to the train station. I wear less makeup when I’m up early. I’m not as concerned about the amount of volume in my hair. The dogs don’t even stir as I move through the house.  I’m allowed to slip out to the garage and drive away without the proverbial creature stirring.

  1. I am soooooo glad that I am not the only one who has days when they don't worry, or are "not as concerned about the amount of volume" in their hair. I worry often if the gawks and hushed comments when Pickles is knocking over displays at the store because she is so disconnected…I often am worried in those moments if people would just ignore us if only my hair was slightly more bouncy and shiny…
