Can I just say I'm exhausted!!??

I don't think I can take this much more!!  I had to CHOOSE what to wear to work today!  WTH?Everyday, I get up, put on the ACU's (that new camo stuff), my boots (best.secret.EVER) and go to work.  Been doing this for 23 years.  Works for me.   This is why God put me in the Army.  With the exception of the stupid velcro, the new uniforms are kinda like wearing pjs.Last night I get a voicemail to come in in "soft sell" civilian clothes.  I actually had to choose between the red polo and the blue polo.  Khaki's or navy blue pants.  I CANT TAKE THIS!!  I'm exhausted.  How do you people do this everyday?I'm so not ready to retire.  I don't know how to dress myself in the mornings!Muffin's mom and ck think they are "oh so overworked" this week because their DD's are getting married.  Well, I had to pick my own clothes out!!!(Dear God, someone who doesn't know me will read this and think I'm crazier than normal).Ya'll have a great day.  I'm going for coffee.

    Thank you for the smile. I wish I had a uniform some mornings and basically have red ,blue, green tops that go with all my tan or black pants

    You're right km. Nothing we have compares to picking out clothes---and I'm not being sarcastic!! When I was still working, 'business casual" were the 2 most hated words in the english language. BTW, how long would it take to get the tanks to AZ?

    I can have them there by Friday if you promise I get to watch a Jersey girl take down her FSIL.

    LOL kmm. I (seriously) pick out my clothes the night before for that very reason. I don't want to start my day figuring out the dress for the day. There are days I'd LOVE a uniform. (But I confess that the boot thing would do me in-I do love fabulous shoes......) ;)
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146

    Trix - my feet scream when someone gets married, buried, or I have an event to attend.  I put my feet in the heels and they scream WTH?

    Sweet! I'll even take him down at the ceremony if you want! I am a boot girl...but I don't think we're talking about the same kind of boots here. Army wouldn't go for stilettos would they?

    You can borrow mine, no worry.  BTW wedding cake is my fave food in the intergalactic universe.  I get a piece, right?

    oh, and trix---how do you keep yourself from changing your mind in the AM? I can't pick out my clothes the night before because I don't know what I'll feel like wearing. It might be a red day instead of purple.

    Of course. Do you want spice or chocolate raspberry?
