I have no idea what to wear to the class party at someplace called "Landmark Bar and Grill" in downtown Chicago. I looked at the website and it looks kinda fancy-ish. I have never been into clothes or fashion and being so overweight certainly limits my options. My wallet does the rest of the limiting, so I am clueless. What's appropriate?
Many of my classmates have incredibly successful careers and I'm three years deep into stay-at-home mommyhood. Normally, this stuff is only a slight twinge of insecurity niggling at the back of my brain. Going out to NU and mingling again with these people I shared classrooms with a decade ago is making me feel less and less good about myself. It's like my own, private Romy and Michelle. I promise to refrain from taking credit for inventing post-its. I think we had them already when I was there anyway.
I hate this. I think the only parts I'm still looking forward to is hanging out with the people I still count among my friends and the football game.
