Wondering down here if it is easier to pull on slacks sweater then choosing shorts and sleeveless? Does your college student have the new gloves For their smart phones that fingertips let you use a touch phone?

Heck no!  Too many layers to put on means too many choices and too much dithering for me in the morning.  Not to mention, which coat or jacket to wear?  Is it going to be nasty weather, or can I wear suede shoes today?  Do I need gloves?

I love having 4 seasons, but deciding what to wear is not my favorite part of them!

Maybe a little, at least for me, because it's always cold at work, so this time of year I can wear sweaters all the time. In the summer, it's STILL cold in my office, so I try to pick something that I can layer with a cotton sweater, but then we walk at lunch so I want to be able to be cool enough then.  I hope ds20 is not texting/calling much while outside - why not wait til inside?

This time of year it's kind of hard to know what to wear.  2 days ago I finally had to drag out my wool overcoat to wear over a suit.  (I only wear a suit when I have to go to court, otherwise I can dress casual.)  Yet next week it's supposed to be 65.  Sometimes it starts off the day pretty cold then warms up so you can't dress too warm.  I don't like the winter but at least then I know it will be cold all day so wearing a sweater is good. Sweaters hide a bunch of flaws but you have to worry about looking too bulky too.

I think summer is easier, but part of that is having younger kids who need snowpants for recess, boots, hats, gloves etc.  For me, I like winter clothing (especially as I've gotten older, lol, and I'm not as excited about shorts or bathing suits!;)).

Neither dd nor I have a smart phone. Dh just got the iPhone 5 for work after years and years of blackberry and both of us are kind of enjoying playing with it (he's been home the last few days for conferences and our anniversary). Siri is very entertaining!

Happy Anniversary Theresa! I remember growing up we had to have a coat closet for all our kids winter gear. Here my hall coat closet houses luggage ;) I do not have an attic or basement. You have both? I talked my mom into upgrading her phone, she got an iPhone and siri is fun!
