This is what I wore today:
Shirt from Conversation Pieces (gift from my husband); sadly not recommended; already pilling after one washing. 😦
And what I wore last week:
Sweater from Kohls (now sold out). I had some Christmas Kohls credit and couldn’t resist this sweater. Not my color + hand wash only + sheds on everything < very soft + polka dots!
And here’s my pet peeve of the week: pew end squatters.*
People who get to church early and stake out a spot at the end of the pew. Would it really kill you to scoot over to the middle? Do you really enjoy having me and my young children stepping back and forth across your lap and over your toes, multiple times throughout the hour? Seriously.
I get that some people are elderly and/or have limited mobility, and they have a right to the end of the pew.
It doesn’t help that, in our parish, we have many pious people who kneel and pray after Mass for a long time. That’s fine and dandy, but please ~ look around you~ to see if you’re blocking in your neighbor as you close your eyes and have visions and levitate and whatever you want to do for the next fifteen minutes. Otherwise you encourage the pew-end squatters.
Regardless, if a family with young children approaches the pew, just scoot over. Offer it up. Otherwise, the most charitable thought I can muster is to assume you have irritable bowel syndrome.
Linking up with FL&P today.
*I should add that today we sat next to a very gracious lady who was not a pew end squatter. And I’m very grateful to her.
