Dilemma #1: I've gone from having a job where no one sees me but my kiddos, to having a job that requires dropping one of said kiddos off to school every morning. Where copious amounts of people see me. Grown-up people.
Dilemma #2: I have a woefully inadequate outside-the-house-where-other-grown-ups-can-see-me wardrobe.
Dilemma #3: Doing anything about aforementioned wardrobe requires significant raise, because we can't afford new wardrobe AND school.
Dilemma #4 : There's not much chance of the afore-aforementioned significant raise.
