Over the weekend, I went on a major shopping spree. I was happy to find just about everything on a list I'd been building for a couple of weeks. And yes, I left the house without the list. So, this was all done by memory. Which is why there are some items missing and some items that found their way home with me, by happenstance.
It looks like I'm pretty much set in the cargo shorts area. Work attire, you know. I don't know where all my clothes have gone, but I seem to have given away my spring/fall dogwalking garb. Luckily I've put on this 'womanly' weight because I now totally fit into the small men's shorts. I was at a total loss in the women's department. Short-shorts are just not for me. They may look cute, but they are foreign and feel uncomfortable on my body. So, yay me, in men's cargos.
If you look closely in the picture, you can see all the unmentionables that made their way in my freshly organized drawers. The socks are too big. So are the undies & tanks, but they'll shrink (or I'll expand). Ha! Whatever.
The brown sandals are comfortable. I love the watch. And believe it or not, I love-love-love the black shoes! Granted, I don't have anything to wear them with, but I love everything about them. Plus, Payless was having their "BOGO" sale (Hey, I don't make this shit up). So, the black shoes were like, seven bucks. They looked adorable with those orange shorts but you know, that just seems so...wrong.
The day had gotten to me. Hours had passed. I only meant to be out for an hour or so. I started to feel weak and shaky, so I headed down the junk food aisle (the only food aisle in Target). I saw Pop Tarts and jumped at the chance. They didn't have the exact kind I was drooling for. But this other brand did, so I went for it. Now I can honestly say, when it comes to Pop Tarts - accept no substitutes. I shouldn't be eating this crap anyway. But if I'm gonna go for the crap, I might as well go for the good crap.
The purse ... may go back. I like it. I mean, I like the idea of it. I went looking for a wallet and left with a purse. What's my deal? This would be great if I were a purse carrier. But I still need a wallet. The theory in this purse is that the wallet is that whole front section. There are slots for credit cards, license, currency, etc. Still, a pain for me when I just want to toss my wallet in my backpack (like, just about every day). I haven't completely given up on the idea though. So, we'll see. So far, it's a nuisance.
I bought a few things to prepare for my new apartment living. The jury's still out on a few things. (i.e. If I'm moving. If my roommate's moving out). No matter what happens in my living situation, one thing remains consistent: I will still have to wash dishes. To cheer things up a bit, I bought one of those sponges where you put the dish liquid in the handle. Big purchase. Commitment.
Working a lot this week, and next (and probably all weeks to follow). I think I mentioned, it's the beginning of the busy season. I had a great hike this morning. I'd forgotten what that felt like. It's nice to wake up to a serene, quiet workout. Tomorrow (Tuesday) will be busier than today. Plus, I'm scheduled to get my hair cut. That's exciting. But I'm already exhausted and worried I won't make it on time.
I'm not used to getting up early. I don't take too well to alarm clocks. I usually set them wrong, because I'm not used to them. So I've asked a friend to help me out with a wake-up call at 6am. In this moment I'm wishing I asked for 7 instead. Since she's in a different time zone, she'll already be at work and ready to YakYak in my ear, till I'm good and awake (or pissed off).
What else? I'm tired. I still have thirty minutes of grooming to complete before settling comfortably into bed. (body, face, teeth) I never knew flossing could feel so gratifying. Especially now with this new floss. And I love the feeling of my face after a good mud mask and toner made by my facialist. I haven't even mentioned Egyptian Magic. I've had this same jar for years. I'm finding it to be the best cure for eczema. It's a great moisturizer. And I know it's supposed to be a great scar healer (which is why I took it out of the cabinet in the first place). Go to their site and read the testimonials. Pretty cool, I must say.
That's it for now. If I weren't so tired, I might try to put this into some kind of coherent order. But if I don't post now, I won't post at all.
Good night folks. Hope you are all well.
