My plan was to leave the house by 9:30 AM, get to the store, grab my hubby’s present and hightail it home before I even noticed I was gone.
FAT Chance of that happening.
I left at 10:40AM, a little more than an hour later than I originally “planned”.
Good news is I got 2 loads of laundry washed, dried, folded and put away. Yeah!:)
Got dressed, made my bed (pulled back the covers actually) and remembered to run a comb through my hair.
I was happy with my plan, even if starting out a little later than I thought. The store I wanted to go to is one city block away, about 10-15 minute walk. Made it in record time…beautiful warm day today!
Head straight to the men’s clothing department. Up and down the aisles I go…don’t men need/want/buy pj’s etc.? And how come this store doesn’t sell men’s bathrobes? What the hell! Now I’m kinda pissed off ’cause I gotta go to a different store. OK. There’s a mall right across the street, one block down from here.
I saw exactly 2 men’s warm winter bathrobes in the whole freakin’ mall. Both on clearance. One was a gigantic size 40…we are little people:) The other was smaller but such a hideous green that I would be ashamed to wrap it for the old guy:) His wish list is freakishly small…one warm bathroom and one portable scanner (which my son wisely put dibs on buying immediately).
OK. Terry robes look alike, whether they are for a man or woman. Off to the ladies sleepwear department. Whoa!!! Tons of bathrobes here! Now to find one masculine enough that he won’t suspect it’s a ladies bathrobe. Ah. Here they are. White, heavy terry spa like robes….long. And there’s a large (I figure a ladies large should fit him ok, right?). Off to the cashier before I change my mind. $73.00!!! And this one is on clearance? WTF. Whatever. I need to go home now!
Marching through the mall, full of people in my way. Move it…come on…I’m coming through. Sheesh!
Oooo….pretty bright colours. Sign says $5.00 deal. Gotta check it out. Scored two fabulous bright spring cotton sweaters for $5.00 each. Sweet.
My feet hurt. My head aches. My back hurts. My neck aches too.
Head straight to the nearest exit. Light up a smoke.
My feet are flying me home.
Will I never learn? Gotta stop waiting until I have no choice (the birthday is tomorrow!). I could have ordered something really nice online. Shit.
There’s always next year LOL
