I'm sick. I have a cold. It's not particularly bad but it's enough to make me tireder (is that a word - it looks weird) than normal.
And, since I'm just hanging about the house, I've been doing A LOT of online shopping, which as I said above isn't necessarily good for the pocketbook! LOL!
So, what did I buy you ask?
I bought a China blue fleece hoodie from LL Bean because I used to have this particular fleece hoodie and I loved it so much that I wore the zipper out so I took it to the local seamstress and she said it would cost 40 dollars to put a new one in and since the hoodie didn't even cost that much, it seemed like a waste of money. And, LL Bean had it on sale for $23.99 so I HAD to buy it, right?
I also did some shopping at Avon where I bought a wallet on a string because my over the shoulder small purse that I've been using for the last 10 years is falling apart and this wallet was less than $10 so I HAD to buy it, right?
I also bought at Avon, an Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Sparkling Blush. The lady at the drug store told me that a sparkling lipstick has the look of lipgloss but the staying power of lipstick and it's usually got more moisturizer in it so it's better for your lips so I HAD to buy it, right?
And, Avon also had these great 3-in-1 lipstick, gloss and liner that all match each other to take the guesswork out of choosing the right shades yourself so I bought 3 of them in Berry, Red and Delicate Rose.
And, I bought this nice watch (see photo) because the one I have now (which I love, by the way) can't be made smaller because I've had it for about 20 years and the jewellery store lady told me that the watch would fall apart if they tried to reduce the size so eventually, as I lose weight, I'm going to need a replacement and I really liked this one:
I picked the gold-plated one. Nice, eh? And, here's a photo of my current one:
And, because I spent so much money, they're sending me two "free" gifts!
I also did some shopping at Lands End where I bought a new nightgown because my current one is getting thin. My new one is red; my old one was blue. I also ordered 3 long sleeved t-shirts in purple, blue and red and I ordered a blue pinstripe shirt/blouse.
And, my final online shopping stop was at Collage Video where I bought Karen Voight's Quick & Slim Cardio, Michelle Dozois' Rockin' Body Cardio Jam, Work Out: One-On-One with Jackie, Kelly Coffey's 30 Min. to Fitness: Kickboxing and The Firm: Get Chisel'd.
And, all that shopping just about maxed out my online credit card so I'm done but oh, shopping online can be so much fun and addictive so I HAD to buy, right???

As a Community Team member, I'm supposed to post at least one blog a week and since I haven't posted one for almost two weeks, I figured I better post one.
So, today we're celebrating Thanksgiving and my Dad's birthday because next weekend, which is the Canadian Thanksgiving, one of my sister's is going camping and my Dad is going to another sister's cottage for the weekend.
My Dad turned 79 on Wednesday so we're combining that, too. It's a potluck and the sister hosting is making vegetarian chili and pulled pork sandwiches, another sister is bringing Caesar salad, another sister is bringing some kind of eggplant dish and I'm responsible for dessert so I'm bringing an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen.
Here's hoping that it doesn't rain all day but it's calling for it.

So, I wore my new jeans today, the ones that I had to buy in size 20 because the ones I bought in size 18 in the spring are still too small. But, these jeans are too big. I really just need a size 19 but of course, they don't make those!
So, I told my husband all this and he said "you have a 19 inch waist?" LOL! I said "I wish"! And, then I had to explain women's sizes to him.
And, one of my friends at work said that I should get a belt. I've never used a belt on pants in my whole life! I said "A belt? That's just one more thing that I'll have to undo when I have to go to the bathroom!" LOL!
