Hah! If you thought this was going to be about a healthy journey in some way, you might want to click off of this blog! This is a part of my healthy journey, however. Today I am determined to be as stress free as possible, but it could be a stretch! We leave for vacation in two weeks and my husband decided last night that he needed to get a few things. My heart sank. I knew where this was going. I already had my weekend planned out - school stuff, gardening, housework. You see, we live in a fairly rural community that while we have a "city" 15 miles away, there is not a lot of shopping choices. He wants to go to the outlet mall 2 hours away. What's the problem, you wonder? I would surely get to go shopping too? True, but my husband is not a good shopper, or at least, shops the way I shop. Each item is looked over very carefully, tried on, and then he usually talks himself out of it for some reason. On to the next store, same thing, over and over again. Then when we get to the other end of the mall (I should also say that this is all outside, not inside), he decides that what he really wanted is at the first store, so we go back. Can we buy it quickly then? No, we have to weigh and reweigh the options again. If I am really lucky, he will purchase it. More likely, not! I am exercising all my patience today and telling myself that this quality, while annoying me today, has saved us a lot of money on big ticket items, as well as being good at his job! So this day is a small price to pay. My head tells me that, but while I am in the midst of it...wish me luck! At least my Fibit will get a good workout today!
