shopping as exercise?!?
Sunday, December 12, 2010
I swear...12 hours of shopping had to have burned 1000 calories at least today! My pants got looser & looser as the day went on LOL
My day started out with waking up to snow!
I had plans to meet my sister in law at 930 to go to a big indoor flea market...she called to make sure we were still on- I said of course, I'm not scared of a couple of inches of snow lol. She didn't want to drive in the snow so she had my brother drive her (and later us)
First I had to go get my son from aunt's- he stayed there last night to make an applique sweatshirt for his special school district teacher (he has an IEP for his ADHD- she has been his SSD teacher for 4 yrs and this will be her last as his SSD teacher- a different teacher covers 4th-8th grade at his school)
The road were pretty icky and other drivers were being retarded so I got to Amy & Mikey about 10am- and then we got out to the flea market and it was closed today :( so we went to a farm supply store looking for Carhart stuff for my stepdad and all kinds of other cool stuff (my mom lives on a ranch, the men in my family are hunters- yes we are rednecks and proud of it! LOL)
After that we went to a resale shop- finally found my son some snow boots...camo ones in his size and only for $4! Then we were hungry and had Lion's Choice...not the best but not too bad...Amy & I decided we wanted to do some shopping...Mikey was adamant he was not shopping...and Chase begged his Uncle Mikey to not make him go shopping too ROFL and Uncle Mikey gave in- an absolute first in 9.5 years...which stunned Amy & I- especially since their son was with her mom all day so Mikey was alone with Chase...lol
So Amy & I went to TJ Maxx, Fleet Feet (bought my a hat for Saturday with a ponytail cut out spot! and running gear laundry detergent) Then we went to a children's resale shop and a young mens/women's resale shop...then Marshall's...then the Mall- Macy's, Penney's, Victoria's Secret, Frederick's of Hollywood, Dick's Sporting Goods, and half a dozen other places LOL...lots and lots and lots of walking...lifting (purses, clothes, bags of purchases) and all that work undressing and re-dressing when trying on clothes...
by then we were starving! Amy's stepdad met us at the mall with Austin, her son...we stopped and got pizza from Little Ceasar's and went back to her place...I was good and only had 2pieces of pizza and 2 breadsticks...not the best..but it could have been worse...and with all that "working out" I did today I deserved it LOL
all in all a pretty good day...was able to find a few good things but most of all I had a great time with my sister in law :) who I just don't get to see enough of...
and I hopefully earned some brownie points with my brother by working out a knot he had in his shoulder blade...
and now I need to balanace the checkbook after my day of shopping...yuck.
