I get off work most days around 12:30 in the afternoon. That schedule allows me plenty of daylight hours to get in exercise. But yesterday I elected to take my afternoon and go shopping for some new pants. People have been making comments about my floppy pants at school and my DD took most of my knit pants away from me because "I shouldn't be seen in public in them." So I spent yesterday afternoon, 3 hours, looking for some dress pants. The only thing I found was another pair of jeans. I would have even settled for some black jeans, but nope. 3 hours. I was wasted when I got home and very disappointed in my choices. In one store I asked about 'short' pants and was told that they were only available in sizes up to 14. Really? Heavy people are magically taller. It just goes with how tops for us bigger gals have these gargantuan sleeves, like our arms are extra long or something.
But I digress. I'm getting ready to go back out shopping again today. Not that I want to but I really, really could use a couple more pairs of pants. Maybe something in black or a nice pair of chinos. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
It is now 7:30 in the evening. I shopped until I wanted to drop. 6,000 steps of shopping with my oldest daughter. And I found clothes! Lovely sweaters, Two pair of dress pants, and an awesome pair of cuff boots. And everything was on sale, even better! We ate out and I had a fabulous turkey wrap and some steamed veggies. Got a couple of Christmas gifts too. Today was a good day and I don't mind shopping so much anymore. Whew.
