Love it or hate it?
This is the time of year where the reckoning happens - did you splurge during the winter and pack on the hibernating insulation or did you stand firm against all the festive feasts?
I enjoyed the egg nogs, oreos, lasagnas and birthday cakes. I am well insulated, thank you.
Unfortunately, it also drove me to the stores where I had to face the truth. Fitting room mirrors don't allow me to rationalize the extra cookie showing up on my hips or the new jiggle juggle that used to be steady as a rock. Yep, now it's rock n' roll.
I tried on scores of outfits - some of which someone more nefarious than the Grinch switched the bottom half with a size larger than the top and marked hanger indicated which left me having to go back and pick out another set again and again - yep, I got burned more than twice with that scam.
I finally found a something that fit. I was shopping for FIVE hours and only found four outfits.
Think about it; five hours of traveling, gas, looking, trying on and all I got was four outfits? And a sore knee? OUCH
The average of time versus procurement, in a word, sucks.
Today however was a treat.
In 25 minutes I found six pair of shoes!!
Three white, two black and one hot fushia pink.
Can we say "happy" ??
My answer to the question: "I hate shopping. "
Therefore, I go all gung-ho and get it ALL done in one fell swoop, if possible, never to deal or think about it for another whole year.
If I'd stuck to my resolution ( remember, I only made two?) this wouldn't have come to pass but getting old sucks too because your metabolism slows down - which compounds the problem - even though the enjoyment of food doesn't stop.
But that's a whole other issue .....
Soooo, What's your vote? Yea or Nay?
