Goodness. This has been a tough week. All I’ve wanted to do was eat. And eat. And then eat some more. Yesterday, I had candy. I logged it and only went over 4 points for the day (of which I had weekly points available). But ug. I walked on Monday for only about 45 minutes, it was HARD to get through it! And then, my foot was killing me the rest of the day. I know, I should really go see a doctor. So, part laziness and part to let my foot rest, I rested yesterday. Probably not a good idea, but there it is. Today I’m still sitting on the couch. I’m watching The Biggest Loser. Now, tell me: If the whole point is to get people off their asses and exercising and stuff, why the hell do they make this show a whopping 2 hours long EVERY. STINKING. WEEK??? Anyway, I don’t have any need to go out today, so I hope to walk after the show and then do a bunch of housework.
I went out Monday to Old Navy. I needed a gift, as well as a top to wear when we go to the Nutcracker in a few weeks. I found a super cute black and white small patterned shirt and a bright green sweater to go with it. Perfect! I also got a few stocking things and 2 pairs of jeans for Em. After, I checked out Rack Room and Payless, but I couldn’t find anything affordable that was also comfy. Then I went to check out Justice. I’ve only been in there a few times. I went in to get some small little girl play make up stuff and some jewelry for Em’s stocking. Um, yeah. Granted I didn’t look at everything, but why do they have a store for little girls fully of whore-wear? Ug. The only thing we’ve ever bought in there was a set of BFF mood bracelets for Em and her best friend. Yeah, so the other stuff they had was way over-priced for what it was. So I got nothing there.
Yesterday I went to Kirklands to find those mailbox covers. They don’t have them. Then I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond for a blender. I ended up finding that and a few gifts too. Then, it was on to Target. My plan was to buy gifts for the nephew. There’s a few problems with that. His birthday was last month and a week or so before it, his mom sent out an email with his wish list. Of course, she didn’t send it to me, so I only got it once Chris got around to sending it to me. Yeah. So, I used it to get his bday gifts. Well, after we met with Chris’s fam for TG, I sent sister-in-law an email asking that, when they got back in town and she got a chance, to send me an updated list. He had almost all Lego and Nerf stuff on his list and he got a ton of that for his birthday. That was over a week and a half ago that I sent it and I still hadn’t heard from her. Yes, I do things early. But I also request info even earlier, so I feel like I give plenty of time. So, I went to Target with the intention of just finding stuff that I thought he might like, without using the list. I was so freaking lost. I have a little girly girl. Boy’s toys defeat me. I ended up finding a game for him that looks cool and is actually on Em’s list. Then I just gave up. I went home, used his list from earlier and ordered a bunch of stuff, along with a book. Oh well. I’ll stick the receipt in there and his parents can worry about it. I tried to pick cool stuff that I didn’t remember seeing at his bday party, but he got SO MUCH that it’s hard to remember it all. Anyway, that’s the last of my shopping. That order’s the only thing I have left that should be coming in the mail. Everything I have is wrapped and under the tree. I got Em a couple of craft things for her to work on for her friends that we’ll be doing soon.
