Yesterday was a big shopping day for me. A big shopping day is when I spend more than an hour at it...shopping is not my favorite activity. More than 20 minutes in one store and I start to get all tight in my chest and have to concentrate on doing some sort of calming breathing.
I was really happy when I got home last night because I crossed a lot of stuff off the Christmas list and also picked up some stuff for the house. Imagine my frustration this morning when I found not one..but TWO lousy purchases lurking in my bags. A pretty red sweater that I purchased at Macy's has a hole right in the middle of the front of it...guess I need to examine things more closely...annddd.....grrrrrr....a package that I bought at Rite-Aid had been opened and had half of the contents missing, including the directions.
I'm a terrible "returner" but I'm going to make myself do it today. Oh my, returning something on a Saturday... two-plus weeks before Christmas...now that's going to take some of that breathing I was talking about. I think I'll call my sissy and see if she wants to meet me for a snazzy drink late this afternoon, a reward of sorts for making myself go to the return counter! Should get rid of the "crankys" in an all-fire hurry.
