Have I mentioned my hatred for shopping? I hate it. Unless of course it's for groceries, kitchenwares, or for books. I could do that forever.
It's getting colder outside. There are all sorts of good things about losing weight. But let me tell you the bad thing. You have no clothes. So, what's a girl to do. I had to shop. My little skirts, crop pants, and t-shirts aren't going to keep me warm this winter. Of course, I have hopes that Mr. Crush will. But I can't wear him to work ~ although, I really wish I could :-)
Anyway, back to shopping. I went to Ross and got 3 pants and 3 shirts ~ all for $69.00. Not bad, I thought. Oh, and small victory for me. I actually tried the clothes on first. I hate that ~ although not as much as I used to. But I still have a tendency to pick myself apart and look for what's wrong, versus what's right. I'm working on it.
Next, I went to Borders since I was right next door. Was on the hunt for Hundreds of Years to Reform a Rake. No luck there. So, continued on.
Next, were Costco and Walmart. Groceries ~ yay! I love grocery shopping ~ hate walmart. People check their manners at the door. Although tonight wasn't bad. No lines, no waiting. I was in and out in a flash. Costco was a bit busier, but it's okay. I bought a few Christmas presents, a few groceries, and a lovely crate of pomegranates. Yum!
Barnes & Noble was on the way home, so I figured "why not?". They had the book I was looking for (no wonder they're my favorite!), plus I was able to pick up a book for kiddo for Christmas.
On the reading front, I'm halfway through Caine's Reckoning and can I just say "WOW"? I've never read a Sarah McCarty before, although I've had Mac's Law on my wishlist forever. But, for those of you who love Sarah, I doubt you'll be disappointed with this one. I'll definitely have to read a few more of her books ~ if her others are as good as this one, she may become an auto-buy for me.
On the health front, my next CT scan is Friday. More waiting, and then I should know (or not know ~ which just means more waiting) by the middle of next week. Is it bad that part of me hopes that there is a change so that they do have to do surgery? Just because if they have to go in there anyway, can't they just scrape this lump off my ribs? If not, that's okay too. Then it'll just be more monitoring, more blood tests, and more waiting. Ugh.
