I got a little down today. No real reason other than I get down from time to time. I got home from work, feeling particularly down, and I saw that Eric was not home. This left me with a couple of options.
a) be a good wife and do the laundry so I’d have underwear for tomorrow
b) be a sweet wife and get some groceries so we’d have food to eat that doesn’t rhyme with Tel Daco…
c) be a bad wife and grab my Diet Coke accessorized with my Maverik Halloween collector’s curly-q eyeball straw…and go to the mall
I NEVER go to the mall. I know you probably think I’m lying but I’m serious. I never EVER go to the mall these days unless I have to buy a bridal shower gift and need to hit up Vicki’s. I don’t buy new clothes, and I certainly don’t have any sort of idea what’s new and hip for fall let alone winter. No I’m not destitute, and I know I have so much compared to so many, but let’s just say that life after marriage includes a lot, I mean a lot, less shopping.
So what did I do? I chose option c. I got in my car. And I went to the mall. I shopped and I browsed, and then, yes then, I purchased. And you know what.
IT TOTALLY MADE ME FEEL BETTER.
I bounced out of that mall with a little extra pep in my step and a twinkle in my eye. And it wasn’t temporary. No, tomorrow morning when I get up and get dressed, I will have something ADORABLE to put on. Then I will wear it for the next three days and I will love every damn minute of it. I will, however, not have any clean underwear or food to eat. But I will still be OH SO HAPPY!
I wish buying new clothes, I bought two items, didn’t make me feel so good, but it really did. And the whole reason I’m sharing this is to say, get out there and do something that makes you feel good. I hope you’re not as shallow as me, but if you are, well, welcome to the party!
I love you all. I hope this week totally rocks! What are you being for Halloween!?
I, of course, am being Lady Gaga.
