Out with the old . . . In with the new
it’s time for shopping..
I have a robe that is 12 years old, I got it to wear in the hospital after having my youngest. It’s such a comfy robe but I am afraid it’s probably seen it’s better days. You’ve heard that saying “When it rains, it pours”? Well that’s exactly what has happened to me. I went to put on my favorite quick walk to the mailbox sandals and the strap broke. That’s strike two Deb!! Two down, one more to go!! You know that other saying “it comes in threes!” Yes, that is the kind of luck I’ve had these past two weeks.
Finally facing the fact that not only did my favorite robe need to be replaced, but now my favorite sandals too. While I was debating shopping online or fighting traffic and dealing with the crowds at the mall, I remembered that while at the movies a couple of weeks ago, my favorite cardigan also had a malfunction. There you go that’s three!! See what I mean when it rains, it pours. The good thing is that I think I really did my monies worth on those 3 things, 12 years on a robe, 7 on sandals and 3 on the cardigan. Not bad … right?
In with the new . . . shopping done …
I decided to browse online, then go out to shop if I couldn’t find affordable things online. I normally won’t buy online if it’s going to cost me more to have it shipped, than it would cost for gas. First the robe, I knew I didn’t want one with a belt. My last one had a belt and every time I washed it I had put it back through the loops. I found a cute women’s snap front robe, that wasn’t expensive while searching.
I wanted to get everything from the same place, after searching a little while I came across some cute closed toe sandals for women. This is turning out better than I thought it would. Two down now if I can find the new cardigan It’ll be sweet!! A few more minutes and I a cute little tahari simirita ruffle cardigan!! (*dances around the room) After telling the hub’s I found everything on one site and they weren’t expensive, he reminded me that I also wanted some new workout shorts. I know this sounds like a weird request but here’s what I wanted women mesh shorts with small leg hole. Basically the mesh (not really mesh, but that’s what they call them) type shorts you’d wear for working out, and the small leg hole is because I don’t like the wider legged ones. I also don’t like the biker shorts type either.
This was only the start of my down pour, but the rest is for another day. Just thinking about the other stuff wears me out. Regardless it all worked out in the end, so I am thankful for that.
Do you have a favorite piece of clothing, shoes or a bag that has seen it’s better days, but you don’t want to get rid of?
