Retail Therapy

We all have those moments. We can either, eat, smoke, drink or shop.
I'm too fat to eat, it was too hard to quilt smoking to start up again, I'm too upset to drink, so I went shopping! Yeah, I have those days... and if nothing else works, I put on the snow boots and trek on over to the Burlington Mall for some Retail Therapy.
Yesterday I got new glasses, new Sunglasses, and an estimate on my bathroom remodel. Not only am I blind as a bat but my arm and leg will belong to the contractor effective immediately.
The snow has turned to ice and the ice is hanging over my brand new gutters and it's looking like they might not make it, the bathroom window sprung a leak, the light on my car says "oil change" and my son's trainer took the day off so I drove all the way to the Health Club to bicker with GP who is telling me, "You are not my trainer!" as if I didn't know! I slipped on the ice and fell on my *** in front of my house, and I thought, "That's it! Stick a fork in me, I'm done!" so, I
decided I'd get a jump on Spring and buy some lovelies for myself, some chocolates for grandpa and call it a day. I almost forgot what a crappy week I'm having until I turned on the TV and realized my Direct TV is still not working (Ice on the roof)... but I'm going to finish packing some orders and think of Spring. It's HAS to come soon, I don't know how much more of this I can take! Hope your day was better than mine. May your cable be working, your bathroom not leak, your car light stay off, and your butt stay dry this week, LOL!
Hang in there and remember, if nothing else works, there's always Retail Therapy!

You are too funny. Your bag is lovely. That would certainly help my mood. I feel your pain. We have the same situation with our gutters. Everyday I look to see if they are still hanging in there.

Brenda..so sorry you are having a bad week. The winter seems endless!!! We got more snow last night, but at least we don't have a lot of ice, yet. Monday afternoon, I went to the quilt shop for a bit of retail therapy...just what I needed! Hope today is better!

We all need a little 'perk' now and then.

I just started following your blog-I am a facebook fan. I want you to know your son is so handsome-I decided to follow you because I enjoy quilting, knitting, etc and love fabric color and retail therapy! I have a sister who is autistic and I am a retired special ed. teacher.
sorry about the lack of a picture-no one has shown me how to do one yet.
