It's Not My Fault!
Gone are the days of forever sunshine and warmth upon my face. Gone are the nights of running 2 miles at 9:30 PM in pure sunlight. Gone are the days that my boys play FOREVER outside and come in sweaty and physically exhausted from playing 18 freaking hours of pure sunshine. Now I feel as though I am racing against the clock to beat the last ounce of sunshine from disappearing behind the mountains before I arrive home. They tell me that this coming weekend I. WILL. LOSE. It has started to turn cold and all of a sudden I just got the blah's. It doesn't help that a certain you-know-who has ventured off to Thailand for 18 FREAKING DAYS! I will forgive him for leaving me in about 10 years or so. Ugh. (Dramatic sigh inserted here. You can even go as far as imagining me throwing myself to the floor for full effect.) After my courageous send off yesterday at the airport and one step shy of screaming to security that they needed to check the bomb in his backpack and 2 steps from declaring an International crisis in Bangkok to prevent him from going, I slowly turned my attention to work...not really. OK, kind of. I ran to several accounts to talk about, you know, work stuff, and, oh? Am I boring you? Me too. Somehow I discovered the cutest little store while I was out and about. What a coincidence! I parked right in front of it and it just amazingly SCREAMED my name as I got out of the car. I didn't take my purse with me as I grabbed my work stuff to visit the office NEXT DOOR. As I walked by, its magnetic force field pulled me right through that there door. "I'm safe, no purse!" I walked around the store...touched everything, TWICE, became best friends with the girl who worked there as we talked about increasing foot traffic for the cutest store in the world. I found a few things as my gaze kept glancing towards the car which holds my purse just through the huge window. I'll just try on a few things. How innocent is that? They were perfect and as I put my coat back on and I slipped my hand into my pocket, I found my bank card resting peacefully, almost shivering from lack of usage. I am the luckiest girl in the world!!! I have NO need for these cute, adorable clothes. It's too close to the holidays! What about that trip to Scotland coming up in December? Perhaps someone shouldn't have left for Thailand! I am so blaming him!
