Sticker shock: When eyes grow like saucers, your month hangs wide open and your froze for five whole seconds.

Saturday’s trip to Sears was a bust. Couldn’t find a shed. So next weekend it’s off to Home Depot. I went on their website but all I found was custom made sheds which of course cost more than our van.

Macys is a pretty decent place to shop for evening wear (for the Navy Ball) but I never really shop there. I usually go the Exchange, Target or Penneys. I decided to go in because they had a SALE on women suits. Lately I have wanted to upgrade my work attire and started looking at the rack of suits. One rack had a 50% of f the original price. I was about to try on a suit when I saw the price tag. Sticker shock! The price $280 and that was at half price. If I wasn’t in the fitting room with a whole bunch of other women; I would have been cursing like a dirty Sailor. The first thought that entered my mind: Aren’t we were in a recession? Did someone forget to tell these women?

The afternoon was salvaged by lunch/ early dinner at Legal Seafood. I had fish and chips with of course a glass of wine.
Tonight is cookie Sunday. I usually bake cookies and other goodies for the hubby and our friends stationed overseas.
Tomorrow is Monday translation: headache for the next five days. Have a great Monday don’t forget your Advil. Saturday’s trip to Sears was a bust. Couldn’t find a shed.

  1. Try Lowe's for a shed. They offer 10% off with military ID all the time now, not just the holiday weekends like before.

  2. We usually go to Lowes also, Bill likes them better than Home Depot (except that he hates that we have to pay a toll to get there).
    I only go to Macy's when they are having an end of season sale or if I have a gift card; it's really great when BOTH happen. :-)
    Hope you do better this weekend... Later, gater.

  3. I agree with Lowes, we were there last week looking for patio furniture and they had a lot of sheds on display that my girls just had to check out!
