Shopped Until I dropped

My aunt and I had a very full day.  We left around 9:15 this morning and went shopping in Albuquerque.  We started at Dillards.  I didn’t really find anything there that I was interested in, but after that we went to the new Kohl’s that opened.  My aunt gave me a coupon for 15% but if I spent more than $100, I would get an additional 20%.  I ended up getting a new winter coat that I really liked that was on sale for $79 but I also got 3 pairs of pants and 4 sweaters/tops.  I spent way too much money, but I didn’t feel very bad because I didn’t do any back to school shopping before school started AND because everything I bought was a size smaller that I’m used to wearing.  I’ve gotten back down to the weight I lost last year with the biggest loser challenge – the full 20 pounds.  We’re starting the challenge again this week so I’m hoping I’ll continue to lose some more.  I didn’t buy a single XL top.  They were all large and the pants were a size 14 rather than a 16. My aunt did have to hem two pairs of the pants though – because I’m at that annoying height where petite/short is sometimes too short and average is too long.  After Kohl’s we went to Hobby Lobby where I picked up some rosary making beads and then we met my aunt’s husband and my sister and her husband for lunch at Olive Garden.  It was wonderful as always.  After that we went to Target where I finally got another audio cord so I can play my mp3 player in my car.  My aunt filled my car with gas before we headed back and I had to put some air in my tires as the warning light had come on signaling that they were low. 

I had grand plans to get some library homework done this weekend, but it just didn’t happen.  I’ll try to leave somewhat early tomorrow and then spend some time on it tomorrow.  I printed about 150 pages of stuff I’m supposed to read for class.  I feel perpetually behind.  And I’m up way past my normal bedtime right now.  I feel rather tired and should head to bed soon.  Last night I took a benadryl and slept pretty well.  I may have to do that again.

Wow, sounds like you had a very busy day. I'm so excited for you on the weight loss. It's a tough journey but so worth it.
