Where it becomes apparent that I am becoming That Lady

Sunday, August 16, 2009
This weekend was a pretty good one. For the first time in weeks- months- maybe even this year, neither Gary nor I had any plans. Thank the Lord, I say. I was bloody exhausted by the time Friday night rolled around.

We ordered pizza (sans chicken!), watched Die Hard 4, and then I lamed out and hit the sack, because I knew I had to be up with the birdies on Saturday.

Why, you ask?

Because tank tops were on sale at Old Navy for $2.

That's right, I planned my weekend around a Door Crasher sale at Old Navy. I got up, got dressed and left the house to arrive at the mall about 30 minutes after the stores opened.

I can see the future, people. In this future I am that lady with the mitt full of coupons, screaming at a woman and trying to grab that last package of 15 cent looseleaf, then promptly being escorted out of Superstore. My un-conceived future offspring are so ashamed.

I left the mall on Saturday with 5 tank tops.

I left my dignity behind.

I idolize you.

I just laughed out loud at work, in my cube-farm, where people give you weird looks. Still, totally worth it.

And don't worry, I've been a dignity-free zone for years, and it seems to be working fine :)

With the 35 bucks I "saved", I bought an adorable green jacket!

...that I promptly spilled sweet and sour sauce on.
