So yesterday morning, when my puffy eyes finally opened and I got my clammy body out of my damp sheets, I did what any girl on the brink of losing her mind would do -- I went shopping!
It started off as a harmless trip to Target. I had seen this lamp in Atlanta and wanted it for my apartment. It costs $29.99, exactly the amount of credit I had on a little gift card, so I wasn't actually spending money. I took only two shopping bags with me to make sure I was limited in purchases, just in case.
But when I walked in to the shopping center at Columbia Heights, I remembered a Marshall's was on the first floor. My mind raced -- What do I need at Marshall's? Something...something...a new journal? That'll do! I walked over and began browsing.
A new suit? No, I just bought a new suit. Point 1 for Practical Me!
Baby clothes! Oh yeah, Joy just had a baby girl. She needs at least two outfits from me for sure.
Ooh, votive candles, those are always necessary.
And then, I saw this:
DKNY watermelon leather satchel
(Obviously I bought it because it's hanging in my closet with my other bags.)
Okay, but before you judge me, check this out:
I couldn't find a journal, but hey, I saved five bucks!
Oh, the Target lamp. They were out. So I have to go back today. And, um, I spent my $30 credit. And some more. (I'll take some of the stuff back when I get the lamp.)
Anyway, Sarah bought a gorgeous Coach bag that she got an amazing deal on during her first week of unemployment, so I figure this is all part of the process. (What is "the process" you ask? Not sure, but I'll let you know when I find out what I'm talking about.)
Last night at 3:48 a.m. I woke up to bed wetness again. Ceiling leaking. Again.
I finally dragged myself out of bed at 11:30 the next morning, and my lovely roommate had left me breakfast:
(The keys are for our neighbor's apartment since we are dogsitting Bailey.) (And yes, I said breakfast.)
So today I will launder all my bedding -- again --, eat another cupcake because it's 2 p.m. now and I'm feeling hungry, go see if my lamp came in, watch "New Moon" because I still haven't seen it (stupid swine flu), and possibly start training for a 5K. 'Cause I'm gonna need to burn these extra cupcake calories.
