I woke up today a tiny bit excited because according to the tracking information I've been getting, I was supposed to be taking delivery of two dresses that I freaking ordered!
When was the last time I bought new clothes? Well, okay. I do remember. It was last summer before we went to NC. I bought one on sale new from maybe Sundance? The other pre-worn, as they say, from e-bay. And they were definitely summer dresses and the ones I just ordered have sleeves, one actually corduroy and so I've looking forward to getting them.
And then I got this message when I went to the tracking site of UPS.
Sorry for the swears.
No. I'm not.
So la-di-dah. No dresses. Probably ever. I'll deal with that tomorrow, I suppose. I didn't do it today because I had to go to town.
Not wearing a new dress, by the way.
That damn jewelry store. They insist that they have to have the entire credit card number, along with the verification number, expiration date and billing zip code before they'll give you your money back.
I fumed. But I called my husband and he sent me the information and I got that taken care of. Then I basically crossed a highway to get to the shoe and shadow box stores and I bought nothing in either although it took me over an hour to do that.
And then I was starving and so I went into a shi-shi grocery store where the lights are dim and romantic and, as Lis said once, you feel like you need a hankie because it's so pretty, and I got some sushi and at the check out I grabbed a bag of fancy potato chips for some unknown reason because I never buy potato chips.
Well, almost never.
Not nutritious but cool.
Then I went to the appliance and bed store. Mr. Moon is not entirely happy with our new bed and we have discussed this endlessly. He feels it is too soft so he asked me to go by and talk to them about this and check out the other firmness levels of the TemperPedics.
That took awhile.
Then to the cooking supply store where I returned a pie plate that I had also received for Christmas. I am an ungrateful wretch, aren't I? I made the mistake of looking around and walked out with a new knife. Don't worry, I paid for it.
By this time all of the input and people (many, many of whom were of course maskless) and traffic had me on the verge of weeping but I pulled up my big girl panties, went to Costco and bought Maggie a birthday present and some vodka, and then went to Publix where I bought everything else.
And I will sleep just fine on the new bed which we will probably be soon trading for another. On which I will also sleep just fine.
Zen Glen. He was right. You could just see it in his body, that sheer love of the keys.
Good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, the refrigerator repair man will be here tomorrow. Mr. Moon and I were discussing keeping the extra refrigerator in the hallway for ease and convenience but I doubt we will. As Jessie said when we told her that, next thing we'd have to put a washing machine and an old sofa on the porch.
Some of y'all may not get that. It's a southern thing.
