I did a bit of online shopping, this morning. I received an Amazon.com gift certificate and decided to use it.
Later, my friend Jennifer and I girded our loins and hit the streets. Shoe Pavilion was a disappointment. They are having a slipper sale but, I don't consider $30 a good price for a pair of slippers. On to Factory-2-U: another bust.
Tucson Mall beckoned, as Macy's and Penney's are both having shoe sales. No slippers there but, Penney's had some toasty warm chenille socks - just the thing to wear to bed. I now have one lavender and one deep purple pair.
Jennifer got sneakers for one of her sons, at Payless and I STILL hadn't found slippers to suit me. FINALLY - success at Sear's. Not only did I get a warm pair of Deerfoams ($10) but, a lovely pair of purple velvet baby-doll slingbacks, with a rhinestone buckle JUMPED off of the shelf and onto my feet! When a $55 pair of shoes is knocked down to under $15, one just HAS to buy them.
After this lunch at Red Robin was in order. Thus fortified, we tooled down the street, to the dreaded WalMart. Jen found sneakers for another son, I stocked up on cat food and litter (as did Jen) and Hershey's kisses.
Demolition derby traffic, in the parking lot, finally sent us back onto the streets of Tucson, headed for PetsMart. After dragging Jennifer away from the Humane Society's off-site adoption center (her husband owes me one) and petting every animal in the store, I got a new Booda Dome litter box (in PURPLE).
We were back at my house, by 3. Naturally, my dogs went over us, with noses twitching ("You cheated on us!"), Jen admired the twins' tricycles, transferred her purchase from my car to hers and sped homeward. I collapsed on the sofa, with my newspaper.
Dang, it was a fun day but, I'm not doing it again any time soon.
