Things I shouldn't admit, but I do :-)
I went shopping this afternoon. It was a "treat" to myself, just because! I realized it must have been years since I have actually gone shopping in the mall, the stores were in different places than I remember! Note to self: don't ask "how long have you been here. Did your store used to be downstairs?" When the answer is.....'years ago', you wonder if you "should get out more". I just shop online or at Target usually. Malls are too big, music is too loud and there are infinite decisions to make! At the end of my shopping trip, I actually made a decision and went to pay for my purchase. The cashier asked me to sign the receipt. I asked her, "did I even scan my card yet?". She politely says I have; but I had no memory of it! This is possibly better than the time a cashier stood looking at me wondering how I was going to pay; I had no idea (thankfully my mom was with me that time and helped me figure it out!) But today, I knew it was......time to head home, :-) Of course, it wasn't until I got home that I realized that I had really wanted to get my dear friend a nice birthday card. I made it to a store with cards in it and even made it to the card section BUT I got distracted by the "Mother's Day cards". I wasn't exactly sure how soon that was coming, so I picked a few out for our moms. I never did get that one card I had actually set out to get!! Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?? So, it will probably be years before I venture to a mall again, but I had a nice, nostalgic time while it lasted!
