Ah, instant gratification of walking into a store and coming home with your purchase…
Not if you want a deal!
It took about a month to get these boots from Zulily, but for over 50% off…it was worth it! I have a bad Zulily shopping habit lately. I think I need to step away from the daily deals!
In my defense, I have bought Christmas presents there. Oh, and shoes for my kids and a few articles of clothes. For the last few years I really haven’t bought them much of anything for clothes. I have made most of it for them.
I am TIRED. I really don’t want to HAVE to make them clothes so they won’t be nekked. So…I have been purchasing from stores. It feels very liberating, let me tell you!
I have also been buying new sweaters for me. I have bought maybe two or three a year in the last few years. Our winters are 6-8 months out of the year. Obviously, they get well used. I needed to restock.
Oh, and I have gained 10 lbs in the last two years, so those tighter sweaters don’t fit me quite so well anymore. *sigh*
The slowing down of the metabolism sucks quite immensely. There is no more maintainig the status quo. It is a constant choice of “Do I want to eat that or gain weight?” “How much exercise do I need to do, so I DON’T gain weight?” ”Is it even possible to lose weight??”.
Yes, growing older does certainly have some little zingers for you to deal with.
