The long wait…

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.
