Shopping is NOT My Favorite Pastime!

I managed to make it through yesterday and even got to visit some blogs! Days when I have a lot of errands to run are the worst! And I had several items to return. I'm a stickler when it comes to things I buy. I save every receipt. I make an envelope for each week and all the receipts go in there. No matter what it is, if I don't like it I return it! Recently HB and I bought new vitamins. We usually take Centrum Silver but we noticed they had special ones for men and for women so we decided to try them.

I'm one of those people who has LOTS of trouble swallowing pills. So when I opened the bottle and saw the size of them I knew they were going straight back to the store!! The ones for women were much bigger than the ones for men. I might have been able to get those down but no way would I swallow the horse pills for women!! HB said he didn't think they'd take them back because they were open but they did. I've returned all kinds of things....for all kinds of reasons.

And once again for my journal page I used one that I had done some work on already.

June 30:

I just added a couple of stamped birds to the big stenciled bird (can you tell I like that little stamp!) some writing and a sticker and called it done!

Today I began the July A Prompt a Day with Kelly Kilmer. I love having a prompt each day. It makes me think a little more about what I'm doing.

This one is so true. I'm all about comfort. In my younger days I loved to shop for clothes but now it seems harder and harder to find anything that I can wear. I'm not about to wear skimpy little tops and clingy fabrics. Do designers think everyone is 16 years old? I wish there was a place to find nice looking clothes that are age appropriate. And why do they insist on putting horizonal stripes on larger sized clothes?? And huge pockets right on the front of shirts? I sure don't need pockets on my boobs! What on earth would I carry in them? My other pet peeve is sleeves or the lack of. Most of the sleeves on tee shirts wouldn't cover my shoulder! I don't need to have my upper arm exposed to the world! It's bad enough that I have to see it. Are clothing designers just sadistic? I don't understand why it is that with people getting bigger why clothes are getting smaller. And if there are so many baby boomers out there why are all the clothes made for teenagers. I'm sorry to go off on a rant but this is one of my major gripes!!

Now that I got that off my pocketless chest, I'll end this little tirade and wish you all a great and creative day. Go out and have some fun!!! I'm staying home and playing in the studio.
