New shoes, new clothes, and loud music at 5 am

So this is what happened to me this morning at 5 am-ish.

I had coffee. My phone. A blanket. The couch. The TV was on mute showing weather. Quiet. Solitude.

I felt like listening to some instrumental music.

I picked up my headphones, plugged them in, scrolled around my phone to find a song, and start to play it.

I was kind of in a trance…but the music sounds a bit weird. Off, sort of.

Suddenly, I saw my partner in my peripheral vision looking very annoyed. He was yelling at me.

I took my headphones off my head and heard the music coming out of my phone. It only partially went through my headphones…

Guess he heard the music and it woke him up.

Oops. πŸ™ƒ

He’s gonna be grumpy today…

OK, let’s talk about shoes instead.

I took my girl child shopping last night. She wants to sign up for track and field again this year.Β  She says she doesn’t have any athletic leggings that fit properly.

Note to self: check her closet floor and weed out outgrown stuff.

Side note: try not to have a conniption at the state of her room.

Reminder: raise a little hell about the state of her room and take away all devices until it’s cleaned up.

So we went shopping while the boys were at practice. She’s now the owner of three new pairs of athletic leggings. πŸ™‚

Next door to Justice was a shoe store with a sign in the window about a huge sale.

Well I need shoes, among other things, and I still have some leftover money from birthday and Xmas…

These are the ones my daughter pointed to. “You need those for the rink”, she giggled…πŸ™„

Hah. πŸ˜‰

While I browsed a more appropriate area of the store, she snuck away and tried them on herself.

Lol. πŸ™ƒ

I ended up finding, and buying, these ones. 25% off.


Earlier in the day, while running excessive errands and promptly forgetting to pick up my passport at the post office, I also succeeded in purchasing new bras, panties and summer sleep ware. Also a new athletic top, for those brutal, humid summer days when I’m out with my bike.

This is a major accomplishment for me, as I am not a fan of shopping. I need clothes and shoes to wear when I emerge outside of my four walls and, with the upcoming trip to Europe, well, I need to at least look somewhat presentable. I can’t spend the rest of my days in leggings and a hoodie… (or can I? Oh never mind…) 😜

So today, since my dog walking is cancelled, the plan is to head up to the attic, take down the spring and summer stuff, sort and purge through that, and get myself organized (in time for the next snow storm, but whatever).

When spring does finally arrive for good, we’ll be ready.

It’s Friday! Here comes the weekend. Only a couple of rinks I think…
