Last night sucked the big one! I was in the mall for over 2 hours. Here are the highlights:
- H&M apparantly is made to fit abnormally small women, I couldn’t even get a 14 dress zipped up around my rib cage
- any dress that is not skin tight is matronly looking
- everything this holiday season is completely covered in sequins. I am not sequin people.
- I got stuck in the same shirt 5 different times while trying to figure out how it went on.
- I bought a pair of Liquid jeans in dark wash to wear tomorrow night. I have no top to go with.
- I bought a lovely tapestry skirt and a necklace. I have no top to go with.
I came home after the 2 hours that I spent buying the one pair of jeans and one skirt and told Ray that I was cancelling my gym membership and that we were going to immediately start existing on take out because it apparantly makes no Goddamn difference how hard I work, I can’t fit the clothes anyway. Now….this is not the first time that this has happened to me, I actually have a really hard time shopping. I’m not sure why. I have about 10 pounds that I can lose. 10 pounds should not make the difference to being able to shop in the mall. I am frustrated. Going to skip dinner with Ray’s mom tonight and go to a different mall and see what I can find. It’s a lower end mall which hopefully means more average person stores, less high end?
Last night when I got home we went out for sushi to I Love Sushi. It’s pretty darn good for what it is. I’ve had better but for the price point and the location it’s my favourite place to go, hands down. My plan was to have one roll and bring the second one for my lunch today. But….we got to chatting and munching and before I knew it, both of them were in my belly! I should never have ordered both, I could eat sushi until my tummy bursts, the taste and texture are addictive to me. Duly noted, Self, be wary of sushi!
Tomorrow night we’re having the holiday party for our motorcycle group. I’m not really looking forward to it, I won’t be drinking tonnes and they’re serving a pre-done turkey dinner which I am NOT thrilled about. That is a huge meal for a holiday party and when something is premade, it’s not like a buffet where you can choose how much of everything you get (eg, veg and turkey instead of getting served a tonne of mashed potatoes and stuffing and gravy. Especially after the bad taste left in my mouth about yesterday’s shopping disaster I’m not really feeling the “celebrate with food, eat whatever you want” mentality right now…not at all.
I’m going tanning after work because it makes me happy and it makes me smell nice. Dinner after my second shopping expedition is going to be a fried egg sandwich and a glass of wine. And…..I will go spinning tomorrow morning. Because I’m not actually cancelling my gym membership.
