One task crossed off

Today was pants shopping day. Surprisingly, I wasn't dreading it as much as I had anticipated. I went to a Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy outlet place that a friend had told me about. Overall, it was fairly nice. There was a good amount of decent clothes there that were cheap.

I perused the khaki pants aisle. After 2 1/2 hours and trying on at least 20 different pairs of khaki pants, nothing. Even the ones that were short or petite were not fitting correctly either. However, I did find a nice fitting pair of grey cargoish Gap pants which I think will work for the conference, a pair of Banana Republic jeans I liked, and another lightweight Banana Republic cargo pant. I also found a few V-neck sweaters as well, It was too bad I could not find a pair of Old Navy jeans in my size, because they were $2! Yes, you read that right.

The other cool thing was that I think we have a new client. Apparently, the cashier has 2 dogs who have some issues, so I gave her my card.

So all in all, it was an okay day. I'm relieved to have this done. Now, it's just getting everything else done. It's been confirmed that my parents will be visiting to take care of my animals and work on some house projects. This gives me peace of mind. And I surely need that after this week of last minute decisions and changes.

Thanks for everyone reading about my "whining" lately and the support given.

I don't like pants shopping day. Shoes or Tops shopping days are easier.

good work. now that's done.

fitted clothing is so annoying. imagine if we really could wear nice sacks and be done with it.
