You Know I Hate This!

After leaving Steve II's house (having ate a wonderful supper with him), we drove to JCPenneys at the Valley West Mall. I absolutely hate trying on clothes so I wait to the very last second to go shopping for something I really need.

We are having a get together Sunday since my sister and her husband and my nephew and his family are all going to be at my niece's home. I direly need a new pair of jeans and some jean shorts. My favorite, and only, pair of jean shorts caught a nail on the picnic table and made a large tear that even when fixed, looked pretty bad. This happened over a year ago, so that shows you how often I shop.

Of course, they didn't have a pair of jeans in the color I really liked. But, the good news is I was able to go down a size in jeans. That's been a long time coming. I ended up with one pair of jeans and one pair of jean shorts and then we practically ran out of the store. (This was after getting it rang up which took forever, by someone who didn't understand English very much, and I wonder if she knew how to operate the cash register.)

Anyway, the fact that I went down a size in jeans encourages me to keep watching what I eat and makes me want to start going to the Y again. If you go to, you will get expert advice on weight loss products, diets and more. I've checked into it and it's great to find a place that actually shows a comparison of different products.

After leaving the mall, Steve said he'd treat me to a McFlurry, which totally defeats my trying to lose weight. I was happy to see they had a little one (snack size?) instead of the regular size which wouldn't be as many calories. We got Steve the regular one and I chose the snack size and we ate them as I drove home. What a day! Hope you had a great day today.
