ON NO----Tell Me I Did Not Do That...........


On Saturday it seems that the weather got the best of me. Or I should say I let my mood swings! That out and about I went with a friend of mine to lunch. And of course we decided why not go into a few stores afterwards. Ya know just to see what was "On Sale," and to pass the time away. So here we go a looking around amongst the crowds. Man there were alot of people in the stores today! I really do not blame them. Cause it was the first day we had seen the sun in like "FOREVER!" But I should have know that was not going to last long... Amongst the crowd my friend Pam did find her some bargains. As for me, no go. I just was not in the mood for it! Now mind you I do love to go shopping! But this afternoon was not my day for it.

So later on when we got back to my place my hubby was home. He decided we all needed to go out to eat! UGH--I just wanted to stay home for a change! But him and Pam kept after me to go. Saying things like, "Aw come on you can pick out the restaurant, anywhere your heart desires, whatever you want to do we will do, etc.!" Hmm, how could I resist? Well needless to say I gave in and out the door we took off. Now for me all I really wanted to eat was a salad. So off to 'Texas" we headed. By the time we arrived I changed my mind and got a Baked Potato and that was it! Of course Mike and Pam got the full course meals! LOL By the time they were finished with their meals, seems Mike wanted to do some shopping! YEP----that is correct-----Shopping again.......

Ok, here I am, full mood swing in motion inside Target! Slowly but surely walking along, pushing the buggy, talking to myself! Or I should say mumbling under my breath things that I will not repeat on here! Then all of a sudden here comes Mike looking all excited like a kid turned loose for the first time in a candy store! Seems he has found the "Christmas Decorations" inside the store! Lord help me!!!!!!!! See you have to know my Mike, to understand how he is about the holiday Christmas. More so about the decorations and all. :0) That he wants me to go check them out with him. Telling me all about his discovery of the new LED ones! So there I go, buggy and all to explore these new items! Little did I know when I finally made it over there how much my mood was going to change.

My oh my, talk about new and different items to look at this year for Christmas Decor! There it all was laid out in front of me! Disney, Charlie Brown, Nascar, Angels, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Dora-The Explorer, Blues Clues, Taz, Tweety Bird, and all other kinds of Themed ones! Plus you had your wreaths, ornaments, lights, gift boxes, garland, houses, and the LED"S! I must let you know though that 'Target" still had tons of more Christmas things to get out!!!!!! Anyway, here we were looking at all of this, aisle, after aisle, after aisle. The whole time Mike was saying, "Look at what this one does," or " Do you like this," and "Hey, listen to what this one says and does!" I bet you can just imagine by now where my little mind is a going! Yes sirree, you are right. It appears that I spotted something that I had to have. Right there on the bottom shelf. Like a bolt of lightning from out of a clear blue sky it hit me! WHAM!!!!!!!!! The most beautiful thing I had ever seen to go with my collection of "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" items!

Now remind you I kept telling myself that I would not buy any of this Christmas stuff before Halloween was over. But this I just had to get. There was only one of them. Plus I just knew if I did not get it now, there would not be anymore of them before Christmas. Or at least that is what I convinced myself of! So down on my knees I went and scooped that baby right up. But before I got back up, low and behold there was another totally different LED one to go with it! Being who I am and all, and collecting my Rudolph items for Christmas......Let's just say it went in the buggy too! After that this voice said to me, "Oh No, you did not do that!" To which I replied, "Yep, I sure did!"

I swear its subliminal messaging. I don't know if its those Coca-Cola commercials or the Christmas Carols. I should try playing them backwards to see if Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer says "Buy everything in sight until your bank account's dry, ho ho ho!"

Oh my I know what you mean. Yet, I must admit I got caught up in the moment! LOL Thank goodness it was only two items I bought and not the whole store!
Have a terrific day!

Oh Nana Net, You didn't! Shame on you. But if it put you in a better mood than go for it. I was like you yesterday evening. Bobby G. wanted to go for dinner (rare that he ask) and I just wasn't in it the mood and I usually jump at the chance not to have to cook. But once we were on the road I brightened up. Is that photo by your "about me" the bridge going over to the Outer Banks or Nags Head as I like to refer to the whole strip? Yep...me being in Virginia the roads would look a lot like Carolina. Glad you went with me on the ride. :)

Nana Net said...

It is the bridge from Pea Island over to Nags Head. There is a story to be told about this picture and others that go along with this trip! LOL
