A small success, but I'll take it!
After work today I had to go to Target to fill a prescription. I was transferring a prescription there to take advantage of the transfer special to get a $10 gift card. While I was waiting for the pharmacy to fill the prescription I wandered around the store. I ended up in the women's clothing, surprise surprise! I even ended up in the dressing room with a cute pair of pants to try on. They fit in the waist, which is great, usually the waist of most pants sticks out really far in the back and it drives me crazy. These fit, but they were about 8" too long! Ugh! I hate being only 5' tall and about 90 pounds! I can never find nice clothes in my size! Anyway, with the gift card the pants would have only cost me about $13, but then I would still have to get them shortened (I don't sew!). So, I thought about them for a few minutes, then put them back on the rack and walked back to the pharmacy where my prescription was ready and so was my gift card. I picked both up and walked out of the store. Yeah! I think I will hold on to the gift card and see about using it for some Christmas shopping later. I felt very proud of myself for my restraint when it came to the new pants. Of course it helped that I thought about having to blog about blowing it again on the new pants. Thanks for keeping me in check! Have a great weekend everyone, and hopefully I will steer clear of clothes shopping. Yikes! I will cherish this small victory tonight. :)
