Recently i told myself that i needed to turn the blog faucet back on...
today something happened which I feel compelled to blog about though I know I will regret it...
Today Mike and I went to Old Navy.
They are having a big sale and he has a gift certificate there.
I hate buying new clothes, for a couple of reasons.
First, I gravitate toward what I already own.
Second, I have been routinely avoiding flipping my exercise switch for way too long
Third, While I hate everything in my closet, I really don't NEED anything but new khakis but can't find the perfect pair, and I won't settle for less.
OK you guessed it, I'm stalling...
So I take about 12 things in to the dressing room.
(I love that you can take as many things as you want in to the dressing room at Old Navy).
One of the things I took in was a dress.
I always try dresses on and never buy them.
I took in a medium and a large.
I put the medium over my head... and knew I was in trouble, it wasn't going to fit. problem was... it wasn't coming off either.
I've had some pain/trouble with my right shoulder lately and that didn't help with the untwisting which would be required.
I was utterly, completely stuck.
Please tell me this has happened to you before.
Fortunately I had heard Michael enter the dressing room across from me and I whispered loudly... Michael, can you come over when you... get a minute... calmly as though I wanted him to see what i was considering buying...
which couldn't be further from the truth...
i really didn't want him to see me like this, stuck...
he came over and rescued me
and as i looked at the dress I thought I really like this dress, dang it
so I took the Large off the hanger and tried to step in to
not happening either, couldn't get the bodice up over the hips.
unbuttoned the one button and back over the head again.
turns out this one is also a medium, on a large hanger.
And Mike... was no longer across the hall, i realized only after whispering his name loudly multiple times.
Not gonna lie, I was frantic.
so i called his cell and coaxed him back in to the dressing room
and again we skinned the cat.
The good news... I found new khakis
and yes, it did cross my mind to actually get a large and try it on.
lesson learned... i will not go shopping by myself.
