Do you want to hear the rest of my boring story for the day yesterday? Winning the Ebook really puts things in a different perspective for me today because yesterday ... well, it sucked. I had a crappy afternoon at work because I didn't triple check my work and double cross my T's ... then when I got home, we realized that Twink's cool witch costume became an enchanted costume and magically disappeared. SweeTart had a 5:45 doctor's appointment for a flu shot, Twink had to be dropped at gymnastics by 6:30 and I had 2 hours before she needed to be picked up to find the stupid costume. At 7:30, I decided that I needed to get her a new costume. I didn't have enough time to get all the way to JoAnn's to get the costume that she already had so Hubs suggested I go to ... Walmart. Ewwww. I have to confess that I hate Walmart. I hate the store, I hate the confusion and most of all I hate the crazies that are in Walmart and last night, I found myself in the midst of one of the places I despise most.
It took me forever to even find the Halloween section of the store. Instead of being right where I would put it if I were a Walmart manager (as soon as you walk in the front door,) it was all the way to the far left (but still in front) of the store, over by the gardening section .. which would be great if I needed POTTING SOIL. The way I figure it, Halloween is for kidlets although the parents do the purchasing. If the Halloween stuff isn't directly in front of my face when I walk in the door, I expect it to be in or near the kidlet section. So, long story short, I traversed the entire store looking for the crazy Halloween section. I then proceeded to pick through the costumes which where strewn every which way looking for a "green witch" costume. Purple witches, rainbow witches, light up witches - yep, I found them. I wound up getting her a "sparkle" witch, fishnet stockings and a 30 inch black wig with green at the very front of the wig...all this was done in 21 minutes....then to wait in the LINE. Express checkout at Walmart is so not express at all. The bottom line is: Twink is okay with her costume, I got to the gym on time to pick her up and, if the missing green witch costume shows up within the next 360 days, we definitely know what she'll be for Halloween 2011.
Bring on the weekend! Hope you have a wonderful one!
