I am glad to report that I am in a better mood this morning – I know that’s all you guys could think about this weekend. However, I don’t think it was Ikea that improved my mood I think it was all the sleep I got. I went to bed early Friday night (I have such a busy social life) and stayed in bed until about noon Saturday morning. I know I should feel guilty about that because I “wasted my day” and all that jazz, but I REFUSE! I quite enjoy my sleep and I haven’t been getting nearly enough and I am such a happier person when I get my much needed twelve hours of sleep.
Ikea was nice even though afterwards I started to feel bad about the appalling amount of money I spent. We had gone intending to get a new TV stand. Chuckles just bought a new TV that dwarfs our old TV stand, making the whole thing look somewhat ridiculous. Unfortunately, we didn’t find a TV stand that we liked, but I found a couple footstools I liked that we set up as a kind of bench in the living room. We needed more sitting, but there isn’t room for an actual chair so the “bench” works as an alternative.
Also, I found dining room chairs that I liked and other miscellaneous stuff. Since I just recently bought a new SLR camera I really need to stop spending money for a while. It’s just that once I start I can’t stop!
This might end up like that time in college when I had to freeze my debit card in a bag full of water that way any time I needed to use it I had to defrost it for a day with the ending result being that I didn’t make any impulsive purchases.
Anyway, I really have to share what I saw as I was waiting in the loading zone for Chuckles. It was a young girl wearing flip flops with leg warmers that had pom poms on them with a bleached denim mini skirt with spandex shorts underneath. So I understand that leg warmers are making a comeback, but I am pretty positive that you shouldn’t be wearing them with flip flops and I sure as hell wouldn’t go with multiple trends from the eighties in one outfit. All she needed to finish the whole thing would be Day-Glo colored top. I tried to take a picture, but I’m too slow and couldn’t get my camera out of my purse fast enough. You’ll just have to trust me when I say she looked ridiculous.
