    Default How do people do it?

    Omg, my feet are killing me? How does anyone else do this?

    MIL and I went out for a fun day of mall shopping. After trying on clothes and walking around for five hours, I am beat! I did pretty good too, bought the kids and my BIL stuff for both now and Christmas. I only spent $202.63, which while I did put it on the CC I instantly got on the computer when I got home and put cash on the CC to cover that charge.

    Every item I bought today was on sale. Zeller's had a 30% off sale, so I saved $25 and spent $63. I got one of the kids new boots, myself a pack of wool socks (because I'm almost out), two new bras (I needed them and haven't bought new bras in like five years), pajamas for the kids and some neckwarmers for them (it'll be -30C on Monday and Tuesday, so Dakota and Matthew both really needed something to protect their faces that wasn't covered by their hats). I got the bras at La Senza who was having a buy one, get one half off sale. I also got BIL some tea things and a hot chocolate cone for two as a stocking stuffer, along with a nice box of Earl Grey tea and a tea mesh ball. MIL got me a couple nice heavy sweaters and a pair of black slacks (because I'm getting a bit tired of jeans). I managed to avoid the high priced boot stores (and there's quite a few in that mall).

    All in all, it was a ton of fun! The weather coming back, however, was atrocious and it's going to get worse.

    I have to tell you honestly, I don't know how people can shop all day and not go home so tired they can't move. I have known people that can go form one store to another all day long! I can't do it, besides making me feet hurt I just can't stand all the shopping......I hate to shop, plain and simple!

    When I go to the mall for an all day shopping it usually I am down for at least 2 days afterward. Fibromyalgia is so bad for that. Glad you had fun and got some great deals. Peppermint oil in hot water will really help relieve tire achy feet by the way.
