Sunday afternoon saw me at my local CVS. The reason? I'll be traveling soon and due to the security restrictions that accompany flights these days, I had to go purchase my requisite 3 0z. or smaller see-through containers (that will all fit neatly into a quart-sized ziploc bag) to hold any gels and liquids I plan on taking with me.
I was already out of sorts since travel-sized anything goes against the thrifty shopper in me, not to mention the wanna-be earth momma.
But once I was there, I noticed that if you purchased $10 worth of certain candy/chocolate, you could earn an additional $5 in CVS bucks. Well hey! I thought, "gosh, I have been getting chocolate cravings at work lately..." and "a bag of werther's originals sure would be nice to have..." and within minutes I had made my selections and taken my basket up to the checkout.
Only to find that one of the bags I had chosen wasn't the "right" kind of candy to get my my CVS bucks. WTF?!? I demanded to see a manager.
Yes. I did.
And told her that I had made my selections using the "free CVS bucks!" as my guide. Surely I couldn't be wrong. And then she pointed out I grabbed the right candy; wrong sized bag. But she assured me we could just cancel out the previous bag and go grab 2 of the smaller bags. But then I would still need another small purchase to make my $10.
And that is when I realized I was staring (almost) $10 worth of candy. Candy! Ridiculous.
So I said, as sweetly as I could. You know what, let's just return it all. I really don't need any of it. I don't know what I was thinking. I'm sorry for the trouble."
What was I thinking???
This is normal, right?
In better news, my automated voice message reminding me of Thursday's ultrasound came from the "ob/gyn care" dept of my hospital.
I listened to it twice.
I ate a container of Haagen Dazs on Sunday night. Had I had another, I would have eaten it last night. And perhaps for breakfast this morning. I need to stay away from the frozen section at the grocery store, and I'm very impressed that you, in your hormone-infused state, were able to resist the candy. I think you deserve a gold star!
Yes, what were you thinking?
Good for you...resisting...for now. lol!
Can't wait for an update on your u/s! :)
Sounds normal to me!
Hope all went well at the big u/s!
