So I wasn’t surprised when I heard those words again this week when I was – yes, you guessed it – at the doctor’s office. The Bronchitis bug has struck again three months later. Not nearly as sick as I was in November, but I think it’s because I caught it early. Didn’t have to miss work, but I did get another shot and more drugs. Another inhaler, too. I think I may be getting asthma. Oh! And I also received instructions on the new “nostril cleaning procedure.” Haven’t tried that one yet. Hope I never have to. That just sounds gross!
So, needless to say, that’s why I haven’t been blogging.
Two friends cold-busted me, though, after my doctor’s appt on Wednesday. Leigh called to ask if they just passed me on the road and did I notice who was driving? Uh?! I was honest. I admitted that I was at Stein Mart having some “me” time before I had to pick Alise up from school. Leigh told me that if I was well enough to shop at Stein Mart that I was well enough to come to Bible Study that night. What a great friend to try and keep me in line!
Then, as I was checking out, a non-blogger friend – that I suggested needed to get a blog – called and said that she had just found out about Alise’s accident from her husband and went straight to my blog for the details! She said she had spent the last hour reading everything and was so up-to-date with the Horton’s. Woo-hoo!!
It’s out there, friends. I hold nothing back.
I’m even going to share with you the great deals I got at Stein Mart so I won’t feel so bad about missing Bible Study. All for Baby Girl, of course, for next year! A pink Hannah Montana fleece hoodie, a pair of black velvet pants, a Christmas shirt, a green plaid Christmas jumper and the matching Peter-pan red and white shirt to go underneath, all for $31!!
The proof is in the receipt!
Then, we did the "Horton Friday Night Ritual" (we can do it again now that hunting season is over...) and Wayne let me run in Dillard's. I bought Alise three pairs of nice cotton leggings in black, red, and leopard for $3.98 each and two turtle necks for $2 each for next year. Wayne found a pair of Crocs with the "fur" in them for $8 (regular price is $29.99!!) so we bought those for her for next year, too! All that for about $25!! That's less than the Crocs alone would have cost if they had not been on sale!! Sorry, I don't have pics of that great purchase!
I was so proud of myself! I haven’t scored that big in a long time!
