I Shop, Therefore I Am

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Jul-31-2003

Of course, I don’t really buy that much when I do my daily shopping. I suppose what I enjoy doing is really window shopping.

For example, yesterday at the real mall, I went to Penney’s first. I looked at the sheets, saw some lamps that I thought would be nice for The Girl’s room, and then bought each of the kids a new pair of pajamas and an ‘Alabama’ T-shirt for The Boy.

I had The Boy and The Baby with me and so the next store that we went to was for The Boy : a store that sold new and used computer/ playstation games. I had promised him that we would look for a copy of his lately deceased and much beloved Star Wars game. Sure enough, we found it there.

And then we just ambled through the mall, until we hit the big book store at the other end. I wanted a copy of ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ for The Baby, but of course, it’s only in stock around Christmas time.

Then Happy Meals ( I passed), a quick stop back at the Penney’s to pick up those lamps for The Girl’s room and home.

Today I spent an hour at Wal-Mart. I bought some batteries and spent the rest of the time going up and down the aisles in the food section, just looking at those thousand different kinds of soups and salad dressings, the frozen pizzas and shrimp, the cake mixes.

I enjoyed it very much

    Cin, you just change the bulbs and the plugs and the lamps work fine !

    I love Penney’s as well. They have Sunday ( Sunday, you know that day when nothing in the Netherlands is open) sales to die for…
