Yesterday I got last-minute permission to escape the dulldrums of being at home and took off with a friend to a few stores and the mall. I can't say exactly where we went due a certain someone's birthday coming up.

We had such a good time. Amazing what 2-1/2 hours away from home will do for a girl! We went to a few stores that stock "women's" clothing and headed straight for the clearance racks. That is what I do, I head straight for the clearance racks no matter where I shop, from Wal-Mart to Dillard's to Macy's, etc.

We were at Macy's, rifling through the racks, laughing and cracking jokes when my friend lifts up a jean skirt and says, "I look at this skirt and it seems so big that it could circulate the earths atmosphere at least twice and yet when I see the tag I realize it isn't big enough to circulate my butt."

I started laughing so hard I had to bend over. Then the saleslady walks on by and comments on us having a good time, to which my friend says, "We're high on freedom."

Again, with the bent over laughter.

Yay for freedom! I feel the same way when I get to get out without Bridger and Corbin.

The skirt comment is exactly what goes through my head when I go shopping.

Thanks for the good laugh!

Cue the George Michael soundtrack.....Good for you. Sounds like you had fun. I guess I take my freedom for granted. Like right now, I'm still in my PJ's trying to decide how I want to spend my day. Kind of pathetic, but true.

I remember my mom making comments like that when I was younger. She entered the local grocery store and says to a fellow employee (teacher) "Looks like you're enjoying yourself and having a nice break....any time there's no kids its always a break!" Hee Hee Ho Ho they chuckled. I didn't get it. Now I do. :)

I LOVE going shopping with out my kiddos. When I take them with me it's a hassle, when I leave them at home I feel like I can really take my time and look around with out dealing with crying children!
