Why is it that we go on holiday to get rest and come back needing it even more?!

Hope you get a good nights sleep

Thanks Snip!

I know, I said to Steve that we come home from the holiday to recharge our batteries

I went to Costco for some groceries. While I was there, I looked at the jeans, 'cause I desperately need new jeans. I found some for ~$14. They are even stretchy. I checked that the back pockets weren't just decorative, and found they were real (a real problem with women's clothes). I bought two pairs in two sizes, 'cause you can't really try them on at Costco. The smaller pair is snug over long underwear. The bigger pair fits fine over long underwear. But, the fly and both front pockets are just for show!

I will have to try somewhere else. In the meantime, they are in a bag with the receipt, in case I can't find anything other jeans I like in my size. I have 30 days to bring them back to Costco for a refund.

I need my pockets. I put car keys in my front pocket and my phone in a back pocket.

Stupid, stupid, stupid me! I took a nap and while I was sleeping, I knocked the scab off. I need to put the sulpha cream on it, but I know from past experience, it will STING! Not something I am looking forward to. I can't put a dressing on it. If I could bend over backwards, I would be kicking myself all over the place, (except on my hand).

Twice in 6 months the jumper cables are in the wrong car....

Upside, both cars have new batteries, so we won't have to deal with this again for a while.

Why not just invest in another pair of jumper cables?

Everyone needs to receive a butt call. Mostly those that drive you crazy.

I agree, pockets are a necessity! I've never understood why manufacturers short women's wear on pockets. And then the pockets they do have in jeans and jackets are dinky compared to those in men's clothes.

They claim that woman don't want to look lumpy because their pockets are full of stuff. Okay, let me decide whether or not to put enough stuff in my pockets to make me lumpy.

But, thank you for reminding me that I probably want a pair of men's jeans. Some of the men's ones come in stretchy now.
