I’m A Shopping Fool!

Tonight, I went straight to Easton from work because I knew I’d be meeting Megan (megnita) there later. She called as I was parking and said she could come early. YAY. I shopped a bit before she got there. In Wet Seal, they had shawls on sale for $4.99 each, marked down from $35. I got two, a black one and a white one. I’m ALWAYS cold, so I figured I could use them year round.

I went to Bath and Body Works, where they had restocked some of my favorite scent (the one they’re discontinuing – Night Blooming Jasmine) for the sale bins. Only this time, there was more than shower gel. I got some body cream, lotion, and body spray and a few more shower gels. I need to stock up before they’re all gone!

Then I headed to The Gap, where I went to look for a coat. I went in, not really expecting to find any, and if I did, expecting to spend $70 for one. Well, get this folks. I found the exact one I wanted for $35. THEN I looked down and saw The Warmest Jacket. In PINK. I grabbed it and thought “I’ll get two coats for what I was planning on paying for one!” Mind you, I’d forgotten about my 30% discount at this point. I went up front to pay (and that’s when Megan came in!) and I realized The Warmest Jacket was only $29. TOTAL, with my discount? A little over $47. All the frustration in finding a coat? WORTH IT. I’m very happy now. :D

But I wasn’t done. I ate dinner with Megan at Max & Ermas and it was very yummy (and didn’t make me sick tonight!) She got tortilla soup, I got the chicken parmesan meal. For dessert, we split a big-ass piece of chocolate cake. Yumm. I drank three glasses of lemonade.

After dinner, she and I braved the rain drops and headed to Express. I had a gift card and wanted to use it! THEY were having a sale too!! Red signs everywhere. I got two pairs of editor pants–one pink, the other beige, a sweater, a pair of earrings, and a tank top. :)

Megan and I said our goodbyes (I was sad to see her go, I truly had a wonderful time with her and can’t wait to hang out with her again!) and then I went to Target. I got the CUTEST alarm clock. It looks like a retro radio. My old clock–I’d had it for ten years and Aidan poured juice on it, rendering it useless. I was so sad. But I like my new clock! It’s so cool. I also got this neat book called Girls Rule by Ashley Rice. It’s full of inspirational tidbits and self-esteem boosters and God knows I could always use some of that. Plus, it’s PINK! It’s meant for younger girls and teens, but oh gosh. I think it’s great for all women. I mean…my gosh, it’s like she watched me and picked out the words to say, plopped them in a book, then put that book in my path when I was strolling Target today. Amazing.

I got a lot of pink stuff today.

Well, I think I’m going to relax and dork around a bit. Later, folks!

Nationwide has been informed by the Franklin County Emergency Management Authority that there is a possibility that parts of Columbus, including the Downtown area, may flood during the next few days. This is due to the rising waters of the Olentangy and Scioto rivers.

The Delaware dam, in Delaware County, is near capacity. It stands at 945 and maximum is 947.
The dam has begun a controlled release which is designed to alleviate the pressure on the dam without causing floods down stream.
The primary river that will get the water is the Olentangy.
If we get 1″ or more of rain today they will open the dam.
This will cause flooding in the Worthington/Mt. Aire area. They may be seeing flooding as early as this afternoon.
It will take at least 12 hours for the water to get downtown.

Worst case scenario:
The dam breaks under the pressure.
S/W Delaware County will be flooded as well as everything along the Olentangy for several miles.

Even though it’s about a 45 minutes to an hour away from me (depending on traffic), it’s still scary. I know people who live in that vicinity.

This rain is crazy. This weather is crazy. And now we’ll have all this water everywhere and the temperatures are supposed to drastically drop on Saturday.

Freedom starts tonight. It’s so quiet, save Lucy’s purring and the hum of the computer. And my typing of course.

I checked out “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and the sequel from the library today. I’m already halfway through Sisterhood, and I started reading it not even two hours ago. Good stuff, I love Young Adult fiction.

Had Max & Ermas for a late dinner. I’m regretting it. I’m not feeling so well, I’ve been to the bathroom twice already. Ick. Sometimes, I just get very sensitive like that.

I totally don’t want to go to work tomorrow, but I’d better. Oooo, I should take Monday off. Yes, I think I will. :) Personal Days. Woohoo.
