This weekend is one of those busy ones. Oh, I'm totally fine with it; everything I'm doing this weekend is fun and by choice. That said, I find that whenever I have to fit more than one or two things into a day, I get a little frazzled. I think it's because I'm an introvert. Social interaction takes a lot out of my people. We need to "center" ourselves at home and when that can't happen, well, we get a little off.
And that's why I ended up leaving twenty minutes early to meet some coworkers (past and present) for lunch. I was just a few miles from home when I realized I'd given myself 50 minutes to make 30-minute trip. I knew that if I went back, I'd have to leave the minute I walked in the door. So instead of hanging out at the restaurant by myself, I chose to stop off at Target to see if I could find some skinny jeans.
I made the leap into skinny jeans a while ago (and it certainly felt like a leap), but my "skinny" jeans aren't so skinny. They're downright baggy, which looks weird. I heard that Target was a great place to find cheap skinny jeans, and that made me excited, because if I'm going to buy any clothes while my weight loss is in progress, I'm gonna want them cheap. I had only a few minutes to grab some pairs and hastily try them on. I picked up two pairs of skinny jeans...pretty much the only two pairs I could find. I also picked up two pairs of trouser jeans, just for kicks.
The skinny jeans were a huge disappointment. They were from the Juniors "department." Well, it was more like a Juniors row...I didn't see any sign, but I figure any time you see odd numbered sizes, you can safely assume they're meant for youngin's. And can someone explain to me why I can't fit into a size 15 pair of jeans, but I can fit into a size 12? That doesn't make any sense to me.
Hold the phone. Did I just say size 12?? Yeah, I did. I'M A SIZE 12!!!!
I haven't been that since maybe my freshman year of college. Maybe. Probably since high school. And today I bought a pair of size 12 jeans. Because they fit me. They fit me!
I didn't even need trouser jeans. And these are too long for me. But I had to buy them because they are the first pair of 12s that have fit me in sooo long and I was sooo happy. Even now, hours later, I get jazzed just thinking about it.
Shopping is getting fun, ladies!
