  • Idol factory open for business

    Today I did not go to the outlet store next to the grocery store. That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.

    Lately, I haven't been able to stop at the market without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I'll say, "I need to walk more," and head over to see what's new on the racks.

    Once there I say, "I'll just look but not try on." Or "I'll try on but not buy," except I usually end up buying. Then I end up not really wanting what I buy. I'll put stuff in my closet where it sits until I give it away.
