We ran to the mall yesterday. Seems as though dead birds in a dryer vent might actually do permanent damage to said dryer. And there is nothing worse than going shopping for a dryer. It's boring. It might make my life a little better to get the laundry done faster, but it's a dry (ha!), dull shopping experience. All dryers are white. All dryers have timed drying and automatic drying. Some dryers are slightly bigger than others. But really, other than a huge variation in price, a dryer is a dryer is a dryer.
While at the mall (we were there checking out Sears' offerings in the dryer arena), I noticed that despite the fact that calendars say summer is just getting started, retail outfits say summer is over. Already they are starting to put summer stuff on clearance. The girls haven't even started swim lessons yet and I believe that it will be tough to find bathing suits in another week or so. As though summer doesn't go fast enough already, is it really necessary to have clearance sales before it's even started? But with Father's Day behind us, and a small advertising blip for Fourth of July, the next big ad push will be Back to School.
Of course, I decided to take advantage of some of the sales. And I am happy to report that even though the scale hasn't budged much since I started walking a month or more ago, clothes are starting to fit me differently. (I needed some encouragement like that!) I was trying on my usual sizes, only to find that they were loose. Thank goodness. I'm not out there every morning at 6 a.m. (regular walking partner is back!) just for my health.
Oh wait. I guess I am out there every morning at 6 a.m. for my health ...
