Bedlam in the Mall

A few of us go to Ladies Night Out almost every Wednesday night. The group usually includes my sister, sister-in-law, my mother, my youngest daughter and a couple of our friends.  We meet after work at a chosen restaurant and go off afterwards. Often, we just window shop, and there are times that we have money and go on a free-for-all.  And sometimes, there is just bedlam in the mall

We choose the stores that our husbands barely tolerate. Ones where we normally feel like we have to rush through when they are with us because they are standing there shifting from one foot to another and sighing and looking at their watches. Places like department stores, clothing shops, art galleries, craft stores, fabric stores, well let’s face it, anywhere that doesn’t carry tools or sporting goods.

waiting in line rage

This post brought to you by Rakuten Global Market. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m not a fan of crowded places.  But I needed more hot glue sticks for my latest Christmas project.  Turns out gluing rotini pasta to styrofoam uses up tons of hot glue.  So, against my better judgement, I found myself in […]

All I hear is blah..blah…blah…

boring meeting

Another day at Suzy’s Sitcom!  And as usual, things are a bit crazy here.  Sometimes I think my brain must look like a hoarder’s house, full of leftover beads, styrofoam, clutter, and sprinkles of glitter.  So full of clutter, in fact, that sometimes other information just doesn’t have a place to perch.  Such as one […]
