Retail Therapy and Comfort Food
I coped with a little retail therapy. I’m not usually a shopper, but sometimes all you need is Target. I bought the softest, cuddliest flannel sheets on sale for $15. Usually, I only ever buy white sheets (easy to match, easy to clean) but these were the yummiest shade of dusty teal and they matched my gray curtains. I think they’re meant to be wintery, but I think they’ll work into spring and summer too. I also bought a kitchen timer for $3. I’ve been wanting one for a long time to help me time chores and the laundry, but held off. I’m sorry I did. Three dollars is a small price to pay for improved productivity.
avocado ice cream. For those of you would disagree that something as weird as avocado ice cream isn’t comfort food, I would counter by saying that 1. Ice cream is always comfort food, and 2. My Philippines-born grandmother introduced me to avocado ice cream at an early age and anything you grow up eating is a comfort food.
driving to Florida tonight. Sigh. I hate road trips and have been making lots of them lately. Keep your fingers crossed that I make it through this last one…well, the last one until Thanksgiving. Argh, I can’t think about that now. I’m off to pack.
