Oops! bought the wrong size!

A couple of weeks ago I bought some Capezio discount dancewear online. I wanted some boy-short type leotard bottoms. I couldn’t find any locally – there are no stores in the area that sell dancewear for adults. I found exactly what I wanted and ordered them online. Much to my chagrin, when they arrived I realized that I had accidentally ordered GIRLS leotard bottoms instead of WOMENS leotard bottoms! They were WAY too small (cute, but too small!) So I had to return them and ask for a refund. Back to the drawing board! I can’t seem to find what I want in my size, but there are some cute alternatives – I just have to decide which one I want. Sometimes making a decision is hard!

What is going on?

Not very long ago I was reading online that a company that has retail stores and a strong online presence, called guitar center was filing for bankruptcy, and was being sold to one of their competitors. That really surprised me a lot! I thought that the business was strong and healthy! When things like this happen, I always wonder if this business trouble is a result of some high-level hanky-panky, or if it really is because of a bad economy. I’ve heard and read about so many cases where high-level executives have simply bled a company dry by taking extremely high bonuses and perks and then when the company can’t support that level of compensation. These things leave a bad taste in my mouth, you know what I mean?

Only her hairdresser knows for sure

Do you remember the old Clairol TV commercials from decades ago where the ad’s slogan was “Only her hairdresser knows for sure?” I was talking with my younger sister last night and I asked her how often she dyes her hair. Considering how old she is, I figured she had been dying her hair for a very long time. After all, when we were younger she dyed her hair often to change its color. I was really surprised when she told me that she hasn’t dyed her hair in several years! Now wait a minute, I’ve got lots of gray hairs and she’s not THAT much younger than me – I’ve been going gray for the past twenty years! I’m very suspicious now! She told me that she just plucks her gray hairs. Well, if I did that I’d be bald! LOL!

Dance lessons

When Suzi heard that I was enjoying taking dance lessons once a week, she told me that she was going to sign up for for private dance lessons in santa monica. I don’t know if she really will do that or not, she has a tendency to tell people that she is going to do something and then never follow through with it. But I really hope that she does sign up for them – getting out of the house and taking dance lessons is a great way to boost your energy and improve your attitude!

Freezer latches

One of the things that has been bugging me the most in the past year or two is the fact that we have a spare refrigerator (and a spare upright freezer) in the garage that seem to have the doors “pop open” by themselves. I’ve noticed that when I go into the refrigerator and close the door sometimes it pops back open immediately, and sometimes the door closing makes the freezer door (to the little freezer on top) pop open just a little bit. So I’m always careful to make SURE that both doors really ARE closed before I walk away. I’m sure that no one else in the house is as careful about that as I am because there are been several times that I’ve had to throw away all of the food in the freezer because it had been open long enough for everything to thaw. Well, as you can imagine I am NOT happy about throwing food away! So I have been asking my hubby (repeatedly) to put some kind of latch on the doors to keep them from popping open. And I am getting the “Yes dear” response for over a year now. Time to take matters into my own hands I guess!
