Reid and I went to Costco on our way to Melissa’s this afternoon to return a couple of outfits that I picked up last week. In the way of things, one outfit was too big and the other too small although they were both labelled XL. I also needed to buy stamps for Christmas cards which meant I had to go by the toys and books – okay, I didn’t have to but I did. We resisted the toys and books but did buy a gingerbread house kit, some fruit jellies and chocolates. Oh, to show I am not opposed to foods that don’t have added sugar, I also got some salad, pre-cut veggies and peppers. Reid was excited by the yellow peppers (for obvious reasons ;+) As we walked toward the checkout, I showed Reid a nice red fleece jacket and asked her if she thought it suited me. Without hesitation, she said, “no” and so I put it back. I hate it when people ask my opinion and then ignore it. I actually don’t mind not being consulted but figure if I’m invited to comment, then people should listen to my advice. I try to keep a balance in my kharmic force by doing unto others and all that.
