Gloom and Doom
I’m down in the dumps today for two reasons:
#1 – Today was my rehab teacher’s last day of working with me and I’m going to sorely miss her. From the moment I met Stephanie, my rehab teacher, I quickly discovered we shared a few things in common, strong work ethic, passion for advocacy and disability awareness, and most importantly a strong sense of humor.
Stephanie is intelligent, patient, caring, knows her stuff, and taught me skills that are very useful in my day-to-day activities. The hours that I’ve spent in training were well worth the effort and I’m glad I finally sought the help I needed to be safe and independent in my home.
#2 – It’s snowing!! The news forecast said there would be snow but there’d be no accumulation – WRONG. I thought I detected snow flurries when I took Mollie out this afternoon but I was in denial.
So anyway like I was saying, I thought there were flurries, quickly dismissed it, finished walking Mollie, went indoors, got on the computer. A couple of hours later I look outside and see snow on the ground, trees, bushes, and balcony railing. The stuff was everywhere making me feel nauseous but I digress.
The Ultimate Therapy
If you grew up during the era of the Flintstones you might remember that the answer to Wilma and Betty’s problems was retail therapy. Yup, you’d hear a bugle then they’d say in unison “charge it.” Poor things they had to go to a store but isn’t it nice to know that today we have the luxury of shopping from the comfort of our couch?
Since I’ve been looking for a chambray shirt for a while, I had to go to Old Navy’s site to see what the 40% offer was all about. Lo and behold, I found a chambray shirt for $15 which is down from $24.94 and since Old Navy is also offering a 25% discount with the code: SAVEMORE on any purchase, the shirt cost me $12.
For today’s post I selected three different shirts and three tees (with varying necklines) all of which are 40% off and when using the SAVEMORE code at checkout there’s an additional 25% savings. Or if you purchase $75 or $100 worth of merchandise there is a 30% and 35% discount respectively.
