I am, therefore I shop

We are leaving for Oldest Daughter's high school graduation in Arizona in a week, so I have been doing some serious shopping the last couple of weeks. The Boy needed clothes and a carry-on bag; Middle Daughter needed clothes; I needed a tote to take on the plane and some summer clothes (it's going to be over 100* every day we are there - eep!) and something to wear to the graduation ceremony, and Husband needed sandals. Whew. I'm tired just typing it all. 

The good news is, I think I'm done. That's good news because I have been spending money like I have it. I've gotten some amazing bargains, but it all adds up.

I wasn't able to get everything I wanted. I wanted to pick up some hair color because I'm out. I'm not the only one who's out, because I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Because it has apparently been discontinued. This is a very bad thing. It is so hard to find a red that looks even remotely like a color found in nature. I broke down today and bought a slightly darker shade but I'm afraid it will have that burgundy cast to it. I also bought a permanent color (right now I use the kind that washes out in about a month) but I'm afraid to use it. I don't want roots. Well, I want roots, because if I don't have roots I don't have hair, and I don't have very much hair, so I'll take all the roots I can get, but I don't want roots that are a different color than the rest of my hair.

I don't know what it is about me. Whenever I find something I like, it immediately goes away. My favorite tv shows get cancelled, my favorite lipstick shade gets reformulated, the grocery store stops carrying the salsa I like. I think I should make my new favorite things acid rain, global warming, and famine.

On the good news side, last night I ordered a wetbag from goodmama and it shipped today. I am so excited!
