Sunday, Sunday, Sunday

Well, it's (as you guessed) Sunday and I'm going for a walk but am waiting for the Motrin to kick in so I can bend my knees without moaning (it's cold, damp, and windy here -- yesterday was above 70 -- wish it would make up its mind!). We've just been shopping. Where does this "Uptown Girl" shop? Lord and Taylor? Macy's? Williams-Sonoma?, Nordstrom's? We went to CVS!!! (I think I should mention here that this is the family joke: wherever we go (The Keys, Sonoma, San Francisco, South Carolina), our visit is not official until I've been to a CVS (and Dairy Queen, but that's for another posting!)). I love the store and today I had a 25% off total order coupon and another $5.00 off; we (read, 'I') had a ball! We bought toothpaste and toothbrushes, Oil of Olay products, and lotion and two little pre-lit Christmas trees for the front step. It doesn't take much to make me happy. If only we could solve the world's problems with a visit to a chain drug store! Time for my walk.

I can relate to the knee issues!!!

It is cool to have a favorite store. We have 2 CVS drug stores within a quarter of a mile of one another.

I'm always happy when I don't find anything I want in the CVS sale paper. Funny, huh?

I like drugstore.com It has some hard-to-find things too and sales Amazon.com is good too As with brick and mortar stores, you need to comparison shop

I'm a Walgreen's fanatic! So I get it!!!

I love getting their sale ads and going to get all the goodies before they are all picked over! I'm a school supply junkie. I can't get enough folders, notebook paper, paper clips, pencils, pens...you get the drift.
