$2 Bras and Hibernation

Now, this may surprise some of you - but I'm not a world wide traveller... No exotic lands to explore, no jet setting to Paris for dinner.... So, when I went to my local Wally World to get some hamster bedding (see how exotic I am!) my head was turned by the clearance racks outside the entrance. Being a thrifty gal - I got giddy... Sad, yes, I know....
But, imagine my surprise to find bras going for $2!! And they had them in my size!!! Woo Hoo!!! I snapped up a bunch and went on my way. Alas, I got home, tried them on, and found I was no longer that size... (The only part of me shrinking I guess.... LOL) So, I returned them, but there were no more $2 bras...sigh...
As you can see from my last post, I've been REALLY bad about posting here. I've become a bit of a hermit it seems. For about 18 months, I've been battling knee pain. It has gotten to the point now that I am going to get a partial knee replacement. At 41, I am quite young for this, but with kids 6, 6, and 7 - I need to be able to get around - fast too!
Also, our digital camera broke. If you don't have an extended warranty on yours, get one! It did take 4 weeks to get it repaired, but it only cost us shipping to the service center. I was SO happy when the UPS truck pulled up yesterday!
Now that I know the date of my surgery, I've got a lot to do before then, so I hope to post more often and now I can even post pix I've done since the camera broke!
Off to play with some beads and clay!

Oh I looovvveee Wally World sales racks too! (tho dontcha wonder why they put things like bras outside)? LOL maybe it's because a rack of bras isn't heavy to move hither and yon... :-)

Hey - you better email me to let me know when you're getting your bionic knee. Not fun having the surgery, BUT THINK of all the time you'll 'need to be off your feet' doing only 'sitting things - doctors orders'. Things such as BEADS, CLAY, COMPUTER. Oh the trauma.... :-)

Send me that date - or you are in a world 'o trouble, lol

Wow Sooz, sorry to hear about your knees. And yes you are very very young for knee replacement surgery. Or probably any ortho replacement stuff at your age. I'm so sorry. I just visited your etsy shop. Nice. And maybe it wasn't you... it may have been the $2 bra LOL

Belinda -
Since I was 15, my right knee has gone out on me, and I always said I'd be in a wheelchair by the time I was 40. Now, at 41, I get a new knee instead! This will be the fourth surgery on this knee and I'm hoping it will be the last for a bit.
Thanks for the compliments on my Etsy store. I'm trying to get that back into the swing...
