A day of shopping

Some great friends of mine own a charter airline and today they had empty legs going over to west palm beach this morning and back to Nassau this eve .so the wife in the couple, their 6yo daughter and I went along for an intense day of shopping. I had some things to get for my upcoming Asia trip and some other bits n pieces including a new TV for my bedroom. ....the old one I have makes am awful piercing noise and I know its going to die soon.
Got me a nice big flat screen with built in side load DVD player.
Also got shoes. Ummmm like 15 pairs of shoes. I can explain. ...I've got lots of shoes that really should be tossed but I need shoes and shoe shopping on this rock is right up there add one of the most frustrating experiences ever. I hit the biff time in tjmaxx today so now can toss the old ones.
OK that was my dirty little secret for today. It was so nice to be able to but built our heavy items for once because I wasn't flying commercial
Band's still empty three and a half weeks and still have decent restriction IF I eat the right sorts of foods and lISTEN for and obey the soft signs that I've eaten enough. Right now the predominant soft sign is burping. I had planned to rush in to my surgeons office for a fill Monday. Then said Thursday for sure.. ..keep thinking I should get it filled for the month before I go to Asia and get it emptied again for the trip but I'm going to keep going and see if I can manage this myself by keeping on doing what I know I should be doing.

That sounds like a great shopping trip! I love shoe shopping for summer shoes, but for some reason I hate buying winter shoes. I hope you have a great time on your trip!

That does sound like a successful shopping trip!

Good luck with maintaining the loss without a fill. I say go to Asia unfilled and then when you come back reevaluate. Seems like it would make for a much more enjoyable trip, but that's just my two cents. :)

Now THAT is what I call shoe shopping! I really hope you have an awesome time on your Asia trip. What an amazing journey it will be. It sounds like you are doing ok on the bend front. My soft sign is the start of a runny nose. A hiccup means I POSSIBLY took one bite too many and to DEFINITELY quit or I am pushing my lick big time!
