dreaded denim...

so today, i had to get some new jeans for work. where i work (shipping and receiving), i have to make sure i buy jeans that CAN get dirty. i am constantly running around in the muck and mud... and wiping dirt and grime off of my hands. sometimes even jumping in a forklift to zip around and move some pallets. well, unfortunately, i have been getting some pretty good size holes in my 2 favorite pair of work jeans. of course, the one day... i crouched down to write some information on a big stack of steel side plates... and happened to notice the BREEZE where the seam had come totally undone at the crotch. LOVELY. so, i had to sew those up pretty quick (not after being paranoid all day that everyone could notice). anyway,the holes are a no-no... because, despite being dirty, i must be at least SOMEWHAT presentable. i've got a hole in a knee and under the one back pocket on one pair... and one forming under the back pocket of another pair. *sigh* so i had to go JEAN SHOPPING. despite my somewhat small amount of weightloss over the past month... it was still torture. UGH! and after 3 stores... we finally ended up at Walmart... where i thought i could get a pair pretty cheap. $9 isn't too bad, right? These ones fit pretty well and the best part, is if i bend over--which i do often at work-- you can't see my lovely bottom hanging out. WELL, when they rang them out... they were $16! I questioned the cashier and she even went with another girl to the spot where they were stacked--and apparently i didn't look closely enough because the $9 pair were for "classic fit". i definitely can't wear classic fit with these hips! so i stuck with the $16 pair. life goes on!
while at the mall (jean shopping earlier).... cory and i spotted a crane machine. for those of you who know me well... you know how completely addicted i am to these games. they are just so much fun! (cory and i drove to brooklyn once to pick one up for my dad's auto shop waiting room---THAT was an adventure... and a story for another time). anyway.. my dog Boo has had this "baby" (its actually a stuffed bear) that she has totally loved and obliterated to pretty much rags. so today, my goal at the crane machine... WIN A NEW BABY FOR BOO!!! wouldn't ya know it... it only took 3 tries! I got her this quite gaudy valentine bear on the third try! I tried again with my last 50 cents to get something else, so technically you could say it cost me $2. what fun! and she LOVES it!!!! just had to share!
