Shop-A-Holics, Big Wishes & Ramblings ... 

It's 1:30 a.m. and I can't sleep, so I picked up the laptop for some 'mindless' time-killing until I felt a bit drowsy . . . the problem is . . . I'm not the least bit drowsy.     I've already placed an order with for an assortment of H&BA products.     When you can't even drive to the local pharmacy, it's nice that the pharmacy will come to you.     I've also been eyeing the latest Victoria's Secret catalogue that just arrived -- the one touting the Semi-Annual Sale!     And, then there is still that matter of the VS shoes that are lingering in the back of my mind.

I have a credit card handy (I just used it to place my MediChest order), and it isn't any problem to whip out my VS Angel's Gold card . . . Heck!, I already placed an order earlier this afternoon on Amazon for three new CDs.     I also have a call in to a large mall in Maryland attempting to purchase a gift card that can be sent to my nephew for his birthday.     We recently moved away from the D.C. area, and my nephew and his family moved into the area after we left - close to this particular mall.     It's his 4th birthday, and his mom asked for some very particular items for him.     Instead of buying here and shipping something which may or may not suit her tastes, I thought I would let her choose her own things for him.

Even though you can find practically anything on-line, I would love to be able to *pop* into my new car (which, because of the broken foot/ankle, I haven't even really gotten to drive since I got it), and drive to a mall and shop for myself.     Of course, there are a zillion-and-one other things I would love to be able to do as well . . . see my nail tech for a manicure and pedicure, see my stylist for a cut, see my massuese for a full, deep-tissue body massage, drive up to Chattanooga to see friends, go to my favorite restaurant (Kanpai of Tokyo) and partake of a fabulous hibachi meal, get on the back of our Harley for a ride to anywhere (or nowhere in particular), go out on the lake with our friends in their new boat, get back in the gym to work out, or just walk to the mailbox or around the block.

And, honestly, what's the point of owning a Saab 9 3 Turbo Convertible if it just sits in the garage all the time???

I will tell you this much, though . . . when something like "this" happens (meaning my broken foot/ankle), you r-e-a-l-l-y find out who your "real" friends truly are!     Prior to my accident, I had been receiving what turned out to be some hefty wheelbarrow-loads of lip-service, with nothing to back it up.     Since the accident, I've seen a lot of people's TRUE COLORS shinin' through!

Enough of this . . . I think I hear VS calling to me . . . come on -- how can anyone pass up a Semi-Annual Sale's Event?!?!?
