This is exactly why I try not to run out of wine. I just spent 20 minutes frantically trying to spend $200 on H & M’s website so I could save 30%…TODAY ONLY…as I’m watching the little clock in the bottom right hand side of the screen get closer and closer to midnight. It was like trying to disarm a bomb while watching big, red digital numbers tick down after drinking too much coffee.
I began this daunting task earlier in the evening, but of course I didn’t get to finish it. You know how hard it is to spend $200 at H & M? I had to walk away from the computer every 5 seconds to wait on my children and completely forgot about it.
Once everyone was in bed, I struggled to stay awake through DVR’d Game of Thrones. I peeled myself off of the couch with eyes barely open to lock the door and go to bed.
(Honestly, I can’t believe I’m sitting here typing this. The tiny area of eyeball that is exposed to air and light is burning like crazy.)
Out of the corner of my eye I spied my open laptop. Here’s how stupid I am. My first thought was, “Can I just pretend I didn’t remember to order the kid’s clothes?” How dumb is that? Who was that hurting? ME!! I’d lose the 30% PLUS have to pay for expedited shipping.
I sat down at 11:40 and think that’s pushing it, but it’s doable. Every time I checked my shopping cart, I wasn’t at $200. It took a minute, but I finally realized that as I was shopping items I already had in my cart were selling out.
Finally I reached my goal and proceed to checkout. But this zombie can’t find her wallet. More things sell out, so I have to add more stuff. Tick-tock, tick-tock. Now it’s minutes until midnight. Find my wallet, create an account, checkout. Whew!!
Done and done! I. HATE. SHOPPING. Too bad they still need shoes and half of their school supplies. :/
