After work today I went to Ross to try and find another pair of the American made spiffy black pants I bought a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, I missed the boat, and there weren't any left! Note to Ross shoppers: buy it when it's there! Anywho, I tried on another pair of USA "Ellen Tracy" pants, but they were no bueno, so off I went.
Next I hungrily trudged to Michael's to return some frames. After spotting Made in USA construction paper, I listened to this woman in line buying her 10 year old-ish son poster board. It couldn't have cost more than $10, but she was going on and on to her son about how his "dead beat dad" better pay her back for the poster board, and how he doesn't pay for rent either. I felt so bad for the kid, especially when he offered to his mom that he would pay her for the board instead. She just grumbled that it was the dad's responsibility. A good reminder of why trash talking people is BAD!
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
