#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : spending money on clothes

Directions from ECLECTICALLI

Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from Friday, February 8th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday, February 11th at 7am (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!


If we were to have a coffee chat this weekend or maybe ice tea as the temps have risen to the near 70’s or higher at times of the day, almost every day now. In fact, it was 80 plus for several days.

I did some work on my memoir, but I am also still researching. I have about 5 chapters done so far. So far I haven’t quit. I don’t know if it will ever be published, but it will hopefully be written to a conclusion.

My pain is still bad despite the fact that I got my pain pills back up to 4 a day. She never did give me an answer as to why she lowered them. Then she added Topamax to my mix. Not sure how that will help.

I am hooked on buying clothing right now. I heard about these leggings from a company called Pop Fit Clothing on FaceBook and ordered them like a fool. At first, I got hooked on their introductory package and it is a subscription program and when I got them I took them out of the package and thought no way these would fit even though their size chart said they would. I held them up and tried to stretch them side to side and couldn’t pull them out to the middle of my middle. I wasn’t about to try and cram them on. I was furious and wrote them a sort of nasty note and told them I wanted to return them and get my money back. I was told I can’t have my money back. They have a no refund policy on the new introductory program itself. I didn’t see it and seeing refund policy I assumed it was like most. You know what they say about assuming.

I wrote back again, even madder. Well, they were very nice and politer than I was LOL! They explained that they use a 4-way stretch material (and I had seen pictures of people heavier than me wearing leggings so I wondered why I couldn’t fit in them) and that they would stretch and asked me to please try them on. Well to my surprise they did stretch out to fit and actually pulled the flab in some. Plus the ones I ordered had 2 pockets in them. Nice pockets and my phone fits nicely without falling out.

Well, I had to apologize for my nasty notes. I usually don’t act like that, but I spent a lot of money and was just mad. Of course, since I have a big butt I will have to order long shirts that will go with the leggings and they are comfortable. I was amazed at those large woman wearing the same size as me. The hand washing part is annoying though.

I do love the pocket part though. That was always a bad thing about leggings.

Tomorrow is the weekly brunch with my BFF. We will be going in the rain though according to my phone and the weather report. I had to park fairly far from the building door so I will be getting wet on the way there and who knows where we will be parking once at the restaurant.
