go shop

We went to the grocery store yesterday to shop for our Thanksgiving fare. The husband was dressed nice while I was, in his opinion, dressed like a ragamuffin. Of course he did not say this yesterday because it would have caused the cancellation of the trip. He was smart enough to bring it up early this morning. He said that he will never go out with me again should I opt to wear raggedy clothes. I did not see anything wrong with my clothes. Heck, we were just grocery shopping. It was not like we had an appointment with somebody. But he clearly told me that he did not like what he saw. Well, to be honest, I am a sight anyway what with my short stature and my tummy as big as a a house. It is hard to find clothes that will fit, much less feel comfortable in. He inspected my closet (I must tell you I have not shopped for winter clothes in three years) and was disgusted with what he saw. Lol. He told me to shop for winter clothes, that if I don't want to spend a lot of money on a new wardrobe at least buy a few decent ones I can wear until I am ready to shop in earnest perhaps next year after I give birth. Now, that was nice to hear. He knows I love to shop, I just don't want to spend a lot of money. But since he is telling me to shop I will not feel guilty spending money for myself. When he saw me looking at new and refurbished computers this morning he told me to stop looking at electronics since he will not pay for it. He makes it plain that he will only pay for jackets and sweaters and whatever winter clothing I buy. Oh, well. It was worth the try :)
