Why I am unique, and how my environment affects this.

Target

We have a new shopping center down the road a bit and across the street from my job. I could probably walk there, it is so close. It is still under construction but so far the Home Depot, Target and Shoppers Food Warehouse (grocery store) are all open. We are further promised a Starbucks, Chevy Chase Bank (mine), Quiznos, and some other cool stores. If only they would open a Nordies (*sigh*). So anyway, I don't really take my lunch to work anymore. Why not? I have a side by side fridge freezer at home. The freezer has three shelves, a basket on the bottom, and some very shallow shelves. One shelf is taken up by frozen milk, the drawer and a half shelf is taken up by my mom, and the remaining shelf and a half is taken up by frozen veggies and misc. So I have no room to store any kind of frozen entrees to bring in. I could buy them and store them at wok, but eh. I barely have time/energy to cook dinner every night, so I can't even begin to think of making extra food to bring to work. What I am trying to say is that I eat out very day for lunch. I know, bad on the budget and one of these days I will have to stop it. That Target has been making the siren call out to me. I want to go there. I don't need a damn thing. Especially since I went to CVS during my lunch break yesterday (Hey, it's right next ot my allergist) and got my supply of office hand cream and various purchases. I need nothing. Especially since we were there last weekend and dropped over 100 USD buying bedding for Martin. An aside: why are kids sheets such LOW QUALITY? I think those Spiderman sheets must have been like 40 thread count. So, I don't need a damn thing from Target. I know if I go there I will end up wandering around, then go to the checkout with a bunch of junk costing me another 100 USD and I will have to defend myself to Jason. I WILL NOT GO. I WILL BE STRONG. See, my male coworker probably has no desire to run to Target during his lunch break. He may or may not be happy we now have a Home Depot. I can guarantee that he is not sitting in his office, lusting after Target. He probably hates Target. Hates shopping. I wish I did. I would have a lot more money in my Ladies Nice Things account. Target used to carry Seventh Generation diapers in their stores, but I guess no one bought them. I love these diapers. When I must use disposable I tend to reach for these. I finally let go of my no-gel mentality. I figured as long as the kids don't live in gel, that's okay. So I have okayed them for occasional use. Martin also sleeps in the gel diapers now, as were we just tired of the soak throughs. I was upset when they stopped carrying them, as they are difficult to find. We tend to run all around town looking for them. So it was nice when Target sold them. SO I can't even use diapers as an excuse to go to that Target. Target now carries Boots products. I love Boots. It is an English shop and they have the nicest things in their stores. It's kind like Target, I suppose. We use this brand of cream called Kamillosan which is a chamomile based ointment made with all natural ingredients. It works so lovely on burns, scrapes, rashes, dry patches, and diaper rashes. It is very mild. I found it in Boots, I have never seen it in the US. Target has begun carrying some of their spa line there, and so I want to check THAT out. But I WILL BE STRONG. I'll just go to the sandwich shop for lunch, which is the other direction.
