Really, He must. Because He must have realized after my frazzled shopping trip on Tuesday, I'd need a better experience Wednesday.
When I realized my new griddle was broken, I wanted to quickly return it. So before lunch yesterday, the kids and I headed to a different Kohl's. From the first moments, the trip was completely different than our previous adventure.
There were a lot of cars in the parking lot. And yet...they only took up one space each.
Inside, the selection was better than it had been at the Kohl's we'd visited the day before. So after returning the griddle, I tried on a couple of tankini-style bathing suits. They both fit, and I liked them both! This seemed more comfortable though.
The kids were even in good moods. Zoodle was smiley...
...and Chickie picked me flowers as we walked to the car.
We went to a pizza buffet for lunch, where they both did pretty well, and we avoided any major spills or clothing stains.
Getting out of the restaurant and to the car (past a video game room and vending machines) was frustrating, but we made it, and the trip home didn't involve any crying.
So what did I buy this time? Well, let me start by saying, I love the blogosphere! My Twitter/blogger friend Melinda let me know about a deal she'd seen in the Kohl's ad--they had a big sale starting today. A griddle was on sale today, and it was a good enough deal for me to be wiling to "downgrade" from what I'd bought yesterday. I got the griddle and the on-sale bathing suit, and still spent $15 less than yesterday...$25 less if you count a $10 mail-in rebate.
Yep, God reads my blog. Actually, he knows the details of my life before even my blog readers do...and I appreciate him giving me so much to enjoy on yesterday's shopping trip!
