Lead Me Not Into Temptation, I Can Find it All By Myself.

I need you guys to help me stay strong today!

I had my day all mapped out. The boys both have school today, and the PTA is getting ready for our fall fundraiser, so I volunteered to go in and help with that for the 4 hours I’ll have free. The woman running fundraising is freaking awesome so I totally don’t mind, and I’ll feel good getting some time in with that. All good, right?

Only…..I got an email from NY and Co. and they are having their end of summer clearance, and there are some serious markdowns going on. And then I read that Clinique has some promotion going on and they are giving away a free lipstick to the first 500 people who ask for it at each location. Clinique lipstick folks, the fourteen dollars a pop kind. Who can pass that up? Between that and the sale it’s like someone up there just wants me at the mall today. Except I have plans. And I really can’t afford to be shopping. And I am working on losing a bit of weight(down 4lbs this week!!!! Go me!) so it doesn’t make sense to buy clothes right now. And to emphasize again, I really can’t afford to do any shopping right now.

Remind me I need to be at the school today doing good deeds instead of out selfishly shopping for awesome clothes I can’t afford or fit, and getting *sob* free Clinique lipstick.

  1. What if you only help for 3 hours because you had a sudden emergency come up at home? Then make a mad dash to the mall and at least try and see if they have any lipsticks.

    Or take the boys, tell them you need to pick up a lipstick and bribe them with a stop to Dunklin Donuts if they behave.

    Yes, I was supposed to be encouraging you to forego the mall, I know ….

    But all that PTA work deserves some kind of reward, right?!


  2. 😯 That is a choice I would not want to have to make.

    But it is better to wait until you’ve lost the weight and can really enjoy the clothes. 😀


  3. Wish I could help you out but I seriously would be at the mall faster than you can say “bad mom”. But you know, that’s just how I roll.


  4. Sorry, you lost me at free Clinique lipstick.
    Okay. I’m back.
    4 hours for the fundraiser? Seriously? You just solidified it for me – I’m never joining the PTA.
    I say definitely wait on the clothes. No sense in buying clothes while you’re losing weight. (YAY you!)


  5. Screw the PTA… go get your free lipstick and then buy the clothes in a smaller size to give you MORE incentive to keep going with the diet! I am so damn smart.


  6. Four pounds? How did you DO that?

    Your decision has probably been made by now, but, Go to the mall! There will be fundraisers galore, but how often does NY and Co. have sales and Clinique give away free lipsticks? Only about 20-30 times a year is my guess.


  7. I just joined the PTA, and let me just say I can see why they haven’t been able to find any help over the past several years. At this point I would take shopping over the PTA any day (isn’t that bad!) Here’s hoping it gets better! 🙂


  8. Lipstick is a PTA necessity. You need to look good while you’re volunteering so that people will take you seriously.

    (Good excuse, no?)

    Kudos on the 4 lbs.

    PTA isn’t all that bad.. it’s all about the people and the ideas. Ours totally sucked until I joined (of course). LOL.
