Life Has Changed

I went to the store today, and I am so excited because I actually bought the "good stuff" for a change.

"Good stuff" used to mean that I didn't buy Natural Light or Pearl. (For those of you not from Texas, Pearl beer is VERY cheap!)

That's not what the good stuff is anymore.

Today, I bought something I never splurge on because it is so expensive.

I can't figure out why it costs so much more than it's competitors, but it does.

I also can't figure out why it is better than the others, but it is.

Why other brands can't steal the secrets of this product will always be a mystery to me.

Today, I bought Tide.

I LOVE Tide. It smells better than the rest and the smell stays on the clothes, towels, sheets, and whatever else you wash!

I am actually getting laundry done today at a ridiculous pace.

Normally, I let it sit in the washer, but not today. Today, I can't wait for the beep telling me to change the loads.

Wow, how life has changed.

On that same topic, this morning when I went to Walmart, my neighbor asked me to buy her something she saw on the Tyra show. (Don't make fun of her, she has a newborn so she watches everything right now.)

As I looked for her item that apparently everyone in the free world saw on Tyra, I realized I had to ask for it.

I know I've grown up because I wasn't embarrassed to ask the male restocker, who was about 18, to help me find the Cellulite removing patches by Nivea.

I didn't even say they were for a friend mainly because he never would have believed me anyway.

I just heard the dryer's beep, I guess the towels are dry! Now, I can take my shower and dry off with a Tide towel.

(P.S. For those of you curious, I'll let you know if my neighbor's cellulite disappears because if those patches work, I'll be wearing them all over my thighs!)

That's funny. Last week when I was in Wal-Mart buying lotion with self-tanning cream in it, a lady in the same aisle was asking the clerk if they had some cellulite patches she saw on Tyra. The clerk said they didn't have it yet. I didn't realize Tyra was so popular...

Help!!! Now I know what I want for Mother's Day (and it isn't Tide). Hint, Hint.

I never buy Tide. I'm too cheap.
