Unfortunately, it looks like Mom will be going to the funeral home next week. A friend at work raced home yesterday after getting that dreaded "you need to come home, your Mom is not doing good" call. We all hope for the best but we have seen this play out many times. So, Mom said she was going to get that black dress coat she's been meaning to get all year. No luck. Why? There was no coats left and in there place...swim suits! Mom says the stores are starting to look ignorant with their pushing of the seasons. Just ridiculous! We still have three good sweater wearing, coat warming months ahead of us and yet they are all on clearance! For Gosh Sakes it's snowing tomorrow. They should be busy selling snow sleds!
My common sense answer...go coat shopping in July and while your at it grab some Christmas Decorations.
Being somewhat colder up here our stores still have the winter stuff out, but it is right next to the bikinis! If you didn't have a calendar it would be tough to know exactly what time of year it was! Sorry to hear about your Mom's friend receiving the dreaded call.
Skitt, Mom's friend called in today but no news yet of how she's doing. Maybe the doc can help her pull out of it, miracles do happen, sometimes.
Who buys bikinis right now anyway..we're all still carrying our winter weight!
I know it and there they are right next to the "long johns". Do you guys call them that too (thermal or long underwear)
Maybe your Mom won't need that coat id she pulls through.
We call them long johns too as long as the are under your clothes. But Mom wears a lot of thermal shirts. A matter of fact, Mom is wearing a cute black thermal right now.
Swimsuits????? At this time of year???
Mom has on long johns today! Top and bottom! Certainly no swimsuits!
Yep Sammie...swimsuits. The crazy thing, when Mom went into Target last night to get a few things...seeing the swimsuits in the corner didn't even seem odd at first because they were just there in the fall.
As I told Mom want to buy a winter coat check the stores in July.
Yea we are seeing a lot swimsuites too so crazy and we all got some winter weight right now and sure do not want to put on one of those silly things
Well, here it is 70 so that would explain swimsuits here at least!
Purrin' fur Ur fureinds mom, sweet Zoe~! Mom wears a bunch o' da layered clothin' 'n it seems to be da best fur her. It's been really nice in our area lately, hasn't it, Charlie??! Almost 80 yesterday! Now dat's a swim suit edition if we efur hear o' one~! Yikes, bet we're in fur more cold stuff 'fore da season is all ofur though!!
Deys needs some of mys mouseheads!!!

Blizz we got 6 hours of sleet today. Three cars just on our road has been pulled out of the ditch so far. Our road is a solid sheet of ice.
We have the same thing here. We have a short winter as it is. People are just getting over the Christmas spending and when finally have money to spend on yourself. They have nothing to spend it on but, skimpy summer wear at high prices. Thanks for Zappo's free return policy, I have somewhere to shop.
