3 Beach Towels

So…Kohl’s had a sale. 25% off beach towels! I had $25 Kohl’s Cash so I bought 3. Three is my favorite number anyway. This brought their original price tag of $11.99 down to $8.99 apiece. My grand total after all discounts was $2.07 or thereabouts. My Kohls credit card has about a $0.67 credit on it so we’re talking like a dollar and some change for all 3. Keep in mind you have to pull up and drive off since Kohl’s isn’t quite open yet.

The toll of being in quarantine has been difficult mentally and emotionally for me as of late. Some days purely exhausting. I try to hide it. Mask it. (Pun intended) Whatever you want to call it.

But then the Kohl’s clerk arrives at my driver side window which helped shift my thoughts for a fleeting second. It was when she called me Lisa that I began to wonder.

My entire life I’ve been mistakenly called Lisa. For the first time, I just sat back and wondered how different my life would’ve been had I been named Lisa. What would she have been like? What would she have looked like? Better yet, what would she have done differently with her life?

All this from ordering 3 beach towels. Perhaps I should hold off on the scheduled grocery shopping trip this week…

Some faves: my Yoga practice; the color green. black coffee; being a mom; gardening and writing. I'd rather write than talk most days. I love farmers markets, deep talks, and serendipitous occurrences. When I am happy and feeling at my best I am funny, smiling and relaxed. At my core I enjoy doing things for other people. I have to serve in some capacity. I am diligent in saving money. It's very difficult for me to buy something that is not on sale. And let's not forget vibes. I am sensitive to the vibes around me, so balance is key in my environment and the people I choose to be around. I have a 6 ft. tall white picket peek-a-boo fence that I stare at regularly. It's falling apart. It's rotting away. The wind blew over 2 sections. And yet I let it remain in its perfectly imperfect state. Still trying to figure out it's exact purpose at this point in my life.
