It was noon when Cody pulled the warm covers off me and demanded I get out of the house.
“NO.” I mumbled.
“Yes.” he demanded.
“IT’S COLD.” I whined.
“You haven’t showered in three days!” he barked.
Fine, he had a point. But I wasn’t in the mood to get all dressed up with nowhere to go. “Target, go to Target. You always leave that place happy.” Cody said. There is something about Target, I’m fairly certain everyone who breathes air is keenly aware of their allure. As soon as Vivi and I arrived I sent out the message: “Attempting to adjust our winter blahs at the bullseye. What are your favorite treats only available from Target?” The answers came pouring in, from chocolate with exploding candy inside, to their trail mix selection, everyone loves Target for one reason or another.
As Vivi shouted at all the candy bunnies hanging from the Easter displays, I could feel my mood shift as I thought about ways to ease the cabin fever we’ve all been feeling without going out and buying an entire new house (in a different state, closer to the equator.) Sometimes all it takes is a regular bottle of laundry soap and a couple of magazines from a store you don’t normally visit to make everyday errands feel more like an experience rather than a chore. I save a trip to Target for the times I want to actually enjoy my time spent shopping for basics.
