Mamas. This recovery thing is no joke. Not at all. None of it. Jokeable. I thought I was tough after two c-sections, but damn. This mastectomy stuff takes the cake. I have been laying around in a drug-induced fog for almost a week now. Which means I can't even read…much less text. There was a bout of embarrassing Facebook commenting one night which ended up in Mike taking my phone away. "I was lookin for tha' backbuttin! Delete? but? tin? It's all too close smushed up to that bigonerightthere…"
Nordies is having their half-yearly sale, and I'll be dammed if I let breast cancer make me miss it. In my coherent hours, I've been scouring the site…and I have even received an email with a very large 'THANK YOU! Your Order Is On It's Way!!"
Hunh. I suspect most of it will go back (love that free shipping and free return shipping) but I may, may keep something to remember this particular time of my life. Maybe two little somethings. One for each boob?
ANYWAY. Here we go:
(DISCLAIMER: Holy Mother of God I Did NOT order all of this crap. It is all there in my wish list, but NOT everything made it over to my ordered list. Thankfully.)
1. A cashmere sweater, $200 instead of $300
2. An Oversized, Soft, Pooch-Forgiving Sweater, $44 instead of $68
The kind of thing I wear everyday.
3. Camo Sweatshirt, $27 instead of $42
For leggings days. With pink lipstick.
4. Letterman Sweater/Jacket, $35 instead of $54
I bought this. Two, inexplicably. Will be wearing mine with black skinnies. Like a playground-friendly suit.
5. Metallic Top, $79 instead of $128
A going-out top that is nursing-friendly and hides a pooch. Yessss.
6. Bauble, $163 instead of $245
A gorgeous bracelet.
7. Fancy Track Pants, $109 instead of $168
I have been looking and looking and looking for an affordable (read: under $600 c'mon people!!) version of these bad boys. I have high hopes for these. HIGH. HOPES.
8. Fake Leather Track Pants, $64 instead of $98
No really. I'm serious. These are fab.
9. Fake Leather Skinnies, $109 instead of $165
These are Joe's (and what I wished I had ordered) but I instead ordered J Brand's. Which, in this instance, don't look as good. Hmmmm….
1. Sexy, NAVY AND BLACK, Going Out Heels, $89 instead of $134
It's like they were made for me.
2. Funnel Boot, $109 instead of $169
I'm suck a sucker for a good funnel. These are like my fav black boots…but in kick-ass brown. Whoa.
3. Frye Studded Boots, $218 instead of $327
Cam was right. These are PERFECTION.
4. Taupe Buckled Boots, $125 instead of $188
I really like how soft these boots look. And the buckle. And the color. I honestly couldn't decide between these and the Frye's…..
So that's it, Mamas. How I've been distracting myself. I know M also has some seriously killer Nordie's sale finds which I think she'll be sharing – and if I know M, she'll have a few more bag/jacket finds than moi.
I gotta go – it's time for more meds. I cannot escape this strange feeling like I'm an inmate at a mental hospital…sneaking off to secretly indulge in some sick little hobby. Which would be, uh, you. Blogging, rather. I'm talking about blogging. Know what I mean? No? Ok. On that awkwardly incoherent note, I'm signing off.
(But really. I'm doing Ok.)
