Big Buckaroo: Hey honey, I know you have been wanting some new jeans/clothes, so why don't I give you a hundred dollars and you can go shopping by yourself on Saturday Morning?
The Park Wife: Huh? (puzzled look on face)
Big Buckaroo: shopping, money, no kids!
The Park Wife: Huh? (with expression on face of glee and surprise, is this my cheap, I mean frugal husband?)
Well, needless to say I am getting ready for my morning away. I am going to the nearest "big" town about 35 miles away. It can be called "big" because yes my friends, there is a Starbuck's! So, watch out, I am going to be sitting in Starbuck's deciding where to go to buy my new jeans in about an hour and a half.
To you big city money bags, be excited for me! We rural folks don't have many places to wear Manola Blanhik's, so some Gap jeans are a big deal.
For all the other Park Wives out there living off a state salary but enduring because of the Park amenities (and a good looking hubby), I will be thinking of you while sipping my hot beverage of choice!
I will let everyone know how fabulous my new jeans, etc. are soon, maybe even a picture or two!
Have a wonderful weekend,
The Park Wife
