I haven't been out shopping in quite a while. Mostly because I am trying to save money. The cost of living down in DC is a little higher than it was in the Boston area. In the end, it was time to get some food as there was nothing in the house. I also went looking for a zipper to fix a skirt I had bought and decided spur of the moment to get a haircut. On top of that, I had to go into work today to finish up an experiment that had been delayed due to slow bacterial growth. It took me awhile but I finally got the correct colour and length zipper, and I picked up some groceries. The old addage of not food shopping on an empty stomach came back to haunt me. I bought a bit more lettice than I think I can eat. Guess I will be doing salads for awhile.
