Myrtle Beach, SC

Yesterday was a great day. Stan took me for breakfast at the IHOP and then we drove around until time for the stores to open.

In the past, whenever Stan suggested he take me shopping to buy me some new clothes, I've sort of back pedaled and changed the subject. I was afraid for him to know how much weight I've gained and my new sizes. I was afraid he would be disgusted at me. But I guess, due to feelings about it, I didn't give him enough credit because this time when he suggested taking me shopping and I was doing my usual ignoring and acting like I hadn't heard him, he insisted. So I took a deep breath and told him why I didn't want him to take me shopping. He said it didn't matter to him and that he wanted to buy me something nice. So I tentatively let him have that little part of my heart. We went to the Tanger Outlets and went to the Dress Barn where they have Misses and Woman's sizes. He picked out and I tried on and I bought quite a few outfits. I can't tell you how much it meant for me that he didn't care about my weight or sizes and he was good and generous. I was almost crying when we left and when I told him how I felt. He hugged me and said we were all getting older and we all changed and he didn't love me any less. He even told me he thought I was still attractive and the new clothes looked really good on me! I just about boo hoo'd! I will never forget this shopping trip. I even took photos and plan to journal this on a scrapbook page.

So we had a great time shopping together. We went into one store and found some magnets that were so funny that we both laughed and bought a hand full. Then we went to the Foxworthy store and died laughing at all the tshirts and sayings. I wish they had one of those stores around us!

Then we drove down to Murrell's Inlet and bought some fresh shrimp. He went on the beach to read and nap and I read and napped in the RV. While I took the dogs for a walk, he boiled the shrimp and we peeled shrimp and finished the salad. Gosh, it was good! I cleaned up. I went to be early and read. I have barely watched TV this week but I've read a couple of books.

This morning I made breakfast and then cleaned up and showered. I took the dogs for a short walk and then headed to the coffeehouse to get online. This coffeehouse is so quiet and has soothing music and good coffee. I wonder if it will be this quiet when the season gets cranked up this weekend?
