Gymnastics Equipment…Mean Girls…I Need a Vacation

Posted on: October 5th, 2012 by

It was National ‘Mean Girls’ day recently, and I know you’ll make fun of me but I LOVE that movie!  So, as offended as I was, when this next thing happened to me, I thought it very appropriate:

I’m going away this weekend on a much needed mini vacation to Catalina Island.  I’m really looking forward to turning off my phone and just disconnecting for a while.  I haven’t really had any time to just relax and enjoy the amazing weather we’ve had this summer (I know…sad). 

So anyway…I went to Nordstrom yesterday looking for some swim shorts and when I asked the sales clerk she replied “That season is over, you can try Ross.”  I was mortified!  But being National Mean Girls Day I took it as festive. Plus, she really got me thinking about how fast the seasons are changing! That means the Holidays are fast approaching!!!  I somehow always forget to start shopping, so I guess I’m grateful?  Now I’m stressing out and starting to think about how I can get the most gifts for my buck. Getting to the mall to shop is not an easy task, especially when I start thinking about lack of parking and the unorganized shelves. I really would prefer to do all my shopping from home, if only I could not pay for shipping. 

 I wish I knew more people that needed dance equipment, gymnastics or cheerleading equipment.  We have many great products that are really affordable.   In fact, that is even before you take into account that a lot of the dance and gymnastics equipmentBallet floor, not just for twinkle toes! includes shipping!  That really makes life easier because when I am budgeting how much money I will spend on all the people in my life, I rarely think about shipping costs.  I also never think about shipping errors, which is odd because I see how often shipments get lost or damaged.  By the way, if that ever happens follow the procedures from who you are ordering from and you will be protected. 

We can do everything we’re supposed to, to get your cheer mats or other package and out on time, and stuff still happens!  You wouldn’t believe how often a storm delays a plane, or a truck breaks down or some overwhelmed delivery guy accidentally delivers the package to the wrong address.  I figure I should probably start shopping now, and attempt to avoid all the chaos or at the very least have enough time to rectify the problem. Oh well…as soon as quitting time hits, I’m stress free!
