Update: attempt #1 at spending my card.

 Alright after a conversation with my husband I am spending it on me. We did family pictures with frames already for our Moms.

My card arrived today so I wandered over to my nearest (6.4 miles) K-Mart in search of shorts.

No luck. I found shorts, that were ok if you are the Mom who likes you Bum hanging out... or if you needed an 18W or bigger.

Sorry, I have kids that go from 14 to 2, I don't need to look like a (insert adjective of choice)..... I am not even 100% sure what size I am as I can never find womens jeans I like so I wear a mans 29x32 and they are still "short" when I sit down.

Going to try the next closest Kmart which is 13 miles (then they hit 16 and 17 in opposite directions).

 

I haven't yet migrated to another K*mart, and seeing how I leave for sunny FL on Wed. and need to be packed by Tuesday I probably won't make it. So I will use my GC on something else.

I did go to K*Mart's website, and all the shorts I found that had greater than a 5" inseam were at Sears :(

I will confess that part of my problem finding shorts is that I am NOT a clothes horse. I am very partial to several pairs of plain blue jeans (in this case shorts) so that I can mix and match easier (I have 2 "nicer" pairs of shorts/Capri's already, but I have to be very specific with the shirts I wear). I am also very picky! I like them to be tighter on me and have the leg of my shorts just a few inches above my knee. When I bed over I don't want my 15 yr. old sons friends thinking (or hoping) that I the next Stifflers Mom (KWIM) or Mrs. Robinson...lol

 I haven't simply beacuse after too many years og baggy hand-me-downs growing up (well think Harry Potter one and Dudley's clothes on Harry), that i have to have my tight fitting. So I need to be able to try them on. If I can find free shipping and a store online that has a good size chart (wasit/hip measurements) and a easy return policy I may give it a shot.
