What a day...

Today I finally started my Christmas shopping. I even got the kids their winter boots as they needed them right away. I had a blast hubby was with me and he was spending like a champ today! We had enough bags in our hands as we were leaving Walmart. And wouldn't you know it the alarm goes off and this speaker comes on. We stopped dead in our tracks. We looked around and not ONE person stopped to see what or why the alarm was going off. (it was packed at Walmart today too!)I told my hubby to lets just go as no one is coming. He didn't want to in case we got stopped in the parking lot. As it would look terrible. So the alarm stopped as we stepped back. But my hubby was getting upset and held the bags up to make the alarm go off so someone would come. About 3 to 5 minutes later this woman who works there came over to us and rudely said "Give me your bags and follow me". My husband and I just looked at each other and followed her. I said to her" Why are you treating us like criminals?" I mean we had the receipt. turned out she was just scanning all the bags so we could leave without the alarm going off. But sheesh, I swear everyone must have seen us having to give her our bags and follow her. It was so embarrassing. I can't remember what all I said to her about the way she handled the situation. But she was lucky I was running short on time today or I would have had the manager come out. Anyways this woman knew I was upset as I grabbed my bags back out of her hands. I was just in shock as to how not ONE person looked as the alarm was going off. I think some people are half a sleep these days.
Anyways, I ended up buying a spice rack full of spices! I am excited to start using some that I never have before and using more of SP recipes! I also got some more Clemintines as I can eat those like they are going out of style.
Tomorrow I head to the indoor track for the walking meet!
