    @Erie Is that an online store, or in person? I’ve debated one of those for years but the price has always held me back. We have a decent cordless one, but I can’t do the whole house on one charge. I’d be curious to know how many minutes you get off one charge!

    Also I would kill for a cordless floor steamer. The cord on mine is fairly short (it doesn’t seem like it is, but I have to unplug it constantly!) and every time I unplug, even if it’s for half a second, I have to wait like 30 seconds for the stupid thing to heat up again. It’s so dumb. Also we have the plug protectors because of L and I feel like I’m going to snap a nail off trying to pry the damn things out of the outlets.

    It's online! Here ya go: https://www.ebay.com/usr/dysonoutlet?ul_noapp=true

    This is the V10 Animal. Supposedly you can get a full hour of the V10 versus 40 mins with the V8, which is why I opted for it.

    I would also love a cordless steamer! I end up using wet Swiffer pads more often for the same reason.

    An hour! Oh wow. I would say I get maybe 20 minutes on my cordless vac. Thanks for the link!

    Just got 2 duffels to replace some luggage with broken zippers and such. The flowery one folds into itself! I love having the extra bag for in case.

    I’m looking at one of the Rothy’s totes and Z is like “...I’m just going to trust you that’s a reasonable price for a bag.”

    I’m wearing hospital scrubs and tennis shoes for the foreseeable future, we are getting away so cheap you don’t even know honey.

    Ok, I’ve spent way too much money in the last week (partly Ben’s auto ship and medicine stuff though). I definitely gained the Covid 15 and I was already a bit overweight so I’ve been having a lot of back pain and sciatica issues. I tried a manual treadmill and hated it. I got one of those assisted squat machines (I don’t know what else to call it but all it does is help you do squats) and it’s ok but limited to doing squats. I took reformer pilates for 7 years and I really miss it so I looked into one of the home reformers. The cheap ones had terrible reviews and use resistance bands instead of metal springs so I got this one:

    It comes with the rebounder so I can do jump board on it which is great cardio. Amazon had it prime and they had the monthly payment option so at least I can pay over the next 5 months. It cost $1200. It’s cheaper in the long run than restarting my membership at the pilates place which was, I think, $110 for 5 classes/month. I’m not excited about spending that much money but I am very excited to finally get something I know I’ll use.

    @virgo Pilates is godawful expensive. If you know enough to be able to do a home practice, I think getting your own reformer’s worth it. Someday I want to get my own tower, but I’m not at the point where it makes sense yet.

    @Afishwish yeah I definitely feel comfortable doing it on my own. I got tired of it about 1 1/2 years ago because I only liked one of the instructors and she started doing the same shit every class so I stopped going. Now I’ll be able to do all the moves that I like!

    I got a set of Figs scrubs. Hella expensive, and frankly it's not worth it imo. The only reason is because they're the only ones who make them close to my school colors, and I need gameday scrubs. Now I at least won't feel like a jinx.

    I totally thought about it, but when factoring in the costs plus my time plus my inevitable fuckup and having to do it again...

    Pink sheets. Such a small thing, but they make me feel good.

    I did a thing. I shouldn’t have but I keep seeing commercials for a website called The Real Real so I checked it out. It’s designer consignment. I found some Christian Louboutin’s that I freaking love and they’re in really good condition. I checked the return policy before buying and I can return them if they don’t fit or if I come to my senses about paying $430 for a pair of shoes that I’ll probably only wear once. They’re so pretty though! Black velvet with a rhinestone studded bow. :loveu: My guess is they’ll be too small. I’ve tried on CL’s before and a 10 was too small. These are a 10.5.

    If it makes you feel better, CLs are notorious for being uncomfortable a shit. As pretty as those are, they would have killed your feet.

    Yeah I wouldn't have lasted long in them. Probably would've killed my feet just going from the parking lot to the restaurant. Lol
