I’ve been powering down water for my kidneys and the Bronchitis.  I leaked a bit before all this, but lately I leak every time I cough.  Flood sometimes.

Yes, I went to the toilet before we left the house.  Yes, we left on a round of errands which included Amvets Thrift Store, grocery store, brunch, then home before he headed toward the museum.  As soon as we got there to our first stop, I knew I was doomed.  I took two steps down one row and began to leak.  It was really awful.  This store is not noted for letting its customers use their bathrooms.

She told me I could…it was like Christmas. 

By the time I got to the back of the store, I was wringing wet.  In the bathroom there was no toilet paper, but there were seat covers.  Back out in the aisles, the thought dawned on slow me that I was walking in a Thrift Store.  They had pants…denims that said they were my size.  They had nice pink underpants.  They even had a Levi Coat that I could try on.  George came up with the final touch, a pair of bright red flats.  A whole new wardrobe and all at half thrift store price too.

It made it all a little better.

I came directly home after brunch and showered.


  1. I love a women who sees opportunity. I have had my phases with your issue. Right now I seem to be be holding my own. If it comes back I have gone ahead and purchased pads specifically for this. Do some of those Kegel exercises for help. It is a sign of the times. We are going to remain strong about this!!

  2. Now that is making lemonade out of lemons. Great idea and a great save at a bargain price. Well done.

  3. Yep... not a fun time at all, but you survived it and got new duds to boot!! LOL Healing hugs to you!!




  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
