Sorry, Shopper's Drug Mart. It's not you, it's me

Okay, so Shoppers Drug Mart has always been my favourite place to burn some time between picking up my children, to get out of the house and hide, or to simply give me a pick-me-up when feeling like some shopping therapy. And who doesn't love to earn points just for shopping so that I can buy more, more, more!

But then something happened...I fell in love with all natural body products that are more artisanal in nature and use only real ingredients. Then I realized that I can make my VERY OWN Shoppers Drug Mart whenever I have an idea for a new product. And this is how it goes...I am sitting doing work, making my lunch for work the next day, reading a magazine, checking out pinterest, etc....and all of a sudden bam! A brilliant idea hits me and I start pulling out the coconut oil, grapeseed oil, essential oils, zesting lemons, chopping up lemongrass, and looking like a mad scientist in my kitchen while I mix it up over a hot stove.  This is a common occurence in my house.

My children come and check out my newest creation, give it a sniff and play the "guess what essential oil is in this" game. And on and on this game goes.  They have actually realized that the chemistry classes they have to take in high school may come in handy one day, as will business 101 classes, as I suspect they too will have this entrepreneurial affliction hit them one day.

So this is now my reality...the other day I had some time to kill and since I had already reached my one Starbucks coffee limit, I found myself pulling into Shoppers Drug Mart for some entertainment and guilty pleasure.  But I had no list of things to buy. I felt sad and lost as I wandered the aisles all alone.  It was a 5x points day and I had nothing, nothing, nothing to show for it.  This has never happened to me before. Then it hit me, I may need to just come to terms with the fact that I have changed. For the better I think. It happens. It's nobody's fault. Nobody to blame. People just grow apart and discover different passions as they age.

 

Bottom line, Shoppers let's still be friends.  It's not you, it's me.
