I am on the corduroy throne on my laptop. I am shopping on eBay, hoping to find a gore-tex jacket in my size in a nice color for less than $50.
I was having no luck. Ugh. I was even tempted to try something for $15, but seriously – I should get something of quality. I’m on the verge of copying my friend Pete with his walking goal of 11,000 steps daily, I think I would do 10,000 steps. And setting such a goal, a daily commitment to that goal – you have to do it rain or shine. And I need to commit myself to that idea and already figure out how to deny myself excuses – starting with a nice rain jacket (I grew up in Seattle, walking in the rain was one of my favorite parts of childhood).
I think I’m going to go for North Face Venture 2 jacket – at retail, this is going to hurt. I hate paying retail, but I only want to look so hard, ya know?
