On Thursday I ran out of the yarn I was using for a project -- I had thought I had more than plenty, but I was wrong. Since then, I've been to nearly countless stores in 2 different states -- and indeed today spent several hours driving to every near-local store I could think of, even the unlikely ones. And searching for stores I thought existed that didn't (anymore?). During a small break when I was home, I went to eBay and found what I thought might be the right stuff -- there were 4 skeins left -- but they described it with a word I didn't remember being part of the description for my yarn, so I didn't buy it. I ran out to a few more places. At 7:03 I pulled up at the Jo-Ann's, which closed at 7. Came home. The eBay was sold out. Most of the Google hits take me to a Jo-Ann site, which no longer has that color. And of course the first Google hit is that one eBay auction. Taunting me.
I hate shopping. Especially when it's unsuccessful.
