Miss Lori is not a slave to numbers and site stats

If you frequent this site you know that I had a difficult time in Elementary school. I had few friends and experienced frequent bullying. Which is why I threw a lot of parties. Seems crazy.

10 things Miss Lori learned about Kmart holiday giveaway

There weren’t carts of merchandise stacked up in the aisles waiting to be restocked. There were instead wide walkways with big bold signs suspended above telling you what you could find in each section. And that was just the beginning of what I discovered. Here is a list of 10 things I learned about this Kmart yesterday: [Read more…]
