and all I have to show for it is (um, drumroll, please): a fresh manicure, four new shirts and two pair of jeans, new makeup (and the staff at the Lancome counter were friendly and quick), a couple of books, and in the buy two, get one free video sale at Barnes & Noble I scored "Keeping Mum" as one of my titles. No more waiting on Netflix... I own my own copy, thank you very much.
I managed to get all the mall stuff done in less than an hour, with about another half hour killed in the bookstores ( I went to two, seeing as I was unfettered by the offspring), and on the way home I got to get Chic-fil-a, because the cheeseburger socialists weren't in the car, and then I was in and out of the grocery so fast I made myself dizzy. Those U-Scans are great. I had to get cream cheese, since my twelve year old is making carrot cake. How much does her mommy love her?
I'm off to knit night later this evening, where I hope to get one of the tiny sleeves finished. I completed the sweater body and button band yesterday (my first completed one ever, with no swearing or anything...almost), and had planned on skipping knit night tonight, because of tomorrow's "girl's night out". The problem with canceling a regular night thing is not everyone gets the 'memo' and then someone calls and says they need help. So, I'm going in, because I couldn't say no to a knitter. The truly pathetic thing is I didn't even send out invites for the girl's night out, because 'Boris' accidently threw them out, so I'm not sure how many are coming to the spa party. Free foot soaks and exfolliations at Clementine's if you're in the neighborhood of 66 S. Water St. in Franklin Wednesday night! Gotta get ready, and youngest son needs lap-time with mom before she disappears again. Latah. C
