This weekend was far less productive than it should have been. Not that it wasn’t productive, but mostly that I still have 4 chapters of Shock Doctrine to read. We installed a shelf in our garage, and after we take a trip to the storage unit, will be able to put his car in the garage for the winter. I forgot to take pictures, though, so you’ll just have to trust me.
Saturday while , his dad and his brother were watching the new 007, I was [by choice] stranded at Southdale Mall, where I attempted to find a purse. You see, both my big purse and my little purse are falling apart. The little one has maybe a week left of life in it, tops. The big one has months of life left, but it continues to look crappier and crappier because it’s got a big huge hole in it. So, I attempted to use the mall to find a cute wristlet (that didn’t cost $50 like the Fossil ones I’ve fallen in love for). No dice. Apparently no one really makes wristlets. Marshall’s could have had a good selection, but they only carry big purses. Bummer for me. The last four purses I’ve bought online, so I’m having a bit of a problem finding one in a brick-and-mortar store. Maybe this is why I’ve bought time online…. I know I said I would make both of them, but I just haven’t had the time, and considering their rapid deterioration, and the fact that going purseless is not an option, I think I’m at the point where money can be spent.
I did, however, find new dress socks (trouser socks that I’ve been so desperately needing now that it’s “winter”), and kitchen towels for for Christmas that I can embroider (and a set for us as well, because they were cute and cheap). So, it wasn’t a total bust.
Sunday I worked very hard and finished my contribution to the Doll Quilt Swap 5 [link removed]. I can only show you this now, because until the intended has received it, I can’t talk too much about it or I might give away who it’s for.
We blitzed the grocery store last night in 15 minutes! For the whole week’s worth of groceries! And then we went to the gym. And then finally, at 8:30 Sunday night, I got one measly chapter of homework read.
Tonight, has an appointment at Lenscrafters, where he will be getting an eye exam and new glasses (which means that two of my three “nag items” as far as his health is concerned will be taken care of, and I only have to get him to go to the doctor for an annual check-up, and when I say annual, I mean “at least once in the 3+ years that I’ve known you, please, now that you have excellent health insurance that means you can go for free). I’m going to try to get some homework done while waiting for him to do that, though I might also stop in at Gap Body, or browse into Macy’s to stare lustfully at their Fossil purses.
Once I’m caught up on homework, I need to go to JoAnn’s to get the last of the fabric for ‘s quilt, and start on some Christmas presents that I’m making (“some” might be an understatement, but many are quite small).
