Just Stuff

So, tomorrow is my folks’ last day in town.  We haven’t really done much. Dad took the kids to a movie yesterday and to Chuck E Cheese today.   Mom and I went to lunch today and stopped by Barnes and Noble.  Mom is slow. 😀  We had to leave quickly because the plumber came while we were gone and I needed to get home to pay him.  He had to clear the upstairs toilet.  MissCreativity dropped a mechanical pencil in it.  We could not get it out/loose.  Dean was upstairs, in the bathroom for about 30 seconds.  No. Really.  THIRTY SECONDS.  $50, thank you.  Anyway, back to mom.  She was looking and looking.  I’d gone off to the kids’ section.  In the 8 minutes between the time we arrived and the time CarKiller called to tell me the plumber arrived, I had loaded my arms with $200 worth of books!  (thank heaven for the educator’s discount!)  Mom had nothing, so we’re going back tomorrow.  Darn. 🙂


On Wednesday, Mom and I went to Sears.  I need a new over-the-counter microwave/hood deal.  I’ve actually needed to replace it for a while, but since I had a countertop one in the garage, I had just been putting off getting another.  I was waiting for a sale (and kept forgetting to look for one!)  I found a new one, on sale, at Sears. It is coming tomorrow.  Dad and Carkiller will install it.  Nice!


Coming tomorrow:  Pictures of my “new” kitchen!

    I’ve had to quit going into that particular store just for that reason.

    It’s a dangerous place.
