Well, this day is over and I need a nap.
First, we tried to get a library card, but all the libraries were closed on Friday…what the heck is up with that. Budget, smudget. Get the rich to pay their fair share and the library can be open every day.
Then, we did my errands. And then, we went to the mall…da-da-da-dum….
This was the first hour and I was already out of focus.
There was lots of shopping. There was one dress that I wish we had bought because it was perfect on her…her response, “where would i wear it”. and I didn’t have an answer because I’m not sure the question was relevant, but we left it there.
This was the only thing I had to buy that I didn’t like and it was only $5, so no harm, no foul.
We had lunch; a panini for me and a fruit smoothie for her. And, then we shopped some more. I actually got a shirt for $7, so yay, me. I got something, too.
I did an awful lot of this.
It was early and this was the first of several bags I ended up hauling like a donkey.
And, I signed my name a bunch of times.
Then, we did a makeover at her request.
And, we hit the clinique booth for acne treatment. It’s what I used to use, so I feel good about it. Hope it works as well for her. Course, they don’t sell the same stuff they had when I had acne. But, we managed to spend a small fortune, in hopes that the first day of school will be a “clear” day.
And, then I surprised her with a manicure. Was supposed to be a mani/pedi, but she was ashamed for them to see her feet??? What’s up with that. She’s 14. What could be wrong with her feet. But, if she didn’t want to show them to the lady we were paying, I’m not asking to see them. We went to the salon that’s owned by on of Syd’s friend’s parents (did I punctuate that right?), so I felt good about it, but heavens, a mani is expensive for what it covers.
And, now, I’m going to take a nap, because this old man is plum tuckered out!
Lots of sale clothes. Girl knows the value of a dollar.
My feet and legs ache, like all get out. I refuse to cook supper.
Checkbook empty. Girl happy. Special day with dad.
