…wow, that was hard. I guess I am officially addicted to my blog, because without being able to post, I was seriously jonesing for a fix!
But now I am back.
As usual, I have been busy. lets just say that is baseline, so I won’t mention it again.
This week we had soccer tryouts, so in addition to the usual running around routine, everyday for three days in a row, we had to go into town, in the evening, really I should say into the next town because the location of soccer tryouts is almost 2 towns away. But you know, I make the best of things, there is a great Target and a huge Lowes near the field so I built in trips there.
BUT, On Monday – I realized at the checkout counter of Target that I had left my debit card in my jacket – at home, and thus had to make the round trip back home, grab the card, and get back to Target and the soccer field…in time…which I did!
…and on Tuesday, I realized at the checkout counter of Lowe’s that I had LOST my debit card somewhere between the gas station at home where I had filled up, and Lowe’s, therefore resulting in me, shoulder deep with rubber gloves on, digging in the trash at the gas station at 9pm, my sweaty tired daughter in the car. Never found the card. sad face.
…On Wednesday…I decided to keep it simple, ran a simple quick cash errand, and brought a magazine and sat at the tryouts and read and watched my son try out. Relaxed. Still have not found the Debit card…sad face with tears.
…On Thursday, had appointments in town so had to go in anyway, found a hutch for Phoebes room and I successfully delivered a painting that I did in one day for a friend to take to her sister for her birthday. I am kicking myself because I forgot to take a FINAL photo, but got this one when I was almost finished…I LOVE Labs!
…TGIF…Friday the 13th…I worked on my painting (see below) and then taught Art while a plumber crawled around in our foot deep crawl space and gave us some bad news about our old pipes. I PROMISE never to bring POTTY talk to my blog, so that is all I will say about that!
anyway, prettier things.
with all my travels …I had some scores this week!
I popped into one of my favorite “just about everything but the kitchen sink” vintage store and spontaneously bought this painting…
