Eight hours later and I am home wondering who that crazy woman was that dragged me around from place to place putting things into shopping carts like a drunken coupon clipper.
I did go to the lab...check.
When I got into the car to head to the library, I noticed that my phone wasn't on. One quick check of the battery confirmed what I should have known...dead dead dead. So off to the AT&T store for a car charger (which I should have had anyway, but seeing how I never leave the house I figured I'd just get around to it eventually.) (Today was eventually, apparently.)
I did go to the library...check. But instead of using the drive up thingie to just return the books I went inside and browsed the new fiction section and checked out another three books.
This is where it went a little off the rails.
My car somehow magically turned itself from the library to the Targets. I did get a few things I did need, like toothpaste and plastic spoons and Quilted Northern and cotton balls, but as I was passing through the cosmetic section, my eye went to the nail polishes.
I was immediately drawn to a lovely pinky brown type color and figured it would be swell for September. So into the cart it went with a few treats I fished out of the dollar bins:
Guess what the name of the polish is? I swear, I didn't know this until I looked at it moments ago because I did not have my glasses with me in the store:
What kind of self-respecting Spinster Stitcher would I be if I didn't have my fingers and toes painted with a nail polish color called IN STITCHES!?
A disciplined gal would have called it a day at this point, but this is me we're talking about.
I went to the Michael's.
My intention was to pick up a few skeins of floss for my next project, but I somehow managed to make it to the planner aisle. Y'all know how much I'm loving playing with my Erin Condren life planner, so it would make complete sense that I would opt for a Happy Planner this time, right? I'm still a little undecided as to whether or not I will make the switch next year, but in the meantime, I have some new stickers to play with.
After all of this running around, I went totally and completely insane and ended up at Five Guys for a burger, fries, and....oh my gosh I can't believe I'm confessing this....please don't think less of me or delete me from your Palm Pilot....I....had....a....diet....Coke.
I gave up dietCoke some time ago because my nurse case manager told me to, but I just couldn't take it anymore and I totally caved. It was only a small one, but I can tell you that the five or six sips of it that I managed to have while waiting for my burger were....nirvannah on steroids.
Bosco and Stewey are wondering why, after all of this crazypants shopping, I couldn't be bothered to get them anything, so as soon as I get my wits about me, we're going to head over to the PetSmart for a toy or two.
So that's that for the day. I promise...back to stitchy updates tomorrow. In addition to some progress on Olympic Good Stuff, I have the reveal of a project selection that will finally convince you that I am, in fact, a few bubbles off plumb.
Happy, happy, happy day to you and yours! WooHoo!
