I ran around a lot today at church. I kinda like those mornings because it certainly makes everything flow quickly... but it wipes me out too.
After church I did some errands - the usual things:
- took back overdue library books
- returned some pants that I decided that I didn't want after all
- paid for a shirt that Avery stole from Target...
Avery was sitting in one of those oversized big kid carts... the one with the large two seater attached to the handle - so he wasn't very visible. We finished our shopping and it was quickly getting to be time to pick up Isaiah. I headed to the check-out where all the kids started doing their part to empty the contents of the cart onto the table, while I did my part to empty the contents of my wallet. We chatted with the cashier - Lillie always seems to draw people out into conversation. We grab our bags and wheel that big ol' monster cart out to the van... that's when Avery slides off his seat and reveals the big ol' monster shirt still in his lap. Great.
I asked him, "Avery, did you give the shirt to the lady so we could pay for it??" He answered yes but after inspecting the receipt I found he was mistaken. No time to rectify the error that very moment, so we settled up accounts today... a whole $3. My conscience is clear.
Anyway, after the errands I've been pretty much veggin' here at home. Longing for an early bedtime - we'll see. Then I look at the date and realize that 2 months from today is Christmas Eve! Yeah, I'm sorry I brought it up too. *yawn*
