Extended coverage

I mentioned yesterday that we went shopping for about 7 hours on Saturday. I have to get one thing clear ...
I normally dislike shopping. If I want or need something, I go get it and I'm done. What happened on Saturday was the result of Hayden needing a suit for a wedding he's attending this coming weekend. We decided to go to a clothing store where a friend works (a friend in the program) as they were having a half price sale on men's clothing. We each bought a new suit -- for the price of one.
We're also remodelling a bathroom so we went looking at an array of fixtures. We were then near The Galleria (the 4th largest shopping center in the USA) so we decided to look around. That's where we then spent about 4 hours, including eating dinner there. We also got a few small accessories for the suits.
Mainly, it was about spending sober time together. It wasn't about the shopping. Neither of us are movie goers, so it was just something to do on a Saturday night.
Now that I've got that cleared up ...


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my HP made the Earth round so I will never know what's around the corner

that I was asked to fill in to chair the Wednesday noon speaker meeting this month and I already have some really fine speakers lined up

for priorities and an ability to see them

that I am more of a doer than a wisher

for this knowledge ...
that when I've got my shit together, all I have is a big pile of shit

"Each indecision brings its own delays and days are lost lamenting over lost days... What you can do or think you can do, begin it. For boldness has magic, power, and genius in it."
-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

LOL..you're so funny..explaining the shopping ;)
I have to agree with the big pile of shit theory. I don't know why I think it's so important sometimes to get my shit together....my shit ain't all that important.

Sometimes we can enjoy doing things we formerly hated when we are with someone we love. I am glad you have that person by your side.

Dear dAAve,

Well Precious, you didn't owe anyone an explanation for your long shopping spree. I know you took some grief over it but it was all in fun.

I just hope your "excessories" match the color of your suits !

I agree with MC. When we're with the person we love, we do all sorts of things that we would likely not do alone. It's about togetherness. I'm all for it.
