Let me make it clear up front … I am not a shopper. Internet shopping was created just for me … find what I like, order it and be done with it … all from the comfort of my home. If I do have to get out and actually go to a store, I have a list, I know what I want, I go, find it and buy it … and then I’m done.
Yet last night I spent 4 hours going from store to store, shopping for Easter gifts for the Ts. When DD was little, I always got her something special for Easter. So of course, I have to do the same for the Ts, right? I know that DD is trying to declutter (she’s been working on that for a while now … and moving at the end of this month has given her additional incentive!), so I wanted to get the Ts something that they’d like, something that wouldn’t just add to the clutter that abounds when you’ve got 6 people in a house. With some input from DD, I’m going to get them pillow pets. Of course, each T has an animal that they want … and as popular and widely available as these pillow pets are, it wasn’t easy finding THE 4 pets that the Ts wanted. I found 3 of the requested pets … but not the one that T#1 wanted. After I got home, I spent a couple of hours of searching online, I found the last pillow pet. Whew!
DH seems to be doing a little better, although I’m not sure if he’s ready to admit that just yet. I wouldn’t call him a hypochondriac, but he does have a tendency to dramatize his aches and pains and illnesses (I say that with love!).
Today is going to be a rainy day … we already had a good bit of rain overnight and again this morning. Somehow it’s a little easier to go in to work when it’s rainy outside.
