So a more detailed breakdown of this weekend:
So I went down to visit the Future-In-Laws this weekend.
Apparently his mom missed us all. I haven’t seen her since Christmas, so I figured it was time for me to go down, too.
We drove down early Saturday morning, and missed all the traffic, but my Og there were so many cops on the road. We counted at least 15 or 16, many of which had pulled someone over.
Anyway, we got down there around 11, and learned that his Aunt wanted to go shopping with us. So we waited until about 12, then decided we could at least hit the fabric store by ourselves. It’s this great fabric store with silks and stuff for cheap.
We did go there, but I felt rushed and wasn’t able to take the time to properly pick out a curtain. I did however find a beautiful green color for a sari, which I will take a picture of and show later…i just need to find matching material for the blouse and petticoat. His mom paid for it.
When we returned home, his Aunt was just pulling in at the same moment. So we went in, fed her, and then headed back out. We were aimed for a Super JoAnne’s his mom had heard off.
Well, the super JoAnne’s turned out to be about 40 minutes away! And when we got there it was less than impressive. Honestly, the one up here in Albany is bigger, probably because we only have the one for miles around.
We shopped around a little and then returned to another JoAnne’s. This one had a little tool cart I’d been looking for, for my garden tools. Since I have such a small garden, I only needed a small cart. But this cart turned out to be $40.00! No way I was going to buy a 1.5 foot caddy for $40. So we left that there.
Next we hit Whitepost farms and I bought a couple of plants to fill my last two planters, a broccoli plant and a celery plant. Should be fun.
We didn’t get back until after 5, and dinner was supposed to be at 5! His mom was joking that her husband would be mad. But it was Mother’s Day weekend after all.
We went to bed late, watching Mythbusters for two straight hours…what an interesting show. Then woke up the next morning, had breakfast, and were out of there by 11.
Lots of fun. :rolleyes: I am dying for a nice quiet weekend at home. This makes three weekends I haven’t been able to stay home. Still, got some nice stuff out of it.
