Peyton has been obsessed with going to the mall lately. I ask him what he does and he tells me he just walks around and hangs out with his friends. Last Friday, he wanted to go to the mall. I took him out there. I decided to stay because I didn’t want to drive all the way home and all the way back. It’s not like it’s a long drive, but it’s one that I don’t want to make numerous times. I have to go on three different highways to get there. I had some dinner at the food court and walked around. I got around 6,000 steps just in those few hours. I stopped by Lush and got some items for my Book Swap. I picked up a soap and bath bomb for myself. They gave me a good sized sample of their new lotion. It smells yummy. I stopped by Sephora and picked up two lip sticks (After Hours – very red color and First Class – orange red). I got my “Birthday Gift” from them. I didn’t know they did that in the birthday month. It was a cute little set. I browsed in a few other stores and continued walking around. I did come across Peyton and his friends one time. They were sitting on a couch, all on their phones. I went down to the cookie place and grab a few cookies and brought them back to them. I walked around some more and found a nice, comfy chair to sit in until they were ready to go.
On the way home, we stopped by Walmart to get some cat food. We are ALWAYS out of cat food. I feel like I buy it all the time. They had some Jillian Michael’s videos on clearance. I picked up a few of them. I rather do workout videos at home then go to the gym.
Saturday, I did some fundraising for the Travel Team games in Dallas. My friend, Dawna and I, as well as her husband painted another friend of mines living room and hallways. We had another team member join us for about two hours. She gave us a great donation and it will cover my room and Dawna’s room for the four days we are there. The other teammate gets the money for the hours she worked. My daughter and I went to finish us the trim on Sunday afternoon. It’s hard work and now I remember why I do not do manual labor.
We are traveling to Dallas my birthday weekend to play in a tournament. I am carpooling out there on Thursday and flying home on Monday. I decided to fly home because I didn’t want to stay in a car for eight hours after a three day tournament. I’m going to be exhausted and tired and that’s when I want to be at home.
On Sunday, I coached a practice. We had ten people there, but it was fun and worthwhile. We worked hard and everyone was exhausted afterwards.
I’ve been reading “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell. It’s YA Fiction. I like it, but I feel like the main character is kinda the feel sorry for me type. I’m sure it will all come up roses though, because that is how most of YA is. I pick up YA books everyone once and a while for an easy, quick read.
I’ve caught a cold or it’s bad allergies. I look like Rudolph right now. I have the Puffs with lotion and cold medicine, so I’m ready to conquer whatever has made my nose bananas. I made chicken tikka masala for dinner last night with the hopes that the spices would clear the nasal passages.
How as your weekend?
We have a mall less than a mile away from our house. I hardly ever go in there, and it is more of a teen hangout. Lots of empty stores though.ReplyDelete
half-car, half-fly trip to Dallas sounds like a good plan. And fun!
The one indoor mall we have left has quite a few stores. It is totally a teenagers hangout. I was the odd person out. :)Delete
Oak Park Mall? I live super close to there. I'm going to Dallas next weekend too!ReplyDelete
Yep! That's his favorite place to go now. I hope it's nice in Dallas. I'm excited to get out of town for a while.Delete
Wow! 6000 steps in such a short period is awesome! And yay for free gifts during your birthday month.ReplyDelete
I hope your tournament goes well. And that your birthday weekend in Dallas is a success. (And that you are over your cold in time for your planned travel.)
I did end up going to the doctor. I have/had a double ear infection. She went a different route and put me on a nasal med and steroids (I'm not digging the side effects and will make sure I'm never given them again). I'm feeling better physically, but anxiety(not sure if that's the correct word to use?) is through the roof and I'm not sleeping well. It's only a six day dose though!Delete
