Daggone! Talk about shop till you drop! I thought DIL and I were going to have to call a cab to get us from one store to another. That girl can do some serious shopping!
We had a good weekend. Did a ton of shopping yesterday. I got a Calvin Klein jacket for $50.00. Not something I would ordinarily have bought but DIL kept raving about how fantastic it looked so I bought it. I also got a really cute lime green coat for the low, low price of $16.99, two Ann Taylor sweaters for $20 each, a pair of Liz Claiborne jeans for $20.00 and three really great Bass sweaters for DH. Got a few jewelery trinkets and two tops that would have Clinton and Stacy going ballistic because they’re way too young for me and they’re flimsy, flirty little pieces of fluff that I shouldn’t even own but they were only $4.00 each so I figured what Stacy and Clinton don’t know won’t hurt them. I’ve never seen the mall so busy. They were packed! The Christmas shopping has begun.
Had a great time with DS, DIL, and the grandkiddies. DIL was at her best and we stayed up until after midnight argueing with DS and DH about politics and drinking way too much wine. Poor little Scout is being eaten alive by poison ivy or poison oak or something. He was over here last weekend and he kept jumping into piles of leaves and rolling around in them. I don’t see how he could have gotten it, but he seems to have contacted poison ivy and they sent him home from school Wednesday because of the rash. DIL has been treating it with benadryl, hydrocortisone ointment, and Calamine lotion but it just keeps getting worse. He was looking better yesterday evening and then woke up this morning like something out of a horror movie. She’s doing exactly what the doctor said but she’s taking him back tomorrow because he doesn’t seem to be responding. Poor little guy.
I feel relaxed, refreshed, and ready to start another week. Just 1 1/2 weeks until we get to head down to Florida!
