i need a day
~to LEISURELY shop and/or window shop. or just do things that are best enjoyed alone and UNrushed.
~I want to do some thrift store shopping. I keep reading about it on other blogs and surely there are some great things to find around here, but I never have time alone to go searching.
~I had plans to hit up the scrapbook store last night (with coupon in hand), the one I never go to and which recently re-located. O was to arrive home at 4:30ish and my plan was to bolt out the door as they close at 6pm. Instead @ 2pm, O's company decided that he needed to drive back to the job site 2 hours away on emergency and work possibly 'til midnight...there went my free/alone time.
~You see I cannot even go window shopping with E because over the past couple weeks he has developed a strong (and I mean STRONG) dislike towards his stroller and shopping buggies, in other words, he WILL NOT sit in one and it's quite the battle to get him in it and then buckle him in and then listen to him scream while all heads turn my way. Yeah, I'd just rather avoid it altogether.
~So until this child comes to terms with the fact that shopping is a part of his mother's life (albeit mostly grocery shopping), then I won't be taking him to any stores.
~In addition to the stroller & shopping buggies, he is also not interested in being in the bike trailer! Yeah, the BRAND NEW BIKE TRAILER that we JUST got and have used only TWO times! Great!! He better get thru this phase and quick.
~That means I'm virtually home bound when I'm alone with E. Kind of sucks cuz I like to go places, besides the drive-thru.
~The only time I ever get a sitter for E is when I'm going to school/work. I've never had a sitter come so I can do anything fun, but I think we've gotten to the point where I'm going to have to do that.
