Just another day in Paradise

I took Ethan and friend to school this morning. Then I decided to go over to JC Penney to look at a few things, but I thought I'd take this back road that I had been on, ONCE, when following a friend. Hmmm... I ended up making this terrific circle around the shopping center, took an extra fifteen minutes to do so, but I made it! And other than the rain and the puddles of water on the road, it was a lovely drive.

Penney's had what I wanted, but not at the price I wanted. So I meandered some more around the store. I eased by the shoes, where they were having a sale, but did not make eye contact with any of the shoes. I knew if I did, it would be over for me. Aaron and I are talking about buying a joint anniversary gift for each other, and since I know what the cash budget is, I could very easily see myself spending that amount in pretty shoes. And socks. And getting a massage. Boy, do I want a massage like nothing else right now. Anyhow, I decided to be a good woman and just buy Ethan some fall jammies. Soft jammies, since he has this thing about clothing texture. Fleece is good. But he hates feetie jammies. Which is a bit odd, since he prefers to wear socks to bed half the time...

I then came home and pondered whether or not I should be productive. I decided to take the tags off of Ethan's new things and start a load of laundry. Then I made myself a cup of pregnancy tea. Then I stroked and snuggled with Carl a little bit. He purred mightily and head butted me on the nose. I think I may have done something else, but I'm not sure what. Oh! I talked to a friend on the phone for a few minutes. Then I looked through my Entertainment Book for coupons.

And then I had a bit of time for self analysis and introspection. Always a good thing to do to yourself on a dreary rainy day. Really. :) I would tell you all the thoughts that went through my head and what my conclusions were, but suffice it to say that I am satisfied with who I am and where I am, but will continue to strive to improve.

Ultrasound on Tuesday. Anniversary on Tuesday. Anxiety nips at the heels of my thoughts quite frequently.

Happy Friday! And if I don't post tomorrow, Happy First Day of Autumn!

Hope things are going well down South

Is that back road taking you over to Tylersville Road? :) I remember a back road we had you guys follow us in your car from dinner out once. Sorry about that, for a person to have never been on the "back road" it may have seemed a little long, for you to follow us. At the time it was the only way I knew how to get there.

Now I am in MO and adventuring new back roads to take.
