Travel and Shopping

Posted by on 27 December 2008

Today we had to take K to my parents.  She stays with them twice a year.  Once during summer vacation and once for Christmas break.  She loves her time out there and it’s their time.  This year it seemed so sudden after Christmas.  She’s out there for a whole week and already has her time out there planned. 

Mom and Dad plan to enjoy this time too!!  We have all kinds of household chores to get done that we try to ignore while she’s here keeping us busy.  We’re also going to have date night.  We’ll probably go someplace for dinner and see a movie.  Hey, it’s not exciting, but it’s something we don’t normally get to do!!

On our way to meet my parents, we stopped in OKC to go to Target.  That store was cleaned out!!  I was looking for a convection oven for my mom.  They don’t have much shopping in their little town, so I try to find things here or in OKC when we go through.  I didn’t find what I was looking for, so I told my parents that I’d stop at Kohl’s on the way home.  I really enjoy going to that store.  It was a successful stop too!!  Got mom what she needed and picked up a couple small goodies for us!!  I also went to Mardel to look for homeschool books.  I got a Physical Science lab book for 90% off!!  It was like $3 for it!!  You can’t beat that with a 10′ pole, despite the fact she won’t be using it for science for a couple years.  Text books don’t change that much and I can adjust for that price.

Oh what to do first with all this time alone!?!?

    Well first of all, you scan the science book and decide what you want to share with me so that I can use it also. 😉

    I love Kohl’s, I always find something fun there – another store I enjoy is Bed, Bath and Beyond – they have the neatest items and the store is always so clean and bright with lots of employees. 🙂 that reminds me, I need to go see if they have any after Christmas stuff

    *Sigh* Another lucky bargain hunter. A day will come when I catch that luck.

    So are you missing Miss K yet? I bet it’s real quiet.

    Kathy, it’s the teacher’s edition of the lab book. I absolutely love homeschooling, but then I look at a book like that one and just wonder what I’m doing!! LOL

    I used to go to Linen N’ Things in Wichita Falls, but it closed. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond once. Maybe I need to check it out again!! HEHE Kohl’s is awesome!!

    Oh Debbie, I don’t get lucky all the time. This just happened to be a good trip for me. I like that!!

    Yes, I miss her. Yesterday was alright, but hubby had to be gone this morning and he’ll be gone the next 2 mornings doing final out and stuff. The house is really really quite and I get bored despite having things to do. Morning is really hard because I should be teaching!! LOL

    I am sure you are missing her so much. I would say go get some sleep, leave the P.J.’s on. MMMMMM….well, maybe there is not a lot to do without the family. OH, I dread those days.

    HA!! We stay in pj’s most of the time….remember, homeschool!! HEHE I do miss her though. The house is quiet, but at the same time, it’s a little nice this way. I dread that day too…..at least now I know she’s coming home!!
