On the Mend

I *think* Quinn is on the mend.  He has been fever free for 24 hours now.  With that being said, he is sneezing every two minutes (and then he blesses himself after each and every sneeze), which is then followed by coughing. 

Since Chris teaches Sunday School, he got to go to church this morning with the girls and I am home with Quinn.  Its ok because yesterday I had lots of out of the house time.  I went to Target (big surprise, I know), Old Navy and the grocery store and I also visited two Best Buys yesterday to act on some crazy idea that Chris had Friday night.  I can't tell you about it because its a surprise.  And no, its not an ipad.  Although it was so super tempting.  Super, super tempting.  But then I thought about how excited Chris would be for about 30 seconds and how that excitement would then turn into rage and disappointment.  He would be oh so angry with me.  And he would have on his angry eyes and the line face and it wouldn't be good.  He would kick my hiney and make me take it back.  But it would be too late to take it back because I would've already installed 12,000 apps on it.  Can you install apps on an ipad?  I really have no idea about apps.  I don't own any apps.  I don't even know that I've ever seen any apps.  I'm sure that I would want 12,000 of them though. 

Anywho, so that was pretty much my day yesterday.  That and these two exciting things happened...
1.  I went to a Target that I never go to anymore and they had the boots that I bought last week on sale, that are not on sale at my usual Target.  And they had my size, so I carried them up to the return counter with my receipt, and the girl graciously returned them and rebought them for me at the sale price.  Score!
2.  Chris fed the kids dinner and then I picked up hibachi and sushi for us on my way home from the 2nd Best Buy.  Then we ate dinner at the table...alone...and had grown up conversation.  I think we need to do this much, much more often.  Even if its just pick up from McDonalds...or Waffle House (which would make me very happy).

I also went to the outlets in Commerce Friday night and discovered these two things about myself...
1.  I really enjoy shopping with my husband and therefore, shopping by myself is not nearly as much fun as it used to be.
2.  I am really cheap.  Like I was looking for the sale on the sale items.  And so I hit the jack pot at Banana Republic because their clearance was 50% off.  Like things were marked down and then 50% off of that price.  And my cheap self really loved that.  And I had a giftcard on top of that.  Rock on. 

And so, there you have it.  Christmas Pageant is tonight.  Chris and I will be drawing straws to see who gets to go and who has to stay home with Quinn.  I'll report back later.  Over and out.

You crack me up. Yes, you would love apps and one day you will have many. Glad to hear Quinn is showing signs of improvement. Sorry I will miss the Xmas pageant. Bet it will be a hoot.
