Off to work I go…

I guess I will go back to work tomorrow. I have enjoyed my time at home, but it will be nice to return to our normal schedule. I would much rather have nice weather days off later this spring rather than losing all my days when I am iced in the house. As of now, I still have a 3 day weekend later this month. We have discussed working on the bathroom during that weekend.
I have really enjoyed my weekend. Yesterday, D, Mae, and I took a road trip to Springfield to do some shopping. We went to some flea markets and played “flea market scavenger hunt.” We came up with items to find as we walked around the flea market. The first person to find the item got a point. The items were things like picture of a bird, undressed baby doll, lunch box with 80s characters on it, record player, and so on. I am proud to say I won the game. We spent the whole afternoon and did not buy a single thing at the flea markets. One of our main goals was to find a new coffee table, sadly we came home with no coffee table. We found one we liked, but it was going to be about 2 weeks until the table was available for pick up. D refuses to wait for items. If we can not leave with the item, we do not buy it. I have discovered that this is hard when buying furniture. I understand where D is coming from though. Our first purchase for our new house was a dining table and chairs. We found them, paid for them, and waited, and waited, and waited. The 2 week waited ended up being a 2 month wait. When we got our table, it was broken and just a mess. The salesman would not return our phone calls. It was just unpleasant. We did keep our table and fix it the best we could, but “Hanks Fine Furniture” will no longer get our business. Since then, D does not want to buy and wait. Anyway, I said all that to say, we did not get a coffee table. We are going to look at some local stores this week and see if we can find anything. Our old coffee table had a tragic ending and our living room looks lonely without its coffee table friend. Coffee table or not, we had a nice time yesterday.
Today we have taken it easy. I have been having some pains as my belly is stretching even more. I feel okay if I can just sit down for awhile and keep hydrated. So, that is what I am trying to do. D is getting ready for the game. I would sure like to see the Cardinals win, but I am afraid the Steelers will be the champions. I am more looking forward to the commercials and a new Office following the game. I so enjoy that show.

*Change of plans–They just called and cancelled school for tomorrow. Another day to make up.
