I was supposed to go into work today to meet with Brook. His wife had a doctor’s appointment so he told me not to come in till after lunch. I made lunch plans with Carol for Mexican and figured I would get a haircut and then be around to meet with Brook.
I left Anderson at 9 am and stopped in Commerce, GA at the outlet stores. I shopped at J. Crew with my birthday money and bought a few shirts at Gap. Then I went to lunch with Carol, got a haircut, and did some work. At 4 pm, Brook still hadn’t returned to the office so I carried on with my shopping. I stopped at REI (new jacket – I love jackets). Then I went downtown to IKEA to see if they had in my lawn chair – they didn’t (sadness). Next I went up to Perimeter and made a stop at Old Navy (little boy t-shirt reading “My Imaginary Friend Just Beat Up Your Imaginary Friend”), Container Store (rubber feet for my shelving unit – don’t want to scratch the new hardwood floors), Sports Authority (new work out clothes), another REI (they didn’t have the flip flops I wanted either), and J. Crew (ordered a new bathing suit). Just as I was finishing up, Jamie and her boyfriend met me for dinner at American Cafe (they have my favorite chips and dip – a close second to El Chico).
The only bad part of the day was having to drive back to Anderson. Wade was out of town and Madison was not happy to have been left outside all day.
