>This morning, I dutifully did my homework. Then I spent several hours looking up relevant online info for Alex’s trip. Then I double-checked my list of things to get for him, loaded up the Dreamsicle (yay! she’s back!!) with Goodwill donations, and I was off.
I’m back, almost four hours and six stops later. I spent the most time, predictably, at Walmart. I got little travel-sized things of whatever we hadn’t already bought for our last trips, luggage tags, large ziplocks, and that Tide stick I’ve been wanting to try out. Then, since Wally World didn’t have a passport holder or flip-flops of any worth, I trekked further south and hit Bed, Bath and Beyond (no dice), Sports Authority (flip-flops), Half-Price Books (also no dice), and Office Max (passport holder).
Now, I’m sitting here unloading scads of photos off of seven SD cards (7.25 GB worth). Because my Nikon and my backpack are going to Finland with my boy–dangit, if I can’t go, at least I can con him into taking photos for me.
No, I didn’t play hookie today. I used some of that ever-present comp time, and I scheduled it last week. It was supposed to be the big cleaning-house to prep for that whole getting it fixed and then put on the market thing… but Finland takes precedence.
