In the morning I ended up going out. Again, I know I shouldn't have, but whatever. There was a reason for my going out. I found something online that was being sold at a local store that I wanted. I wasn't sure if it was still there or not, but I wanted to stop in to the store and see. But when we pulled into the parking lot we found it empty. There was a sign on the door saying it was closed until January 2nd. I guess I was just going to have to wait. Also while out we also stopped into the Salvation Army (Goodwill was closed). I did not find anything, but my dad found a book (like he needs another book, right?).
I had almost made a shopping trip without spending any money on myself... but then... *sigh*. Apparently there's a new doughnut shop in town (maybe just new to us). It's in the same plaza as Hobby Lobby. My dad wanted to stop in and get some. I decided that since we were already in the area I might as well stop in and see if they had anything that was of interest to me.
Of course they did.
I visited the Christmas section first. This many days after Christmas it's looking pretty picked clean. I did not see a single tulle spools left in that section, I guess they're popular and don't last long on the clearance shelves. Good thing I didn't wait to get mine, if I did I would have had to wait until next year when they restocked them for Christmas 2013. So it's not shock that I didn't find anything there that I could use.
No, it wasn't the Christmas section that did me in, it was the fabric section, LIKE USUAL. Let me share with you what I bought there today:
Anyway, back at home we just spent more time visiting with my sister. I was lucky today and got a package in the mail. It was a doll item so I spent some time playing with it. I'll go more into detail later in another one of those posts for later that I owe you.
In the evening my sister and her husband wanted to watch the most recent Spiderman movie that they had rented during the day. Since I have no interest in that I excused myself and came upstairs to do stuff in my room, including playing more with what came in the mail for me.
But don't worry, I was downstairs well before the ball dropped. I was sitting in the living room with my family sipping on sparkling cider when that happened (alcohol was available, but I just don't care to drink). I ushered in the new year with my family, then ushered myself upstairs and into bed.
Happy New Year Everyone!
