Okay, the camping shopping is DONE! Largely thanks to sambear, who met us out in the big wide world after work and made everything easier. By the time we’d gone to Sports Authority, Goody’s, Sam’s Club, and Walmart I was seriously doubting my ability to drive home. Sam made me eat one of those little overpriced sleeves of cashews on the impulse purchase shelves and I felt well enough to drive home safely—maybe not eating lunch wasn’t such a good idea.
He then went to borrow the mess kit from David & Alisa (getting Rhianna cuddle time that I didn’t have, grumble grumble grumble) and took Katie to get the final item, sports sandals. Sam just needs to do all the shoe shopping alone—they found a pretty nice pair of Timberlake sandals with straps to adjust the width to Katie’s narrow feet marked down to $10. When they got to the register, they found out that they were on sale for 50% off beyond that. We had seen similar sandals at Sports Authority that were $50. He got a similar deal last year when we were doing the camp outfitting.
I’ll be going to bed soon, I think. I’m freezing. That happens when I get too tired. It’s almost like my body starts going shocky. It doesn’t seem to have a thing to do with the actual temperature of the room or anything—it’s hot outside, even with the rain, but I had to turn on the heat in the car. I’m going to go put on a sweatsuit and big socks and burrow under the quilts for a while. But I have to eat dinner first or I’ll be in trouble with Sam.
Happy news—David & Alisa will be at the game tomorrow night for the first time since well before Rhianna’s birth (she’ll be 5 weeks old on Saturday). So I should get some cuddle time then.
