Teens & Our Friday Afternoon

First — shad­owkatt and mayre­mi—check out notin­school. It’s a new com­mu­ni­ty for home­schooled teens.

LJ-less C and N are in the liv­ing room with shad­owkatt. sam­bear is fin­ish­ing up some­thing per­tain­ing to what­ev­er RPG they’re playing.

Katie and I went to get her aller­gy shots today and learned that the aller­gist’s office clos­es at noon on Fri­days. Since we were forced to do *some­thing* else, I sur­prised her by going to the huge Good­will store on Hwy. 92. Then we went to Pla­to’s Clos­et, which is a con­sign­ment store that just car­ries “teen fash­ions.” That one is nice­ly locat­ed near Star­bucks, so I was able to relax and read while she shopped.

We head­ed over to Barnes & Noble, where I was thrilled to find the lat­est Liaden nov­el, Bal­ance of Trade. We went and got the key for the Cas­tle copied, and end­ed up with two small pots of laven­der and a hang­ing bas­ket of pur­ple wan­der­ing Jew that I believe to have been cross-pol­li­nat­ed with kudzu. It is lit­er­al­ly impos­si­ble to find the bot­tom of the pot.

I had intend­ed to bring Katie and Sam home, then go back out to check out win­dow treat­ments. I was too tired, though, par­tial­ly because I did­n’t take meds with me and there­fore missed a dose of painkillers. I may just go to bed ear­ly now.

Tomor­row we’re going to see curiousmay9 and then mique_mique (After WAY WAY TOO LONG!), so I’ll need my rest. 

I need to go get a new copy of the DMC col­or card. I can’t find either of mine (and I have two from dif­fer­ent years!) and there’s a new one out, any­way, includ­ing all the lat­est col­ors. I can actu­al­ly say that I NEED it, real­ly! Because that’s the eas­i­est way for me to find some­thing that exact­ly match­es things like curiousmay9’s couch when I’m pick­ing out paint and win­dow treat­ments and the like. Maybe I’ll get to run by Joann or Michael’s for that (I don’t think Nease’s car­ries them—but maybe I should check with her first, just in case).
