Oh my goodness. If I don’t have to go to a shopping mall again until after Christmas, I could be quite content.
I had to take the girls out today, after school, in search of the elusive snowpants sized to fit big girls. And other unmentionables. And maybe a new parka, since youngest took out the zipper in hers this morning.
Well, it took about an hour but I found two pairs of snowpants in the right size (figured I might as well get eldest a new pair as the last pair I got are not exactly roomy enough for heavy pants underneath or so she told me today — this way we’ll have one spare pair for those days they’re in and out to the snowy yard) and almost all of the required unmentionables. But there was not a decent parka to be found and the thought of dragging the girls through the rest of the mall stores in search of such? Unsupportable. We called it a day, dined early at the McDonalds’ and were home, exhausted, at five.
I’m doing the rest of my holiday shopping online, at the University bookstore or at the grocery store.
