Yesterday was errand day. What I should say is that it was errand day for hubby! My errands consisted of Waiting...Waiting...and more Waiting!
I shouldn't complain too much because I've found that my lack of mobility does have some perks! ^_^ When I was mobile, Saturdays were filled with hubby and I going from one place to the other, getting the errands done that would allow our mid-week time to run smoother.
We spent a lot of time waiting in grocery store lines...because everybody and their mama would have the same idea as us and would storm the grocery stores with 'To-Get' lists as long as ours, and with grandma and her coupon booklet in tow. Not to mention the little ones, who daddy refused to watch at home and some flat 'ready-to-go' shoes on their feet! LOL
I remember standing in long lines in the grocery store and waiting in the car for hubby while he got a 'quick' hair cut along the way. A hair cut at the neighborhood barber shop that was full of men with nothing to do but sit around 'chewing the fat' (gabbing), waiting for the 'one good barber'! ^_^ Yesterday I did that waiting here at the house!
It came out very nicely! :-) ... As he gets older the wait for the hair cut is getting shorter and shorter though!! ^_^ Pretty soon he'll be able to do it for himself at home...without the results that 'Beaver' had to deal with!........You need hair for that!! ^_^ (Shhhh! Pretend you didn't hear that! LOL)
I was just wondering how long I was going to have to wait for him. We had big plans, and somehow when hubby does errands it always takes forever!!...I think he gets distracted easily. Well, I know he does! LOL He always comes home telling me about something he saw on sale in the store, or some new food he thinks he should buy 15 of, or how many gadgets the new phones have nowadays, when......he didn't have phones, or any new foods, on his shopping list! LOL
We had some online shopping to do, and I just wanted to get on with it...so I could do my crocheting and take a nap! ^_^ I wanted all of his run-around errands to be over, and for him to come home!...Hair cut done....check!....Pick up more multi-vitamins before the other bottle completely runs out....check, check!
Do a little grocery shopping....check, check, check!....Run around to 3 different stores to see if he can find the new cell phone at the same price it said it was suppose to be when he saw it online......Ch....Huh?! O_0 That kind of running around wasn't on the list! UGH!
Thankfully I had his pretty garden to look at. The plants are growing so nicely now!
Oh!...Too close?! ^_^ Sorry!
I was still waiting while he did some banking, put gas in the car for the week, and mailed some letters. He came home in between to take some photos of my scarf, so I could get it measured and ready to list in the shop today. He's much better at taking photos than me! But I hate that I always have to wait for him to take them!...Hmmmm! I sound a bit impatient today!
Then, because our old washing machine finally decided it had had enough of that 'rinsing' thing,...
...we had to shop around to get another one of those yesterday too! We looked at washing machines online first, and lo and behold, a SALE!!!
It's no charge for delivery and $400.00 off of the original price, but only for the weekend. We can't wait for this one! ....SOLD!!! :-) Now all we have to do is wait for them to deliver it...UGH! Why did I know there would be more waiting involved?!!
Whatever!!...More 'Wuglyee' crocheting time. :-)
There is one thing I won't have to wait for any longer!...The artist blogger from the blog SOiNTOiT, the blogger I talked about the other day that moved from California to Japan,......she's there!!! :-]
I can't wait to see what she finds while she's exploring her new country!!! :-] ... And I can't wait to have breakfast either! I'm off to do that right now!!! :-)
Have a good day Everybody!! :-)
I'm not very good at waiting.
I've had to do too much of it.
Too many hours in the car.
Too many minutes just to sit.
I want to do it now!
What's all this waiting all about?
Too much time spent in the middle
turns my surety to doubt.
I guess it could be worth the waiting,
all this check-list, errand, chore.
Then again, that all depends
on what it is I'm waiting for.
