Happy Tuesday! Yesterday was Monday and I was off so it makes Tuesday just like Monday. Boring! But at least I have a short day at work today. It will let me finish my errands after work before picking up Leo. And the errands seem to be never-ending lately!
I was going to order a new winter coat for Leo online from Childrens Place and get him a few new pairs of jeans also but the hubby wanted me to have him try on the coats to see if we could go a size up without it looking tacky to hope that it would fit for 2 years instead of 1. (Where he all of a sudden came up with the idea to try and save money is beyond me but whatever!) So instead of ordering Saturday night I took him to the store on Sunday. They didn't have any in the store to try on for boys so I found a similar girls jacket and tried the 4T on him. It was too big so I decided to just go ahead and order the 3T online. So when I ask to make sure they didn't have any hidden in the back and when they didn't they gave me a coupon for free shipping. Woo hoo! But I go home directly and try to order and just 1 day later they are sold out of the coat that I was going to buy. I was so annoyed. So now I'm going to have to get a coat that wasn't on sale AND I had a 20% coupon for. So lame.
I started reading the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. It. Is. Amazing. I read the 1st book in about a day and a half but then I got the 2nd and 3rd books on Sunday and I finished the 2nd book by midnight Sunday. I couldn't put it down. I even had a headache and I couldn't stop reading. It is such a good series. There are a few things that bother me though...1) These are young adult books? Really?! Some of the things in them are difficult for me to read because of the violence. I definitely wouldn't want to be talking to my 11 or 12 year old about some of the themes presented in them. One person gets killed by another by getting a rock crushed against their skull. And it's presented in detail. and 2) I just want the main character to choose who she wants to be with. I know she's only 17 but she is much above her age-level thinking wise so I think she needs to just choose. If she doesn't she is just leading the other on. But note to myself...it's only a book! I can't take these things too seriously but when I get swept up in the books it seems like I am there!
I can't believe it's already October 12! This month is flying by and I have a lot of stuff lined up in the 2nd half of the month and so I am getting really excited! We are taking a day trip to a local pumpkin patch next Tuesday and so I am on vacation next Tuesday. Then that Thursday I don't have to close and I get to go to a local community event and then that weekend is when we are going to Kansas City for the Chiefs game and then I am on vacation 3 days that final week in October. And of course all of the Halloween related activities that last weekend. Holy cow! I'm tired just thinking about everything going on. But I am so looking forward to it!
Well that's all I got for today. Check out Keely and other random thoughts!
