Today was one of those days where I had too many things to choose from. I didn't sleep in like I had hoped to on my first day off from the new store. It was rise and shine around 7:30, which is early on my day off. I hopped in the shower and then headed to the store to update a spreadsheet for a contest I am doing with our cashiers.
I had an oil change and tire rotation scheduled at 10:15 and they were done in less than an hour. I need to remember to schedule it on a Wednesday again in the future as Monday and Friday seem to take so much longer!
After my oil change, I talked to one of the manager trainees I am mentoring on the phone. He seems to be doing very well and likes his training. He is going to do a fantastic job when it's all done.
I arrived home around 11, had a hot dog for lunch, then decided to lounge around for a bit. I mulled over visiting the twins today, or taking a nap, or doing laundry, or doing some shopping. I decided on a short nap and then met up with my friend Kris. He and his daughter needed to go to the mall to get her a dress for a birthday party coming up. Kris isn't great at shopping, so obviously I said I would help. Upon arriving at the mall, I stopped in the middle of Penny's and announce loudly, "Welcome to our Mothership!" hehehehe.... it was so funny!
We found a super cute dress at Rue 21 and I bought Kelsie her shoes for a belated birthday gift. Two pairs of sandals for $21 was not bad.
After shopping, we decided to hit PF Chang since I had a gift card. Neither of them had ever been so I was more than happy to take them. It was a lot of fun and we ordered lots of food to share. We were overly stuffed and they had plenty to take home.
We said our goodbyes after dinner and then I headed home where I found some of my online shopping packages waiting for me. Yay! It's a partial order: (2) short sleeve cardigans, a corral print shirt and a dress that doesn't quite fit exactly the way I want, but once I lose a few more pounds, it should be perfect.
Speaking of weight loss, I have been doing pretty well this week since I am able to go home for lunch every day. I am heading to the YMCA after work tomorrow to walk a few miles. It's an 8-7 shift tomorrow and I have lots to get done!
Hope you all had a great day!
