Catching Up

Our first day back home, I had no desire to start laundry, but I knew I would have to eventually. I went to breakfast with my mom and dad, while Drew was at the Chiropractor, and he wanted to go to the gym, and do some grocery shopping. We were trying to get back in the swing of things.
When I arrived at my parents, I got to see my dogs for awhile, but I felt like my mind was in Europe still. I just wanted to go back. We went to Hanlon’s for breakfast and talked more about our trip. I felt so uptight and snooty, since Europe. I am forever changed. I don’t mind it.
After breakfast my mom and I went shopping. She bought me a few every day  tops things at TJ Maxx, that I could wear to work. One of them was a long sleeve blouse that had the Eiffel tower all over it. I said, I don’t care that this is an  XL I will wear it with leggings. I don’t mind. I love it. It is a sign. I also bought a TJ Maxx tote bag, that had the Eiffel tower on it, with Spring colors.
After TJ Maxx, we went to Maurices’. I typically don’t find anything, but I was going to try. I found a cute little top and a red dress with a little bit of flowers on it. I thought I could wear it to the wedding at the end of this month. Drew’s cousin Kelly is getting married.
After we left Maurices’, I had to go to Sally’s to get a straightener. I burned mine out in Europe of course. I was looking for the Hot Tools and was trying to avoid Ulta. I didn’t want to spend Ulta prices. The guy working at Sally’s told me about the brand GVP. He said, it is comparable to the Chi. I am not a huge fan of the Chi, but I love GVP. I took his word for it. I put the box that contained the hot pink shiny straightener on the counter. He also said, I could get a free GVP blow dryer, or GVP curling iron with today’s purchase. I said, “really? I saw that sign, but I wasn’t sure if I read it right.” He said, “Yup you did.” I grabbed a blow dryer. I have one that works now, but it is from K-Mart, and if it fries, then I will have this one. I also picked up some nail magic. I was getting such a good deal today. I used to be all about nail magic, but I got away from it. It made my nails go so hard so quickly.
After Sally’s, I kissed my mom goodbye and thanked her for the day. I had so much to do at home. When I got home, I told Drew about my deals of the day. He said, he was glad to hear it. He thought my straighter was going to cost $60 dollars. He was happy that I got a deal too. He liked my clothes that my mom got me today too. I did some laundry, and he got ready to grill out. I cleaned the house a little bit, but I figured a little at a time.
In between laundry, I was able to catch up on the Handmaid’s Tale. I missed two episodes while we were away. I was not looking forward to going back to work, but I was excited for our little cookout and what was left of the weekend.
