Good morning early today. It’s about 4:30 in the morning. 😉 Don’t ask. I’m getting earlier and earlier on the days I wake up and can’t go back to sleep!
No big deal, I just make coffee and hop online.
Yesterday I put in five hours overtime. Not bad! My daughter started spring break so she was home and wanted me to take her to a friends for a bit. After I dropped her off I thought I would head out to Wallmart. I needed some misc. things and its quite a drive, but I thought what the heck.
I asked my kid if she wanted to go and she looked at me like I was crazy and said.. “Mom, that place is full of such weird people.” I said… “Don’t be like that, there is one in every city and every state in this country, everyone goes there.”
But you know what, when I got there I immediately started to see people that she may have been talking about. You know… throw back mullets, pants that show butt cracks, goofy makeup… you know, it’s kind of true.
Oh my gosh, I went online to get images and I cannot even post them here. Just go Google “wall mart people images”. I dare you! 😉
I don’t judge… we are all different and unique.
The main reason I went there is my patio cover ripped and looked really bad and I wanted to replace it quickly. I thought I would find the best deal there, but they didn’t have any for my love seat. I bought a grill cover instead and made it work. It was cheap and it states it won’t rip. How Wallmarty is this?
I know its not perfect, but the last one was way too big and it was horrible around the bottom and YES I saw a huge black widow!! Maybe now that its not so dark and wet under it they will find another home. I sprayed.
Does it look terrible\tacky?
I picked up a few things to fill this little guy whom you get to meet every year. My kid has had this Disney Thumper basket since she was a toddler.
This year I decided to fill it with a bunch of different, non candy stuff. Okay, one candy!
Golf tees, a glove, some hats, sunscreen oh and this:
And one of these little windbreakers.
Either the white one or the blue one:
I put the white one in the basket but she can take her pick. They were $9.00 a piece. Really lightweight and Danskin. A pretty good brand from back in the day.
Her Easter basket is done.
Today we are taking the day off from golf practice and I want to take her and her friend to Ventura. There are so many thrift shops and cool little stores there. I haven’t done anything fun with my kid in a while.
I’m thinking about taking an umbrella and beach towel and maybe grabbing a quick bite and heading to the beach for lunch. We shall see.
Pru gave me the idea! I really do need to find one or two things a month to do and enjoy and this is a start! Especially if I can include my kid. I think museums, art galleries, different little city centers are all on my horizon. (Prudent is taking her blog private, but here is a link just in case you want to check it out!)
I hope you enjoy your day today and will post if I find anything worthy!
