My big plans for the day — get the purple/yellow top sewn together; get the Memorial Day Challenge quilted and bound.
Vince’s big plans for the day — go to Pittsburg, KS, eat at the Chinese restaurant I don’t like; go to Big Lots while I wait in the car because I refuse to go in there; go to Dillon’s because it’s a real grocery store; go to Home Depot just to send me over the edge . . in case all the other stops didn’t do it! 🙂
I’m beginning to fear the retirement years!
At first I said no! I don’t want to go anywhere. I don’t like the Chinese restaurant. I don’t like going to Big Lots. I don’t need anything from the grocery store. We spent 2 hours in Home Depot in Joplin on Thursday! But then that little voice that always gets me in trouble said .. Be nice and go with him! He works so hard and you can play any day! That little voice needs to learn to say no too!
So, I stopped quilting and went to the Chinese restaurant, where the people sitting at the next booth had a DOG under their table. They pretended it was a service dog but neither of them seemed to need any help getting around. The dog stayed under the table while they both made numerous trips to the feeding trough. I guess the dog under the table was no worse that the guy sitting across from me last time we were there. I won’t go into details about his one tooth and the way he chewed with his mouth open!
At Big Lots, I sat in the car . . even though it was 120º outside (or so it seemed).
At Dillons, I did find a few things I could use. Gnocchi for one thing . . can’t get that here and I have that on the menu for this week.
I’ve figured out the way to get Vince to stop taking me places is to spend $$ every time we go somewhere. So, today while at Home Depot, I dragged him to look at new carpet for the living room and then went to the kitchen area to show him that maybe I’d rather have granite than formica on the new counter top. Seriously, I will not have granite but if every time he wants to go to Home Depot, he thinks it might cost him $$, he’ll stop taking me there.
The purple and yellow top was never touched. The Memorial Day Challenge top was quilted but the binding didn’t get done.
Tomorrow . . Tuesday . . Vince goes back to work. I will sew all day!
