That is what I wanted to do this morning when I awoke to pouring rain. But instead I went out in the pouring rain, trying to take kids to school and Maci Clare to the doctor for a high fever which I thought was an ear infection but turns out it's not. (Boy, that was a sentence, wasn't it? I'm not even sure about grammar and punctuation in that sentence so let's just pretend it's okay.)
This is what Maci Clare did all day yesterday.But there was a bright little ray of sunshine to our day. We went to Starbuck's where we had the perfect bowl of oatmeal (free, I might add) and a nice Venit White Chocolate Mocha Latte. AWESOME. BTW, the perfect bowl of oatmeal is just a package of instant oatmeal and they give you little packs of brown sugar, dried fruit, and nuts. I decided I can make it at home for a lot cheaper so I probably would never pay for it. But it was really good on this cold, rainy morning.
Next, we made a stop at Old Navy to buy a couple of Halloween t's. I got 3 for $15. Can't beat that. When we were leaving Old Navy it started raining really hard and I did not have an umbrella. So, needless to say, we were pretty wet.
Then I made a stop in Greenville that I don't normally make. I went to the Flower's Bakery Thrift Store. I was told to go in and ask for the $3 or $5 cart of bread. So I did. OMG! We now have bread in two freezers, a lot saved for feeding ducks (I'm still trying to find room for in another freezer, some on the counter top, and a box for Jim to take to work tomorrow to give away. It was a Walmart-sized shopping cart filled to the rim with different kinds of bread. I did save the bagels (5 bags), 2 packs of party rolls, 1 pack of Hoagies (for Philly Cheesesteaks), 2 loaves of Organic whole wheat, 2 loaves of White Sandwich bread, and 1 loaf of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread. I think next time I'll try the $3 cart. But, for now, the ducks will have a feast.
When I got back to town, I realized that I had not gone to Publix (in our neighboring town) to pick up Maci Clare's medicine. So I went in Walgreen's and had the prescription transferred and it was awesome. Because our Walgreen's is new, they had a coupon for a $25 gift card for a new or transferred prescription. So I paid OOP $6.83 for the medicine and received a $25 card. I will put that thing to good use tomorrow morning (only if it is not raining).
When I finally got home, I was so wet I had to change clothes. So much for curling up with a good book. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
