ever since starting this teeny 10 on 10 project last month, i’ve been counting the days until the start of this month’s. i noticed that this time i started to look for things a little less and just kind of roll with whatever was showing up at the front door of my day. on this particular day last week, Chris welcomed the day with cupcakes for breakfast and the kids and i spent the better part of the morning at the mall. i find the mall has become one of those places stay at home moms go to to waste some time and pretend shop. side note: i could win a gold medal at pretend shopping. it goes something like this:
“i need this.
wait. i cant try this on while wearing a baby bjorn.
i’ll just return it if it doesnt fit.
ugh. i’m not waiting in this line.
lets go get a pretzel.”
this time our adventure at the mall didnt include much pretend shopping; Jack picked out some very large fuschia shoes for Ruby, we rode the Macy’s elevator about a dozen times and ran a few hundred races down the long mall corridor. i cant even vaguely remember having that much fun at a mall and not spending a dime.
and the blissful icing on the cupcake? getting to snuggle in for a 2 hour nap with my rolley polley Violet.
as the lyrical Ice Cube would say, “i got to say it was a good day.”
