It's Thursday afternoon.
Hadassah is already buckled in the van while I make a mad dash into the house because I forgot her towel. Can't go to swimming lessons without a towel, right?
Wait a minute, do I even have her bathing suit? Oh yeah, I remember it tailing behind Hadassah as she dragged it along the porch floor to the van. Ok. Get your keys out and...uh oh...keys are still on the hook inside. Back I go again...this is getting ridiculous. Oh look! The letter I needed to mail is still sitting here on the hutch. Good thing I had to come back in. Now...stop lollygagging Jen and get going! You've got three errands to do before we even get to swimming lessons. And for crying out loud, stop talking to yourself!!!
It was one of those "let's see how much I can get done in a crazy short amount of time" kind of afternoons and I surprisingly got everything done on time. In fact - way early. Good thing Hadassah is always up for a trip to Bibles for Missions. Nothing like a good stroll down the furniture aisle, followed by a tour up and down the kitchenware aisle where you just.never.know.
Oh, how lovely. Don't need one, though. Check that out, could I do something with that? No, Jen, you have enough projects on the go. Put it down. Hey! What a great looking tin! Nice and big, just the right color for my kitchen. I don't really do tins, though. Too bad it's not a set. Love the pattern on the lid, wonder if it comes off easily? Yup. Lookee here...another tin inside! Score! And...oh it's getting better. There's another. And another! It IS a set. Tons of character, fun fonts, peeeerfect colors.
No. Put 'em down Jen. Where would you put them? Your counter is full and it'd be a waste to put them in the cupboard. (starting to walk away) (stops) But you never did loooove those bright aqua containers you have out now. Those could easily be put in the cupboard. (walks backwards). Wonder how much they are...THREE DOLLARS!!!!???!
And I am in looove.
How about one last look. Shall we? . . .
Bibles for Missions? I'll see you again soon.
