I know--I'm late posting this morning. That's because I blew this pop stand early this morning, leaving Cubby at the mercy of his father. And what did I do on my incredibly exciting Cubby-less adventure? WELL. Let me tell you! Because it really illustrates the glamor that is my life.
First I stopped at the MiL's sister's house to pick green beans. She left a message last week saying they were going on vacation and that we could pick their green beans while they were gone. That's the kind of message I like to find on our answering machine. Our green beans this year are sad and disappointing and nowhere near enough to provide the many beans I prefer to have in the freezer during the winter. So I stopped there to pick a HUGE BAG of beans, because GOOD LORD do they go crazy with the green beans. Thankfully.
Are you feeling the excitement? But wait! It gets better.
I continued on my way into the Small City, stopping next at the grocery store, where I wandered the vast aisles, buying such titillating items as gargantuan jugs of vinegar for pickling things and more canning jar lids. Plus a chocolate bar with toffee that I immediately ate when I got back in my car.
The excitement continues apace! I KNOW. It's getting all kinds of crazy now.
Next stop: the liquor store. WHEEE, MORE GIN!
And THEN I got my eyebrows waxed, which, no joke, was probably the most exciting part of the whole trip because YIKES was I overdue for that.
Last I stopped at the gas station where I spent Cubby's college fund filling my gas tank and the gas can for the lawn tractor.
And then I came home and found Cubby asleep again, which gave me time to put everything away and share the story of my fascinating morning escapades with you.
