It's going to be a nicely busy weekend. Breakfast club with several friends with whom I taught, grand daughter's 11th birthday party, and on Sunday we finally get to see youngest child in her Virginia horse country new digs. Equipped with a care package for her from the natural food store, 4 pounds of carrots for the horses, and a box of treats for the dogs, we'll roll south.
Today, I shopped for a b-day gift for our older grand daughter at the Apple Store, a crazy interesting place to be; I could spend hours there. A troupe of about 25 Girl Scouts were there for a field day trying out the new IPADs and emitting that squealing energy only pre-pubescent girls emit, people were being tutored on Apple computers; the place just reeks with technical stuff -- I find it invigorating. The new Nano IPOD comes in 8 gigabytes or 16 (4000 or 8000 songs respectively) and is only an inch? Amazing! And now one doesn't even have to go to a register to check out -- the sales associate swiped my credit card and I 'signed' the little machine with my finger!
I walked around Sephora (I'm a skin product junkie) and Williams Sonoma (love that place) and realized that my favorite cookware can second in free-weight training or be used as lethal weapons. At any rate, in picking up stuff to look at, I somehow attached a price tag to my left boob. Here I am walking through the mall thinking I'm looking all that (or at least cleaned up) and my left boob is advertising itself for $18.00. A veritable bargain.
And now I'm off to the gym -- w/o the price tag.
