Another Week of Vacation Blown

So, here I am off from work and it is Friday. I have yet to really do anything enjoyable with my days. I have been doing errands and periodically vegging out trying to recover from working that early Sunday morning and from the errands.

I did see the latest Mummy movie (Chinese "mummy") using a Movie Cash voucher so I paid about half price out of pocket. This one had it's moments but not as enjoyable as the previous two. But a nice working in of the clay warriors.

I finally had to go shopping for jeans since my current set is wearing away. So I decided to visit a craft store relatively nearby the mall and the "new" Trader Joes (food/green cleaning, etc.) store that had opened one stop beforehand on the bus. There is one near where I work that is always packed unless you are lucky and time it just right. I could check this one out and then use the walkway next to the highway to get to the Craft store. Well I made it to the Trader Joes, the first time I could move around without constantly running into someone or their cart. No lines at the cashiers and I couldn't buy anything since I needed the room for anything I picked up at the craft store. Plus I didn't want anything to spoil.
Another craft store chain had opened a store next door so I checked it out. Nothing I had to have. Picked up some school supplies on sale at the Staples next to that to send to the Indian Reservation. Then onto the walkway, the one in a more deserted area and smelled from what those who hung out there left behind. I did buy supplies at the craft store, got an iced coffee at Starbucks before waiting for the bus to take me back to the mall. I still had to get those jeans!

I did finally get several pairs of jeans that actually fit comfortably at a reasonable price. I even managed to squash them into the carry bags I had brought that were already fairly full and caught the bus home. But my legs, feet and back were worse for the wear.

That of course meant vegging out trying to recover the next day. Hopefully I will be able to do the other errands that must be done and perhaps take a quick trip to one of the zoos.

First is dropping off the sample to the vets office. Wish me luck!
