walmart, Walmart, WALMART!!!!

So this getaway was supposed to be about painting and relaxing and just grooving without the kids and hubby. Now we did do some of all of that but each day a certain amount of time has been spent in, you guessed it, walmart. Now that time spent probably wouldn't have seemed like much if yesterday's visit hadn't last a few hours! Yes, that is right, we were in there longer than I think I have ever been in walmart total. We would fabric that would work perfect in my house as curtains but they did not have enough so they called around to other stores and kept disappearing into the back. Now, granted they were just as frustrated because they kept getting hung up on in other stores but I have this feeling we should have just called it a day long before we got to the point where we thought a rescue crew was going to need to be called in to get us out of there.

I did leave with two good things, knitting needles and thread. Last night, my mom and her friend taught me how to knit simply and so I have been working on a scarf for the kids. Hopefully, I will be able to figure out how to make a second scarf so they don't have to fight over the one. And now I know what everyone will get for xmas! lol So watch out world I am adding to the collection of knitted scarves...


  1. LOL, after reading your last post and thinking it sounded like heaven, can I just say hours in Walmart sounds like hell.

  2. I taught myself to knit when I was pg with J (literally, it was from a book called "I Taught Myself to Knit!" LOL). Now it's an addiction, although I have alot of unfinished projects...I'm not exactly fast with the needles :)
