I am dragging today! Mr. Ciaran was up late and woke up in the middle of night crying, so he came to bed with us. I have been dragging all week so a night of a tossing, turning, kicking, and crying toddler didn't help very much. I feel like my eyeballs are going to drop right through the bottoms of my feet. They are HEAVY!!!!
I got to hang out at the mall yesterday. It was crazy! The college students are heading back to school, so they are stocking up on goodies for their apartments and dorm rooms. The little ones also start school in the next couple weeks, so lots of new school outfits and the grouchiness that goes with shopping for such things between parents and their children. I actually witnessed an argument about a frying pan between a mother and her son. She wanted him to have the frying pan and he he told her he didn't need anything like that for his apartment. He wasn't planning on cooking. I would have loved to hear the whole argument but there was a better one that had just erupted about a backpack happening in the next isle. I used to really want to go out and shop for clothes when I was little. My mom made our new school outfits when I was a kid. Of course I didn't appreciate it back then but after years of witnessing the hysterics of back to school parent/child snarliness about what top/pants/skirt/shoes he or she should get.....I am now ever so appreciative of my mom's efforts.
I wrote my first Etsy pen pal letter yesterday! I hope my new pen pal enjoys reading it. I love pen pals, I love writing letters but often I run out of anything interesting to say. I don't want to ramble, I want to ask meaningful questions and genuinely get to know my new friend. The trouble is that I am a babbling idiot by nature. I get started on something and I can't stop talking about it. Same darn thing with writing. I have a really hard time cutting myself off. I am trying but I have a ways to go. So for now I will stick to short and sweet. Not my entire life's story all smushed into one little envelope.
Oh well, off to mangle some more sweaters and dismantle some leather clothing, I have lots of work to do.
