Over the weekend we took a day drive up to Beacon, New York. Though it has some of the same problems as our town of Stinksville, this town has many more cool shops and restaurants. I know I should have taken the camera but I was too excited about leaving our sad little town. We had a nice little fish and chips lunch, checked out some art and had a nice day.
House for sale update-well no one in their right mind will want to move into a new house at the end of December. Our realtor hasn't called me in 3 weeks. No one has looked at our house in 2. Melvin and I discussed kicking the sale sign down. I told him the week before Christmas we'll do it.
We also bought early presents for ourselves. Hey why shouldn't we buy something that we want? Right? We do not have money to just toss away.
After seeing this Helen Reddy type cook on TV, I just had to have a hand blender. I was mesmerized. I'm not usually like this. It was $20 and I can't wait to use it. I hope my family likes soup because this winter will be eating it all the time.
Melvin (for my new blogging friends, this is my husband's fake name. He has said he always liked this name. I usually just think of the band The Melvins, and picture the drummer, Buzzo) so Melvin wanted a new winter jacket. He found one he liked online, and I told him we could probably find it at the mall for him to try on. We found it and it's very nice. A puffy coat, but not over the top. It's fitted and that's something he needs.
We sat in the food court and this always poses a problem for us. I said we should feel lucky that we were able to go to the mall and find exactly what it was we wanted, had the money and leave with it.
The problem occurs when we start thinking about society and the downfall there of. The mall. The worst village scenario. And the people all looking so depressed and not very healthy. It's almost like it's an epidemic and you don't want to catch it. I always feel dirty both physically and mentally after a mall trip.
