Shopping Spree...

I know I have been rather neglectful of Blogland this past week (Posting, Visiting and Replying to comments)...The only excuse I have is "busy" and exhausted...This entire last week has felt like everything from the the past month has caught up with me...

The surgery and recovery period, preparing for hubby to go out of state, followed by hubby going...adjusting to Sara's new daycare routine...and of course the return home of my beautiful daughter Michaela...Trying to get the fall garden prepped and the fencing and shelter for the goats...

My house is a mess, the gardens are neglected and we are no-where near where I hoped we would be on the goat stuff by now...If we are lucky some of the corn seedlings will survive the cats sleeping in the seedling trays by the time we get around to planting them into the garden...Our fall garden might just turn into a winter garden at this rate....Good think I have all those windows to use for cold frames if need be this year.

So despite all this, today I threw up my arms and said, who cares if the dishes are done...I need a little girlie bonding time with my "big girl" while the lil girl and/or life is not interrupting us...and Mic was in desperate need of some job interview clothes, since she lost her jeans and other various pieces to a "bathroom flooded and were unable to wash the wet laundry until it was beyond saving" accident. ...As young ppl living away from home for the first time are apt to have....

Mic in her new job hunting attire..

Soooooooooo today we headed into Cato Fashions and picked her out a cute, cute dress and these great jeans and shirt...Shoes and necklace were shopped for in mummy's closet and on sale for the price of a hug :)

We had a quiet lunch at Taco Bell and then walked around Walmart killing time until it was time to pick up Sara from Daycare....

It was a fun and easy day, but now I really need to get some cleaning done so I can cook dinner tonight

By all means, we need girlie bonding time. Glad you and the oldest had some time for lunch and shopping. Tell her best wishes with the job hunting.

Such a beautiful daughter you have there, Kelsie! With that sweet little smile, who wouldn't want to hire Mic. I love spending time with my girls. In the schem of things, who's going to remember about the messy house, or outside chores left undone. The memories of time spent together will last a lifetime.

Life gets busy. Dishes can always wait, they aren't going anywhere. Sounds like you had a wonderful day with your daughter.
