Souris light house in Souris, Prince Edward Island
...spent two hours visiting my father in the hospital. He was doing better today, which was wonderful to see, but he still has a long way to go.
...stopped at the mall on the way home to grab a smoothie and make a few calls before switching buses and decided to stop in at my favorite store, RW&Co. I have been shopping there since they first opened in 1999 (my mom brought me there saying there was a new store that had opened and she thought I might like their clothes and she was right) and they have always had excellent quality clothing that is affordable and stylish. I had been a bit disappointed with their stuff they had in their last few collections and found myself wondering if I was outgrowing them, but when I walked into the store today, it was just like it used to be and I found piece after piece of clothing that I loved. I was on the phone with my Grandma G. while wandering around the store so I didn't buy anything on my first walk through, but I went back after hanging up with her and ended up with a wonderful salesgirl who was almost like a personal shopper. She suggested outfit combinations, got all the right sizes for me just by looking at me and was not too intrusive while I was in the fitting room. I ended up buying a skirt, a pair of pants, a top, a cardigan and a camisole for under 240$ and leaving with a little smile on my face, which was great after the week I had.
...got stung by a wasp on the inside of my left ankle while waiting for the bus at the mall. If you have never been stung by a wasp, I suggest you try your hardest not to, it hurts like heck!
...finally washed my dishes. I have been home so little since Tuesday and have been so tired when I have been home that I had not washed them since then. Luckily, there was only one very well rinsed pan and plate, some closed and empty Ziploc containers from my dinners at work, some glasses and lots of cutlery in there, so nothing too major. I got it all washed in about 15 minutes.
...was hoping I would be able to go for a jog tonight, even if it was only half the distance I usually run, but I am still just way, way too tired and even if I wasn't, I got stung by that wasp right where my running shoes fit onto my ankle. The sting is still sore, so running would not have been possible. Hopefully I will be able to make it out tomorrow, because I haven't jogged in a week :o(
...am waiting for my Sweetheart to call me back. He's leaving for Haiti tomorrow. If he doesn't call back soon, I'm going to fall asleep waiting for him though. Goodnight...
