Yay! Last night we finally picked up Ken's car, now with a new convertible top (or at least half a new one. That means I have my car back and can actually go somewhere. Is it not funny that all of a sudden when you have no means of driving, you feel like you just have to go somewhere?!
The neighbor had a hand, mouth and foot disease scare (höstblåsor in Swedish), so they are not allowed to play with anyone until they know if they got it or not, even though I told them Sarah already had it and is unlikely to catch it again. So she is a bit grumpy...
My plan for today is getting Sarah a haircut, going to get some new jeans (I have gained 25 lbs in two years thanks to a successful surgery (my doctors are very happy, me not so much). This means my size 6 jeans no longer fit, and my favorite jeans brand are having a sale (Old Navy, always fit me perfectly). So good time to stock up, only $19.99 a pair!!!
Then it will most likely be a stop at Target, they are having a great sale on cute little storage ottomans, perfect for Sarah's room when we get the bed, she can use them to sit on and store toys inside!
Speaking on the new bed, I have been promised we will have it before the end of the month, this is their busiest time of the year with all the college kids ordering loft beds. I am ready, got the stain and all the stuff needed to put it together.
All I will have to get is fabric to make the drapes around the bottom. Sarah has ordered red, and the once they had at IKEA was not in my taste, so I will try Hancock Fabrics, I got a 40 % coupon that is valid this upcoming weekend on any one item, so that would be perfect! Sarah wanted a red bed, but will get red drapes instead, so we are both happy.
So after I get Sarah in the shower to wash her hair for the haircut, we can take off.
Tomorrow our friend J who is an electrician is coming by at 8 AM to install outdoor lights, looking forward to see how that comes out, especially with the new motion detection lights that we are going to install.
Have a great day!
