Yesterday Garry took the oldest girls to Kings Dominion. It was a Friday, and it was supposed to (and did) rain, and so they had the park to themselves.
And Molly and I had the place to ourselves! We cleaned up and then hit the town! We started our afternoon at MiMi's Cafe. I had never been to a sit down restaurant by myself before, except for maybe a business conference many lives ago, but I was willing to give it a try. Am I ready to order? Why yes! Yes, I am! And I was not in and out, oh no! I got an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert. Molly enjoyed the french fries, carrots from my chicken pot pie and the berries from on top of my mousse. She had a great time.
Afterward we went to Target and I found a book that Emma loves called Biscuit. She got it from the library, and she has memorized it, but she was sad that she was going to have to take it back to the library. But I found a cheap, paperback version. Yeah!
Then we went to the mall and I visited my friend who works at a jewelry story. She cleaned my ring for me. How great was that? It's all shiny and pretty!
I also found a bracelet and some yummy lotion and shower gel. Happiness.
Finally, I went to Blockbuster to get a used version of the movie Bolt. Disney has been VERY slow in marking down that movie, and so I just gave up and bought it used. The girls were excited.
It was good to get out! And with just one kid!
