Shop til you drop!

On Saturday I left my apartment at about 10:30 in the morning. I didn't get home until 4:15. That's a LONG day of errand running for me. (And then I left again at 4:45 when I went out to dinner with a friend.) But it was an awesome day.

I mailed out a bunch of cookie order forms to my little girls. I hadn't had them on hand when our Wednesday meeting rolled around. Cookie sales started Friday. Support your Scouts. :) (If you click on the link it will take you to the cookie website where you can do a zip code search for your local council.)

I picked up my present from the Peevery white elephant exchange. I was briefly worried that what I sent wasn't up to par and then I opened it... Hahaha. I am now the posessor of Dream Angels Heavenly scented lotion.

I then caught the bus up to Northgate. There I shopped! I had a bunch of things to return so I ended up doing things like getting the Juno Soundtrack for $2.00 because I had books that I took back to Barnes & Noble. And I got two new Nintendo DS games for $16 total because I had taken back 3 DVDs. Life is good. :)

I also picked up the right kind of wire to try potato batteries with my girls this week. I had bought one kind of wire last week but it was too thick and it was too difficult to twist without pliers. I got some from Radio Shack and it is thin so I have high hopes that we can make it work this week and it will be cool. Of course they'll be annoyed that they have to do it again but too bad for them. :)

Sounds like a productive day...I love days like that. I need to have more of those days in my life...haha.

That's a pretty good white elephant gift, unless it reeks.
