What I forgot was that today would be mostly consumed by a 60 some odd mile drive into my dealer to have my car serviced. I've been waiting for winter to go away so I wouldn't have to worry about slick roads - all wheel drive or not, I'm a wuss when it comes to driving winter roads unless absolutely necessary. I also forgot that Saturday will be similarly consumed by a near 2 hour drive into Spokane to check out a contemporary art quilt show.
So I may not get much on my list done, but the out and abouts will no doubt energize me. As I headed out of town today, I realized this was my first foray beyond the city limits since my New Year's trip. I left early so I could swing by Michael's 45 miles down the road and take advantage of a 40% off coupon.
I was looking for base extender, but alas, they didn't have it. I could always pick up a jar of paint, but I froze a bit trying to remember what I already had and what would be a good addition. Then I wandered down the rubber stamp aisle. Oh, I am such a sucker for rubber stamps, even though I've used those I've already collected very little. The individual ones were 40% off and I immediately spotted two that I liked. Then I noticed that they had quite a collection of alphabet stamps, something I've wanted to get for some time. Since they were not included in the sale on stamps, I put back the jar of paint and chose an alphabet stamp to use with the coupon, and got the two others as well. Mmm, and here I thought I'd spend under $5!
