Out and About…

Saturday, March 28, 2009

Today was an absolute gorgeous day outside!  We took advantage of the weather and went out to do a few errands.  First we hit Rocky’s/Ace Hardware.  It’s only a few miles from our place.  We found quite a few things that we need for the house–treatment for a slow drain (our tub is draining slowly), gardening gloves, paper lawn bags, SEEDS (!!!)–tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, radishes, strawberries, beans, carrots, basil, cilantro, dill, and more!–, a plunger for the toilet, a new dishrack, grout for the tub, and I’m sure there’s more, but I can’t remember right now.

Then we decided to look in on Raymour and Flanigan for a living room set because we just found out that the set we had ordered from Bob’s was discontinued and supposedly the money that we had been putting toward it was only a price protection, not a layaway.  So we were pretty discouraged by that.  But after looking at that set again I was thinking maybe pale blue might not be the most practical color for the living room anyway.  So needless to say, we found something that we liked at R&F so we bought it (which actually means that we didn’t have to put anything down on it because we qualified for a credit where we don’t have to pay anything until it is delivered–which probably won’t be for another month or so just because we still have to paint the living room!).  We got a sofa, chair and ottoman–sage green, chenille fabric.  Super comfy!  So happy 🙂

I’m getting ready to go out for a friend’s birthday at work.  So time to hop in the shower.

p.s. I’m going to have to find out if there’s anything we can do about the children that play out in the street who are VERY LOUD–Kimm and I are both so frustrated because the kids are playing basketball, riding their bikes up and down, using a skateboard ramp, and generally yelling and screaming while playing.  Had we known this about this house, we may never have bought it.
