After my DH got home from work last night, we went out to check out the new cell phones that Verizon Wireless carries. Ever since the LG Chocolate came out, I’ve wanted one, but then they had to make it in five colors! Oh NO! I have the worst time making color choices, whether it’s for clothing or cell phones or yarn, because I like them all. I knew I was interested in the white Chocolate, but then they came out with mint (love that green), and a strawberry (shocking pink — perfect for little me in a family of men). The only thing I didn’t like about the mint was the red light in the buttons. All of them have red lights. Why couldn’t they change the light to blue or green for the mint? I decided I wanted to get the one I originally liked: white Chocolate.
My DH was interested in a certain phone, but after he picked it up and played with it, he decided he didn’t really like it. So he looked at them all, and chose one with a rollcage; perfect for us actually, because the phone he’s using now got dropped in the Indian River bay (dockside) during the summer (didn’t start working again for 6 months), and I ran over mine with my 2500 Suburban (still worked perfectly). Since we were just investigating the phones, we didn’t get either, because if we ordered them online, we would get an extra discount. With the cell phone window shopping done, it was now time to get some dinner to hush up our poor, helpless, starving younguns in the backseat.
At the local mall, we dined on Villa Pizza in the food court, and when everyone was almost finished, my DH started looking over at McDonald’s. Then he got up and informed us that he’d be right back, and off he went toward McDonald’s with a sneaky grin on his face. My youngest said, “He’s getting me a toy!” and I agreed, “Yeah, he’s probably getting a happy meal.”
He returned with his hands full of soft-serve vanilla ice cream cones, one for each of us. To say that we were surprised would be an understatement. I think he’s reminiscing about our trip to Disney, because each day that we were there, we had an ice cream snack for our mid-afternoon break. 🙂
Next up was grocery shopping, but DH was getting tired and wanted to get just the necessities, so he was going to Walmart. If I’ve never mentioned this here, I’ll do it now… I can’t stand Walmart. There’s just something about that store that bothers me and just getting near the parking lot makes me irritable. So I started to raise a fuss, then thought better of it… instead I said something like, “You could always drop me off at Michael’s while you go to Walmart. I need a 40″ knitting needle anyway, so I can see if they have one…” DH looks totally confused, then asks, “Forty inches? What do you need a 40″ knitting needle for?!” (LOL, this is still making me laugh!) I said, “Because I found a website tutorial on how to knit two socks on one circular…” (LOL) He says, “OHHHH!!! I thought you meant a 40″-long stick!” and proceeds to open his arms that wide to demonstrate… LOL, the boys and I started cracking up! As I remember it as I type this, it’s still pretty funny. But I guess you had to be there…
This morning, the cell phones were ordered and within an hour, I got en email that said they were shipped already. So fast, I wonder if they’ll be here tomorrow? Can’t wait to play with mine…
Crafty update: The crocheted market bag will be done tonight and I’ll be able to get a picture of it up here tomorrow. And my one sock is still a work in progress. Before I even went into Michael’s last night, I knew they didn’t have 40″ circular knitting needles, so I ordered some from WEBS today after I ordered the cell phones. Some nice Inox circulars will soon be mine in both a size 2 and a size 3.
