Today began my first day of a week long vacation. Unfortunately this isn’t a load up the family and get away sort of vacation, but rather a stay at home and do odds and ends sort. There will however be some short travel back to Ohio for Michelle & Andrew’s wedding this weekend which I’m looking forward to.
Day one of the vacation was largely spent inside the dressing room at the JC Penny’s in UP Mall, Mishawaka. I was in need of an outfit for the wedding thus I made my way to the mall hoping to find just the perfect ensemble. I’m pleased to say that after 2.5 hours of shopping, I walked away with everything I was looking for, and I was even able to do it primarily utilizing the sale rack.
I will say that while my mission was a success, it was greatly hindered without Lindsay on hand. Fortunately via picture text, I was able to receive advices and assistance from her. Technology is such a wonderful thing (when it works).
After leaving the mall, I stopped off at Moe’s for a quick lunch and then headed home where I proceeded to grab a quick nap before the girls got home. I must say, for not going away on vacation, my first day was quite nice.
Around dinner time tonight, I began to notice the onset of a head cold; mainly in my throat and left ear. I hate having a cold in the summer.
