Shop Til You Drop

I had such a wonderful day today. I walked for 8 miles, treated 3 friends at our country club for lunch, and then we all went on a shopping spree. While we were shopping for clothes, shoes, purses, and other girly things, our son and his bride were shopping for their family room in there new house. As their housewarming gift, we gave them carte blanche on furniture. Their den is done, and they received delivery today on a bar, coffee table, and end tables. They still need an area rug, lamps, something over the bar, and artwork. The decorator comes Saturday for their dining room and living room. I love what they’ve done so far! Our son stopped by a little while ago, but left after an hour’s visit. We are both ready to drop from shopping.

@DianneN - It sounds like so much fun, but exhausting, too! I've been sitting here on my laptop, ordering Christmas gifts for my Delaware grandkids! LOL

It’s a good way to get exhausted. Lol! I am done with my holiday shopping, so I can concentrate on myself for a change. I have been through the wringer. Enjoy your shopping for the grandkids! Here’s a bit of the bar area as of now.

@playertwo That is so sad. Perhaps you can spend it with a close friend.

I know how you feel. My car wouldn't start today so I had to walk 10 miles to rain dance practice only to discover that it had been canceled,......on account of rain.

My part was delicious. My son and his wife worry that they are making the right choice, but I approve everything through texts. They are giving me a headache.

Just so lovely living room. Looks so neat and wide. Wow, 8 miles is good distance of exercise. Me and my friends are also planning for a bike tomorrow.

Well thank you very much. It is a huge room - long and wide, which means more and more furniture. lol Enjoy your bike ride with your friends. I can't wait to get to Florida where my bike is. I love riding along the shoreline.

Thanks, Hanni. My parents were good to us, so we do what we can for the family, too. They are very happy shopping, but it's a labor intensive process and they both work. Thank goodness my son makes his own hours, so can be around for deliveries.

@DianneN That does help that he can make his own hours and be around when something needs to be delivered. I am glad you had good parents.
