Friday Schmiday.

Status: Ready to have this durn thing off my foot, already!!!!

I'm walking much better. Granted, my ten-month old (who doesn't walk yet) could probably outrun me, but I'm getting around.

I'm happy because I sent a sixteenth-century "diary entry" to a friend as a teaser from the book I'm writing, and she thought it was authentic. Which means I did my research right. Yay! I won't give too much away, but my actual historical character has nothing written or surviving about her, so I'm making up about 85% of what she did. But I've been researching her for three years. So I feel like I've earned the right. In my opinon. :-)

There's a HUGE sale at Boston Store, so we're doing the kids' spring clothes shopping all in one swoop on Saturday. I love sales like this. Its like 30% off the 50% off the already reduced, PLUS our associate discount. One time, we got $2000 worth of clothes for $300. You just can't beat deals like that. We have a game plan in place. We're going to wake up super early, and just go and get it all done. I just hope my ankle holds out! I'm just lucky, I have a hubby who loves to shop for our kids. I mean, you just don't find many hubbies like that!

Have a good weekend, everyone, and stay warm!

That sounds like a marvelous Saturday activity!

Hope your ankle feels better soon! Better to fall down the stairs than up...That's always more embarassing!

Don't overdo it with your ankle! :) That shopping, though, sounds so fun. hehe

Hope your ankle held out for the shopping spree. So how were the deals?
