Well, it's still almost done...

Being in a small, tiny, little bitty town is nice and all, but when you go shopping, you have to "go to town". That means for us, get gas and various snacks cause we have to drive for almost an hour to get to the "BIG CITY" and pick-up everything in one day, and if you don't get what you need at that time, or get the wrong thing then all you can do is say *&%$@#@*&^%$##^&!!"

That's how I felt when we did ALL our shopping yesterday. First went to our nearest town with a Family Dollar store (where I've bought the little curtains for Sonya's bathroom) and bought 2 of the long sheer panels in the lime green color to put around her bath as well as found another of the green rugs for her floor in front of her vanity. Then, we went to the "BIG CITY" to do the rest of the shopping.

We went to Hobby Lobby for some other little decorative things, then to the mall for some serious spring clothes shopping. Stopped for lunch, then on to Wal-Mart to pick up the rest of the shopping, like some quarts of paint to do something cute on my daughter's bedroom walls (don't quite know yet, but it's either going to have something like polka dots, flowers, or butterflies on them), a new curtain rod, cat food, and all the other misc. things that Wal-mart has that makes me spend too much money every time I go.

So, we get home and I start pulling everything out for my daughter's bathroom and find out that the 2 sheers I bought, now mind you these were one behind the other on the rack, are 2 different lengths, AAAAAHHHHH! Now I've got to spend all that gas money and all that time to go back to the Dollar store and exchange out one fr##$%#@ little $5 sheer curtain!

Well, good thing my ADD Dr. appointment is on Tuesday and I'll be passing through the town with the Dollar store on my way to the BIG CITY for my appointment, so I guess it will wait til then. Oh, I hate having to wait, but in a teeny tiny little bitty town, you learn to have a little patience, yeah, yeah, a little patience, yeah, yeah, (Sorry ADD kicked in and started thinking of that song by, I think, Guns-n-Roses).

Time to go, got to go take a nice long hot bubble bath in my daughter's really, almost so close I can taste it, finished bathroom. Til next time!

Hi, Nikki!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, I love hearing from someone new! First of all, I must tell you, you did a great job on your daughter's bathroom! It was kind of dark before, but the light green really brightens things up. I love the curtains and the fancy curtain rod, too! Very cute! I guess we're pretty spoiled as far as running to the store to pick something up or exchange things, we're five minutes away from all sorts of stores plus a huge mall. That would require some planning if you could only go once a week, I forget something just about every trip!

That's great that you are finding treatment for your ADD, best of luck with that! Were you diagnosed as a child or just recently? I bet there are just countless adults walking around with ADD that don't even realize they have it.

Well, take care and hope you stop by again, I'll come by and check on you, too!

Hiyas Nik:)) just popped in to say hi, and tell you I loe the work you did on Sonya's bathroom. Although we don't live as far from Wally World as you do, its still frustrating to get home and find the wrong thing, or not the thing that you bought.
Hope to talk to you soon! Or I will just down and write a loong letter

Love ya,
your BFF
