We didn't have school last Friday and I was in the mood to shop. I called my mom that morning and asked her if she'd like to come along. I caught her just in time, because Melinda called right after with another option, babysitting.
We had such a fun day. We just took our time looking, dreaming and even did a lot of buying. I had made a list of all the things we have needed around the house that I never seem to remember to buy. Things like new phones, rugs, hoses for outside, table cloth, etc. Wow, it adds up fast! Besides all of that I had a few other things on my list too. I had seen a couple things from Ikea that I've been wanting to get to help me organize my little sewing area. I got a pretty nifty cart thing with sliding metal basket drawers plus this nifty little drawer organizer that I had been wanting to embellish. I have to say I think it turned out pretty darn cute. I bought one to do for Kylee too. I thought she could put it on the baby's dresser to put the "little things" in. Now I want to go back and get a few more just for fun and because there is some dang cute paper around!
Back to our day out, while we were in Ikea I got a text from Kylee inviting anyone and everyone to a cleaning party at their place the next day. George called and suggested that my mom and I just head up to Logan from there. At first I said, "No, I need to go home and get clothes, make-up etc." but then mom and I discussed it and decided, what the heck! We took off for Logan at about 8:00pm.
We got us a hotel room and went and picked up Kylee to go to Walmart for cleaning supplies, pj's/cleaning uniforms and toiletries. Luckily a lot of that was already on my list. The next morning we hit the Distribution Center early for new underwear.
Kylee and Conner had to clean the church so while they were there cleaning we hit the apartment. Kylee had discovered mold in a corner of the living room and in the closet the week before and has been really stressed out ever since, hence the reason for the special cleaning party. Their apartment is quite old and apparently not well ventilated. We wiped everything down with a bleach solution and hopefully got it under control at least for the month they have left to live there.
If nothing else, I think Kylee is feeling better about it and about bringing a baby home now. It was a day out that turned into two!
