Monday was my mother's birthday, so I made her a card:
My parents and I went to Red Lobster for my mother's birthday lunch:
We stopped by Target to return something I didn't want for my birthday. I had asked for a replacement TV stand. Apparently they don't carry the same crappy one I have (the cheap particle board bookshelf that I'm ok with), I just wanted simple and cheap, my mom wanted more nice looking. I don't know why she cares, she'll never see it, plus it didn't have a back or solid shelves, I do store things on it. Anywho, the ones that were sort of like it were wicked expensive, I do not need to spend $80 on a bookshelf, I'll do that when I have my own house. We didn't find what I wanted, so I just got a gift card with the return money. My brother also gave me a gift card for Target, so I spent a little of that on stuff for a $1 swap I signed up for:
I also had to go to the Dollar Tree and pick up some necessities, mom said I should just get them at Target, because they'd be free for me. I'd rather spend my gift card on fun stuff, and hello, they're only $1.
I also picked up a couple sticker sheets for my swap:
When I got home I found some fun mail, a birthday card:
I had to work that night and then we went to see fireworks.
Tuesday: I didn't do much. I finished a few swaps to mail out, and didn't leave the house. After spending basically three days in a row with people, I needed a day to myself, and I work Wednesday through next Monday, so it would be a week until I got another one.
Wednesday: I opened, went to the post office to mail out a few Dollar Tree Swaps:
Thursday: I burned through some movies and basically went to work. I found this in my mailbox:
I also received a birthday card:
Friday: I was originally supposed to go shopping, then I was supposed to work, the other day, my boss said she didn't need me to work, so then I didn't have a plan. I wanted to go to garage sales, but there aren't any in my area. So, my friend and I went to Goodwill, HyVee and a local co-op store, Wheatsfields.
Here's what I picked up at Goodwill:
I picked up the stickers, file folders and index cards for art.
I originally wanted to go to find some more not work shirts, more graphic T-shirts, I found a few:
I didn't try them on at the store (I know), I did when I got home, the rock shirt and the green shirt were supposed to be male shirts, they are mediums, but they still fit a bit tight to be guy shirts. The rest are women's shirts, the ninja one and the Hard Rock Cafe ones are a little tight, but I think they'll be fine. The brown one fits pretty well and the pink one fits pretty well.
Here's what I picked up at HyVee:
I found this soundtrack while we were in a record store:
Here's what I got at the co-op:
When I got home, I found some things in my mail box, a card:
I was in a pretty grumpy mood Thursday night, I'm not entirely sure why. That's part of the reason I wanted to go shopping with a friend. Sadly the shopping didn't exactly boost my mood, hanging out with my friend, did, also the cards in the mail helped a bunch.
Saturday: I had to work at the library at 11, so that was basically my day. I stopped at the library booksale on the way home:
I found some interesting mail in my mailbox when I got home:
