I spent several hours at Barnes & Noble yesterday but shockingly only walked away with four books, one of which is for Ibis (some Steven Hawking thing he loves). I bought my first vampire book so I can finally see what my online friends are always talking about, plus the latest Alice Seybold book and Drowning Ruth. My mom and I also scoured her basement library, and combined with the stack of writing books she bought for me, I think I'll be set for the next six months.
Before the bookstore we stopped in a sporting goods store to look for a collapseable grill (another Ibis thing) but of course I got sidetracked. Aside from trying on sneakers and testing every eliptical machine, I managed to get in a complete arm workout with the 8 pound hand weights. Please tell me I'm not the only person who does that? I didn't buy anything but there are several things I'm mooning over.
Today I'm picking up my new glasses - no more scratches in both lenses - and meeting my best friend's sister-in-law for lunch. AND, I'm meeting my friend's mom to pick up my burned copies of the first four seasons of Alias! I have breakfast plans tomorrow with the minister who married us, but other than that I get to just sit on my butt. My plan is to finally catch up on my blog reading, so expect a slew of tardy comments. ;)
ETA: I just remembered I need to read a book my sister loaned me before heading to Chicago Friday morning, so the blog reading might have to wait a bit longer.
