Boyfriend and I rushed around yesterday to do the laundry (at the local ghetto-mat) and clean the house before we had company.
We entertained them briefly before snuggling in for a movie and some dinner, and then after Splat went to bed, we watched a little hockey and played some computer games.
We had decided that we would run out today and do some shopping (I wanted to spend a giftcard I got for Christmas and Boyfriend needs knew shoes) while Shake'n'Bake is with her dad and we only have to worry about one child.
Hoo Boy. What a trip.
First we went to Walmart to pick up a prescription that I had put in for some Finger Fungus cream.
Boyfriend volunteered to wait in the car with Splat so we wouldn't have to unload and carry her in, and I ran in to the pharmacy for a simple pick up.
The pharmacy wasn't open yet.
Okayyyyyyy. Next stop - to pick up new shoes for Boyfriend.
Not open yet.
We'll head north! There's another shoe store up there, and giftcard store is close to that as well.
We parked in the mall parking lot to go to the giftcard store and I realized that I had forgotten to bring the umbrella stroller for Splat again.
Luckily enough, this mall also had a grocery store in it. I made a quick dash to the carts and brought one back to the car for Boyfriend to put Splat in. We decided to go through the mall entrance instead of the grocery store entrance.
We got about halfway there.
As we were crossing the last bit of parking lot, the "invisible cart border patrol" kicked in and the wheels locked.
"Look! There are red-not-grocery-carts over there!" I exclaimed, pointing out three lone carts sitting near the mall entrance.
They belonged to the mall Zellers, so I figured they would be okay to push around the mall.
As we got closer I realized that one had no handle.
Boyfriend commented that it was completely appropriate given that we live in the Ghetto, and we had a nice chuckle.
