I spent a good deal of time rearranging and cleaning the grow room. Again, bad idea to use it to store stuff that had no where else to go. I should have just gotten rid of it all.
Picked Emily up from school and ran to the store. She talked me into $40 Converse Black Mono's. She's good like that. :) (Of course, it really isn't all that hard. My kids know I'll wear the same one pair of pants and ratty shoes for years just so they can have more!). What I find crazy is that they charge that much for a basic shoe, but her smile was worth twice that!
We walked down the road like we owned it or because there wasn't a lot of traffic this time of night.
What a wonderfully relaxing evening with lots of good conversation. Our mother-daughter bond grows stronger each day and it is sad that we can't be like this all the time. I miss so much of my daughter's life. But we can't dwell on what we don't have. We have to rejoice in what we do have and I am looking forward to a repeat tonight!
