14 August 2008


The day took a brighter turn. Emily decided to sleep in and clothes shop some other time. I went to the pool, read the newspaper and swam 20 laps. There's really nothing like being immersed in water. Nice cool water. I came home, showered, woke up Emily (2:00) and made pizza. We ate, then went to Kohl's for shoes. I brought out all the Nike runners in her size and the ones she picked were on sale for $40 and I had a 15% off coupon! No drama and really cute shoes. Then we drove to a park and she ran while I hung out. When we got home we worked together cleaning the kitchen floor. She and her friend had some kind of soap fight yesterday. Still a kid, huh? Her dad will be here soon to take her for her physical for field hockey, and I'm leaving to shop for a tea kettle before my meeting. I just knew my mood would change.

And Karen, Rip's is on 301, right near my family's home. Have you ever been there?

It does sound like the day turned better! 20 laps huh? Good on you! I love to swim, it feels so good, especially for my back.

Soap fight? That sounds like fun!

Since your day got better I am hoping the rest of my night does too.

Score on the sale and things going well with Em.

Glad the day turned around for you. Gotta love Kohl's!

Can't wait to hear about your meeting.

I'm glad things perked up and the shopping with Emily went well. I always wonder what the cause is when I wake up in a funk. One of my friends always blamed it on biorhythms.

Have a good evening.

Glad you had a better day than expected. Yes, I have eaten at Rips but haven't for years. It looks like it still does a great business.
