Randomday (Monday Edition)
Latin for Duolingo course, and now putting it on Memrise. For a break, I try to solve at least 20 cryptograms every day. I feel compelled to watch or at least listen to the entire long versions of the Planned Parenthood expose videos, which tends to make me feel depressed and lethargic. As does the thought of back-to-school (though in a totally different way). Yep, the eccentric, somewhat antisocial, lazy cat metaphor is pretty much me all over.
Quarta had to be driven to camp this morning. Fortunately it was not in Montana this time, but it was in Oregon and I may or may not have gotten somewhat lost while Quarta was becoming quite carsick in the twisty roads above the Gorge. I ended up calling Steve when I figured we were not on the road I wanted to be on (the "shooting prohibited" signs were a huge clue) and he was able to help me figure out I wasn't as lost as I thought I was, and the camp was really just a mile away. This may be the adventure that convinces me a smart phone would be okay. As a side note, we discovered that Quarta has no time to think about being carsick when she is talking on the flip phone to Daddy.
On the way back I took Tertia shopping at Cascade Station and we found a clearance pair of Ecco shoes in her size (4.5) at DSW. So I signed up for a customer rewards card, since the Famous Footwear that used to be so convenient to us is now closed. Tertia was willing to look a little in one more store, Ross, but when we came out and I offered her the choice of what store to go to next, she said she wanted to go home. So I said, "I guess you aren't the shop till you drop kind, are you?" and a sweet lady who was going out at the same time overheard and said, "You are blessed! It's expensive!" I guess we are.
