While The Husband and Thing2 waited at a walk-in clinic, Thing1 and I struck out to do some errands. I needed a last-minute birthday gift for a niece, so I decided to go to a teacher supply/toy store (think miniature Fat Brain Toys in person) called Learning Oasis.
Needless to say, Thing1 and I (we are kindred spirits) spent way too long in that store under the clever ruse of shopping for a one-year-old's birthday gift. Some women have a shoe addiction. Some women love bags.
After we finally checked out (I promise I only bought the birthday gift, two items for our co-op, and one $2 item for myself), I discovered that the care wouldn't start. If anyone cares, it sounded like the fuel pump had gone out.
I called The Husband to let him know, found out that my brother happened to be heading my way, then did what I had to do. I went back into the Learning Oasis to wait.
After spending another hour in that store, I only bought two more things. Again, if anyone cares, it was a set of Do-A-Dot paints (post coming soon) and a Melissa and Doug Jumbo Coloring Pad. However, my head was filled with products I would love to try.
