Last night my agenda for the day was kinda simple...
Switch shower lining in Pooka's bathroom
Get the car inspected and have the oil changed
Go eat at this buffet style soup and salad spot
Get a pedi and Pooka get her nails painted
Pick up some produce from the grocery store
Drop the food off
Relax in the pool
How about the service dept. over at the dealership is closed on Sundays? Thank goodness I called before I drove out there! So no oil change
How about Mai Wan Yu and 'em up the skreet are closed on Sundays? So no pedi
I could have gone to a more upscale place for my pedi but I don't feel like driving over there. Lei Po is literally up the street! Since the dealership is closed I decided not to go to the soup and salad spot that's near them. For food I decide that we were going to go to one of the food spots in the strip the grocery store is in. One place didn't take cards (I don't carry much cash if any at all), one place didn't open till 4 (it was 11), and neither I nor Pooka was feeling the carry out. So grocery shopping it was.
Never go grocery shopping with a full check in the bank and an empty stomach. I knew better to do it, but I did it anyways and spent too much money. I got my produce and just about everything else! LOL! After we finally made it out of the grocery store one of the most beautiful sights I only see annually filled my eyes...
little girls with their girl scout cookie booth set up for business. YES!!!!
As I'm pulling out the only cash I had, a five dollar bill, I asked for my standard order of 2 boxes of thin mints. Little Megan Joe with her happy brown eyes said "that will be 7 dollars please."
"But girl scout cookies are only $2.50 a box." The little girl looked old enough to know that $2.50 plus $2.50 equalled $5.00, but I was willing to help with her addition.
"They are $3.50 a box this year"
"For real?" I asked as my heart tore.
The adult with the girls told me about how they had to go up and yadda yadda yadda. I was still stuck on what the little girl said. After the news sunk in I asked for my single box, got my buck fifty back and walked away happy I had some cookies, but sad I only had one box.
Girl scouts...Imma need you to do better, despite local folks telling me they've been $3.50 for years now! LOL!
As far as my plans, I don't feel like the gym or the pool today. My motivation to leave my place again has completely left the building. I guess I'll be doing another workout at home. *sigh*
