And shopping I have been!

I have been consumed with finding a dress for my son's wedding, travel arrangements, etc. Bought the plane tickets, made hotel & car rental reservations and have been to every department store within driving distance trying on formal dresses. Two are hanging here right now and two more are ordered. A decision will be made next weekend with friends help and then I will be back on the shopping tour looking for a comfortable pair of dressy shoes to go with the winner and perhaps a wrap. Whew.

My Mom is starting to push about when in April am I coming to visit her so I need to buy those plane tickets, etc. as well. I'll make a decision today or tomorrow and get that in the works.

Love my family very much but they are a "pain" to go see LOL!

So today is about me and I am going to finally buy a Kindle. I'm finding it harder to get the books for book club as the library isn't buying as many books and my friends are all going with ebook versions. I'll join in with the low end Kindle reader and that will help with reading while traveling.

    1. Thanks Carla. I ended up ordering it and accessories from Amazon which gave me a better price and I didn't have to drive anywhere! After running all over the city looking for dresses for the wedding with shoe shopping yet to come, not driving is good.

  2. I hope you love your Kindle! Maybe your public library loans out e-books; ours does.

    1. Our library has some e-books to loan but not as many as some library systems. I will be taking advantage of it for sure. I'm president of our branch Friends of the Library group and love libraries!
