Our two carts loaded up

Our two carts loaded up

We had this plan to get up, get brunch at IHOP, and then go see one of our movie selections from the night before. Instead, we woke up at 11:30am this morning, and wouldn’t make it to any movie. Also, my wife was still feeling ill. I’m not complaining, as we never have the opportunity to sleep in anymore. Nor should we be pushing ourselves to exhaustion or further illness. We modified our plans, decided on a late lunch/brunch at a local diner, then hit Target for toothpaste. Toothpaste, my friends!

Before I begin to recap the wealth of items we purchased today, let me explain a few things:

  1. We had a nice lunch. I had a pastrami sandwich, and I only ate a portion of my fries.
  2. We’ve been searching/discussing additional seating for guests in our living room.
  3. We’ve been searching/discussing how to best display/organize our DVDs.
  4. Yes, we remembered the toothpaste.

Have I mentioned how much I like Target? They have such nice stuff. Anyway, after picking up toothpaste and milk, we went to the furniture section. Oh, a nice bench that has built-in storage, perfect for movies! Oh, a nice bookshelf to hold our movies and pictures! Oh, pajamas for Josh! Oh, a larger plush blanket for snuggling on the couch! The list continues. We loaded up the car, and rushed home so I could put the shelf together before I had to pick up the kids.

I put it together in record time — under 2 hours, as I’m an expert. So far, they both look great, match our furniture, and we fit all the DVDs and some picture frames. Next on the list? More wall shelves and new living room tables.
