We've had an interesting Saturday. Steven started the day by going to church to help move our church's belongings into our new building. We're very excited about having a new building in a more convenient location! I slept in since I've been feeling headachy and run-down lately.
This afternoon we headed out to Hobby Town so Steven could get something he needed for a Star Wars project. Driving through the shopping center's parking lot, we saw a sign that flu shots were available today at the pharmacy. We decided to get flu shots since Steven is high risk due to kidney disease, and I'm about to start tutoring in a middle school that is bound to be rife with sick germs. And when I say "we decided," I really mean that I decided, and Steven knew better than to argue. Two flu shots left us $56 poorer, but in my opinion, it's money well spent. And yeah, we should have done this back in October, but better late than never.
We then headed over to Christian Community Action to drop off an extra artificial Christmas tree that is just too big for our house. Turns out that they weren't accepting trees that day since Christmas is 11 months away. We decided to park and go into the CCA store, though, just for the fun of it.
I wound up finding a James Herriot book that I didn't already own. Steven had gone off on his own through the store and came back carrying this:
Lava lamps retail for $40, but this one in perfect condition was only $4. The man loves his lava lamps, and I confess to thinking they're pretty cool, too. The blue and black go very nicely in his Star Wars room. He was marveling over his find, and I told him it probably came from some guy who just got married, but his new wife wouldn't let him keep it. Because, you know, I've heard of wives being mean like that. In fact, I've learned that I'm a bit unusual because I let him have an entire room of our house just for his Star Wars stuff. Guess that makes me a nice wife, huh? I remind him of that fact. Often.
He's now trying to defeat the Rebels in some Star Wars computer game, and I'm about to go read one of my new, first edition (!!!) Chaim Potok books that my sweet hubby gave me for Christmas.
It's been a good Saturday.
