Am I a glutton for punishment?

We've decided to go back to Coralville Mall again this weekend for one last mini trip. I know. Those shoppers were tyrants and I had to soak my heels for a week. But, I like that mall and I'm not going to let something like a bunch of tailgating shoppers bully me, by golly!

I'm really looking forward to it and so are the kids. Emily already has her shopping list ready- big bag of cotton candy to bring back for Daddy, a Barbie, and two thousand rides on the carousel. Jordon did not go with us last time, so I'm sure we'll have to find every video store. Jessica will just ask for money and then probably not spend it. I'll probably just come home with nothing and my hubby will ask, why do you go on a shopping trip and not buy anything? I will answer with, just the thrill of going somewhere is enough for me. Then he will feel guilty and take me out to dinner.

I also get to watch little Zman this weekend because Jessica is going to Chicago on Saturday with a friend. I must be getting better about her leaving town because my first thought was about wondering how I will baby proof my living room for the day instead of my usual OH-MY-GOSH-YOU-CAN'T-LEAVE-TOWN-BECAUSE-I-WILL-WORRY-SO-MUCH-I-WILL-DIE!!

So hopefully, the baby won't wear me out too much on Saturday that I am tired for our Sunday trip because I'll need all my strength to run away from those mean shoppers.

Spoken like a true grandma - grandbabies tend to distract you :) Good luck on your shopping trip!

Enjoy your shopping trip! I'd so love to go on one myself and use someone else's credit cards to fund it.
