i mentioned that i would really like to go to the quilting store in naperville that teena took me to. he said, "why don't we make a day of it? i could pickup hungry howies, you could go to the quilt store..." a plan was hatched. a plan that i expressed reservations about.
so, this morning i left for grandma duty bright and early. then i met shawn at the end of the blue line. we then drove to aurora to the outlet mall. ugh. shawn did however get a home theater sound system for the new and improved basement. shawn then dropped me off at the quilting store and went to hungry howies. i bought some really beautiful fabric which i, of course, cannot currently use. we then went to ikea and filled every last inch of space in the car. this is the point at which we started getting cranky. we went to claimjumper for dinner and then drove as fast as we could back to the city. we then had to go drop off my artwork at morpho gallery for the show. i was gone from 7:15 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. shawn was gone from about 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. we were probably in the car for half that time. monkey hates us. and we hate each other. the suburbs do this to us.
