at work), preparing for this week (another doozy happening as I type), and getting the girlies geared up for the new school year (a week from today... holy cow).
As part of this "gearing up", Audrey and I embarked on some mother/daughter back-to-school shopping in which I tried to "let go"... a lot. Let's just say that Audrey's favorite store of late is, well...my least favorite. Said store shall remain nameless, as nothing good comes from disparaging, but I can say that it's loud and colorful and bright and garish... But I'm sure my mother felt the same when I would drag her to the Contempo Casuals at the Fair Oaks mall circa 1985, so this, I suppose, is the universe paying me back. (Only this time, thankfully, there are no mall bangs involved.)
Post harrowing shopping expedition, I had a good stiff drink, and then we upped the culture ante with a fun event at The Reading Room where the girlies got to embrace their inner patriots with songs and flag making. Good times for sure.
Hope you weekend was splendid!
