Busy Saturday

August 4th, 2007

Wow, where didn’t we go today? I swear we drove all over. We got up early so we could hit the community garage sale at the local park. What a bust! There were less booths than last year and mostly just clothes and toys. Not that it would have mattered – I love garage sales but I rarely buy anything. I just like looking.

After that we went to various places…

– The library to get some cds and pick up a copy of the newest Harry Potter book that I had put on hold. It’s for Joe, so don’t get excited. I am not a Harry Potter fan. He isn’t big on reading like I am, and with new books they often don’t let you renew so I joked that he’s going to have to keep putting a copy on hold each time he wants to read the next chapter.

– We finally found an elusive indoor miniature golf place we had heard about. We wanted to know where the heck it was so we can take the kids one of these days. We also spotted some really cool townhomes across the street from said place that look like they belong in Nevada. I’ve been trying to hunt them down on Realtor.com because I’m really curious how much they are and what they look like inside.

– Factory card outlet where I saved a bundle on cheap wrapping paper. Nothing like getting a roll for $1 that is twice as big as the one they sell for $3. I ended up buying a Happy Birthday roll, one for Baby Showers, and 2 all-purpose rolls. I also got 5 gift bags in a pack for $1.50. My total was less than $6. Boy do I love a deal!

– Half Price Books. I saw this organizer software and nearly wet myself in excitement. Unfortunately it was an older version, but at only $8 I almost bought it anyway. Now I’m going to download the free trial to make sure I like it. If I do, I might just buy it online. I really love organization; I’m sick like that.

– Culver’s for a cheeseburger. I rarely go here because they aren’t my favorite place in the world, but I’m sick of McDonald’s, Burger King, and Wendy’s burgers. We contemplated going to Houlihan’s, but I didn’t feel up to spending $30 on lunch. Of course, now that I’m looking over their menu online, I’m feeling a little regret.

– Wheaton library to use their internet to get the address of…

– Holes & Knolls Miniature Golf Course. I wanted to check it out for the kids. It’s really quite cute, albeit pricey, but fun! I got a hole in one on the first hole! Overall Joe beat me, but only by one stroke. I was really impressed with the area. There’s a pavilion with benches, a playground, a little walking path, and a small water park for little kids. It would be the perfect place to take the kids. Pack a lunch, play some golf, and then relax while they ran around the playground.

– Trader Joe’s because I like browsing the food even if I rarely get much. I just can’t justify their prices, particularly for the produce. I got the coolest orange sunflowers, though.

– Dairy Queen because weekend calories don’t count. I got a dipped cone which I haven’t had in forever.

– Walgreen’s to pick up some milk.

– Home to listen to the stupid neighbor’s dog bark for a couple of hours until said neighbors got home. I’ve been doing laundry all afternoon and of course this part of the day has gone by faster than when we were trekking all over the place. It’s been raining on and off since we got home too.

    I must’ve scared you off Houlihan’s, didn’t I? It’s the one place I reviewed on that review site you suggested for me. I say they’re good, and you stay away because you don’t trust me. I see how it is. ;-)

    “…weekend calories don’t count.” Why has NO ONE ever told me this? Sheesh. To think I’ve been missing out!
