Matt gets a make-over

Matt finally decided it was time to get some new clothes.  Like a typical man, he hates shopping.  He usually orders his clothing through a catalog.  Since he was off yesterday, I told him that we would go shopping.  He wasn’t really looking forward to it, but it had to be done.  We hit the mall and went to Dillard’s, Penney’s, and Macy’s.  He was able to find several pairs of pants and a couple of shirts.  It turns out he doesn’t wear the size he thought he had – or at least the clothing in the mall is cut differently.  Luckily it was to his advantage that he could get clothing in the “normal” men’s sizes rather than the big and tall sections – of which only a few stores had a handful of items.  I bought him lunch and we even looked at other stores checking out Spurs items.  After the mall, we went to Sears where he found several shirts.  We went to a couple of other places, but discovered that  one store was much too pricey (Pants cost $97 each and shirts were about the same).  I thought he had enough by that time, but he decided to go to Kohl’s since that is one of my favorite stores.  He found a few more pants and another shirt and then was kind enough to let me shop.  I found several tops to try on and he was patient enough to wait and offer his opinion on them.  I ended up getting three blouses and a shirt for Josh.  I think in the end, he was happy with the experience though it was exhausting.  He kept telling the sales people that he was getting a make-over.  He knew it was time as his pants and such were getting pretty ragged. 

After we finished with shopping, we came home and took a nap.  After that we ran to the store and then I ordered wings from Wing Stop and headed to his place to watch the Spurs game.  Thankfully the Spurs won.  We finally got some rain last night so that was great.  My lawn needs it.  We have water restrictions right now and I’m only supposed to water on Mondays before 8:00 a.m.

Today I slept in and then went to the central library where Matt works and got my library card.  I found a few poetry books that I might use to find some poetry for a student in addition to a few other things.  When Matt got off work, we went to church and then he came over and we had some pizza for dinner and watched Sherlock Holmes – the modern version. 

It will be another busy week at school.  I’ve got to get a lot of my inventory stuff done this week.
