Shopping Day

This is my second attempted at blogging today.  I had another post written and then my computer decided to freeze.  I couldn’t save it or anything.  So here it is again… sort of. 

Matt and I went shopping yesterday.  We had to go to three Home Depot stores to get the drill that I wanted.  After that we went to Kohl’s to see if I could find something to spend my gift cards on, but I didn’t find anything.  I don’t want to even look at clothes until I lose some weight.  So I guess going to Chipotle for lunch afterward didn’t help with that endeavor.  We went to the outlet stores in San Marcos and even though I don’t need shoes, I did find some at the Sketcher’s store that I decided I needed.  I also got Matt a pair of cross trainer shoes as well since it was buy one get on half off.  We went to the Bose store and Matt got new earbuds.  After that it was the Jockey store for new underwear and socks.  We planned to go to the movie and see Jack Reacher last night, but traffic was backed up on our way back into town so we didn’t make it.  I’ve read the Reacher series and I don’t really see Tom Cruise as the the character, but perhaps he will surprise me. 

I’ve been trying to read The Hobbit as well but it is slow going.  Tolkien is very wordy and the tv is distracting.  Josh said that I only need to read a few chapters to be able to see the movie.  We’ll go see it when he gets back to San Antonio.  He left on the 27th to go back to Canyon to visit his friends.  Matt and I are going to a Scrabble New Year’s eve party on Monday. 

Well, I think I’ll do a little more cleaning and try to get the Christmas mess out of here.  Not the decorations, just the “stuff” like wrapping paper and such that needs to be put away.

Jack Reacher was filmed in my neck of the woods, some scenes show places within 2 or 3 miles of my mom's house.

I don't usually do movie theaters, I'm the kind of person who can't sit still in the dimly lit theater, I fall asleep in 30 minutes, so I'll have to wait for the DVD.

Oh well...
