end of the week

By Tara Zandra | April 27, 2007

It was a gorgeous day for Park Day today. Tons of new people which is good. It’s nice that our group is growing as we just started up in September.

Once home I got Daisy down for a nap and then Tabitha and I each did our own thing while eating lunch until it was time for violin. Today was an hour lesson so Daisy and I came home to wait here. I can keep her calm and happy for a half hour lesson but more than that and she would get too disruptive, I would think. There’s a separate waiting area, but the walls are very thin and Daisy’s voice would definitely carry through.

Chris came home and we all went to Farmer Boys for dinner since it was a fundraiser night for Girl Scouts. It wasn’t for our troop, but for our neighborhood. We didn’t see anyone we knew but had a good time even if we discovered the ranch dressing has anchovies. Thankfully they had plenty of other yummy condiments for us.

We needed to stop at the grocery store on the way home and I just happened to go to the one that just happens to be next to a Hallmark store. They have 6 Webkinz, two of which are the Lil’ Kinz (meaning, half the cost). I told Tabitha to choose between the two and then we go to pay. The clerk tells me my total is $19 and change. Um, no. The Lil’ ones are supposed to be around eight dollars and the large ones are supposed to be around $15. She says she’ll check but the other clerk says she also thought it was odd but all of them no matter the size are ringing up the same price. Well, that’s nice, but it’s still twice as much as it’s supposed to be so we did not buy it. Tabitha didn’t even a tiny bit complain at all so we’ll be going to another store tomorrow to make sure she gets one; at the proper price, of course.

Home again and I kept an eye on an ebay auction (selling, not buying) and am pleased with the final price. It’s going to pay for Daisy’s sock monkey dress I’m having made for her. Both kids played with Chris and watched the Dodgers and now they are both in bed so it’s time for me and Chris to play our game together :)

    Wow… I live in New Hampshire, We pay $10.00 for the big web kinz. And usually between $7 or $8 for the lil’kinz. My youngest daughter has over 20 of them! :)

    We pay the same here for Webkinz as the last comment does in NH. Maybe its something about your coast vs our coast. Of course. Right now they are out of stock everywhere locally. So, who knows
