Shop till ya drop

Today was a girls day out. We went to Bradenton Outlet Mall.
I think I only spent $40 or something like that. The others in the party
were much more generous than me.

Today was the first day we used the new wheelchair lift on the car for my handicapped daughter! What a joy it was having it! No more lifting the wheelchair for me YEAH!
I actually didn't have to push her around either cause she took her new motorized wheelchair
she got while I was up north- settling things
I almost didn't know what to do with myself not pushing her
Plus in all this heat I didn't get heat stroke or heart attack-what a relief,
we should have gotten it years ago- would have saved me and hubby allot!

When we drove back I used the GPS in the car- one of the gals that went showed us how to get down there- she was amazed I could remember all the turns etc. I laughed out loud and told her I wasn't all that smart I was using the GPS. She had never used or been in a car with GPS and was so very amazed! She actually had an argument with it, said it was telling me wrong and had to apologize to it when it was right. She actually called it a bitch!
We had a great day with just perfect weather! The Skyline Bridge was truly beautiful-you could see for miles!

When we arrived home hubby was full of perspiration from working outside all day! I told him to go get his bathing suit on, he needed some swimming and the hot tub! OOO and drink something!
What a beautiful, sunny morning. It makes you happy to be alive, doesn't it? We can't let the sun outshine us! We have to beam, too!

My younger son has a GPS and was able to navigate to my mother's house when we took a wrong turn and got lost.
