We had big plans to get some serious shopping done today, heading to Cordoba mid-morning with a long list. Two things happened to derail our plans. One is that this is a holiday. Apparently a big one, because most businesses and all official offices are closed. Big box stores are open, of course. AND FULL OF PEOPLE. So full of people that the lines snake up and down and around the store, and you can tell it's going to be at least an hour and probably longer just to check out.
No thank you.
Especially because the second thing to derail our plans is a simple little thing called fatigue.
Which hit with a vengeance while trying to brave the crowds at our first stop.
So we ended up at Starbucks, enjoying a shared frappuccino and free wifi.
Part of me feels guilty that we made the trip and won't actually accomplish anything, but I think it's been good to get away from all that remains to be done at the casita and enjoy a change of scenery. We've been pushing hard for a long time, especially the past month. A day off is not out of line.
So rather than shop, we're taking a little coffee break and then we'll head home early. I foresee an early dinner and bedtime, and hopefully a good, long night's sleep.
I'll be back soon with an update on what we've gotten done, and what's still on the To Do list. It's a toss-up as to which is longer.
