|My special breed of luck seems to have continued today. Shortly after I got up we decided to run a few errands, but mom needed to do a few things before we could go. By the time we were ready it was close to lunch time, so we just had an early lunch.
Running errands had its unexpected points. For example while we were walking down the cat food isle I spotted a quarter-sized spider crawling on mom's shoulder. I calmly told her to take off her coat and knowing instantly why I asked her to do that she took it off and threw it on the floor in a millisecond. The spider crawled off the coat, and I smashed it quickly. Both of us spent the rest of the day jumpy and creeped out. Just where had that spider been and where did it come from?!
At the checkout we realized that we'd left our jar of coins in the car, so we decided to carry the groceries to the car and then return and cash in the coins. To our surprise it was pouring rain outside! We hurried to the car and back into the store, but got pretty wet. Adding insult to injury, the CoinStar was out of order so we got wet for nothing.
We decided to try the other grocery store and see if they had a CoinStar and maybe pick up some random things. They did, and they also carry the best type of salsa, so we cashed in the coins and bought the salsa with some of the money.
I spent the afternoon working on and finishing a comic. The last comic will be done tomorrow. The rest of my day was spent puzzling over various things, mostly mom's blog's backend.
