Pebbles called yesterday morning and wanted me to come to Dallas. Slater is in California visiting friends and then goes to North Carolina for a week on business. He and Pebbles are looking for a place to rent together. Right now, they are both trying to get their respective homes re-let. Pebbles is on the hunt for a new place. And given the fact that I love looking at houses, homes and hovels, I was totally in. So I nosed Malibu Ken towards Big D to spend the day with my kid.
I think Slater is one smart dude. Letting her pick out the place is a wise idea. She has very specific likes and dislikes and places that seem perfectly fine to me, she would dismiss right out of hand. But still, as long as I didn't have a horse in that race and we weren't on a time schedule, it was interesting to go through some of Dallas' neighborhoods. She is not interested in a traditional apartment complex - instead she was looking solely at lofts and building renovation/conversions. So we say some very interesting places. But she fell in love with one. Said she knew it when she walked in. It was lovely and quirky and interesting. No boring beigy stuff for my kid. Now she just has to wait until she gets the sign off on her sublet on Monday and she can sign the lease for the new place.
I made the choice to go to Dallas, so no exercise, no grocery shopping, no cake baking. I did, however, put together a menu for the week and a grocery list. So pretty soon, it's off to the store. Jesus Gym is closed today, natch, so I think today's exercise will be a home DVD, which is fine, since Bick isn't home.
Eating yesterday was, well, not my finest hour.
The thing I loved about yesterday was all of it. It's been a long time since I had the luxury of spending the whole day with Pebbles. Plus I did sneak in a bit of shoe shopping since I was with my shoe consultant. Shoes are here. Love them!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Home is where the shoes are.
