Little shopping to lift the spirits

After 21 hours of overtime last week I was finally able to slip out a little early today. Was really planning 1/2 a day off but of course it didn't work out quite that way. I was at least able to leave around 2:45'ish which still felt like a treat. I have spent way too much time at work lately.

Was able to walk over to the mall. (I am fortunate enough to work across the biggest mall in New England). Didn't go crazy on the shopping but basically got what I had been planning to get. Some jeans from Old Navy (my old ones are getting all frayed on the bottom), some cards from Hallmark and .. well I can't tell you the last one since it's a Mother's Day gift and I know my mom reads this blog. :)

Got all my shopping done and then sat by the big fountain near the center court and read my book. It was actually quite relaxing and I got all the way to page 100 which felt nice. I have been meaning to read this book for ages. It's set in England, by Marcia Willett called "Second Time Around". Very good so far. I love books set in England. Am a big Rosamunde Pilcher fan as well.

Off to our favorite bar TK's now for some dinner. I am starving .. even though I had pizza for lunch. A day for spoiling myself I guess. :)

What a great day :) A little retail therapy and some downtime goes a long way.
