This morning I woke up early. My daughter and I wanted to leave by 8:30. We went to the new outlet mall for the grand opening. The first 1000 people there received a free $50 gift card for the mall. Unfortunately we just missed the first 1000☹️ We were super close too! We were probably about 20-30 people passed. Too bad. We decided to walk to one of the other entrances. The line up for the first 1000 was super long. We walked around the mall to a different entrance and were much closer to the front. The doors opened at 10:00, so we had a while to wait. Some people brought chairs! We didn’t though. It was a little chilly out, but not too bad. When we finally got inside we first went to H&M. It had a real DJ set up and the music was ridiculously loud! It was pretty busy. There was a deal for the first 300 people, but they didn’t say much about it when we got there. The prices were pretty reasonable. I bought a couple things from the sale rack and my daughter bought herself a couple hoodies. The line up for the dressing rooms and to check out were extremely long! We didn’t try on the things we bought, we just lined up to buy them. A lady gave me a $10 off of anything regular priced over $50 coupon. She saw me in the line and she didn’t want to bother lining up. So, my daughter used it for her purchase, because my items were not regular priced items. We lined up for a good 20 minutes to check out. Which was not bad, when we were leaving the store the line had practically doubled in size and went out of the store!! We went to my daughter’s David’s Tea store next. She gets 50% off anything regularly priced in the store. I bought an iced tea pitcher and a travel tea mug for loose leaf tea. I had to sneak her my Visa card, because they are only supposed to use their own cards for their discount!! We also each bought an iced tea to drink, she had a lemon one and I had one called pink lemonade and it was super tasty. It didn’t even need any sweetener which is nice and healthy! We checked out the Forever 21, but didn’t buy anything there. She had to work at 12:30, so after going in a few other places I bought her lunch in the food court. After we ate she had to go start her shift. I was on the way out, but I first went into a store called Urban Kids. They had 40% off of everything in the store. I bought my son a couple t-shirts and some sweatpants. The pants said $24.99, which is pretty high for kids pants, but I figured that with 40% off it wasn’t too bad. When I got to the till the lady told me that she was going to ring them in at $10, instead of just 40% off. I certainly didn’t complain!! When I finished there I went back out to the van to navigate the confusing, blocked off streets around the mall in order to drive home. They had people and police everywhere directing traffic, it was a bit crazy!! When I got home, I showed my son the clothes that I bought him, he stayed home from school today, because his cold got worse and he was hacking away and not feeling well. We went upstairs and lied down on my bed together playing games, me on my phone and him on the iPad. We first played a couple easy games, but then we downloaded a new Avengers game and played it together for quite a while. The problem was that the game had a ton of downloadable content and the iPad didn’t have the space on it!! We played a silly game with his stuffed animals whenever his iPad was taking forever to download stuff, which was fairly often!! My hubby and daughter went to the city for her dance. We stopped playing our game for supper and then continued playing it until about 8:10. Then we had to hop into the van and drive back to the outlet mall to pick up my daughter from work. Tomorrow she’s going to drive herself, but they have to park in the Jetset parking lot and get shuttled to the mall. When I got to the mall a bunch of different roads were blocked off and there were annoying barricades throughout the parking lot which made it difficult to maneuver and made it take forever to get to the exit that she was waiting at and to get out of there to head back home. Pain in the butt!! We got home by about 9:00-9:10. I then got my son ready for bed and then I sat beside him while he slept in my bed to write this. His mattress comes Friday and then we will see what he thinks about sleeping so high up in his own room!! It’s going to make it difficult to read to him and sing to him. Hmmm… I guess that we will figure something out. I’m going to quickly get ready for bed and then crash. I’m feeling tired and the back of my throat hurts. I’m hoping that it goes away. I was really nauseous again today. That I’m feeling pretty tired of!! I just don’t want to always talk about it and be a downer. I have to call dr May’s office tomorrow. I forgot to do it today. I’m going to go now. Until tomorrow 😘 Night All! 💤😴
