The hermit that left the house

It was at some point last night that I realized I hadn't walked out of the house in 48 hours except to get the mail twice.

Is that bad?

I think it was on Thursday night that I called my mom and said, "by the way, I'm going to Waxahachie shopping on Saturday, you can go or not, but I'm just letting you know."

After I picked her up today and hit the road, she said, "your dad... he was laying in bed last night and was trying to remember if he left the house all day."

"Leave Dad alone. There's nothing wrong with that," I tell her.

I was going to Waxahachie because the Walmart here did not have the energy efficient curtains I wanted to buy in the right size. Once I got my electric bill via email last night, I decided the splurge would be worth every penny.

My house is hot during the day, but I don't let the air come on until late because I have to be able to afford my electric bill while working from home all day. My house is going to be mucho dark once I get the curtains up, that's for sure.

When we returned home, my grandmother called and my mom says, "we went to Waxahachie so Audra could get some work clothes." She was being facetious. That was true too, but... Yes, I did want some shorts and non-black dressy pants to wear around the house, but it sounded kind of stupid all things considered.

If I hadn't gotten out of the house today and actually gone anywhere, I may have gone stir crazy. Enough of this house already! Besides, the kids next door could have been home all day banging on the walls. I already had to go tell them to quit it this week.

OH, and I got a frappachino at Starbucks. They really should restock all their stores with the sea salt to sprinkle on top of the salted caramel mocha frappachinos. Even the dinky Starbucks in Target said that people always ask for it, and they can make them, just without the sprinkles on top.

The woman pointed out that starting next week that Starbucks will have Frappachino happy hour with half price drinks from 3-5. Do you know how often I'd make happy hour? More often than I make happy hour at Sonic.

So, I need to go work on my lesson for in the morning, and go hang up some curtains. Hope and pray it blocks out the heat because I can already tell it's going to be a long, hot summer.
