The last couple days have been kind of tough. Nowhere near enough sleep, so I've been pretty exhausted and depressed as a result.

Today was a little better. I actually managed to get to sleep around 4am, so I got more sleep. :-)

Autumn and I ran errands this morning. We went to Wal-Mart for groceries and to look at plants. Then to Lowe's to get primer little foam rollers and look at some more plants. While at Lowe's, I lost my keys. Well, to be more accurate...I lost my key (singular). Somehow, the key to the Pontiac managed to come off of my key ring. Still not quite sure how. I got out to the car, used the remote to unlock it and emptied my cart. Put Autumn in the car, put the cart away and went to start the car, only to find I had no key. So I had to load Autumn back up and go back in and ask if anyone had turned in a key. Thankfully someone had.

I meant to get plants at Lowe's (I still need to put in my tomatoes), but they looked pretty sick. So that's put off yet again.

When we got home, Autumn and I read The Tailor of Gloucester and then I put her down for a nap.

Matt got off work not too long after Autumn and I got back home, so I fixed him some lunch and then decided to run around the corner to the scrapbook store and pick up a couple sheets of vellum for a project I'm working on. When I walked into the store I must have looked pretty funny. I caught myself with my mouth hanging open as I looked around the store--empty. Turns out they're closing down on Friday for good. Can't quite figure out how I missed this fact, but somehow I did. Needless to say, I wasn't able to find the vellum I was looking for. However, I was able to pick up a few ink pads and some paper for 80% off. Despite the discount it's still pretty sad though. The store hasn't been there that long and they did have a pretty good paper selection.

We went for a walk this evening before dinner. We headed down to the park and Autumn had a great time playing on the swings and slide with her Daddy. She just giggled and squealed and giggled and squealed and just couldn't stop.

After making and cleaning up dinner, we watched House and I just mixed up a couple of mango-peach margaritas. I still think that the best part of any margarita is the salt. Yummy. :-)
Just hoping to get some sleep tonight.

That is very sad, but hysterical, because my Mom did the same thing with her key this past Monday.
