Day with friends

Got up and had breakfast, then [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother picked me up with Theo and we went to Westchester. First we went to Costco, where [personal profile] mashfanficchick and I did some shopping, and grazed our way through the free samples while her mother and Theo napped in the car. Then we went to Stew Leonards and got food for lunch after going through the store for Theo's entertainment.

Stew Leonard had no space for eating inside, however, and the outside area was closed due to the weather, so we went back to Costco and ate in their food area. And when we left it was snowing. And continued snowing the rest of the day.

We drove to White Plains in search of a CVS that had an elevator that Theo saw on YouTube (yes I know, for a kid he has curious interests) but didn't find it. Or rather, we think we found the store, but they no longer had the elevator open to the public. So that was a wild goose chase.

I called the FWiB from the car, and we talked for awhile. All is well with him.

By then it was night, so we went back to the Bronx to a mall there, and went to Bath and Bodyworks where I got some handsoap. Theo rode the elevators for some time, and then we went to Ted Robin for dinner. Yum.

Then we went to the same Target that I go to after work on the way home sometimes. I got a pair of rainboots, and [personal profile] mashfanficchick got diapers for Theo, and a small toy for him. And Theo rode the elevator.

Then the bummer part of the day. The car wouldn't start. It was pretty scary. But we got a jump from one of the people working there, and it started after that, and they brought me home.

All is well here. I asked [personal profile] mashfanficchick to text me when they got home so I'd know they were safe, and she did. Theo was playing with the elevator.

So that was the day. Mostly a pretty good one, with a little excitement at the end.

Gratitude List:

1. The car started.

2. Friends.

3. The FWiB.

4. Everyone got home safe.

5. New boots.

6. Bed soon.
