Best laid plans...

Well, so much for going to NY this weekend. I intended to leave today, but heard last night that much of I-81 in PA was going to be closed through Noon today. Later today they said it would be closed for another 24 hours. So, I called my parents and talked to them about it, and we decided that since they aren't selling the house immediately and can still sort through some things on their own, that it's not a biggie and they'd rather me not try to get up ther by using other roads that may be in even worse shape. So, I'm going to be home this weekend and go to work on Tuesday. That's actually good because there's plenty to be done here and at work. I hate feeling like a wimp, but I just have no idea what the other roads are like up there near Allentown. So, that's that.

On a happier note, I went shopping today and discovered there's a Feiline's Basement nearby. That place is awesome! I bought a new black scarf (left mine in NY last time), black gloves with little flowers embroidered on them, a black headband for my forehead and ears so that I can stay warm without wearing an actual hat, a new purse, a new tote bag, a new wallet, 3 pairs of cute socks, and a fleece pillow and a fleece blanket for the car. I paid about $80 for all of it, and almost half of that was for the awesome Liz Claiborne tote bag, lol. I usually buy cheap tote bags and then they never carry right. This one is aweseome and has short handled and an adjustable shoulder strap so I can carry it without dragging it or put it on my shoulder without it banging on my knees when I walk. I had to get a smaller wallet to fit in the purse, but I was going to do that anyway because I don't really need to carry my checkbook with me.

So, now my shoulder problems will probably be better. I noticed that my right shoulder had been bothering me lately and I'm sure it's because I was carrying too much stuff to work every day, or just carrying it the wrong way. This will work out better for me.

    You made the right choice in not coming to New York. The ice we got here was awful, and the roads have been trecherous.

    I know where the Filene's Basement is-in Marple Crossroads near my mom. I've been in there once and they didn't have that much. Sounds like you got some great end of the season buys. I'll have to check it out again. I usually end up in JoAnn's when I am in that shopping center. Sorry your trip got postponed.
