You may be wondering what this picture of me has to do with "THE MALL". Well, that is me with my new glasses on that I got today at the Arrowhead Mall in Muskogee. The eye doctor's office is in THE MALL and right next door is the Eye Mart, where they make the glasses "while you wait" type thing.
I left home at 8:30 a.m. this morning to go to Muskogee for my 10:00 a.m. doctor's appointment. Got to THE MALL about 9:30 a.m. so had a little time to find the place (I'd only been to THE MALL once before and then just inside the door, so to speak.) Are you getting the hint that I'm not a mall shopper?? Anyway, once inside I thought I'd treat myself to a cup of coffee - which I did and it was bad. Then walked around the corner and there was a coffee store - wouldn't you know! Lattes, espresso, all those good coffee drinks and biscotti and brownies, etc. (Heavy sigh.) On to the doctor's office. Eyes dialated, exam done, prescription in hand, go next door to order glasses, will be 3 hours and they will be done. OK.
So, sister-in-law Mary (who went with me) and I decide to go shopping. I was looking for a pair of summer sandals - no luck. We went in to several shoe stores, but nothing I liked. She did buy a new pair of shoes though. Then to an accessory store and bought a new purse (above). Then we had lunch in the food court - Chinese not too good - and left for WalMart! There I found my straw cowboy hat (above) that I've been looking for to keep the sun off my nose when I go outside. About 2 or so years ago I had skin cancer on my nose and had to have surgery, and I needed a hat to keep the sun off my beak! I had one before, but can't find it since we moved. Also got a new watch that has all the numbers on it so I can tell time, and a cute purple tank top with sparkles on it. Had to get water of course too.
Then back to THE MALL to pick up my glasses, only to be told they were running behind and it would be another 20 minutes. Well, that turned in to an hour and a half, so we finally got to leave THE MALL for home about 4:00 p.m. You talk about a loooong day! And it was only 97 outside, not counting heat index. Personally, I don't care if I ever go back to THE MALL!!
So my friends, that is all for today. I'm tired and worn out. That city girl stuff is too much for me. Y'all take care and God bless.
