All hail the Garmen

Have I told you lately how much I love the my Garmen? It allows me to go a myriad of places I would never dare to venture before. I am so spatially challenged it's pathetic. I've lived in this here town since I was 7 and I STILL get lost in it. Don't feel sorry for me (anymore), I have a little screen on my windshield to save the day now. It even takes me home. Tonight I went to see my friends Brandy and John at Medical City. Before I had my miracle screen I would have NEVER ventured into unknown lands alone. But, now that I am confident on all city streets, I was able to go. If you don't know the story of the Sloan's crazy week, you can read it here. Anyway, Luke and I went over and visited for a while, which was really nice. I did go during rush hour traffic, which was not the best planning on my part, but I figured it was okay since I really didn't have anywhere to be and to be a true member of the metroplex you must drive in rush hour at least a couple of times a year. Even though I was feeling no road rage what so ever, I was tempted to tail gate and honk and shake my fist at someone just for the heck of it. Then I remembered that I love Jesus and continued to sing to the radio.

After our hospital visit Luke and I did a little shopping. I'm in the market to get some new glasses, but I really don't want to take the time to pick anything out. Which is silly because I really have nothing but time. Just the thought of having to figure out what frames to get makes me tired. Then we went to the fabric store to look for something for me to make Luke a bag with. I have the picture in my head of what I want- vintage cowboy- but the selection was very disappointing . Anyone know of any good fabric shops in the area? If I'm going to start making things I need a good selection!

I so badly need a Garmin. I promise you, no one is worse than me. I would get lost in a paper bag, and it is so stressful!

Have you tried the fabric outlets warehouses on Harry Hines? They are amazing, a little sketchy looking, but good fabric at good prices.
