Big City Life

I came home for mothers' day weekend and spent last night with the fam. My aunt and 2 cousins, my parents and my niece and I all went out to dinner and then back to the folks' house to hang. My sister showed up shortly later and we all sat and stared at each other for a while.

Yesterday was a monumental day in the Jesus Town. We got a Walgreens. We've had a CVS for a number of years, but what CVS is complete without a Walgreens less than a block away? The grand opening was yesterday, and since we're such a cool and lively bunch on Friday nights, we piled into mom's minivan for a trip to town.

If we didn't look like the biggest hillbillies in the world, I don't know who would. Since my niece gets prime seating in her car seat, I got to hang in the back with my 2 cousins (who are 15 and 17). And we went to Walgreens. On a Friday night. We're so cool.

It's funny because I was pointing out to my cousins that I know some people who don't even speak to their family and here we were entertaining ourselves with a trip to a pharmacy. I'm so glad I have a family that can dork out with me and find the joys in 5 for $10 t-shirts without feeling the need to get all gussied up and go somewhere.

My favorite part of the new store were the clearance items that said "Last chance to buy". They listed the "was" price and the "now" price and urged us to buy now before they got rid of the items. I'm still trying to figure out if the day the store opened was the "last time" to buy these items, when was the first?
