Today, we wandered around the Eastern Market and belatedly shopped for my Mom's birthday present (I would post a picture of our findings, but on the off chance that my mom reads this, I don't want her to see it! But take my word for it, it's awesome!). We meandered through a game store and when a woman dropped a game on the floor, I went over and picked it up for her...no, she didn't say thank you or acknowledge me in any way. After that pleasant encounter with a Washingtonian, we went into a used bookstore where the salesman was equally as rude. I'm not quite sure I understood his method of customer service. All of these little interactions built up and caused me to have a breakdown in the park by our apartment, so we decided to cure my plight with some crafting via a trip to Joann Fabrics, then stopped by REI and Costco. Afterwards, Austin made me a delicious dinner and we got our fancy boy and girl clothes ready for our big day of work tomorrow!
Even though the weekend had its definite downs, Austin and I made the most of our time and I can't wait until next weekend! Wish me luck on my first day of work tomorrow!
