Good Thing I Had Boys

I decided I wasn't going to let this "spring break" (insert air quote finger motions) pass without accomplishing at least a little something, so since any gardening except perhaps rice planting is out of the question, today found me visiting WalMart. For some time I've wanted a tiny knitting project bag to carry in my purse and this pattern  for a bracelet bag looks like just what the doctor ordered.

It's been a long time since I've bought bangles in WalMart--I do have some minimal standards when it comes to my jewelry, and if I'm going to buy it in WalMart it has to be on sale--so I wandered around for quite a while looking for costume jewelry and wound up in the toy department.


Did all of you know that there are this many Barbie dolls in the universe, let alone in a single Small Town box store?

Conversely, there is only this much Play-Doh.

Really. That is all the Play-Doh in the ENTIRE STORE. When the Boys were growing up, I could have scraped that much out from under the play table at any given time. They loooooved Play-Doh, and we had multiple buckets of the little canisters, plus shapers and extruders and accessories.

I can only come to two possible conclusions:
  1. I have no clue what children are playing with these days. 
  2. Based on the involuntary shudder that went through me as I surveyed all that pink, I would have been the worst mother-of-girls ever.


  1. THANK YOU for the bracelet purse idea! I love it! :)

  2. I can't imagine you being the worse mother-of-anything and I predict the pink may start to grow on you when you have your first granddaughter.
