Need to get out of the house

I’ve been cooped up since the surgery 5/6.  I NEED OUT.

So I’m taking a little gypsy-jaunt to Bed Bath and Beyond.  And if I feel okay leaving there, I might mosey over to Pier One, too.  I have 2 birthday gifts to pick up, and want to get new towels to cover the patio furniture.

I’ll be careful.  I’m not really in any pain anymore.  Just the morning D is all.  I just need some change of scenery.  I take this as a good sign.

In case any of you are wondering, the explosion in Aliso Viejo yesterday is about 5-7 minutes from my home.  My doctor’s office is RIGHT across the street.  They have confirmed it was a bomb, or at least not a gas leak.  It’s so weird, though.  This is a very ‘upwardly mobile’ community, about as crime free as ANYWHERE in America, and it was a relatively small, obscure, 2 story medical office building.  I am sure, when all is said and done, they’ll find out it was a (psycho) disgruntled ex employee or an angry ex spouse.  No way was this ‘high profile’ enough, to be a terror incident.

Now that I think about it, that crime scene is between me and Pier One.  So I might not venture there; I’m sure it will still be teeming with authorities.  So sad.  😦

Anyhow, that’s all I have for today.

Hope you are having a fabulous day!

    Enjoy your trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond. That place is gold mine for mindless shopping, at least to me.Scary about the bomb! The mindset of someone wanting to hurt a lot of people when they are mad at an x-spouse or employer is so demented!

    It always feels so good to be out when we've been stuck in. Been housebound for two days now with back pain. Plus it seems to rain every day here. So looking forward to a day out of this house.

    Thanks…except I won't be going alone. My equlibrium problem I've had off and on for a few years, has reared its ugly head since the surgery, and the manuevers I do to stop it require 90 seconds on my stomach, so are undoable unless I improvise….anyhoo, it's bad this morning. If I get out at all, hubby will have to drive. geesh. Can't an old broad catch a break?!

    It's a good feeling to get out of the house even with hubby driving. 😀 I've been in a Pier 1 but never heard of Bed Bath and Beyond. I thought it was a movie at first.

    Isn't it exciting, thinking about retiring? I really enjoy the slower pace and the ability to do things I couldn't when I was teaching. Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you can stop by again soon!

    That doesn't sound the best.A trip out are surgery is always a welcome thing to do, it helps make one stronger and there is a world out there and it feels good to be part of it.

    it helped, yes. :)And I was correct. Just announced that they are arresting the ex-boyfriend/partner of the victim. Found explosive devices in his home.
