Ryan and my dad always spend their time with cows and pigs when we’re at the farm, leaving my mom and I to do whatever we want.
My mom loves two things above pretty much all else- shopping and good food. I had a feeling that I’d be in for a Saturday of bargain hunting knowing that she hadn’t been inside a store in almost a year.
Sure enough, we drove to a local outlet mall, armed with masks and sanitizer, of course, and I watched my mom work her magic. In only a few hours, her car was filled with bags. A whole new golf wardrobe for Ryan, a canvas painting of a bunny, at least 4 pairs of shoes, some candles, a whole slew of sundresses and sweatpants, and who knows what else!
At the end of the day, I was exhausted, and my mom felt the best she has felt in months. Worth the hit to my wallet.
