I shopped like a big dog today. New Gortex brown waterproof work shoes, kitchen blowtorch for creme brule, pyrex measuring cup to replace the one that committed suicide, some assorted pyrex baking and storage dishes, and pricing some denim comfy chairs. All with Serena for company. Unfortunately I didn't know my mom was coming in early today, but she managed without me just fine as she found her key and made herself at home while I shopped. I'm still debating $650 for a custom made Lazy-E-Boy chair or $550 for a denim chair that's practically loveseat sized and fits two. I'll mull that over a bit more.
