So there was a particular store I wanted to go to to buy goodies for my tube. Problem - it's 3 hrs away in St. Louis. So yesterday when my fiance's golf game got rained out I convinced him that instead he wanted to go to St. Louis with me. So we got there and when we got to the store there was a closed gate, and a sign "be right back" we continued to wander the mall hoping that whoever left the sign would return, but after checking back 2 more times they never did. Epic failure, and now I have some very empty tubes and only a week to fill them (as well as a wasted tank of gas, and a wasted Saturday).
I had also had a great idea involving shrinky dinks, that didn't pan out either. I am failing miserably on the tube filling front. I feel pretty sucky right now.
Oh, Lisa! I'm so sorry you went through all of that trouble. Three hours away?! You're one dedicated swap partner!! I don't deserve that much effort!! Since there isn't that certain store anywhere around me, I just go to Target, Forever 21, or Hot Topic when I need my fix. Especially Target!! I saw them unloading some *goods* into the dollar aisle yesterday and nearly had a heart attack. I would have snagged them up, but they weren't even out of the boxes yet!! (btw, I'm not specifying what we're talking about just because it makes me feel like we're in the CIA or something having a top-secret disclosed conversation.) Dork alert!!!
***Oh, and sending a few days late is fine for this one guys, I know there are quite a few of you who are having some last minute issues! Don't sweat it!! I know you're all working hard and keeping up with good communication. Better to finish your project and be happy with it than to try and rush.***
