After work today we tried to run an errand to the post office, thinking it would be an easy errand now that tax season is over for the year. I guess there must have been a lot of folks who were filing late because the line of cars to get into the parking lot was stretched half a block away from the post office. I will try again tomorrow. I have a load of books to mail and a pair of postcards. By tomorrow I'll also have bills and some letters to mail.
Since the post office run was obviously not going to happen in the time we had, we headed over to Coffee Cup Cafe, the little place next door to Sean's preschool. There we had blended coffees while Harriet flirted with everyone. We're regular enough customers that they know us by name. Of course it's Harriet who gets the most attention. When we arrive, it's "hello Harriet!" and when we leave, it's "goodbye Harriet!"
The coffee stop took less time than we hoped so we decided we'd try to track down a Wii. We drove across town to Toys R Us knowing that the local places didn't any. Ian had checked them earlier in the day.
While we didn't find a Wii, we did find a wallet in the parking lot. We turned it in at the Customer Service booth at the front of the store. On our way back to the car, one of the employees stopped us and thanked us. We had found his wallet.
