On the way home last night, we made a quick* stop at Sally's Beauty Supply so Misty could pick up some sort of hair product. Unfortunately, Emily was a little fussier than usual, and she soon tired of playing with Clifford the Big, Red Dog as I waited in the car with her. When Misty returned to find Emily wailing, she assessed the situation: It was not worth making Emily wait any longer, she decreed we would skip getting milk at the grocery store and just get it tomorrow instead.
Today the weather forecasts are predicting freezing temperatures and sleet overnight and into the weekend for the Birmingham area. Looks like we won't be getting milk tonight, either.
* quick by Misty's standards, not mine
