I took a photo so I'd have proof.
I immediately regretted taking the photo because I saw what a bad hair day I was having, and I almost bailed on the plan. Then I realized that the photo showed me still in my house, so what the heck does that prove?
Well, you'll have to take my word for it. I left the house. WOOHOO!
My leaving the house celebration (Oops, I mean 299th post celebration!) included a trip to the post office to mail the notes I'm holding in the photo above. They're ATCs headed to France and Italy. Too bad my celebration didn't include a visit to one of those places. After that, I headed to the antique mall and got the treasures shown below.
Then I stopped by Java Johnny's to get a chicken salad sandwich and some Chai tea to go.
My little celebration was no thrill-a-minute roller coaster ride, but it was a change from my normal routine. Every once in a while I need to remember what it's like to put on shoes. And pants.
