Learning the Retail levels

Mom Camp, week one was a study in retail levels, something every girl should learn. We started at the top and moved down. We had  Tuesday at Tiffany's, did Wednesday at Macy's and Thursday at TJ Maxx. I really should have done things in reverse order to give Maggie a sense of accomplishment.  

I'm sure this will shock you, but Tiffany's is not a normal stop for me. I've only been in there a couple of times in my life. Maggie and I popped into Tiffany's out of the rain looking quite bedraggled and unlike the typical Tiffany's customer. I left my necklace - a gift from Steve for our 25th anniversary - to be lengthened and off we went. I can't believe I didn't take Maggie's picture amongst the finery. We cruised around Union Square after that and I thought of going back for a picture, but it started to rain (again) and we were three blocks from the car. We opted for a bee line to the car instead. 

We also manage to squeeze in a a trip to the pulmonologist, which is always exciting and ended the week with a ladies lunch. Maggie went to lunch with me, my sisters and my mom to celebrate Grandmas' birthday. That was fun. We went to the Spinnaker in Sausalito. The dining room, which sits over the bay, is completely made of glass. It's like a reverse aquarium, the people are sitting inside the glass watching the sailboats. Maggie thought that was great, but not as sun as pulling off her oxygen tubing about thirty times during lunch (I think she's feeling better.)

Before we went to lunch, thought we did Maggie's favorite thing. She got her summer haircut. I think she likes it.

Now I have to get cracking on activities for this week. There is always golden Gate Park, just steps from our house, but it has to STOP RAINING first. Otherwise, we'll have to do Saks 5th Ave, Nordstom and Marshalls this week. 

Summer school starts Thursday.
