It is the beginning of the month. I wanted to start it off right. I posted a great article that I think could help a few people. I got the day off from job number 2 so I could relax. I even planned on going into the office to train for job number 1. But after fighting with myself all night and this morning I decided not to.
Instead I started my month off with my family. Since I work often it is hard for all of us to get together these days and go out as a family. Since I was off, last night I decided to include myself in my parents plans. This morning I included my sister and nephew.
My parents enjoy traveling around to visit flea markets. Whenever they hear about one that is interesting they usually go. I figured why not just make it a family event with the five of us – mom, dad, sister, nephew, me. I do not remember the last time we were all in one car headed to one place. It was actually very nice.
The flea market was about an hour and a half away from where we live. It was a nice road trip and we even stopped at McDonalds for lunch. The five of us enjoying the unhealthy pleasures of this county.
Back on the road we were at the market within 20 minutes. Nephew strapped to my sister, backpacks on and walking shoes in motion. The sun was hidden in the clouds and the breeze felt pretty good. It might have been the best day for this family adventure.
Being there brought back so many memories. The last time I was was at a flea market was in my early teen years when my father used take me camping with a big group of family and friends. The good old times.
Back then things under those tents looked a lot nicer and I would always want to leave with something. These days another man’s junk can stay his. Out of the entire market I walked out of there with a file set that I got for $4, it was a steal, and a genuine leather belt that might have been a bit too expansive. I just love the quality and smell of them. They last forever.
Family moments come to an end.
We finished up around 3pm. Our feet were ready for a little relaxation. On the way home we stopped at Stop and Shop so my mother and sister could buy groceries. Then we picked up dinner from the local pizzeria for us to enjoy when we got back in the house.
All in all it turned out to be a nice day. It did not even rain as it was forecasted too. The sun actually came out instead.
The rest of the night I went on to do my own thing. I laid in bed watching “Dragon Ball” to relax my feet a bit. I decided to wear wingtip boots for the day. I thought they would be comfortable to use but I guess after 3 and a half hours of walking the feel becomes completely different.
By 11pm I was done with everything.
