My partner has a lot of dentists appointments each week now that she’s 6 weeks into her pregnancy.
Whenever I drop her off at 1 of the physicians’ offices, it gives myself and others a opportunity to go shopping wherever I like for an hour or longer.
Some afternoons I head down to the tunes store to try out various guitars, amplifiers, and effects pedals. Just so the owners don’t go crazy, I always make some kind of purchase when I go in, even if it’s just a pack of strings. Other times I’ll buy some picks, or if I have enough extra cas—an electric guitar effects pedal. With inflation raising prices on literally everything these afternoons, it’s getting harder for myself and others to spend cash like I used to on our tunes interest. Since it just makes myself and others desire things that I simply can’t have, I’ve been avoiding the tunes store lately in favor of the hardware store. At least the hardware store is full of essentials that the two of us need for our house, especially like a/c filters, rock salt for our water softener, or potting soil for the vegetable garden in the backyard. Yesterday I got lost looking at a/cs in the Heating and A/C aisle in the nearby, big-box hardware store. I have always wanted a ductless mini split a/c to put in our tool shed, but it’s a cost that I simply can’t afford to budget when I have a up-to-date baby on the way. I can put up with just using a fan whenever I’m tied up working in our tool shed. Leaving the door and window open allows for a generous cross breeze to get inside, making it much more comfortable opposed to sizzling stagnant air.
