Day 136 – April 24, 2011

This morning, we basically had the same routine as yesterday.. got up, showered, got ready, went downstairs for breakfast… the only difference this morning was that we were in a disagreement… I was upset about how my parents were behaving and my dad said he wanted to leave as soon as possible, so I figured it was best that I didn’t go see AH and started our drive back to Canada. I felt bad not going to see her for many reasons, so since I was driving, I turned around and drove back into Boston.

Driving on I-90/ Mass Pike

In true Boston form, the GPS got us lost.. I couldn’t remember exactly how to get to AH’s place but I had an idea… anyway once we finally got there, it was super nice out. We chatted and got caught up. It was really nice seeing her, after about half hour, we were back on the road. All was going well until I started to feel sick. Luckily, there weren’t any accidents and I was thankful for a CVS that was open to help. It took us forever to get back across the border (we didn’t get charged duty and the passport stamp procedure was much faster), but then my mom started to feel sick. We got home and unpacked the car. It was one long day..

Day 135 – April 23, 2011

After showering, dressing, and generally getting ready, my sister and I went downstairs to grab breakfast… the parents were already down there. It was a nice surprise that the hotel had more than a continental breakfast. The weather was rather crappy and rainy so we decided to go to the Burlington Mall first, then Target & TJ Maxx, then back to the Wrentham Outlet mall so my sister could finish shopping and my dad could return a shirt.

Yesterday, I was fine at the mall yesterday, but driving up I-95 past my old exit was overwhelming. I can say with certainty that I still hate Boston.

At Burlington Mall, my goal was to purchase items for our vacation. My sister and I spent some time at Forever 21 and I got a solid brown maxi dress and some earrings. I didn’t find anything at Lululemon (I wanted to get some crops but they only had solid black ones), and we went to Everything But Water where I got a couple of bathing suits. It wasn’t as tough as I thought it was going to be.. but it was all due to my personal shopper.

Next, we headed back down I-95 to Plainville/Wrentham and it was still raining…

You can't really tell but it was raining

We spent quite some time at TJ Maxx first (I didn’t buy anything) and we sent my dad off to Target while my mom & sis continued at TJ Maxx. I don’t remember what they purchased (if anything). At Target, my sister and I got the same nail polish (lol I know you care baby); it’s such a pretty colour 😀

Cute as a button

Back at Wrentham, my sister went through pretty much all the stores, and I got a couple of books.. these will be a surprise! Then our time was up and we were trying to get back on time. My dad misunderstood what time we were supposed to meet at and was upset that we were an hour late (we were 20 minutes late and I had tried calling him).

We went back to the hotel, then ordered food and picked it up. We also packed up our stuff and got ready to go back tomorrow. All the stores are closed, so we will go see my good friend AH and then we’ll be on our way home.

Day 134 – April 22, 2011

Today is a statutory holiday in Canada so I am the only one having to take a vacation day. I woke up to Dusty kneading me; I looked at the clock and it was almost 4am… we were supposed to be on the road at 3am. It turned out, only my sister set her alarm and she had set it for 2pm instead of 2am. We scrambled around and got ready to go.

Printing out the hotel confirmation and Buster watching intently

On our way to Boston (after the 2 hour wait at the border so I could get my passport stamped), we had to keep ourselves entertained.. I chatted with you for a bit and my sis mostly slept, especially as a co-pilot… but she was awake enough to try out the 3DS.

she liked it.. but playing w/the 3DS plus being in a moving car was not a good combination for her

Once we got to the Boston area, we went straight too the mall.

On their way to shop

We shopped until the mall closed (I got a dress and a pair of shoes), then we went to check into the hotel. We were pretty exhausted and fell asleep before 11. More shopping tomorrow!
