It was a good morning. The little ones didn't wake up until a decent hour, which meant that I slept in. We had oatmeal (with golden raisins (sultanas. there's your vocab word of the day) and cinnamon and ginger and brown sugar. Yum!) and soft-boiled eggs for breakfast, and eventually, we headed out for some shopping.

We didn't find anything that I had planned on shopping for, but I did find two sweaters for me on clearance. And, we had Panda bowls and ice cream for lunch. It made the little ones quite happy.

And then on the way home, a nice police officer gave me a speeding ticket :(

Speeding tickets still make me cry. Oh, not in front of the children, or the officer, although i did feel a sudden need to eat ice cream. And, I don't know why. It's not like in college, where a speeding ticket would mean that I would have trouble paying bills or buying groceries. Perhaps, it's because there's only two choices, either I was doing something wrong, or I was doing something right and will be punished anyway.

Now I have to decide wether to pay it, or to show up for the court date. I think I'm going to go back south of town and look at those speed limit signs again, and then I'll decide.
