Exhausting Monday

Monday, March 8, 2010

Today Henrietta and I were up early.  Did more trade show research.  Whew!  Got that done for the day.  I had talked to Mary, and we agreed to meet downtown and ride the Light Rail to the Mall of America.  Henrietta rolled her eyes and laughed but agreed, and Mary thought I was slightly ditzy to drive all the way downtown, when I could have DRIVEN to the Mall just as easily.  Okay--the truth.   I have NEVER ridden any type of commuter train or subway!  I love it!  It was FUN!!  We had lunch at the Mall, and then checked out a few stores.  


 

Truthfully, we were lost a few times.  We walked MILES.  But it was great fun!!  

Tomorrow we pack and head home.  We are planning to stop at a few quilt stores "just because".

Oh, I'm jealous! Sounds like a fun day. I love the light rail. When we go to Twins games (or any other reason to go downtown), we drive to the station close to the Mall of America and take the light rail right down to the Metrodome.

Fun, fun, fun. You have a photo of your metro receipts...did you take pictures of the train, on the train, etc. It would be great scrapbook fodder.

Gotta ask....was the weather better in MN? So sick of fog,gloom,rain.
