Gallery: This is what happened before we went to VT on Wednesday.
Random quick story: On my shopping trip with J I discovered Kate Spade’s new line of purses (presumably the Winter ’12 line). In particular, I picked up a purple wool number and petted its fur collar. These purses are styled like coats and this one was plum wool with a faux fur collar and adorable black toggles running down the front. J was eyeing me like, “Put that down now.” I caught her glance, and despite the fact that I couldn’t carry a handbag like that (I need a crossbody strap) I wailed plaintively, “I’m disabled.”
“What do you mean?” J asked. And then she answered her own question. “Since you’re disabled you should get everything you want?” I nodded. “Does that work?” she asked.
