The one store I haven't made it to with motherinlaw is Ikea and it's too late to take her now because she leaves on Sunday. I love taking Ikea virgins shopping, it's like watching someone get their first heroin fix, but it's probably just as well we didn't go. Motherinlaw would run over innocent shoppers with the cart she insists on pushing (but is incapable of steering) and want to buy everything in the store. Then I would have to figure out how to ship it all to her home without taking out a second mortgage to pay the shipping fees.
So now I just have to fit in a day at Ikea between now and September 24th when I start school. Somehow I think I will find a way. I've been lusting over their new fabrics ever since I got the catalog and my sewing machine is up and ready for action.
