Shaken up

This afternoon we were running errands. Last on the list: head to the mall to the food court (because they have awesome changing stations in the bathroom there) and then to Macy's so DH could use a gift card.

We were pulling into the parking lot as police were closing and evacating the mall. There was a shooting at the food court. Macy's was locked down. It was chaos as the parking lot clogged and ambulances swarmed each entrance.

We were about 15 minutes away from being inside when it happened.

Thank goodness we made extra stops at Pier 1 and Michael's.

The world is a scary, sad place sometimes.

I heard about that last night. One of my friends was actually at the mall during the shooting near Borders. Scary. I'm glad you made those extra stops.

Well I am glad that you and your family are safe and weren't there at the time. I really hate what is happening to the world these days. It takes something like that to remind us that the world is a very dangerous place.

By the way, I have some questions to ask a lactation consultant. Is Evey still in the Lactation Consulting Business?
