One exciting element of my day was going to the new Harris Teeter at Guess Rd and Horton Rd (the “Willow Haven” store as opposed to the now-closed Willowdaile store). I spun a wheel to win a coupon for free Harris Teeter ice cream, a $5.29 value! (And now I will get who-knows how many e-VIC emails). I also was happy to see their promotion for their pharmacy–save $20 on future purchases for EVERY prescription filled at the HT pharmacy. This will add up quickly for me, and also solves my problem of needing to replace Rite Aid, which has pissed me off for the last time (and deserves but will not get a “Rite Aid Sucks” post, although Google will probably now consider this a Rite Aid Sucks post, which is fine).
Excitement continued with the discovery of half-price holiday-themed Yankee Candles at Bed Bath and Beyond. This basically means there are ridiculous quantities of Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Spice candles. I grabbed a couple, because I have come to find that a burning Yankee Candle effectively counters my disillusionment with my impossibly messy and damaged house.
