Back From The Store (Photostory)
No, this is not a story about Danielle returning from the store. It is a story about Lena and Alan Jr. returning from the store. I wanted to show everyone that the TJ clothes fit the Starting LineUp basketball action figures perfectly, and ended up turning it into a story instead of just a fashion show.
Lena peers through the back door as she gets ready to enter.
Alan Sr is sitting at the dining room table (in his new sweatsuit).
"Hey honey." (Lena)
"Hey. You're back." (Alan)
"Yes. Can you get the groceries out the car?" (Lena)
"Yes. Give me a minute." (Alan)
"Okay. What's that?" (Lena)
"These are design plans of a new car that is coming to the market in about three months." (Alan)
"Please don't tell me you are thinking about buying another new car." (Lena)
Lena takes a seat at the table.
"You do remember that we just paid a hefty tax bill a few days ago." (Lena)
"Funny how you didn't remember that tax bill when we got new furniture, etc." (Alan)
"This is the first time, since being married, that I've bought new living room furniture. You want a new car every year. It's a car, honey. Not a pair of shoes." (Lena)
"What can I say. I like cars." (Alan)
"Okay. This is not a conversation I want to have right now. Can you please watch your son for the next hour? There is something I need to do." (Lena)
"No probs" (Alan)
"And don't forget about the groceries. There are only two bags." (Lena)
"Come on lil' man." (Alan)
"If you need it, there's a bottle in the fridge. His walker is upstairs." (Lena)
"Go. I got it." (Alan)
Lena heads upstairs.
Lena is resting comfortably in a bubble bath. The new tub is part of the mini home remodel she is having done. She would have loved to have a nice big soaker tub, but the bathroom was too small for that. She took what she could get. She and Alan decided to go ahead and purchase the condo as an investment property, instead of continuing to rent it. She's not sure they will remain in this house, but she knows all the upgrades will increase the property value, and enable them to charge more rent, if and when they move.
