Gretchen thought that sounded reasonable and we planned to buy another car seat several months from now. So after lunch, she ran into Michaels looking for ribbon for Julie's christening dress and frame parts for the painting that catalana gave us (successful on the first; no luck on the second). Then we stopped at Sam's Club where I ran in to grab baby wipes and meat.
And there, on the corner opposite the wipes, was a stack of car seats, identical to the two that we have. Now, Gretchen would prefer a seat that's slightly easier to install. On the other hand, this was an expensive car seat that seemed to be here because it was being closed out for $92. I called Gretchen on her cellphone.
And then I bought another car seat.
What I saved on that seat just about paid for two years of Sam's Club memberships. Not bad.
