It seemed like it would be the perfect day to make a quick trip to Duluth to get the much needed school supplies. Abby already had to be in Two Harbors for volleyball so it’s just another 30 minutes in the vehicle. A Tuesday, not a holiday nor a weekend so things should have been relatively calm except for the fact it was move in day at UMD.
I’m pretty sure every UMD student was in Target with their parents buying everything they needed for college and then some. Fans and air conditioners were flying off of the shelves along with pillows, coffee makers and anything else parents and kids thought they needed.
We needed folders, notebooks, pens, pencils and a calculator. Can you believe there was only one package of #2 pencils left and since we had to ask an associate to help us purchase a calculator we both completely forgot about it and left without getting it?
The place was beyond chaotic and there were way too many people there for my comfort level. Hopefully next year I’ll remember to check UMD’s calendar and make sure it isn’t move in day before I make a trip to Duluth.
