It was good though because my 15 year old daughter was with us and she was excited to be there. I told myself before we went that it wasn't about me but solely for her happiness today so I relaxed and tried to enjoy it. There was one point though when we stopped for a bite to eat in the 'food court' that it pretty much got to me, the busyness and the crowds. I excused myself and went to the washroom and when I got into the cubicle I sat down and put my head in my hands. It was so noisy, even in the washroom that inside I was saying, "Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up." I did manage to zone out for a couple of minutes when we were eating. We carried on and my daughter is thrilled with her new back to school clothes. From there we went to the grocery superstore ............ Needless to say I am happy to be home again. Even though there were a zillion people I could have connected to today I stayed fully connected to my daughter and it worked out beautifully. Once home though flashes of certain people we saw at the mall have appeared in my mind.
