It's like I am 5 and have a dollar to spend. It's burning a hole in my pocket/purse/wallet. We got a refund check back from our insurance, I promptly took my daughter to Target (dumb move on my part, I will give you that) and we blew the whole wad. Let's see, she just HAD to have a new turtleneck sweater and matching tights, and another pair of tights and some knee high socks and a ton of crap from the dollar section, along with new shampoo for her, new hair ties for her and god only knows what else I am forgetting right now. Then on the way home, when I exclaim, "Man, I didn't get anything for myself", she says, "Geesh mom, you could have you know". I love her logic.
I did start picking up somethings for Christmas. I think this is the earliest I have ever shopped for Christmas in my life. I have to say I am little inspired by desirae over at Burnt Cookies and all her Christmas shopping glory. I am far from almost done, but by gawd I have started. (Okay, I cannot believe I just figured out how to put in a hyper link thing AND type over it all by myself... seriously, it's amazing)
I have had problems lately with people having issues with leaving me comments, I tried to fix it. Let me know if it's better. I am no computer genius, that's for sure.
I think I am going to take up knitting. Okay, now that you have picked yourself up off of the floor from falling off your chair in a choking, laughing fit, I am going to TRY to teach myself. suburbancorrespondant is my inspiration in this area. (OMG, once I get something, I really get it... and use it apparently). I think it will be fun and once I get the hang of it, I have an entire year to knit all my gifts for next years Christmas. Brilliant, I say!
Okay, so now that you all see that I seriously have no life and truly get all my inspiration from other bloggers, I have to say I will be kid free tomorrow night and my husband and I are going to one of his co-workers house for dinner. Yes, a big girl night out, KID FREE... did you hear me, I said KID FREE!!!!!!!!! Also, this co-worker is from Russia and she is making us an "authentic" Russian meal. I asked my husband what exactly that entailed and he said, she said (did you get that?!) that it will be a surprise. Is it bad that I am scared???
And, I saved the best news for last (HA)... my cough is better. NOT gone, but better. I am not sure if I have said enough how much I love codeine. If I could marry it, I probably would.
