Have a little, Spend a little

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.

I think it's awesome you are going to learn how to knit. (teach me too). What a head start you could get on Christmas for next year (I am envious, seriously). How the heck did you figure out how to do that link thing? (I even tried the help page, and I was like huh? What? I'm not sure but it may have been a foreign language) Kid Free Night!! Go you.. Even if the food is bad, or authentic doesn't agree with you.. It's still an all adult night!! (Evens itself out.) Good job on the early christmas shopping. Wow, this is super long..Ok. that's all..

Apparently it's true what they say about Russians...they like Vodka. That will be what is waiting for us upon arrival. That should mix well with the codeine, right??!!

Congratulations on figuring our the hyperlink thing. My twelve year old taught me how to do it; he's very helpful, but now whenever I call him and he knows I'm on the computer, I'm not sure, but I think he does a mental eye roll. God bless!

Glad you are feeling better. Have fun at dinner with no kids. Good Luck with the knitting.

I think I am going to go and sit in my corner and cry. A Kid Free night? What exactly is that? I am praying for a kid free hour one of these days, LOL.

Make sure you let us know what was for dinner. Russian meals. Hmmm. My brother went to Russia, but I never thought to ask about what they fed him. I would take something in your purse just in case ;)

Well... what was for dinner? For some reason I am extremely interested in what a Russian dinner includes.
