I feel like I’m “biding my time in between breaks” from in between Thanksgiving to Christmas…when really, a month is quite a bit of time to “bide”! Hard to get your butt in gear.

We got our tree last night. Dad came with us to get his too and then we all ate at Hu Hot (hadn’t eaten there in forever!). I decided to start out with red and silver decorations and then we’ll just add on from there. I underestimated how many strands of lights […]

Heard on the radio this morning that they calculated that if you bought everything on the list “for your love” in the 12 Days of Christmas, you’d spend about $18,900……I’d rather have a nice camera.

Long weekend

So our long T-Day weekend was fantabulous, but too short like most vacations are .
We headed down to Kansas Wed. night (with the liquor-free stop to Hy-Vee I wrote about before), got in around 11ish. We didn’t do much before going to bed. The next morning I got up at 8:30 to […]

So when I asked Philo what we should bring for T-Day she said we should just bring drinks, pops, wines, apple juice for the kiddies. We only had pop in Des Moines so we packed that up and then on our way down Wed. night we planned to stop closer to their house and […]

I ordered some stamps from Photo Stamps.com for our wedding RSVPs. Initially I thought we’d put them on our invites, but then I realized it made more sense to put them on the RSVPs, that way people can see the stamp with our faces on it before the post office stamps it. I […]

I’m so pissed I WAS going to buy the stock when it first went public at $100/share, but in talking with my dad, he said “I don’t know, you couldn’t get very many shares” so I decided not to. Even if I only bought 10 shares, I’d still be up $4,000! Damn

A whole bunch of nothing

We had a particularly extra lazy weekend which is both good a bad, good to lay around and relax, but bad b/c it’s hard to laze around w/o a little feeling of guilt about other things you could be doing, but not to the point where you talk yourself off the couch
In fact, the […]
