Darn it

There’s a huge sale at Threadless, with some t-shirts that I love as low as $8. 

And all sold out in my size.

*sniff, sniff*

Woot-off today!

There’s a Woot-Off today

Just in case you didn’t know.  And wanted to know.  And all that . . .


Planning ahead for Mother’s Day

Hint, hint

My daughter NEEDS these

How cool are these shoes?

You can draw on them with the included six colored markers, and it just wipes off, with no soap or water needed.  For an artistic and creative kid, these are ideal.  Not a horrid price, either.  These may well be purchased very, very soon.  Heck, I’d like some myself!

A bargain I couldn’t refuse

Staying home from work sick could be a bad thing. 

See, a couple of years ago, I picked up some Heelys for Lauren at a great price.  She loved them.  Then she outgrew them.  And I refused to pay $80 for a pair of shoes that she’ll outgrow before I know it.

But thanks to WantNot (as usual), I found a great deal.  Heelys for $14.95???  Today only, by the way, in case you’re interested.  I just got her a pair of shoes that are regularly $88.95.  In black, of course.  That’s a deal I can’t possibly pass up.  She’ll be very happy when they arrive – I think I’ll surprise her with them.

Hey, I think that makes me feel a little bit better!

Ya takes the good with the bad

The good news?  There’s a Woot-Off today.

The bad news?  It’s my turn for the evil stomach bug that has gone from Sam to Mark to me.  I hope Lauren’s not next!

Hope you’re feeling better than I am.

My daughter will love this t-shirt

I bought it for her yesterday.  It’s absolutely perfect. 

It’s black, her favorite color:  check. 
A butterfly made of skulls?  Totally her!

Yes, my 8 year old likes black and skulls.  I like to think of her as my little goth.

Funny t-shirt

Not looking forward to January

L has been with my folks for a couple of days, and is coming home tonight – yippeeee!!!  Mark and I were talking last night after The Boy went to bed – this must have been what it was like before Sam was born.  One child, after they go to bed it’s all quiet.  Our house has been a lot less noisy than usual for the last few days.

But we don’t like it.  At all.  I can’t wait for L to be home and have all the noise and chaos that an 8 year old brings to the party.  And Sam has missed her a lot.

My folks are getting ready to leave for Florida for the month of January.  My least favorite month of the year, because I miss them bunches.  They are cool people, and it’s really hard on the kids when they’re gone.  Hard on my parents too!  They miss the kids terribly, and I’m always surprised when they stick it out for the entire month.  I think my mom in particular would be happy to come home early!

Last night, I got another xmas present from Mark, which hadn’t arrived in time for the actual holiday, but I don’t care.  I lurve it.

it should be noted that this is a deal where you get the pendants and the wire, but you have to finish it yourself.  And I am not an expert jewelry maker, having never done that at all.  But it turned out pretty well.  I do need to adjust it a little, but overall I’m quite pleased with it.  It was fun to do, too.  I predict a new minor hobby.  You know, since I now have some of the supplies I need anyway . . .
