On August 2, I said: Yep, Life is Good! I shouldn’t have to go shopping again for a while.
Totally NOT true! Yesterday morning when I got up, Vince had already read all the sale ads online. Vince likes a little bitty laptop. I’d get the biggest one I could find if it was up to me. Last week he bought one that was smaller than the one he’d bought a month ago but there were a couple in the sale ads that were even smaller. He decided he’d take back the one he bought last week and get the smaller one. Since he hadn’t used it yet and got a great deal on it, I called my dad to see if he wanted it. Yes, he does. Vince said he would ask Chad to go to Kansas City with him. Whew . . I was off the hook but I felt really bad .. he does so much for me, the least I can do is spend another day shopping . . but that’s the last time for a very long time . . I hope! I got dressed, then Chad was up and he said he’d go so we all went.
Honestly, Vince was pretty quick about everything this trip. For the most part, he knew what he wanted and we didn’t have to do a lot of walking the aisles comparing everything.
Here’s some of the loot! A new laptop for Vince. A new desktop for Judy. A new monitor for Judy. Another MP3 player for Vince (I think that makes #4 for him!), a new external hard drive for Judy (actually I got 2 since I need to backup the desktop and I want to keep photos on a separate one), 2 pairs of shoes for Vince, 1 pair of shoes for Judy. Chad got 4 pairs of pants, 2 shirts, a Blue Tooth thing because after my wreck, he’s afraid I’ll flush the cell phone down the toilet if I catch him talking on the phone while driving. We also went to Hyvee Grocery Store and bought a few things there. Of course, we had to shop at Target because you never know . . we were just in Target in Joplin on Friday but there could’ve been more good stuff that we needed at Target in KC on Sunday. Once again, I can’t remember what we bought there. I think I’ve blocked it from my brain!
That’s it! I’ve met my shopping quota for 2008. I will not go shopping anywhere with anyone the rest of the year! And, if we buy anything else, we’d have to buy a bigger house because this one is FULL!
