I think it's a serious addiction! What is it? Do I feel I'm being voyeuristic? Deep deep down, do I feel like I'm reading somebody's diary? Well, of course I know I'm not! People are putting this stuff out there for everyone to read, right? I do love meeting new people, though. Maybe that's it? Plus, I'm kind of a commitment phobe. I don't want people to rely on me too much, so I can get to know people by lurking at their blogs and then I leave! I'm in control! Maybe that's it.
Anyway.....I was at Heather J's blog (she's got some fun projects going)and then, of course, I started to look at her favorites (Check out Inspire Co.'s blog and store.) and now it's 1 1/2 hours later!!
Anyway, I found the greatest thing for my sister in law there. I'll post about it after I buy it for her. It was her birthday last month and she was sick for her b-day dinner, so we all ate stir-fry while she was at home sick. Anyway, she comes from a HUGE family. 11 kids. Every one of the kids has a name that begins with "M". Her name is Myrna (and, yes, of course she has an older sister named Martha :).
So birthdays are a big deal because with 11 kids, there's only ONE day that's your special day and that's your birthday! Anyway, the month of February is her birthday celebration, so I found something perfect for her. We normally don't buy gifts for each other, but every once in a while you gotta do it, right? You find something perfect for someone and you've got to get it for them, Right?.....and I LOVE finding something perfect for someone. Doesn't happen often. Plus - did I tell you about my budget?
After the "divorce desk" fiasco, Zuddy put me on budget.
I get $25o a week. That doesn't sound so bad until I tell you that it covers everything: groceries, gifts, clothing, dinner out......hair product. That's right. ladies. You saw it correctly. It seems so unfair! But it had to be done. So, fun little gifts that I used to buy people "just for the fun of it" are now a thing of the past.
It cuts into my hair care, people. And that just can't happen.
It also cuts into the Noodle's wardrobe. And THAT can't happen, either.
I love buying the Noodle clothes. Does anyone ever shop at MiniBoden?
I just love, LOVE their fun applique t-shirts for little girls. I always buy every one they offer. They're sweet and fun.
Oh! Look! One just happened to drop by for a visit!
Okay, I need to go now. I'm volunteering in the Noodle's classroom today. So I need to put on some real clothes and apply some make-up so I don't scare the first graders.
I hope everyone has a great day!!
