Yesterday when I dropped Martin off at work he gave me a wad of cash for my day with the car. I guess it was supposed to be for coffee, since those were what my plans were--to go to coffee with Mary and/or Alison. Well, I went to Mary's house, Alison came to my house, and as you've read, I didn't get to do any spending at Nature's Pharm. So around 6:30 last night I was all alone with Anja feeling sorry for myself and trying to keep Anja awake while just waiting until it was time to go pick up Martin. Finally I thought, "Forget this, I'm going to Target!" and Anja and I went to check out the clearance bins. We went to the makeup aisle looking for yummie lipgloss, and I ended up getting a tube of DELICIOUS lipgloss that tastes like grape and has a really pretty color. I don't know how much I spent on it, because there was no price on it. I also got some body butter that smells deliciously refreshing, and it was only $2.50. And I also got some lotion that also smells delicious, and it was only $1.50! When I pulled out the wad of cash up at the checkout line I found that I had eight dollars. My total was $8.77! I had the change in my pocket!
The nice thing about being a stay-at-home-mom is that I have the option of wearing shoes. Today I don't really feel like wearing shoes, so I'm not! It seems like a good day to be barefoot.
Anja seems to be getting onto a divinely inspired schedule. Last night she went to sleep (in the car) at 8:30 and she woke up this morning at 7:00. She's been doing close to that for the past few nights, and it's been fabulous. I love getting up early with her, as long as she hasn't gone to bed at midnight or later, and I really like being up before Martin leaves for work. So if this schedule sticks, this should be a happy household!
