And I spent way more than I’d planned. Got new panties! Got a LOT of new panties! Bad me. But I haven’t gotten new undies in years, the ones I’ve got are stretched out and faded and the white isn’t white any longer. So….
I actually went for bright colored paper (to print CAUTION messages for the hydraulics he ships out) and inexpensive food storage containers. We’d gone to CostCo the night before and they didn’t have either of those. I wanted the storage containers because I had this brilliant idea.
I took my mother-in-law to her eye doctor yesterday morning (she had cataract surgery earlier this year) and then we went to Target for her to do some shopping. She quit driving at her last birthday since it was time she had to renew her license and she figured she didn’t want to drive any longer. She still has her van, keeps it insured because my sister-in-law uses it for her running around and when she takes my MIL to places she needs to go. I took her in my car..
Anyway, while we were at Target she got some frozen dinners and said she knew they weren’t the best thing to eat, but it’s hard to cook for just one (I know that, I was single for a lot of years, I ate one meal a day; usually at work, some sort of fast food for lunch…hey, no wonder I didn’t have a weight problem back then….).
So, I had this brilliant idea. When I fix dinner for Brian and myself, there’s usually enough left over for one serving. One of us will have it for lunch. Instead of doing that, I could just put it in a container and send it over to Brian’s mom! And she’ll have a homecooked meal! And that’s the reason for the storage containers. I got a bunch of them!
And I got a new T-Fal frying pan. My regular cookware is T-Fal, got it from QVC before the internet (which I joined on August 1, 1996, trying to find some advice on getting Red out of the rafters; never got the advice, but I stuck around), which tells you how old this stuff is. The non-stick coating is gone from the pots and pans we use the most. Brian’s been wanting to get a full set of cookware, which is just silly to me. Because there are maybe three pieces of the stuff we’ve got that has the coating problem. And I hate the idea of throwing ALL of it out because of three pieces. So, today, I replaced one of the frying pans. When I got home, I checked to make sure the lid we’ve got for that size worked and it does. The old fry pan is in the trash. I’m sure I’ll catch some flack for it, but oh, well, it had to be done.
Last night at CostCo, I saw the most adorable little laptop computer. Not even ten inches wide! And it was under $300.00! I wanted it. Now, I don’t NEED it, but I wanted it. Because it’s just so keeYOOOT! Brian kept telling me “no”. Or “when the credit cards are paid off.” But, honey, it’s so keeYOOT! “Don’t you have a laptop?” Well, yeah, but that shouldn’t even enter into this equation. Don’t you understand? This little laptop is absolutely ADORABLE! Men.
Needless to say, I don't have a new adorable keeyoot little laptop today. After all, there's that pesky mortgage payment we have to make. Wouldn't want the bank putting the place up for auction now, would we?
