Oy Vey! I went a little nuts on the Holiday shopping weekend.
Online of course… I’m not that crazy. I was busy farm sitting as well and far too tired to make the rational decisions I should have and my kids made out like bandits…
First, the 4 legged one (The horse that is, not all the other 4 legged critters, their presents are the best hay I could find this year!)
New horse blanket, SMB boots. Easy Boot Trails, and some odd assortments of horsie extras…. (for him....not me, I swear)
The 2 legged kiddo-
A Galaxy tab2 7” (I decided an e-reader/tablet combo would grow with him better than just a reader, plus being half off was too good to pass up.)
New electric blue violin (been taking lessons for 2 months now)
Ok, my friend got a new 60” flat and wants rid of her 45” or 50” (I dunno… but big) box style TV and is giving it to me. It is a monster, but how could I say no?
I love having friends with older boys to pass clothes and the “not cool anymore” stuff down to us… it‘s the only way we survive I think.
Well, that and the semi-annual used book/games sale at our small library where I stash stuff away and also clearance sales throughout the year.
I’ve already put dibs on the Wii but that will be a few years yet… so I have to come up with some creative ways to explain why Santa forgot a new Wii this year.
I’ll pick up a few small things for kiddo so he has something from his “list” and then it is on to finishing the apple butter, crocheted items for friends, and starting on the fudge orders, plus farm sitting again….<sigh> ….is it Jan. Yet?
Ok, I confess...
...the reader/tab is really for me. I cannot live without new books and reading materials, but my house is small and full already, so I figure I’ll disguise it as a present for kiddo, but use it for myself to hold my horsie/kiddo safe reading materials but have some fun kids stuff on it too.
That'll work... right??
(Shhhh, he will never know the difference…. I hope.)
