the sun is shining, the tank is clean...

Oh My God.  My husband has been kidnapped and replaced with a better version.  Whu-huh-who?  you may be asking.  Me, too.  He got back from his trip last night and Gave.  Me.  Money.

<lj-cut text="what to do what to do">
This is the man that asks, do we REALLY need to ge the kids shoes?  Can't we eat rice and beans every night?  Then calculates the cost of eating canned tuna each night and expects me to duplicate dinner every night for $2.73.  For a growing family of 5.  It's nice to pay bills ahead of time, to pay towards retirement and know we will never be thrown out of our home, but A GIRL'S GOTTA SHOP.
I am so not that girl, BTW.  So, I'm thinking of what to spend my money on, and this should give you a peek into a dorkiness:
1. fabric to make window treatments for my number 3's room.
2. fabric to make big squishy pillows for my number 2's room
3. a sack of bulbs for my spring garden
4. maybe a CD - BUT WHO???????
I have books, I hate buying clothes and shoes, don't wear jewelry, don't wear makeup, spent crazy mad dollars on hair stuff, cause people?  Leo.  It's ALL about my hair.  So?  I am a nerd and buy things to give me chores.  Wheee!

Interesting thing about New Orleans right now: he says the water tastes awful, so everyone is buying bottled to have something to drink.  And a bottle of water costs almost 3 bucks.  Fuckers.  Taking advantage of people suffering from the hurricane!  Horrible, horrible people.

Hmmm... I spend money on EVERYTHING you don't. For you I'd go with the window treatments, 'cuz window treatments rock the hizz-ouse! or a CD, but yeah, decisions, decisions on that one.

Oooh, and they are a design by MEEEE so they will be so purdy in her window....

::dances with you, almost knocks over a lamp, disguises it as cool late-80s hip hop dance move::

I was a little sad that you didn't comment on the LHotP slash...

Stupid LJ cut-tag not working...

You mean that wasn't a cool 80's hip hop move? I was gonna try it at m'next party.

I didn't even log on yesterday until late and I only skimmed my flist, but I didn't even see it til this morning. I'm so confused about the LJ cut-tag problem. Mostly cuz I'm not having one? My works fine. Weirdos.

You sound so talented with the handicrafts, I used to be an avid cross stitcher until I got sucked into the evil time consuming world created by Joss Whedon. They used to say in the old witch burning days that red hair was the sign of eeevil. It's true having tow read headed kids of my own ;)

I could recommend a cd, The Soul Sessions- Joss Stone. I have been burning that little baby and converting some of my US friends to her wonderful singing voice.

You can find out about her at http://www.jossstone.co.uk or http://www.jossstone.com its one or the other, she had a hell of a voice for a 17yr old.

Tee hee! (points to your icon)
Oh, I have been down with Joss Stone for a while. Heard her voice paired with some of my neo-soul faves, then SAW her picture and did a triple take. I had a serious Rick Astly moment. She rocks!!

Yes, I am of the cross-stitch, the knit, the gardening and canning variety, but I SWEAR that I am not 83, as my interests may imply. And I don't know any 83 year olds that write Little House and Spuffy smut.

Red is eeevil... Why do you think I have a sekrit crush on Ron Weasley? ;-)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
