I hope everyone is having a good holiday weekend! We're making the most of it by doing lots of weekend-y things.
Yesterday I used my 10% Target shopping day card thingie (you get one for every $10M spent at Target or something) and bought every single thing that I could possibly need in the next 3 months and a few things nobody needs. Among the booty: 5 colorful plastic pint tumblers that e-baby thinks are The Awesome; 168 diapers, size 3 (for reference, they stay in size 3's for about 16 years so stock up once you get to that size); a cubic foot of baby wipes; a 5x7 frame for SNG's office; mom and dad's birthday present (which I won't reveal here because, you know, they read this blog!); 2 boxes of organic baby oatmeal; an iPod USB charger for work; some stationary for e-baby to write letters to people whenever she wants; etc. I love going to Target. I won't step foot into a WalMart if I can possibly help it. If we had Costco here, I'd be over the moon. Go figure.
When I unloaded all our Target goodies yesterday, I opened one of the Pampers boxes and look at the free gift with purchase I found inside!
After Targetfest, we(SNG) did some yardwork since we had 2 big, dead trees and one old dead stump removed last week so the yard has a divet about the size of a mature sourwood tree across it. Ours was only about 40-50 feet, but that's a lot of loose bark to rake away.
Now we're cooking ribs (what a coincidence!) because we'll be having a pre-Memorial day picnic with a few friends later on today. After hemming-and-hawing over which city/state park we should go, it was determined that my house, with its clean toilets and indoor climatization, would be an ideal location. Which suits me fine, since I like nothing better than having friends over. Even more so now that we have a cleaning service again.
For a few weeks things were sketchy around here-- one invoked the 30-second rule at their own risk.
As it gets warmer, we have to be careful not to slam any exterior doors or windows because our outdoor pets are returning.
