Once again I ended making no progress on the house last night. Mom and I didn't get back from shopping until after 9pm. We went out to dinner and then went by O*ld Navy to get some things for Keegan. Of course I ended up with a bunch of stuff for me too. But atleast I got him a fleece hat and mitten set that he needed along with more shirts for this year and next year. Who can resist $2.50?
How do you know that you are a grownup? When you go shopping for lingerie at V's Secret with your mom. Not only did she help me but she encouraged me to try on all kinds of things. I found what I was looking for and she ended up with a little "somethin somethin" for herself.
I went by Ta*rget at lunch today to get more footie pjs for Keegan and also got a new wool coat and a jacket for myself. They were great prices but I need to stop spending money until next month!
