It’s been a while since I posted since I was out of town for two weeks and then sick to the point of barely being able to move for a week. I’m finally feeling better and felt that I should post here. My Christmas was great and I received some fun gifts this year.
You already saw one of my gifts from my younger brother – this awesome milk glass lamp. He also got me two other milk glass pieces and a gift card for Target. That boy knows his big sister! My nephew got me a wireless mouse for my laptop and my older brother got me speakers for my desktop computer and a gift card. All great gifts!
Here are the fun gifts from my folks: Da Yoopers Glossary (I’m from Michigan’s UP), speakers for my computer (yep, a slight gift overlap but that’s okay), BananaGrams book and some classic Penguin books that I love…
Being up north over the holidays means no after-Christmas sale shopping unless you want to hit up Wal-Mart and K-Mart. ;) So once I made it back to Detroit, I ran to Target to get a gallon of milk and to see what was left of their holiday decor. I did buy some cards for next year ($1.50 for a pack of 16 recycled cards) and some glass bird ornaments ($2 for three).
As for 2011, I don’t make resolutions but I do have a to-do list that is a mile long that I’ll post soon and the two things I really want to work on (other than health-related items) are to balance my checkbook EACH month rather than do six months at a time and to wash the dishes as soon as I’m done with them rather than letting them accumulate in the sink. Have I mentioned how much I hate washing dishes?
