I started my Christmas shopping today. Oops, I lied. Last week I bought Kazi's new bed and yes, it's still in its boxes. Tidier that way. I bought a gift for each of us today and I'm quite tickled about it - they may help me keep the heat down a degree or two over the winter! But I can't tell because a certain someone might read this and then there would be no surprise when gifts are unwrapped Christmas morning. And yes, I DO buy Christmas gifts for myself. I picked up that little tradition from my mother whose husband, my dear ol' dad, didn't usually select anything that tickled her fancy. Who knows better what you want than yourself? Yeah, you got it, first try! She would wrap them also and mark the tag "To Edith with love, Edith." She knew all about loving yourself first! My mother, she was way ahead of her time!
After 2 1/2 weeks of November, which is going by in a flash I might add, debt repayment is still King, or in my case, Queen. Oh no, I just realized that I haven't input my most recent debt payment or savings entries - I just got paid yesterday and made a bunch of transfers. Oh well, I'm not going to do it tonight. My bicycle awaits! And I just had 3 squares of chocolate because as Mark pointed out I need my energy when I'm cycling:) You're just the best pal a girl could have Mark!
I'm having a wee bit of trouble typing this. A crumb of something must have fallen under my "i" and "k" key so I'm having an annoying time having to tap those keys several times :( Lesson: don't eat dinner while catching up on blog post reading - your quinoa may end up in places it shouldn't!
