Where there’s a will there’s a layaway….

 My husband informed me that since his older brother was going to visit their Father every spring, that he was going to, too. (competitive is his middle name) He wasn’t interested until he found out that his older brother has been going every spring for the past 3 or so years.
 
I did some checking. A ticket to Springfield, MO, is 454.00, sooo I started thinking…
 
There is this gorgeous (what I call, French Country, style) china cupboard at the Antique store. He tells me, you can take a trip or buy the cupboard…. decisions, decisions… but, if you know me at all, you know I’ll always take the trip.
 
I’m not going to tell you where I’m going. I’ll post pictures and have you guess. Shouldn’t be too hard. My ticket was just about the same price as his is, and I think my destination is much better.
 
Now, about that china cupboard,… I put it on layaway… shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
 
 
OH, I bought the cats some, catnip yesterday,….
CATNIP- 1.89
 
COST TO REPLACE BROKEN DVD PLAYER, KNOCKED OFF THE SHELF- 60.00
 
COST TO REPLACE BROKEN VASE AND ASSORTED NICKNACKS- 20.00
 
REPOTTING SEVERAL PLANTS THAT WERE TORN FROM THEIR POTS- MY TIME
 
FUN MY DAUGHTER GETS FROM GETTING THE CATS HIGH, AND WATCHING THEM GO CRAZY- PRICELESS (FOR HER ANYWAY)! ARE WE HAVING FUN YET???
 
How’s your day been? BIG HUGS, Steph

    LOL!  My mom used to buy stuff and then hide it for awhile, and then after she brought it out and my dad would finally notice it she\’d say "that?!  we\’ve had the for awhile, you\’ve just never noticed it."  and then he\’d shut up feeling guilty!🙂

    Cost for having the cats put to sleep?  Priceless.  No, just a dream, I guess.  It is nice, anyway, to see that you got both of the things you want.  My favorite aspect of every marriage is \’subterfuge\’.  Don\’t start a home without it!

    Cats on catnips s always fun.  I don\’t it often but each time I give some catnips to my cat….it\’s always really funny.  Not breaking vases or knocking DVD off the shelf kinda funny….but its still funny.  :)  Take it easy!
