Toasty Warm

Due to our smart purchase at Target this afternoon…


…I’m so nice and warm up in the office tonight 🙂  Which is good since it is 36 degrees out and feels like 29 degrees!

We bought a 2-pack of these cute little heaters.  For only $30!  One for me, one for Kimm.  So the electric bill may be going up (hopefully only slightly), but at least we won’t freeze in the office this winter.

We’ve decided to forego getting heat on the second floor this year, mostly due to finances.   You know how some people are filthy rich, well, we’re filthy poor!  Seriously though, we aren’t that bad off.  I mean, we can pay our mortgage, pay our bills, pay our credit cards (while still attempting to whittle away at them all), and put food on our table.  There are plenty of people I’m sure who struggle more than we do.  I just have to remember that when I’m at the store and want to buy everything in sight!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…Target is DANGEROUS!  We always find stuff we want to have.  For now, we focus on “needs,” and the “wants” go on the Christmas list.

However, besides all of the hygiene stuff and cold medicine we bought, I spent some of my discretionary money this month on a new scarf!  I’m wicked excited.  It was only $12.99 and I love it.  So soft, and the color is unlike anything I have.  Can’t wait to wear it to work tomorrow.  I also picked up some of those stretchy hand gloves–2 pairs for $1.50–can’t go wrong with that.  Of course the scarf had no matching gloves/mittens.  I have to say that mittens/gloves are REALLY hard to find.  Maybe I’m just really picky.



Kimm is watching the first Montreal hockey game of the season and I am searching out a recipe for brownies to bring to work tomorrow.  It is a co-worker’s birthday so we’re all bringing in food.  I’m trying to use stuff that I have here so I found a box of deluxe brownie mix that Kimm’s mom gave us (it has mini-chocolate chunks in it!).  So I thought I’d make some kind of Rocky Road brownie because I also have some walnuts and some Marshmallow Fluff.   Sounds like a good combination right?

Not much else going on here today.  Izzy got her two walks today.  She did MUCH better.  I just kept her on a short leash the whole time and let her smell the ground a few times during the walk.  It was cold walking!  I did a load of laundry.  I took a shower.

See, I told you it was pretty boring.  Of course I have lots more I COULD do.  I just have no ambition for it!

Three nights on starting tomorrow.  Hopefully it won’t be bad.  At least it’s the weekend and that means no administration in the morning until Monday!  And I’m back on my weekend so I can’t wait to see everyone.

Stay warm (and dry–it’s supposed to rain for the next few days).

Getting into the Christmas spirit early…


Hot chocolate!


Looking all innocent!


About to fall off the couch!
