Shopping, and cleaning...

Why do I look forward to the weekend again?  To relax?  To unwind?  No, to fucking clean and do holiday shopping.  I am using credit in hopes that I will pay it off with the money I am going to make over the holidays.
Why do people always say "Oh, I don't need anything" when they know you are broke.  I fucking hate that.  I gotta buy you something anyway, why not just tell me something that is within my price range rather than have to guess at what to get you, and waste money on something you are going to fucking hate?
I made out golden withe my parents thatnks to 75% off at Bombay company sale, and got a beautiful mantle clock for $50.  My mother loves the Bombay companies shit, so I'm sure she will love it.  I got my brother CJ a fifty dollar playstation card (okay it's lazy, but it is something he will use).  And for the drool boy, I got him one of those easels and chalk board with paints and shit.  My mother will love that one.  He isn't the swiftest with knowing what not to draw on.   But at least with washables (unlike the permanent marker he drew all over himself with the last time I was babysitting, before then sucking the ink dry) at least it will be easier to hide the evidence.
I have no fucking idea of what to get C.  What do you get a technophobic, fashion disaster?  *le sigh*. Well off I go to empty the dishwasher. Lucky along the way I will pass the fridge, and the lovely treat I bought for myself;)

  4. I knew he was a fashion disaster, but also a technophobic! That's hard to shop for ... But I have an idea ... If he likes reading, buy this book which is satire about our society's overusage of technology. He will get a kick out of it. The print version is only $12.99 ( so it should be within your price range) and you can find it on Amazon - here is the link http://www.amazon.com/Life-without-Sara-Marzougui/dp/1470112922/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354674194&sr=8-1&keywords=life+without+it

    See I am making this really easy for you :)

    Hope the treat was worth the cleaning and good luck with the rest of your cleaning and shopping!

  6. Buy him something fashionable! If he can't dress himself, you do it for him ;)

    1. I've learned that he won't wear them. The only time I actually got to dress him was when he tried to get out of going to my cousin's wedding claiming he had nothing to wear. He regretted those words, as I took out the clothes I bought him that he was "saving for something nice". He looked fucking amazing, and as uncomfortable as hell, LOL.
