What the kids plan to buy with the Wal-Mart gift cards sent from Aunt the Major for Christmas: Wii games, digital cameras, camping gear,...
What I bought with my gift card: Ricola, Benadryl, a shower curtain (navy blue - very nice!), half-priced Christmas cards, dog food, the Twilight soundtrack (which was shortly thereafter confiscated by Butterfly) and 24 ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER. Woo-Hoo.
For an entire week I don't have to hear the following phrases:
"I need a cough drop."
and (my personal favorite)
"WE'RE OUT OF TOILET PAPER!"
And if they decide to yell about something else, I'm cranking the music up.
A week of bliss...it's the ultimate Christmas gift.
Thanks, Aunt the Major. You rock!
