Yes, I Can.

March 7th, 2012 at 07:55 pm

Yes, I can make it to spring break in eight days.
I wish my break held lots of fun like it did in the days when DH and I were dating and I flew to London for the week. These days if I can get lunch out with a girlfriend, it's a triumph.

I'd really like to go somewhere for break, but I'm halfheartedly committed to saving everything I can for new paint on the house trim, new windows, and new bathroom tile. But really, I'd rather go to London.

But there is good financial news. Our mortgage continues to shrink although I've stopped major prepayments when we worried about DH's job.

I resisted buying lace-up boots as suggested for DD's "Pioneer Days" simulation, but this afternoon while she was at dance class, I zipped over to Target. I figured they'd have nothing but sandals and spring shoes, and I was almost right. There, staring right up at me from the clearance rack was one pair of girl's lace-up boots reduced from $25 to (yeah) $7.28. In her size! It made my day--not too tough since the rest of the day was spent grading papers and prepping my online class.

Eight days, baby.

    I wish I had a spring break coming!

    Years ago I was in a play -- "A Christmas Carol" -- and I bought a pair of lace-up boots, thinking it was a frivolous expense. I wore them for years -- wore them out!

    When Target is selling kids' shoes on sale, it can really offer some excellent bargains. I got my daughter a couple of pairs of boots for less than $5 each, and they are now getting handed down to her sister (or a friend's child... whichever kids grows into them first, I suppose). It's nice to have some insurance of decent shoes at cheap prices. That isn't the case over here, they charge an arm and a leg for really crappy shoes and it makes me miss Target all the more.
