He sent me beautiful e-flowers, because I told him the day I met him that I hate flowers, because they die fast and they are a waste of money. Jamie even wrote the sweetest note to go along with the e-card, but that is personal & private, and I'll cherish what he wrote for a very long time to come.
Last night I sold some yarn that I had picked up at Value Village - but wanted the other stuff in the bag - not the yarn that I sold. So I listed it on Destash's blog - and sold it. So, I used that money to pick up the latest and greatest new color of Lorna's Laces:
PINK! Oh I heard Pink! This color is called: "Flamingo" and it's a brand new color! I can't wait to knit myself some socks with this color - oh - it's hot hot hot! And very Pink for St-Valentine's Day.
Speaking of Valentine's Day - HAPPY COMMERCIAL HALLMARK HOLIDAY TO ALL! (I'm not a huge fan of this holiday). Jamie and I did have a romantic home cooked meal last night, and again tonight. Last night he made me stir fry, which is my fave meal he makes, and we accompanied it with some red wine. Tonight we had shrimp cocktail and Tilapia fish with rice, accompanied by some white wine. So we had a nice dinner two nights in a row, to spoil ourselves, but not necessarily for V-day.
I did get Jamie some little gifts. I got him some much needed dress socks by George (from Walmart), and some chocolates and candies. I got Jamie this above "Easy Button" as well. When you press it - it says "That was Easy". It's kinda funny, and I got it for Jamie to press every time he completes a chore - he can after then say "Boy, that was easy" LOL! I'm just kidding - I thought it was funny. And...
When you purchase the Staples Easy Button, you’re making dreams come true for individuals with intellectual disabilities. STAPLES Business Depot is proud to donate a portion from the sale of this product, up to $100,000.00, to SPECIAL OLYMPICS CANADA.
Well then - I feel better about purchasing this silly item!
This afternoon I spent it doing errands with my mother - shopping at Old Navy, and Gap Kids - all stuff for Sean of course. (Nothing is for me anymore - lol - unless it's yarn or books! LOL). After the fun clothing shops, the next stop was Costco. I had a full list of things I needed from there, and I don't have a membership, so I went with my mom - who does! (I feel there is no need to spend 50$ on a membership, when I only go like twice a year, and when I need a thing here or there, both my parents go on a regular basis, as well as Jamie's dad & step-mom - so I can always get something - if need be). Today, I have successfully changed Sean's diaper and fed him a bottle in the middle of Costco. Apparently, there is a nursery in the store, but it's *ONLY* for breastfeeding mothers. How discriminatory!
While at Walmart today, I found a can (like circled above) of Good Start by Nestle - which is regular priced at $28.97 at Walmart. This was actually a gift pack with a free stroller toy. It was on liquidation for $10, and then I had a $2 rebate coupon for any Good Start formula in my wallet. My first reaction was "why is this so cheap - is it expired?" But no - it wasn't expired, it is actually good until December 2007! (Sean would go through this can in about 2 weeks or less). So I got the can of formula for 8$ and a free toy. A value of 28.97 JUST for the formula - wow! I'm still shocked on how cheap it was!
I've been dying to purchase Passe-Partout on DVD. It's a show that I grew up on. I loved it. It was a french show, that was on at dinner time, I believe. Anyhow, the first 25 episodes are on DVD now. I was going to buy it at Costco today for 39.99$ but I checked first to see if it was on amazon.ca and it is. So, for 39.96$ (not that .04 cents makes a difference, but I get free shipping for orders over 39$ and also - airmiles. So that was my reasoning behind not buying it at Costco - and I can't wait to get it in the mail, and even though it's a kid's show - which Sean will one day enjoy - (I hope!) but I can reminisce with the past, and enjoy it too!
I am no longer engorged, and so far I haven't been leaking in a while. It's been 2 days since I last pumped something (very little actually) for Sean, and we're doing a-0kay on formula. Hey - I myself am a formula baby - was never breastfed. And look - I'm doing alright! Crossing my fingers that I will not need Sage tea. Can't really find it anyhow, it's not something my local grocery store has... Oh well.
Sean wishes everyone a Happy Valentine's Day - isn't he just adorable in his Old Navy outfit that he got recently as a gift? He is just too cute in it! Too darn cute for his own good!
