Both of my kids received money and gift cards for Christmas. Today, we went shopping! I did determine almost immediately that if this happens again next year, we're going to make two shopping days out of it. My son does NOT like shopping for clothes or jewelry or any other girly stuff. While I'm okay with that, it certainly made for an unpleasant start of the trip. After he got to do some toy shopping, his attitude improved significantly. Thank goodness!
Both kids made good purchases. They had made a list of what they wanted and mostly stuck to the list. We went to lunch at Carl's Jr and I did OK. I had a Famous Star burger and fries. Spent a little extra time in the gym this morning and had light dinner, so mostly stayed in my calories for today. Mostly.
Scheduled for tomorrow is taking down the Christmas tree and lights from outside, sanding the wall in prep for painting and "texturing" it. All this after going to the gym. I think it might be a little ambitious to get all of that done, but I'm going to try. I'll let you know how it goes!
