I was able to take advantage of the five dollars coupon that I was sent by Kmart when I stopped by in there yesterday from our trip to Wausau. I shopped by myself at the Clearance section, while I left my companions at the nearby McDonald’s. It was a perfect chance for me to be alone and when I got home, I was content with my finds:
First of all, the husband congratulated me for being firm with my decision and goal to stay away from impulsively spending. Yep, I am, because we are aiming to keep our credit rating unchanged from now until we can get our new house. It is hard, I tell you, especially that these days, clearance ads are arriving in my inboxes like crazy! LOL. However, I am proud of myself as well from staying off. Not today though, because Kmart’s deals are too good to say pass to so yeah, I gave my self some love, some good therapy that is!
How’s your shopping impulses lately, friends?

One of the things that I love about December holidays is the abundance of musical concerts. Last December, many of my friends in different States have informed me of their participation in a school or church concert and oh how they wished I could attend the event but my distance just didn’t permit me to. I was treated to live recordings though via video and I have truly enjoyed every single bit of the shows that were sent to me . One particular concert that I found to be so awesome was a percussion concert where a lot of marimbas were played. I saw a marimba from musicians friend and I am imagining myself to be playing one but that’s just until there– imagining.
Since I am already too old to learn how to play it, I will just encourage my daughters to it. If they will express some interest– good. If not, I can’t force them. I am just thankful that even with my distance, my friends who are into concerts are always sweet and thoughtful enough to save me a portion of their live performances via tapes or videos. Surely, technology have gone a long, long way!
