I am beat, guys. beat. There is just not enough coffee in the world to wake this body up. and it’s not for lack of trying, yo. I’ve tried Caribou, I’ve tried Starbucks, I’ve tried DD, I’ve tried McD’s. I’ve tried lattes and cappuccinos and americanos and coffees. I’ve tried talls and larges and mediums and grandes.Â and now! because I need something else to be stressful in my life (stress LOVES me), this afternoon I get to get on a plane with the kids and go to my mom’s in Milwaukee for Rosh Hashanah allbymyself! and we are not going to talk about the fact that I have to leave my sick puppy until Monday night (I mean, I know he’s in good hands…but he’s still not pooping or drinking 8 days post-surgery and even though everyone says he’s going to be fine, he’s my baby and I really don’t feel good about leaving him)
So, yesterday I found myself doing the children’s clothing store circuit…Old Navy, Target, Gap…desperate to find some Rosh Hashana clothing because all the things I had bought for the kids somehow ended up in our storage facility in Toronto which, ahem, does me little to no good. I ended up building their outfits around their school uniforms…so, if you see three children in synagogue this holiday season wearing a lot of navy and khaki, yes, those are my children.
but, I mean, whatever…they are still going to look ridiculously edible
AND they will get actual, real wear out of the pieces. also, is there really anything more adorable than a girl in knee-his?
so, huzzah! Ali is FRUGAL.
oh, also, while we are talking about being frugal, you will not believe what I did this week.
I COUPON CLIPPED.
I have never used a coupon ever. I don’t even take those online surveys that come attached to Old Navy and Gap receipts to save 10% on your next purchase. (Do you? I always wondered if people really did that, or if they just tossed them frivolously like I do) The husband only snickered laughed his ass off when I asked him when I am supposed to hand my coupons over to the cashier. oh yes, folks, I am awesome.
and while we are on the subject of awesome, can we talk about Glee for a moment?
oh. my. god. Thank you, DVR, for having this show taped for my viewing enjoyment…
and last night? Was there anything better than Josh Groban loves a blousey alcoholic?!?! Josh Groban needs to stop singing and just start making guest appearances – all the damn time – on tv shows.
Now I have to go and find something for ME to wear, because somehow I don’t think my Bayside Tigers t-shirt and yoga pants are going to fly this holiday. and ps. yesterday, TWO different people (a woman working at the Judaica store and a woman I met while picking up Isabella from school) asked me if I was from New York. I totally didn’t get it because I am neither fashionable nor full of accent, but then I realized that they thought I was from Bayside, New York. Apparently, they don’t watch Saved By The Bell in Atlanta…
