compulsive shopper

last week b bought a dvd player for the tv in our front room. his rationalization, while giving him a the look, was ' the playstation doesn't play movies anymore! and i don't want the kids watching movies in my room anymore. '

so the dvd player sat in the box for about a week while he went to utah. the day he came back i decided to hook it up myself. so i pulled that GINORMOUS tv out and in doing so the cable cord ripped some piece out of the tv. ooopps! so now we can watch movies but no tv! anyway i thought this was the least of my worries.

b came home and saw it and i guess thought it needed to be fixed ASAP because last night when he pulled into the driveway, k saw him unload a NEW tv from his truck! i was...not surprized...but dumbfounded. i marched outside as he was trying to hide it in the garage...and k said 'i already told mom you bought a new tv!' he replied, 'k, you have a big mouth!' to which i replied, 'you are out of control!!!!!!!!!!!!' he just smiled at me and gave me a hug and told me he loved me. and i am taking away his costco card!

there will be no christmas for b because what else does he need or want? he buys whatever he wants whenever he wants it. he is a compulsive shopper! i thought only women were like that. boy was i wrong.

I am just sitting here laughing! When BJ bought our new tv I had to sit in the backseat with it so it didn't tip or slide or move while driving home, but when we brought any of our 3 kids home he didn't care where I sat!

Too funny! Sounds exactly like what Miles would do in that situation. We went to my friends house for a little get together and she gave the girls a tour of her house. We looked at decoration and colors. Her husband did the guy tour and they looked at surround sound, pool tables and their fishing boats. It was funny to listen to all the guys talking about the toys and us talking about colors of paint.

That's too funny because Cody is the same way. But if I were to do something like that I would have to answer to him big time! Men.

I guess I am lucky cause my husband hardly ever spends money!! He still has his b-day money from my parents and that was in April!!!I Have to remind him to spend it!!!

I love the picture of the scarf on your head! Your kids are beautiful! That's funny, Matthew wants us to ask each other whenever we want to buy something big.

What..is that like the dream shirt that "Clark" is wearing? *SIGH* What do you think of supergirl (the cousin)? Staci- I haven't talked to you in awhile. I'll try to get ahold of you sometime this week (yes, you've been given fair warning--better pick up your phone) :)

p.s. how cute are you in that camo scarf?
