So, as you know, we leave for our house boat trip soon, and there is much to be done before we leave. The first three days of this week are going to be crazy in our house, because Joel is working like a mad man getting ready for his upcoming Fourth of July event, and because I--for some strange reason--scheduled myself to be crazy-busy with work as well. In this time, someone is going to have to shop for the things we need for the trip, do all of our laundry, clean our house, have a few staple groceries bought for when we come back exhausted, pack us up, and load our car. Who, you ponder, might be expected do to all this? Why, me, of course.
When I woke up yesterday, with all my huge To Do list staring in the face, I did what most normal people would do--lie in bed until I could no longer justify an extra minute of rest, then get up and wander aimlessly around the house, unaware of where to start. No one kicks my ass into gear quite like my good friend, Destiny, so I called her into action. She--as always--was ready at moment's notice to head to Owensboro for a joint office day to help me get some things done (and I may or may not have lured her here with the promise of a shopping trip when we were finished).
There are few things I love more in this world than bargain shopping, and your life would be way less exciting if I didn't share with you the amazing bargains I got yesterday. So here's what was purchased: (I'm excluding the Target stop. Who cares about sunscreen and boxed wine? Yes, Eville's Target sells boxed wine!!)
For Joel: 8 shirts, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair swim trunks
This would have totaled $775. Because of my bargain abilities, it actually cost: $275. AND I got $80 worth of "cash" to spend at Old Navy and Express when we get home. Yes, friends, I'm shocked and amazed at myself too. And, yes, I will go shopping with you anytime!

|Me and Dee|
See? Amazing, right? If it makes you feel better, it's not all rainbows and butterflies. I didn't sleep a wink and have a huge day of work ahead of me... Unless, of course, I can convince Destiny to come back and go on a Coozie hunt with me!!
