Nothing noteworthy last week (we were busy getting ready for a race, so hard to think about shopping when trying to find time to coordinate logistics for a 3 day stage race, take care of 2 kids (sans television) and entertain visitors from Korea (long story). Anyhoo, this week I did buy a few things that fall under the make life better category...I caved and bought these un-paper towels off of esty discovered via Josyln... I've been trying hard to kick the paper towel habit (hard to do with all of the messes those I love create around here) and I think these will help. I also bought Henry some new bibs and bamboo wash cloths - the kid drools all over the place so I am constantly going through bibs & cloths. Onto the good news, I SOLD over 50 items on ebay and my school loans (private university and grad school) are almost paid off! That will be reason to celebrate. Since you know, I am 33 years old and am not using either of my degrees (environmental studies or nonprofit management)! Gulp. Anyway, I've been funneling all extra $$ towards those damn school loans this past year...while at the same time setting $ away for our kids college in the future (while secretly wishing that they have some fabulous idea/invention and won't need to go to college)...Speaking of which do you have any idea how much 4 years of college will cost by the time your kids are 18? You will freak. I did. Okay, so back to the spending hiatus...I'm still doing good. How about y'all?
