Today is Boxing Day. I am not sure why they call it Boxing day, but we have plenty of boxes in our house. Meanwhile, it’s apparently Valentine’s Day at Target. Yes, I went to Target this afternoon. I’m not sure what exactly possessed me to do that. We needed AA batteries, but I could have acquired those just about anywhere, no need to go to Target where I would be tempted by gift-wrap at 50% off.
But I did go, and I did buy a roll of wrapping paper. I swear I have some kind of disease. I wonder if there is a program for compulsive gift-wrap purchasing. It’s a big roll too, so you can be sure that I will be cursing it mightily in 2010.
I bought myself a few other Christmas things too. Some silver ball ornaments to go on my wicked new black Christmas tree, (yes I said black, It is so cool) some half price Christmas candy, a Christmas t-shirt and new earphones for my Ipod. I deserved all of it. Tom can consider it restitution for throwing out my Speedway Methodist Church parking pass.
I was in my car today for the first time since that horrible crime. It felt so unlucky. And I discovered he also threw away my Pirates of the Caribbean/Orlando Bloom keychain. Also lucky. Clearly I am going to need some time to grieve.
