A moment of great personal achievement.

I would like to pause and congratulate myself on doing something I've attempted but never been successful at before this weekend:

I, Karla May, went into Super Target without a list, and managed to get out of there spending less than $30.00.

It's not exactly climbing Everest, but it's almost as difficult to accomplish.

OMG, you RULE! I can't get away for less than $50. No matter how hard I try. Even if I just need to buy QTips or something.

Duuuude. I bow down before your superior willpower. I can't get out of there for under $40 no matter how hard I try.

You've got my 'You're the Shit!' award for the week. Maybe, just maybe I could pull that off, but only if I chugged a big bottle of water an hour before, then arrived ten minutes before time to pick up carpool. That way I'd have to spend at least five minutes in the bathroom.

Last night, the smaller boy and I spent over an hour AND A HALF in Super WalMart without a list(I do live in the middle of nowhere and cringe because there is no Target to be found). I spent way too much money and bought pretty much nothing. I think I am just too overwhelmed at "hosting" 25 of Tim's family for a late Christmas party this weekend. Even though they are extremely wonderful and relatively laid back, I can't decide what to cook, what to clean, or where to put them all.

I am always always in for at least 90 bucks. Never fails. Then I come home with, like, two bags of stuff and I'm all like "huh?"
