Calvin: Faces

Whirlwind week....

Wow. Let's see......

Yesterday was the Company Chrismess lunch. Good food, nice bonus (same as last year - Praise God for it!) good conversation. Cyn and I took Mrs. Boss there and home; I found a local-to-her branch of my bank and Cyn ran me to it. My bonus check got in 1 minute before the cut-off (again, Praise God!); we ran to her bank then I headed home. Didn't get home until almost 4:30 - and I left the house at 9:45! :whew:

Today I spent most of my bonus.....the kids really needed to update their tablets. :big sigh: Even going with refurbished models, they ain't cheap! Fortunately, I'll get some of the cost back when I send in their old ones....but *still*. I need to update mine as well, but it'll have to wait (even with the rebates, I'm still out-of-pocket more than I wanted to be. Still....this is the LAST time I'm planning on upgrading their tablets, so....and I'll get a little more back for my iPad 2 when I trade it in, so.....).

Today was also my usual work day - the kids went with me. Mrs. Boss and Cyn had both given them $$, and they wanted to spend it. :lol: We went to the mall; Himself hit the Lego store and had a blast trying to decide exactly what he wanted to spend his $$ on. Herself got more, and spent less - we hit Puzzle Zoo, JoAnn's and GameStop for her. Me? I bought 3 skeins of luxury fingering-weight yarn. :lol: I have 2 pairs of mitts and 1 pair of socks to look forward to.

There's a lot more stuff I wanted to do,'s nothing we *needed*, so it's all good.

Tomorrow's a "normal" day...then Thursday...oh, Thursday. SG is home, but we won't be. He opted out of our trip to Granny's....we'll be gone most of the day, shopping with her. :sigh:

It doesn't sound like much, but I HATE leaving the house. I HATE dealing with crowds....this is 3 days worth this week. Next week we have to go back to the mall to pick up the new tablets (IF they come in...I opted in-store pick-up instead of having them shipped to the house. I felt like it was safer that way). At least the kids are happy! :lol:

I need to knit a bit to take the edge off. Laters!
