I am DONE!

with the present buying! My icon says it all - happy dances all around!

I came in right at $100 over my budget - that's only $50/kid; seeings how we bought something I hadn't planned on, I think that's pretty good.

The kids ended up with 3 games apiece - I love GameStop and Entertainmart! Used games at less than half the price! - and a bunch of origami paper (pssssst - if you have origami-loving kids, check out Origami Corner - they have the *best* prices I've found!), along with the other assorted stuffs.

Haven't decided how the DS's will be presented - if I give the games on night 7, they'll know what's coming. If I give the units on night 7, then the games will be a let-down. :pondering: Maybe tell 'em that there's nothing on night 7 and give both on night 8? :fun stuffs!: Oooh......because of "budget cuts", we had to stop at 6! THAT'LL work....:heheheheheheh:

At Entertainmart they had the complete set of Pinky and the Brain DVDs....are you thinking what I'm thinking? Yes - world domination is - wait, no, not that....I'm thinking the kids would enjoy that. I'll see if they still have them next payday. And I'll try to stay away from the $9.99 games........:lol:

Seriously, I'm relieved - I'm done. Oh, I still have to make soaps for the family get-togethers, but I'll be doing that this weekend *anyway*. I've got SG covered - this year the "theme" is Dallas Cowboys (who suck, but he doesn't care....and LTD Commodities has cheap team stuff :shrug:) I told SG I didn't want anything (don't need anything!), so he said he'd take me out to a nice restaurant. I said fine......but yarn/books are good, too. :lol: I have simple tastes....

As you can see, Ms boss didn't come I'm off to do some maintenance to our email accounts. And to celebrate my done-with-present-ness. :grin:
