Inci--yay about foodstamps! I finally got to use mine just this evening--omg, it was so nice to let the kids pick whatever cereal they felt like, and i bought myself a coffee creamer in "tiramisu" flavor
I second the food gift idea--bake some cookies, or whatever your specialty is
Candied pecans in a mason jar with a pretty scrap of fabric round the top? Gingerbread? Just throwin' out ideas
So yeah. I just now had the money to pay my car inspection on my van the other day, and was feeling good about that. Well, DH's pizza delivery job had to check out our other car, and wouldn't ya know it, the registration's been expired on that since August!
They never mailed me anything, and I'm really grateful I haven't gotten a ticket in that car yet--but gahhh. There's another $50 I wasn't counting on having to spend.
So, I am kuutzy when pregnant. I break things pretty often, and it's so frustrating. I broke several of our gorgeous drinking glasses over the past few months, which i scored at 75% off from a department store (so of course i can never afford nice ones like these again). Just tonite I dropped a brand-new energy-saver lightbulb and had to spend an hour cleaning my bathroom to make sure we didn't have broken glass everywhere. Far and away the worst of my screw-ups happened the other day, however. My mattress comes apart--like, in pieces. I stupidly thought that the top came off *for washing*--and now I have to pay $600 to replace my mattress casing!
No idea when that'll happen, and in the meantime, i'm scared we're ruining the innards by sleeping on them w/no casing
39 weeks tomorrow. I hope I don't ruin anything else before this baby comes
