A moment of weakness.

Turns out I cannot be trusted not to find a way to shop when left to my own bleary eyed devices. That's right, not even a week into the Buy No Crap Challenge, and I have broken down and made a purchase. Sigh. You see, everyone was asleep, except me and Cameron (we didn't go to bed until 7am). I think it was at about 6am, I was feeling super tired, and not quite of sound mind. I remembered I needed to order a book for Scott for Father's Day (yes, I know, I'm a little late with that). I went to the checkout page and there it was - the Free Shipping Offer. I caved like a rented mule. The good news is the damage is minimal - I only bought a $10 Farzzle's World DVD and a book for myself. Seemed only fair, if Scott and Max were getting gifts, I should get something too! I bought "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" because Jennifer suggested it as reading, and I'm a sucker for any book she suggests to me. I think I'll read it for her as part of her upcoming birthday present.

On a positive note, Night #3 of the Big Boy Bed Challenge went well. Max stayed in his bed and did not fall out. We smartened up and put pillows at the end of his bed which seemed to keep him from scooting down to the bottom of his bed in his sleep. He still prefers to keep his feet at the head of his bed, but who am I to judge? Now if I could just get Cameron to tone down the partying, maybe I won't be such a risk for further drive by shopping in the middle of the night.


  1. Well, it could be worse. One slip up doesn't mean you're done. You'll be fine!

    And it's a great book!


  2. That's what I keep telling myself...that a book cannot be considered junk. Unless it is one of those supermarket books they sell at the cash register ;-)
