Friday, Wal-mart and Valentines eve....

     Just a bit of advice for those of you who need to go to Wal-mart the night before a holiday.  DON'T.

Good Grief!  After teaching last night I needed to go pay the house payment and the studio loan.  The only CU access was Wal-mart.  We also needed milk and a few other things.  It took Hubs and I over an hour to negotiate the crowds.  Mad, crazy people and their children dashing around trying to get valentines.  What a mess.  I mean I really thought "They let these people breed?"  I know that is not very nice, but it was a zoo.  We try not to go to Wal-mart on the 1st because of the long lines of government food stamps users.  I am not trying to be snotty it is just that the lines are long and I can't stand the food they buy. I am a food snob.  Okay I will be honest it does kind of bother me, although I have used food stamps before when Hubs was out of work in our earlier years.  I just did not buy frozen pizza and pizza rolls.

     Hubs gave me my first box of chocolates last night and I will get another box this evening.  A box for each hip so I am not lop sided. We are not big into Valentines day, I think it is a lot of hype. I had a child on the 11th, my Aunt's birthday is on the 12th, then I had one on the 13th and I had one pass on the 13th, then my grandson was born on the 15th so we have  a lot of celebrating to do and Valentines day just gets caught up and lost.

     Tell me honestly those stuffed animals they have for Valentines and Easter,what do you do with them afterwards?  I found myself eventually throwing them away.  I remember B the youngest was in ICU over Valentines day, her doctor brought her in a huge bear, I mean huge every day for three days!  She had a white one, a black one and a pink one.  They took up more room than the hospital bed.  The nurses were always fighting their way around a huge stuffed bear.  We finally donated those to a shelter.  But really do we need to spend our money on this kind of thing? 

     I purchased my to younger girls some boot stuffers.  They wear those UGG boots that get so wet and the stuffers were on sale for $4.00 a pair after Christmas.  Hubs gets them a small box of chocolates.  They are happy and it is something they can use.  I purchased a pair of Grizzly pj pants for hubs at his Alma mater book store after Christmas for $6.00.  Valentines done.  No huge outlay of money.  I will take my older neighbors and friends some homemade short bread, I think people would rather have something you made personally for them, than buy a box of chocolates.

     Even St Patrick's day is getting out of line, anything a merchant can make money on is fair game.  I just choose not to buy into it. Easter is April 20th and the candy is already out.  So we will have to look and be tempted by that for 2 months.  I can admit this because I heard that Jane ate an entire bag of those Hershey's hard crack eggs.  She pretended to buy them for her daughter, but instead she snuck (snuck is not really a word) them into bed and devoured the whole bag. This is something I would never ever do.  It gets chocolate on the sheets and it is just easier to eat them in the parking lot on the way home, then throw the evidence into the trash can before you get into the house.

     I must go check on my short bread and do a quick run through the house before I start to sew today.

Have a great and productive day and Happy buy yourself chocolate day!



  1. I'm totally with you. I've eaten an entire bag of candy before I got home. I have a sweet tooth so I can't even buy it unless I want to gain some serious weight. Happy Valentines Day, Kim.

  2. Happy Valentine's, my friend! Our day is pretty quiet today too. We have a ward party with some restaurant food catered to us (first one for me :), so I'm not even cooking :)

  3. I totally open the bag of chocolate in the car before I even get out of the parking lot. I thought that was normal? You mean people wait until they get home and share???
