Fact of Life: I’ve been a napping fiend this weekend.
Given that I’m one of those militant-types who is up by 7 AM no matter what the day, it’s been a little bit weird. And Linds thought I was faking her out when she called yesterday and I informed her that napping was my activity of choice.
It wasn’t a fake-out, it was just necessary.
I blame it on the registering. After last weekend’s debaucle, we needed to make one last push to take care of some business at Target.
I mean, in contrast to our first experience, we were Peaceful. Organized. Armed With Lists That Made Sense. In Control Of Our Emotional State.
But as a special
bonus surprise, when the Associate gave us the registry gun, they somehow managed to transfer all of the items on Jon and Kelli’s Baby Registry onto our Wedding Registry.
We removed all of the questionable items from our registry as soon as we got home. But not before we received some concerned phone calls from family members wanting to know what, exactly, we were planning to do with 0-3 month-sized onesies.
Marcus yelling SURPRISE! in the background probably didn’t help the situation.
I think they’re expecting a boy.
Or they’re trying to do one of those gender-neutral nurseries. It’s hard to know these days.
Tonight, we made Aloo Gobi.
I barely knew what to do with myself.
The actual dish involved a bit more chopping than some of our other endeavors, and the recipe involved more than a few modifications, but the end result was yet another Dump and Ignore meal.
It also marked the first week where we didn’t bring $10+ of spices home from Cub. So that was pretty much a victory right there. Our grocery budget definitely appreciated the gesture.
Do you believe in napping?
Like I said, Linds thought I was faking her out. I’d say I partake every two months or so.
Do you follow a specific grocery budget?
We generally try to stick to ours pretty closely. I mean, some weeks we’ll be $10-$15 under and others we’ll be over by as much, so it basically balances out with the weeks that we actually “make it.”
