Ended up going to Goodwill like I said I would.
I spent about $4.30, but I’ll have to check my receipt later for the exact price.
I got myself:
- 3 skirts
- 1 tshirt
- a pair of shorts
- skein of yarn and other yarn scraps
- tapestry yarns (which I won’t use, so they’ll go towards the giveaway that I’m doing SOON!)
I got my daughter:
- 2 skirts
- 2 pairs of shorts
- 1 dress
- 1 shirt
- 1 jacket
So, overall I believe it was a good haul. I’ll be posting pictures either tonight or tomorrow morning!
I need to clean.
My chunkin munkin made an absolute mess this morning. Her daddy just picked her up though, so I can clean it all up but am unmotivated to do so.
I need to get up though because I need to go shopping. I’m dying to buy a new dress, and I need to hit up some craft stores. My cousin’s girlfriend asked me to make a tutu skirt and matching headband for her niece’s first birthday, so I need to shop around and check out tulle prices.
Food & Shopping.
My dad orders pizza about twice a month and he always gets either the really cheap stuff or the stuff that tastes like they just dipped it in a container of garlic. I eat it without complaining, but he knows I don’t really like it. Well, I guess last night he got a little extra money, and his amazing memory reminded him that my favorite pizza is Papa Johns with pepperoni and banana peppers. So, that’s what he bought. Thing is, I texted my sister around 8pm to say that I wasn’t coming home. I got home about an hour ago and he was like, “I ordered your favorite pizza last night. There’s still some in the fridge if you want it.”
I feel bad that I didn’t even bother to say I wasn’t coming home before I left yesterday, and now I feel even worse because I’m leaving again tonight. He already knows that though.
In other news, I bought yarn yesterday. Michaels was having a sell on Loops & Threads Impeccable. They had it 2 for $5, so I picked up six skeins of it. Two each of Amethyst, Lavender, and White. I’m debating on making my daughter a little throw for her birthday. If I do, I only have about two weeks to do so, so I need my ass kicked into gear.
I also stopped by Kmart and picked up a few things today. Got this cute, little dress for my daughter for $6, and then shorts, a skirt, and a shirt for $5 each. I’ll probably finish the rest of her birthday shopping there next week.
I guess I’m going to start crocheting before I leave for the night.
I want to knit a sweater.
And not really the thick, warm, fuzzy, well-fitting kind of sweater.
I want something soft, baggy, thin yarn, huge needles.
I’m not the girly type, but I want pink and white stripes.
I knit and crochet non-stop, all the time, but I never really make anything for myself. Now that I have a little bit of money, I’d like to make this for myself.
I’m not normally good at sticking to big projects, but I have a lot of little things that I need to get done as well, so I figure I’ll just work on a little bit at a time and go back and forth.
Now if only I could find a pattern that I really like.
