I've been a bad, bad girl...

First off, my gram is home and doing just fine. They increased her blood thinner a smidge and put a screen in so the clot can't go anywhere.

Now, back to the bad girl stuff.

Money is tight. Housing sitch is up in the air. But I had a 20% off coupon for the Coach outlet!!! What the hell was I supposed to do?

Of course I went shopping. Like you didn't see that coming. I had every intention of just buying a wallet or wristlet, maybe even a card case. But then I saw it, or maybe it saw me first, because this baby

was calling my name. Isn't she lovely? I walked all the way around, looked at everything, but I could not resist this bag. Then I did the math. The original retail price was $298. It was marked down to $210. It was then on sale for 50% off, bringing it down to $105. I had a 20% off coupon on top of that. The grand total came to $89 and change. It was meant to be.

excuses, excuses

Hi, remember me? Should I even bother to apologize for being a sucky blogger? Nah, let's just move on.

September was chaotic here in the Shoup-Thornell household. A few days after my last post, I tripped over one of Joey's toys and end up in the ER with a torn ligament in my right foot. That was fun. I was in a splint and on crutches for a few weeks. I hobbled my way through planning and throwing Joey's 2nd birthday party. That's right, my baby is 2!!!

October is shaping up to be super busy. I don't have a free day in the next 2 weeks! Ok, some of those are planned shopping excursions, but still. I'm a busy girl. I like it though. It keeps my mind occupied and gives me less time to stress.

Saturday, I'm doing the Light the Night walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Here's the link to donate a few dollars if you're so inclined.

Any help is appreciated.

Hell. Just got a phone call that my grandmother's in the hospital with a blood clot in her leg. She's really in poor health to begin with. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
