‘Twas 4 days before Christmas and all through the house not a gift was purchased…no not one…nothing even wrapped. Was I in a panic…no, not me…no mall trip to navigate no whoa is me! I jumped in the Sonata and drove down the street, parked and got out and entered the big “V”…oh I mean the “W” Walgreens.
Long gone are the days of Santa and toys, I now have mini-men, they are no longer little boys. Safety and Life Skills are things that they need, a job application and gas money will be under the tree! ‘Tis the season for a few little gifts so they’ll have something to unwrap when they finally roll out of bed….after 12 noon if that!
A Polaroid Tablet for Son #1, he can take notes in class, read a book or just have fun.
Wrestling, lifting, or just watching TV…they definitely both needed one of these!
Son #2 is up texting all night so he needs help in getting up and a Bluetooth for no talking while driving (I know it didn’t rhyme this time).
What to get hubby…oh boy…what does he need…nothing really, except maybe me! Can’t go wrong with a gift card…one or maybe two and with Walgreen’s big selection that wasn’t too hard to do.
Food and drinks and a trip to Lowe’s will fit the bill, added a little Dove Body Wash and all is chill.
Last minute gifts are sure to be found and if you need any assistance just look around, or maybe someone will greet you as soon as you walk in the door.
I am so glad to finally be done, no stress…no hassle…actually it was kinda fun!
Now it’s time to head home and wrap up these gifts and place them neatly under our beautifully decorated tree!
If you have any last minute gift buying to do head over to your local Walgreens as most stores are open until midnight.
Hello Friends, we have a new addition to the family!
On Wednesday, we welcomed a new little bundle to the family, it’s name is Spark, Chevy Spark. When Tayair pulled up the driveway I almost cried, it was the cutest little car I’ve ever seen. Not quite as small as a “Smart Car” but just as cute and compact as the Volkswagen Beetle was back in the ’30’s.
The 2002 Hyundai Elantra that Malik was driving began acting up, even after a replaced engine, the brakes and rods began to go and it just nickeled and dimed us so it was time to get rid of it, we will donate it to Goodwill. We decided to hand down the 2005 Honda that was purchased in April and then get Tayair a new vehicle. My husband had visited Diver Chevrolet last week and thought the Spark would be the perfect car for him, one that would get him from Point A to Point B and would last for many, many, many years!
Not having purchased a new vehicle since 2005, it was amazing to see all the bells and whistles in this basic car. I thought my friend’s Mercedes was loaded with amazing features but this little Spark was also equipped with some awesome controls, including Sirius XM Radio, Bluetooth, 9 airbags, USB outlet, touchscreen infotainment system, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and an emergency communication system (OnStar 6-month free trial).
I didn’t realize it was a 4-door, and squealed with delight when he opened the back doors, so cute and surprisingly comfortable with ample leg and head room.
The trunk was a bit too small for me and there isn’t a spare tire, instead an air compressor and a can of “fix it flat”, but with OnStar just a push of a button will get you emergency service.
This vehicle will be in the family for a long time to come and I can honestly say that it’s a welcomed addition even with the car payments!
Linking up with today with Tough Cookie Mommy – hop over and join the fun!
