How did everyone do on Prime Day? I found a few things- nothing I couldn’t live without, but I grabbed a few fun Christmas gifts for the kiddo and some hot chocolate k-cups that I in no way needed, but I thought they’d be fun. We got the Amazon Wish Book in the mail recently and my daughter has taken a lot of joy in marking what she wants (everything) then going back and hearting the things she really wants (almost everything). I have to admit, it’s been a lot of fun for me to look up items, decide what I think is worth the price (ie she will play with enough to justify the money) and compiling it all on her Amazon wishlist for family members to browse.
I’m least looking forward to shopping for my husband. Usually we go pretty light on gifts and try to spend our money on future experiences, but it’s been so long since we’ve had somewhere to go that this year I think I want to just splurge on some THING. I don’t know what the THING is yet though. Come on brain, you know I like to be done shopping before Black Friday. Help a girl out.
I’m throwing myself into Christmas planning because our Halloween is already figured out. Our jack o lanterns are carved, the menu for the big night is set and I’ve already planned what silly backyard “booths” we’re going to set up so that she can trick or treat around our backyard. We did do Boo in the Zoo this year for the first time, so she got to do traditional trick or treating in a crowd-controlled setting and we had a great time! I was so nervous that it was going to be over sold, but everyone was so respectful of social distancing guidelines and the mask rule.
I took a break from doing craft orders for a little while to make some projects I wanted to work on, but with my earnings slowing down a bit I’ve opened orders back up to get a little cash infusion into my fund.
I should have a really exciting earnings report next week to share with you! I was hopeful maybe I’d get the payout in time to tell you about it this week, but alas- good things come to those who wait!
