1. Don't go grocery shopping when you're hungry.
2. Make a list before you go and don't buy anything that isn't on the list.
3. Make a monthly budget and stay within it.
I shop when I'm starving, I make lists and leave them at home. I drive by a shop and say, "Ooooh, let's go in there!"
This may explain how it is that I stopped at Walmart today to exchange some socks I had bought for my son, and came home with this:
They were not on my list. But aren't they cute?
They are 8 weeks old, brother and sister from the same litter.
When the kids came home from school, they thought they'd died and gone to heaven.
I tried and tried and tried to take a good picture, but the only time they stopped moving was when they fell asleep here, with a lot of sunlight in the background.
This guy's definitely a breast man.
They are sitting on me right now, as I blog.
The kids have been asking for a cat forever. I've been telling them for the last year that we would get two kitties after we moved house (which I've thought for the last year was imminent). Because it doesn't make sense to get a pet before making an overseas move, right?
So, take it from me. When it comes to shopping, don't take it from me.
They need names. What should we name them??
