The weather in Chicago feels like winter is fast approaching and that partially makes me excited (holidays!) and partially makes me want to build my cave to hibernate for the next 4 months. I REFUSE to wear socks with my shoes or put on any form of winter footwear until there is real snow on the ground, and flurries don’t count. I already busted out my puffy jacket – that’s enough for now.
This might be why I got strep throat this week. Whatever.
I’m going to be a really solid role model for Simon.
Winter weather makes me want to get holiday preparations underway. We took family photos last weekend (whoop!), so now I just need to get on the ball with choosing / ordering cards. I’ve started a list of gift ideas (mainly for me, ha!), and am stalking online sales so that I can avoid the malls from now until after the holidays.
Since I am on my own hunt for deals around the web, I thought that I’d start sharing them. You might as well go get your wallet, I found some good ones… I’ll wait.
First of all, if you’re shopping online, you really should start with eBates. I won’t lecture you about how you can actually make money while shopping online because I’ve already done that here (with directions on how) and here. Just know that it’s legit, I just got a $10 check in the mail this week. $10 makes my overall total close to $200. I mean you’re shopping anyway, right? Free money!
