So where are we going? To watch this of course:
I wish I could embed it, but haven't figured that out, for our local news. This is a huge thing around here! It's the equivalent of the Old Man of the Mountain falling down. This is a landmark for anyone who lives in NH or ME, near the coast.
We are also going laptop shopping. I know which one I want to get, I just need to find a store that actually has 2 of the particular model I want. I promised the 16 year old one for his birthday back in November, but had to wait for taxes to come in. I am getting two because the desktop that we use now for both boys is ready to croak on me. I need a computer for Tom to use for school work, so although he isn't 16 for 2 more years, he actually is getting a laptop before then. Laptops for sweet 16?? Yep...my daughter, who loves to write, got one for her 16th, so it's sort of become a tradition.
Yes, it's a little bit of a splurge, but all the bills have been paid out of taxes. The truck, the utilities, rent, etc. I will still have some money tucked away for emergencies. And we make computers last. The desktop that the boys are using now, is almost 10 yrs old. Definitely time for an upgrade, especially since I get 99.9% of our homeschooling stuff online for free. It will also resolve the issue of two kids trying to use one computer.
I also spent a touch of my tax return on myself, that will reap tons of benefits in the future: All American 21 1/2 quart pressure canner.
Amazon has them on sale for over $150 off the normal price right now. I am so excited!!!
Hope you all have a super day!
