What to do today??

I have today off from work which is a blessing and a curse. Free day to play but UNPAID. I really am torn about what to do today. I want to scrap some more and I want to spend quality time with my DS but I also have those darn 50% off coupons burning a hole in my purse. I won't go into the whole "50% off sale" again, you can scroll down to see what I said on the subject before. I really have more than enough stuff for 5 lifetimes. Why do I feel the pull to drive 45 minutes to Lakeland to the C & S store so I can spend more money, even if it would be 50% less than I would normally??

Ok, you've talked me out of it. I'm going to stay here & spend the day with my son. He has those RC items we can play with and I can get some great pictures that I can use to scrap later.

Oh, if I do that then I'll need stuff to put on my pages. I may not have the perfect embellishment. Maybe I should go get something that would work.
LOL**WINK- WINK** Had ya going didn't I? I'm just kidding about going shopping. Besides, I already have that great Jolees "Control Freak" embellishment I can use. I'll just have to make sure he plays on his video game today. Yeah, like that isn't gonna happen.

Just so you don't think I am a complete "socially unconscious" person, I want to take a moment to recognize why we have today off. Thank you Dr. King for what you started. I'm sorry that, so many years later, we still sometimes seem like we haven't gotten any further at all. We promise to keep trying.

I'm glad we were able to talk you out of spending that extra money today since you aren't getting paid for the day. Good control you have! I'm sure you and your son will enjoy the day. It is beautiful!

Cheryl, I love the last paragraph you wrote. Perfectly said.

So true about Dr. King's work. I still remember when the announcement was made of his assassination--we were at school and my class cheered. I cried. :-( We're farther along than we used to be, but nowhere close to fulfilling his dream yet.

How did the day go with your youngun today, and how's my baby brother?
