“How much shopping can one person do?!?”, my husband called out as my fingers clicked madly away on the keyboard jumping from one cyber-deal to another as quickly as I could.
“It’s almost midnight! Don’t distract me! I am working against the clock here! Just wait til you hear how much money I saved us”, I responded.
“Which only means you spent that much more” he replies.
I try to block the sound of his voice out so my fingers can g8et back to racing madly on the keyboard as I watched the cyber deal countdown clock quickly tick away. Then “bing” my phone beeps to let me know I have an email from my husband….what? He is sitting right across the room from me…why the email? Then I opened it and read the following poem (which he was quite proud of himself for finding and sending me):
Busy as a bee,
Flying here and there.
On a shopping spree,
Take away her card,
Before she ruins your life.
Nothing is as hard,
As a shopping wife.

I suppose it could be worse. I could be in a store shopping and trying to babysit him there. Just like this poor woman whose letter from the store owner made the newspaper:
SO, yeah, it could have been worse then dealing with his comments and poems tonight. 🙂
So that is the story of my night. And now it’s close to 2am and I have finally cleared my last shopping cart online and it is time to write to all of you and then jump in bed for a short sleep so I can get up early tomorrow and start on Super Tuesday Online Discounts!
Happy Shopping Everyone and may you get fabulous cyber discounts on all your purchases this season!
