We decided to do our xmas early since with all the snow I said his might come in handy with us being snowbound inthe house and him surely off work tommorrow… besides without kids our BIG christmas is with the families on Christmas Day.
I got him a number of xbox games, and some clothes. I was trying not to go overboard since I was trying to be Practical Jenny. PJ doens’t come out much. When she does I try to let her have her way. (the iPod was a PJ call, no really!)
The games mainly becasue he bought the Xbox for the one game he wanted Godzillla Destroy All Monsters. I have never been able to get him to try a second game. So now he has a The LOTR Return of the King, Simpsons Hit and Run and the GOOD new casino game (as opposed to the one reviewed as “the worst game released under hte xbox label”
Well, as usual, he outdid me.
Last year I got a $300 shopping spree at IKEA. This time, what I have been saying we needed to do was replace our dying TV of the many messed up colors, and since our entertainment center is too small for the stuff we have now let alone a new tv (our current one BARELY fits), a new one of those too (from Ikea of course). We also need to update our DirectTv boxes which are dying and 6 years old
Did he go practical? Oh no.
He confessed a few weeks ago he wanted to get me a Kitchen Aid StandMixer but didn’t know what color, and although I REALLY want one I said we need other things more this year. Like a New TV, like the other stuff we need, hint hint. He could get me the mixer next year, besides I really dont have a place to store it and in this house counter top space is limited – and besides, I’d feel guilty if I didn’t use it at least once a week. I can’t belive I said no to it, I so want one.
So what did I get? All FOUR seasons of Farscape on DVD – I’ll let you do the math on that.
I’m happy though! I have been whining for a few years that we got the 5 seasons of Babylon 5, and he got the 8 seasons of Stargate – *I* wanted to next start buying Farscape. We haven’t so far yet due to it being much more expensive than most other DVD sets. I figured maybe one for xmas, maybe one for a birthday, and so on. My thought was in two years we have it done. Mr Man is a ” it might go out of production, so let’s get it” guy. So he bought them all.
We are so gonna watch them all this month! (We could have had one hell of a nice TV for $500 though. Maybe nex month…
