So with everything being so scattered with Christmas Vacation and HB pulling a ton of extra hours I totally didn't realize that "that time of the month" was due.
I'm lucky that Aunt Flo is always prompt unless I'm pregnant lol
I had like 3 tampons in the whole house and those were in the bottom of my purse!
I got lucky that we had to take Kai to the dentist and we stopped by Walgreen's.
Kai had passed out in the backseat like all little kids do and I REALLY didn't want to wake her up so I caved and asked HB to get me some tampons.
1st time in 5 years that I asked him to get me tampons!
I knew it wouldn't be an issue I just prefer to get my feminine products my self lol
He agreed with no sighs, groans or other noises.
He even asked what kind! Brownie point for him lol
So I told him "Get either Tampax or OB ones. I hate Kotex. I need some Lite, Regular and a small box of Super."
HB "Ok got it. Do you want some chocolate while I'm in there"
"Oh I love you"
"I'll take that as a yes"
He ran in while I talked to my Dad on the phone. He wanted to know how Kai's appointment went.
HB came out a lot faster then I was expecting him though that's normal. The man is a speed shopper.
I noticed he had 3 bags! Full!
He climbed into the Jeep and started the motor.
Me "What all did you buy? I thought we just needed kids Tylenol and tampons."
HB "Well I got you Dew and some peanut butter M&M's. I got the Tylenol, myself some gummie bears and 5 boxes of tampons."
HB started laughing "5"
"Why so many?! I don't go through that many and where am I going to store all those?"
HB "Well I have no problem getting you tampons but I want it to be a long time before I have to do that again. I wanted to make sure you were covered!"
Welp I'm not complaining and I did find room for all of them since he got half Tampax and half OB. Those OB boxes are little and easy to store.

So for my birthday/Christmas HB surprised me with a Kindle Fire.
I was really surprised and a little apprehensive at first because I am a die hard book fan.
I love everything about the written word. I can reread my favorite books 20x's over. They're like wrapping myself up in my favorite blanket and getting lost in the pages.
I love the way books smell and the feel of the crisp pages under my fingers. I adore the soft feel of aged pages that I have read so many times they're memorized.
But I also am enamored with technology lol
So the prospect of a new toy that I could do something new with as well as read on was quite intriguing.
I have to admit the Kindle Fire is BEST freaking gift EVAR!
Omigawd that thing is more addicting then crack!
The amount of free books you can download are intoxicating.
I got it on the 25th and I've already read 16 books!
There are a multitude of cheap books as well .99 to $3.99.
Its a story smorgasbord.
There is every topic I could hope for and then some.
An additional perk is that Netflix works amazing on there as well as Pandora so I can listen to music while I read :::swoon:::
I can't wait for summer time so I can lounge outside and read while Kai plays in her sandbox under the big shade tree.
Its going to be HEAVEN!
