It's A Christmas Miracle!!!!....
So, my kids and I have this little thing that we do. If something un-expected happens one of us or a few of us at the same time will say, "It's a Christmas Miracle!" I can't really remember how that started, but it has been our little thing for a year or two now.
Tonight I got my own little "Christmas Miracle". I went to Wal-Mart, because I wanted a little bag to keep my embroidery in, so that when I am waiting for Dr. appointments I can have something to do. I was looking at one really cute bag, but it was $12 and I am super cheap, so that was a bit too rich for my blood, plus it didn't really have enough zippers, so I was looking around trying to find something else that I might like for less money that would work better. Low and behold I saw it, the perfect bag! It had lots of pockets, zippers, a place for everything. It could replace my purse, hold my embroidery stuff, and had enough room for Klayton's diaper needs. Can I say again, that it is the PERFECT bag. Best part of all, it was on clearance from $20 down to $9. The cheapskate in me was completely willing to spend 9 bucks on it, so up to the register I went.
When the clerk rang it up she looked at me and said, "That will be $5.41 please." What, it was almost 1/2 off the sale price! I said, "Merry Christmas to me! I love when that happens." It was my own little Christmas Miracle! And with the money I saved I went and bought myself a large iced hazelnut coffee from McD's. Yeah, tonight was pretty much awesome. Gotta love nights like that!
You didn't think I would blog about the perfect bag without at least showing you what it looked like did you? So here it is, my perfect $5.41 bag that is exactly what I wanted!
