good things come in packages

In totally unrelated news, I got a package today! It was my stuff that I ordered online from Old Navy. I know, I know. I'm sure you're wondering why I ordered online after my last Internet sales fiasco. However, I feel confident in the knowledge of my sizing at ON, seeing as most of my clothing comes from the clearance rack there (or target's.)

I'm pleased to announce that my stuff fits! Woot! I'm currently wearing my $1.50, bright as the sun, screaming yellow shirt. To say its "bright" may be an understatement. However, I like it! ha! My new navy draw string pants ($4 pants, mind you!) fit, too! Woo hoo! I have yet to try on the kids' $1.50 shirts, but they appear cute enough (though it didn't go over well with O's pink-ometor. After seeing it, she promptly asked to hang it up for later.) The real test will be E. He's so darn picky. I'm really trying to force him into giving up his clothes from high school, circa 1999, and venturing into the year 2009. I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Oh, and I just carried $300 cash to Babies-R-Us, (with permission from E, mind you! Dangerous!) to buy a new double jogger. Our first thought was to buy another used jogger. But, we realized that our list of "wants" on a jogger might be hard to fulfill when you add in the adjective "cheap". We went around town last weekend, test driving any DJs we could find, which turned out to be very few. Seems most people who jog, don't with 2 kids. (I see the logic, don't you?) We were leery of buying on online due to our in store experience, likely enough. We researched and researched, found one that got great reviews, and test drove it at Dicks. It was horrible! Way to short for E to push, too short for my kids to sit in (seriously, my kids are short....who is actually riding in these?? puppies and newborns?) and had some serious under carriage storage shortage.

Here's what we ended up. its supposed to look like this:

Here's what it really looks like. Gee, I wonder what I'll be doing tonight after LOST?

Awesome!!! Ours looks a lot like that, but it's blue. The front wheel on mine doesn't swivel though, which is a great feature!!
