I was taking a lovely nap on the couch after the big meal on Thanksgiving when Second Child decided to mold my face as if it was play dough. When she finally went away, I could drift back into z...z..z.... land with the sound of football playing on TV. Then came some insistent disturbance around my ankle and foot, oh I was annoyed!! Would someone please stop her already? Completely irritated, I decided to open my eyes, it was DH trying to wake me up because it was 3:50 and time to go to Michael's!!
The roads were completely deserted as I drove to the store. Funny to see a cluster of cars parked in front of the store and a group of women and men standing outside waiting for the door to open! They were ready for us, the store associates. I am sure that she could see my hungry eyes as I came to a screeching halt in front of all the Cricut cartridges. She cautioned us, "You must buy two cartridges to get this free one." That was equivalent of saying to me, "You must eat the turkey and the sweet potatoes before you can have pecan pie!" Where's the challenge?! Thirty minutes later, I was home with my five new favoritestestest cartridges. lol. Now fully awake, Second Child and I made more "animals" and she didn't seem nearly as irritating to me any more.
The next morning on Black Friday, I headed out the door to Menard's (a hardware store) for more Cricut cartridges. This time, they had the Cricut Lites for $14 a piece! Normally $40 and only "exclusively available" at Walmart or ebay, I don't know how this hardware store chain got ahold of these cartridges! There was a limit of eight per customer. I was reminded of this fact by several shoppers who saw what I had in my arms. I just wanted to get them all and find a place far from the madding crowd (yeah right) to decided in peace :)
So yes, veni, vidi, visa!! I am well stocked for Cricut cartridges for the year. I cannot be more pleased!
