So today is a no shop day in our family (we only shop on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, which I explained a little bit here). It's a new thing we're trying out and we aren't over the top strict about it. But we try our best. Today I didn't try so hard. It was the early out day for Princess Sparkley's school, which meant I actually had time to go to Sam's Club (about 30-40 minutes away) and run some other errands around there. So we spent money on a coat for Princess Sparkley, shoes for Baby X, a ton of stuff at Sam's Club, and that was it. I let Sam's Club trips be excused from the no shop day rule because it happens when it can happen and sometimes it falls on a no shop day. Then I had to make cookies for one of Jed's classes. And I was 1/4 cup of flour short. So I ran up the street to the store. Then I got home, solved that problem and realized we're out of brown sugar (I was 1 1/2 cups sort). Argh. So I ran back up the street. I would have abandoned it all if I hadn't already started creaming the butter and sugar. And it was 10 o'clock at night so it wasn't like I could go knock on my neighbor's door and choose now to introduce myself. So today was a bad bad bad no shopping day. But I am making these (except not "Christmas Style"... I'm making them with white chocolate chips).
