I hoped because we had such a mild winter (in Canadian standards) that our summer would be colder. But apparently my hopes have been dashed because it’s not even summer yet and the heat rolled in. The stupid humidity makes it a million times worse though and today it felt like it was 38°C (100.4°F) and I was not impressed.

Does anyone else seem to spend an obscene amount of money on the weekend? I feel like we just hemorrhaged cash this weekend 🙁 It started with getting Merle a bike. She’s never had one because every time we tried to buy her one for the last few years, she said that she didn’t want one. I was concerned she was going to be like Phoebe Buffay on Friends and not learn to ride a bike un tip she was in her 30’s 😉 But she decided that this year was the year, so we got her a new bike, helmet, bell, and decorative stickers (for the helmet) and it was stupid expensive. That rolled over into dinner with friends, grocery shopping, and several other things and I can’t help but feel sick over how much we spend on weekends.

I did get a few Christmas presents this week though. The 20th Anniversary Harry Potter Editions  (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff) were released in Canada and the UK (I’m not sure of the US relate date) and I bought them straight away. I figured if I waited then I may regret it and have to pay more. It feels super early to start to hiding Christmas presents in my closet again but an early start is always better than a late for me.

Is anyone else contemplating Christmas yet?

  1. This is going to sound ridiculous, but I started shopping for Christmas this year on Black Friday LAST year. Allow me to explain – I am American but live in the UK and since moving here I’ve only been able to visit once, back in 2014. I had a baby about a month before Black Friday, so my husband and I decided to aim for autumn/winter this year. So I’ve been slowly picking up stuff for people back home when I find things on sale. In addition to that I’ve also ordered all of my husband’s presents on US Amazon and just had them shipped to my parents’ house and made a list of shopping to do while there for his side of the family.

    I feel like such a big weirdo saying all of that, but it makes having a good holiday with loved ones I don’t get to see often possible. Also, while I’m grateful for having this time together, long maternity leaves can get really boring at times, and this ridiculously early planning is a great time killer.

    • I don’t think that’s ridiculous at all. I think it’s a totally good idea and allows you to enjoy the holiday season relatively stress free. My husband’s job goes on hiatus for almost 2 months at Christmas so we really need to be diligent in our preparation. I wish I started earlier 🙂
