I had my MW appointment... I lost two pounds, which puts me up a net total of 2 pounds this pregnancy. woohooo!

Then I stopped at Circuit City on the way home to get Rina's gift... Scott told me to try keeping it below a hundred... not going to be super easy since the kid wants a digital camera, and I don't want something she won't actually be able to take pictures with...

SO.

I got in and I see a camera that I kind of like for 99.99, but they don't really have the color I like...not that big of a deal, I guess, but I'd really like to start out at the 89 range just to keep it right around that hundred... *sigh* Oh well. I ask about their open box deals. She looks and finds a Nikon coolpix L6. Original price was 119, and she looked it the computer and said it was 93.96, but said that sometimes the manager will go even lower than that... so she went to see him.

She came back and said, "I guess he feels generous today; he said he'd go to 69.96!" I said, "SOLD!!!"

It's a cute camera... and it takes the same card as my old camera, so I don't have to buy a new card! I have a 512 that was fairly new when I got my new camera, so it's just screaming to get used!!!

I paid 74 and change out the door for a 120.00 camera! yay!!!

Awesome deal! Chris got our TV for about 50% off because it was a floor model.

Yes, she does. And just like we thought would happen--the 8 year old has been in a constant fit over it since. I swear these kids are going to make me use a gun...

That's pretty much it. And that attitude over it is pretty much spilling over into EVERYTHING!
