Such a Waste of Gas

We just got back from going grocery shopping (and heading to Shoppers so I could send out my tail), yes? Where did Mom and Naomi decide they were going to go right after we got home? Back out to Real Canadian Superstore to get chicken balls, and possibly other things. Why? Sobeys is much closer. You could even *walk* there. Oh, what's that? You don't like going there because it costs so much more? Think about how much gas you're wasting by driving out to and home from the same place we were just at. It is literally on the outskirts of the city, and as such, much too far away.

Now, sure, the gas has already been paid for, so my argument may be slightly flawed, but even in that case, go somewhere closer to the house, and that way, at some point in the future before you fill up the gas tank again, you'll have a little bit extra to use.

I wanted to buy another one of those rugs at Real Canadian Superstore though, but I checked my balance yesterday night, and found that I only had ~$7,730. I've actually been doing fairly well for not buying things with my debit card lately (not for a couple weeks, I think), but then today I spent a fair bit at Shoppers, and I'll also be needing to buy a new belt before too long, because the one I have now just suddenly started to tear apart. Oh, and a pair of shoes for work, too, but I've put off buying those for almost two months now, so I think I could go for a bit longer yet :p

So anyways, as I said up there, that tail has now been sent out, but it was awfully expensive. Exactly $29.19, which, in SPark's own words, is a lot just to ship a tail. Just a matter of waiting for now though. Unfortunately, I did not include anything on the note about that other idea I had, only because it wouldn't fit too well with the amount of money I plan on spending in the near future.

For one, there are Christmas presents (which will probably run close to $600 by the time I have everything), then also MFF, that meet in Toronto (if we are going to the Toronto Zoo afterwards, I am definitely buying a digital camera ^^;), and other little things that don't come to mind at the moment.

Chesh still hasn't replied, unfortunately, but one way or the other, I should have my ears by the 22nd, so that'll be fun ^^ I did actually think they were here yesterday, but it was actually that power adapter for my laptop, which is now tucked into the bottom drawer of my dresser. It's nice to know that even if the one I'm using right now should stop working, I have another one that works too, so yay :3

Anyways, this entry really isn't going anywhere, and it should be just about time for supper anyways, so that'll be it~
