I’ve been busy. I’ve been putting a lot of hours at work lately. I hope that means I will have a better paycheck next time. I’ve been making very little money. I had to take out $5.000.00 from my savings account so I can survive.
I tell ya, times are tough.
I went to Costco on August 21st and 27th (2011).
Costco stocked yet another kind of coffee grinder for $29.99. This Krups burr coffee grinder easily goes for $60-70 elsewhere.
Costco’s Krups Coffee Grinder has mixed online reviews. It has overall 3 out of 5 stars. I figured half of the negative reviews are written by mechanically challenged people. This is is now my primary coffee grinder. It works fine with me.
And I bought some other stuff.
But, what’s important is that it’s Christmas time at Costco. If you like Christmas like I do, this may be the time to make a list. The whole point is that you are enjoying sentimental Christmas feeling from now for next 4 months.
I bought a toy helicopter for my nephew. And I bought a small LED Santa figurine for my desk. The figurines come in 4 designs; Santa, snowman, penguin, & angel. 3 AA batteries power 3 LED lights. NiMH batteries last about 100 hours.
LED Snowman was equally cute. I stood there for a few minutes, torn between Santa and snowman. I took Santa home, but I may have to go back for snowman. Penguin was cute but penguin didn’t look "Christmas" enough. Angel was not even cute. LED Santa was $9.99. Batteries were not included.
I took the LED Santa home, turn off all the lights at my APT, and turned on the Santa. That moment officially marked my Christmas season.
Times are tough. I am putting a lot of over time without any promise. But, I am mentally relaxed and feel happy. It’s Christmas time. Nothing else matters.
This year, I would like to bring happy feelings to even more of my neighbors, not just one or two.
