Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


My new watch

Army of Dad is so sweet sometimes. In the melee of returning to work and having the infection explode from my healing incision back in June, I lost my watch that AoD had given me for my birthday about seven years ago. I wasn't sure what made me sicker - the infection or the loss of a gift that he had given me. It was really pretty, too. A really nice Bulova watch that he picked out on his own.

So, earlier this year, his folks gave us a gift certificate for for our anniversary. We kept waffling on what to get and hadn't used it, so AoD told me to use it to get a new watch. So, I did and even had enough money to get me a copy of Just a Geek by Wil Wheaton, too. I read my Dancing Barefoot in June and loved it and have been wanting to read this one, too.

Here is the watch I ordered tonight:

And, yes, the 69 percent off comment is just a bonus for my pervy nature.

    Oh, looks nice...maybe even nicer than the one I gave you.

    Definitely not as nice as the one AoD gave me, but it will do the job and the price was right.

    Thanks, Alli.

    I have no idea why, but I've got 6 or 7 watches in my jewelry box. I guess I collect them like some women collect shoes.

    I should have just gotten one of your watches, I guess. I have several watches, too, but most don't work or are ugly. I've started letting Stinkerbelle play with them.

    Still waiting for my watch and book to arrive, but I did get free shipping on the watch and cheap shipping on the book, so I guess I'll get to sit and wait.
