Some people actually think I'm kidding when I say Martin forgot my birthday. I'm not. However, one thing Martin does well is adapt. He told me he would take me wherever I wanted to go. I said, "Let's go to Trader Joe's". We went to the new Trader Joe's for our mini date, then walked next door to the new Half Price Books. I was excited because I had a coupon. They don't do coupons very often, but when they have one it is 40% off one item. I try to find a really nice quilt or sewing book and save a bundle. I found this one.
It is a beautiful book and originally priced at $75.00. Yikes.
It was marked at $12.49 and with my 40% off coupons, it came to $7.49. Martin was wowed and said that since it was Birthday Month, he would let me choose another. Generous.
This was also nice.
$25.00 down to
All together about fifteen bucks. Martin told me I was a cheap date and that he was sorry for missing my birthday. He said he would make it up to me. Stay tuned.
