Earlier this year Rob and I decided that we would not spend a lot of money on ourselves this year because we are taking a mini "just us" vacation in February and I wanted to save our money to spend there. Of course, with my husband this went in one ear and out the other. I, being true to my word, kept within the budget we "ahem" I set, and of course he blew it right to hell. The only thing I wanted for Christmas is a Kindle, or some version of it. (For those of you who don't know, (MOM), a Kindle is an electronic reader. When we were in Edmonton, Colby let it out of the bag that him and his dad we in an electronics store asking the sales rep about e-readers, so I have been very quiet about knowing what I was getting for Christmas. I even accidently saw an email come in about Kobo, so when I saw that well, I knew for sure. Rob has been super secretive and dropping hints about Christmas, so I didn't want to burst his bubble by telling him that I knew what he bought me. The only thing he said is that he blew the budget out of the water, but it was OK because the gift he bought me we both could use. So Christmas morning he keeps this box for me to open very last and I was preparing to pretend to be surprised when I saw my e-reader. Well, when I opened the box I was confused when I saw the Apple symbol and it took me a second to realize that he didn't buy an e-reader, he bought an I-Pad. And when he turned it over I started to bawl.
Can you see the inscription? No, here I'll give you a closer look.
He knew I'd be pissed when I saw it, knowing how much they cost. I wasn't pissed, I was in shock. I really didn't know what to think. I felt horrible because I stayed within our budget (which was 200.00 including stocking) and he .. well, you know how much this cost. But, now that I've had 2 days to get used to it, I love it. And I'm very quickly filling up my e-library with free books, because let's face it, I'm cheap. :)
