Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

The weather is warming up in Cali, and I am getting excited about lazy days at the beach and the park. I am all my beach chair, picnic cooler, sunscreen, beach towels, beach toys. Though I hate the sun and I loathe the sand even more I will make memories for my boys. I will, I will...

I have this love/ hate relationship with Costco. If you know me, you know I LOVE that place. I don't know what it is about that place. Maybe it's nostalgia. See, my family used to go there all the time when I was a child and it might bring back memories of childhood. Maybe it's the free samples. God knows that I like free stuff. I don't know why, but just love Costco! If I see something at Costco, I immediately think it's a deal! Man, those people have me brainwashed for sure. Like, if I see a book for Tyler at Borders and it's $5, I think twice about buying it. If I see a book for Tyler at Costco for like $10, I don't think twice- it just goes in the cart! I saw Shamwow at the mall and walked right past. At Costco, it just goes in the cart! Tubs of mayo? I just might need it one day! Cans and cans of salmon? I might be in the mood for a salmon sandwich, though I have never eaten one before! (If you ever get a gift from me and it's from Costco, please don't be offended, I just love the place!) Anyways, I also hate it because I end up spending so much money every time I go. Lately, it's been out of control. Like hundreds of dollars each visit. So, I've decided to go on a Costco diet. I'm not setting foot in that place for at least one month. I don't think I can do it so I am writing here about my Costco addiction so you guys can keep me accountable. I can do it. Thanks for your support and love and encouragement in advance. I will need it for the long, hard days ahead.

isn't it amazing how much money you can spend at costco?? still boggles my mind. but a combo pizza for $9.99 and a rotisserie chicken for what, like $4.99, is hard to beat! and the frozen spinach ravioli lasts for meals and meals. AND recently, they had a dozen organic apples for like six bucks or something. YES, still preggers and still thinking about food only.... no luck for a march baby, but doing well. =)
