Holes in my clothes?!

It's Saturday night and I'm sitting on the sofa watching The Lake House (Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock).
So here I am sitting down and I go to adjust my t shirt only to find a hole in the front of the shirt.  What's even odder, is that the other day, I found a hole in the sleeve of the sweater I was wearing that day.  Is it possible that there's something in my washer or dryer that's causing the holes?  I'm not happy, I really liked this shirt.  Oh well.

So yesterday I posted about how The Bay was having a clearance sale with an additional 40% off.  I walked over at 10am and in the first 15 minutes I had about 6-7 items of clothing in my hand.  Then I thought about checking out the deals on their bedding.

On Thursday J got his hands on markers and had left them uncapped on my bed.  When I got home from work that day, I found him asleep in my bed and the markers sitting there, with big splotches of green and brown ink on our comforter.  So I thought that maybe I could find a good deal on a new comforter.  I had no luck finding a comforter on clearance but I did find a duvet cover (set came with 2 pillow shams as well).  So I thought I'd compromise.  I bought 3 pieces of clothing and and the duvet cover set.  Total cost: $58.  As I took the escalator from the 4th floor to the 2nd floor, I realized that I really didn't need the duvet cover, and so I walked to the nearest customer service desk and returned the duvet cover set.  I got back $42.  Phew!  I'm glad I got some common sense knocked into me.  I realized that although my comforter is now covered in ink splotches, no one outside of our family even sees the comforter.

And one other win?  I went grocery shopping with a list today, and I stuck to that list!
