The first week went great! We got outside more and didn't spend any time shopping. Yesterday we went to the lthe homeshow and were tempted by the discovery toys display but overcame it. Jayne got a free ice cream at dairy queen and we picked up a free bag of popcorn. We also won a $5 gift card to the grocery store and $10 to Dairy Queen. It was deffinately worth our $4 entry fee and was a fun family outing. I also picked up a free pair of Victoria Secret panties on my break at work with a coupon I got in the mail. We are feeling really good about how things are going so far and look forward to writing more updates : )
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
