Economic Stimulus Check

Ours finally came in the mail. Like true patriots, we refuse to put this money in savings or pay down student loans. Nay, we will spend it on consumer goods.

Things I’d like to use our E.S.C. on:

1. Art
2. New Desktop {our imac is 3 years old and is starting to be quite loud.}
3. Things for Moses
4. Things for the house {Some nice pillows and maybe some new bedding.}
5. Equipment for my studio {I’d like a guillotine and a corner rounder, and a drying rack please.}

In reality it will probably get sucked into paying for part of our trip back east. 🙁

What will you do with your Economic Stimulus Check?

    Trip out West!
    Glad to see I’m not the only one using “nay” as an expostulation.

    Nate and I had a good laugh when we opened up our envelope to find just over $75. That should be just enough to fill my tank with gas next week.
