A couple of nights ago Scott and I were entering bills into Quicken. I had the credit card statement and would call out each purchase so he could log it properly. We were coasting along fine, me reading off the statement, naming where the purchase was made, the amount, and the budget category (i.e. gift, entertainment, household expense, etc.), and Scott keying the info into the computer.
Scott: Wait. $24.87? At Target? Double check that.
Me: Yes, $24.87. Wow...
Scott: Yeah, when have you ever spent less than $25 in Target? Was there another purchase there that day?
Scott: I don't know what to say, honey.
Me: It's a Christmas miracle!
We will tell our girls about this one day, who will, in turn, pass it on to their own families. It will grow as legend and will be retold each Christmas, forever immortalized as that year Leigh Anne spent less than twenty-five dollars on one Target shopping excursion.
