Well, BabyK got his first homework assignment. Yes, that's right, at the age of TWO!

I am not a fan of preschool. Kids should have time to be kids and have fun and play. They are under so much pressure before they even enter the regular school system. That can't be good for him.

In other news...I have no other news. It's been a lazy weekend.

Oh, and my CVS day went like this:

Lady: That will be $35.08.
Me: What?? The make-up should be BOGO Free, and none of the sales rang up.
Lady: It'll come up later.
Me: Well, there are a lot of people in line. Just take the lip gloss off and I'll figure it out another time.
Lady: No no, I'll call the manger.

Manger comes over. Says some stuff. She re-rings my order.

Me: Again, if you could please just take off the lip gloss, I'll be on my way.
Lady: That will be $11.92. (I knew this was wrong, but paid, then got back in line to fix it so others could check out.)
Me: Both lip glosses are still on here. If you could please just take it off.
Lady: Yeah fine, we can do a return.

By this time I had already been there longer than the five minutes I had planned to be in there and was ready to go.

This was in addition to yesterday my extrabucks not printing at all. Doh!

So the deal was:

Panteen Shampoo, conditioner, style product $9.99 ($3.33 each)
2 Colgate Advanced toothpaste $2.99 each

-$1.50 Colgate
-$1.50 Colgate
-$3.33 Style product when you buy shampoo & conditioner
-$5.99 ECB

Total OOP: $11.92
$6.00 ECB Back


$7.72 refund

Acutally $4.20, which I used from my refund yesterday I got when my ECB didn't print out at the register, so really nothing OOP.

Here we go!

BabyK, at the ripe old age of two, is having his first sleepover tonight. Well, actually some friends wanted a night out so I'm watching their little girl, but boy, they already know how to be kids at a slumber party! I can hear them giggling in the bedroom, talking to each other, jumping up and down on the bed, and watching Cinderella. Now, normally I HATE any kind of television in the bedroom, but it's a special occasion. And it's just the portable DVD player. I gotta admit though, it's pretty darn cute.

In other news, how bout those VP picks???

Sicky sick sick sick

Home sick today. It's not often I get sick sick, and today is one of those days. Can't keep food down. Who knew some yummy cookies would look so horrific? I hate being sick. It is such a waste of time. I blame the kid who threw up at daycare earlier this week. Hopefully it doesn't mean that BabyK will be getting sick too.

I have had good deals to post, but haven't had the chance. You'll have to all wonder what fabulous things I have gotten for free.

That's it. Back to bed...or the bathroom. Not sure which will win.

Still raining!

For like 2 days straight now...that's a lot of rain.

In other news, wait, I have no other news! My power went out for a bit. The cable was out for a while so I couldn't check my email!

That's about it. How'd your day go?

Rain rain go away!

It's raining. It will be raining for a while. Got my sand bags. Got my water. Go lots and lots of dvds to keep us entertained. Just waiting for the sunshine to come back this way.

Another day in the neighborhood

This week has been not bad, not good. Just disappointing. Like I thought it was going to be just fabulous and then things haven't gone as planned in a million ways, so it leaves me just 'blah' like at Christmas time when you get a present as a kid and you just KNOW it is going to be the oh so cool toy you wanted when you open it and all it is is some stupid underwear with winnie the pooh on it that your mom still seems to think you would like even though you are twelve. It's not horribly bad, it's just a big let down from what you were expecting...well unless she actually makes you wear them.

However, leave it to BabyK to brighten my day. He can always make me happy. Today when I dropped him off to daycare he turns around and says "bye mommy love you!" Ah, that melts my heart. So tonight I took him to the park and he played so hard. Then we went for a walk because Riley (doggie) needed some exercise too. I decided to be bold and go on an actual walk - no stroller, no wagon, no push along trike, just pure walking. What was I thinking? Apparently I wasn't. BabyK didn't want to hold my hand, so I had him "walk" Riley so he was always on the leash, but I had a hold of his shirt ever so slightly so he couldn't get away. Of course he got tired of walking, so I had to hold Riley while carrying BabyK and then of course my phone rang...I am sure I was quite a site!

And to remind me that it's life's lemons that make lemonade...

Carl Jung:

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.

Another day. Another post.

So today was BabyK's first day at his new preschool! I was so nervous, but of course he just ran right in. He's at home no matter where he is. After dropping him off I worried and fretted all day because I am a mom and that is what I do and it was finally time to pick him up. When I got there he was in the time out chair, which is actually a high chair designated for the purpose. The nice teacher told me she put him in there because he was taking toys from other kids and wouldn't stop, so he got 2 minutes in there, but when she put him in, instead of being sad he got very excited and said, "Snack! Golfish! Milk!"

He's so silly.

In other news, I'm totally diggin' the Olympics.

I need a sleep vacation

I am so tired right now. I need a vacation. Not a go somewhere vacation. Not a 'staycation' but rather a go to a nice hotel, and just camp out in my room and sleep, watch cable tv (a luxury for me!) and occasionally venture out to the pool area to sleep in the sun for a few days vaction. Now I just need to find the time to go! Ah, sleep, wonderful sleep, where are you?

And on a totally different note, everyone please please please pray for all our troops over seas. Regardless of your view of the war, there are a lot of men and women putting their lives at risk for us and they are missing their families and friends and homes.

Okay, off to bed I go!

Let me ramble a bit...

Well, with the craptastic news that has been popping up lately, it's nice to have the start of the Olymics (although that too was sad with the murder...). Can I just say, I don't normally watch any of these sports, but there is just something so exciting about them that makes me watch. Who knew swimming could be so fun? I don't even like to swim! Let me take that back...I like to walk along the water. I like to wade in the water. I just don't like to get my face wet. I'm a dork, I know. I think we've covered this before. Wow. See, I told you I'd be rambling!

In REALLY random news, I have discovered the joys of Ocean Spray's White Cran-Peach juice. I don't even like to drink juice. 90% of what I drink is either coffee or water, or sometimes soda if it is too hot for coffee. I've never liked to drink juice, but this is quite yummy! I don't know why I don't like juice. I guess I'd rather drink water and eat an orange than combine the two together.

And that's all I got right now. Wow, you just wasted 3 minutes of your day. Or less if you are a speed reader. Toodles!
