Today has been a LONG day. As soon as I can recuperate, I will let you know all about it.

Until then, Happy Black Friday and I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm back! Did you miss me?

It was a crazy weekend! Kid throwing up. Dog throwing up. Poop on the floor. Water mains outside my house bursting. And of course clipping those coupons!

Today was the Thanksgiving Dinner at BabyK's school. It was so fun! All the parents came and sat with the kids while a folk singer sang kids' songs. Loved it!

Who else is super excited for Black Friday? CVS will be great, especially if you keep your coupons. Other than that, I am still planning my course of action for where I shall be going. There aren't a ton of sales this year that strike my fancy. Well, ones that strike my fancy that I can afford. I'd be more than happy to post my wish list!

Cool thing. The local YMCA is offering childcare for Black Friday shoppers. How cool is that? Of course the frugal person in my says to skip it and just bring lots of bribes, a.k.a. fruit snacks and a favorite blankie.

How about you? Where will you be Friday morning?

God bless her...

I tell you, the phrase that always cracks me up every time I hear it is...

God bless her, but she is one of the worst cooks I've ever seen!

God bless him, he is a horrible singer, but he sure tries!

Every single time I hear a sentence start out with "God bless him/her" I know it is going to be a dig, but meant in the nicest way possible. But seriously, have you EVER heard a compliment follow that phrase?

That is all.

Love Facebook? Love pizza? This post is for you!

Papa Johns is giving away a FREE pizza when you become a fan of their official facebook page. Yum!

New addiction

So, I read an article online a few weeks ago about the "missed connections" section of craigslist. I never even looked at those before, but now that I have I am hooked! All of these chance encounters and the people sounding so hopeful, yet totally unhopeful that they will find that person who caught their eye. The best one by far was the one today where the guy said he liked the girl he met in court. She responded! To tell him she was sentenced after that to 3-5 years in jail! You can make this up!

Off to watch election coverage. I' sick of it at this point, but I can't help but watch! And I hope you voted!
