Overheard on the way to Church last Sunday:

Cam - "I think this ball is made of rubber."

Josh - " Well, I'm made of Heavenly Father!"

I was gonna write something witty about the price of the items below, but they're doing double coupons over at Smith's and I haven't got time to waste on the silly computer!

After coupons, rewards, etc, I paid $7.69 for all of it. Pretty good deal, huh?!?

Now, I gotta get to Smith's!

The Price WAS Right!

We're starting a new segment here on the blog.
It's really for my own entertainment, but you have to play along or it will be really boring.
It's called
The Price Was Right!

Here's the promo shot that will be running on all the major networks later today:

Yep, that's me and Bob.
You never knew I had such a rockin' body under all those hoodies and jeans, huh?

So, the way to play the game is I go shopping and score a deal that I feel is worth bragging about. You simply leave a comment with how much you think I spent. Quit moaning - you know you love this stuff! Oh, come on, it will just take you a second and it makes me feel even better about the deal I got. The winner will receive a free Photoshop one-on-one lesson with me!

Here's today's deal: 6 boxes ice cream sandwiches, 6 Sunny D's, 3 HVRanch dressings, 8 chocolate bars, a 4lb. bag boneless skinless chicken, carrots, salad, tortillas, toothpaste, and Oscar Meyer hot dogs. I will tell you it rang up for $71.22 before cards, coupons, child trades, etc.

Let the bidding begin!

Sam peed off the bridge today. All over my coupons, a little on the couch. He thought it was funny.

I went over the budget today. Jared called and told me he had to pay $400 to register his car. $400 from where? Your secret we're-rich-and-Kelly-doesn't-know-it account?

There's no diapers left. Who used the last diaper and didn't tell me?

I'm having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Then, I heard this on the radio:

Sounds like life to me it ain’t no fantasy
It’s just a common case of everyday reality
Man I know it’s tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you’re caught up in some tragedy
It sounds like life to me

See, country music can fix everything.
What am I whining about? I've got it pretty good!

The pee is cleaned up. And, only one of my six sets of coupons had to be trashed. And, Sam gave me loves.

We have money in the budget for our needs, maybe just not our wants.

I found a $10 WalMart gift card that I had forgotten about so I got the diapers for free.

I'm blessed to be having an ordinary, watched over, pretty good day!

Not-so-gentle reminder


Maybe this wouldn't have been so bad if
* I hadn't been exhausted from throwing up all day yesterday
* He hadn't just brought me a handful of 'diaper fillings' five minutes earlier
* He hadn't torn off his diaper and peed on the bathroom floor just so he could flush the toilet (after the aforementioned diaper episode)

So, please, next time you see me, don't tell me he's a handful. Really, you have no idea!
