Score : )

Yesterday I had an eye doctor appointment . Sissy needed to stop at the accountant. So we
made a couple of side trips while we were out. Hit Walmart to pick up the stuff we forgot , hit the accountant and headed to the doctor. Sissy yells 75 % off Mom turn . What .... where?????? It was Rite Aid . See for some reason there are 2 Rite Aids with in a block of each other. Well they decided to close one ( after having them both open for 3 years lol) So hit the brakes made a quick turn and we went inside. The place was pretty picked over but we were able to score some stuff.

2- composition books
1 -bakugan spiral note book reg price
2- packs of Crayola markers
5- light blue poster boards
3- big bottles of rid dye
( purple, scarlet, dark green)
2- small packs of rid dye
( orange)
1 - 5 pack of sharpie markers
1- 2 pack of sharpie click able markers
1- Paper pro nano stapler
2- small bottle brush trees
2- paper mate mechanical pencils
1-Revlon nail polish
1- Sally Henson nail polish

total before sale $ 78.26 after the 75% off $ 19.60

I was giddy lol lol. Sissy made her mama proud. I didn't even see the sign lol. Everything we got we're able to use , some of the stuff like the pencils where split up between the 3 kids. Other things Sissy needed like the nail polish lol lol . The dye ......oh man I'm so happy. Bear has been wanting to tye dye , and it was killing me to think that I had to spend $4.50 a bottle. So we got more dye for alot less. Now I have to find him stuff to dye lol.

Til next time........ Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!

Shopping, snow and stuff

Yeah it was that time again .... the monthly ( groan lol) shopping. We all know how much I love to shop ( gag gag ). So I spent a week check everything we have on hand and made my list. I woke Sissy and Bear and off we went. We get there and no list lol I thought Sissy had it so did she .... so we tear the van apart no list . OK we need to get it done ( One of Sissy's bff's grandma passed and she was going to the funeral) I had to wing it . I hate to do that into the store we went .We split up I sent the kids to go get the cold cuts and I started to shop. By the time I hit the cereal a woman stopped me and asked if I was trying to beat the snow. I started to laugh and told her that I was just trying to get everything in the cart before the kids caught up with me and started tossing stuff into the cart . She laughed and said that she was wondering why I was moving so fast . OK almost done the kids come back. I sent them over to dairy and ran over to check out the books ( always better to look with out the kids lol). I grabbed a few for me and finally found The Percy Jackson books for Bear. Well book 1 and 3 anyway but he's happy. We checked out and got home in time for the girl to get ready and go.Thank God that's over : )

Snow ....... OK it's going to snow. You'd think the people around here wouldn't freak. But they do. We really try not to make a big deal out of it . I mean it's winter and we normally get dumped on once or twice a season any way so ... OK it's gonna snow. Shopping is done , the flash lights are charged, we have plenty of wood around the stove, so we're good. What will come will come. I'm more worried about those people who will get pounded and aren't ready for it. I hope all of you who are in the path or this storm stay safe and warm.

Stuff..... Pretty much the same lol. I'm still working on my goals and hopefully will have something that works soon. Bear's doing good with his school work but I need to find him a more fun way of working on his multiplication. Both of the older kids are good just being teenagers lol. I've been thinking about starting a small business with a friend. All homemade stuff . Right now we're leaning toward , soap , lip balm, maybe some salves. Of course crocheted things. I have a couple of other ideas kicking around in my head , just need to sort them out.

So that's about it for now the boy is calling lol. Til next time , have a great day and stay safe.

This one is from the kitchen

From the kitchen again but now I'm standing by the front door.

From the bedroom doors.

From the bathroom door.

From the back windows by the wood stove.

Same corner just a different angle. See our bedroom doors????

A picture of the book shelves that won't flip for some odd reason.

So that's it I told you it was small and it really needs to be painted. Sorry the pictures are so dark :) . This works for
me at least for now lol. I'm not sure how else to rearrange it with out losing stuff that we use. Now we have to paint lol. I like painting but getting to the ceilings is going to be fun:) Ok I'm done for now. Next up ........Christmas. Til next time have a great day!!!!!!
