Charlie Sheen will go down as one of the most entertaining trainwrecks EVER. LOL What insanity will happen next? Just when you think he's done... out comes something else. It's amusing, and yet if this was you or I - we'd be locked up faster than you could say Boo.
I saw gas for $3.77. I told DH that at work they might as well implement nearly double shifts (like 12 hour shifts) and add in some bunk beds for those who don't want to drive home, because I think we're looking at $4.50 gas this summer. He drives 20 minutes, there are others who drive 30, and I know at least one drives 45 minutes. (Yikes!)
For me, I've been "training" DH on how to pick out fruits and veggies, so he can grab them on the way home from work if we are running low. One trip out a week, and that's mostly for library purposes or I'd drop it to every 10 days. (We check out at least 20 books a week for the kiddo alone, lol Can you imagine the looks on the library clerks faces if they saw us checking out double that amount? LOL!) Summer growing season can't get here fast enough, and I am really hoping my plants take off well so I can cut some out of my grocery bill for awhile. Bring on canning season!
I don't even want to hear what concerts are going on anymore. :( Between gas and parking, or gas, parking, and ferry, add in dinner before... and a snack after... plus the tickets? And a babysitter? Forget it! Which is why....
I, who doesn't drive, and hates cars and NASCAR, am totally excited for Cars 2 to come out this summer. We're planning our outing to the drive in movie theater (God's gift to those with small children who like to talk and get cranky when it's past bedtime LOL). Bring on the snacks and the movie! Plus, it's great for us frugal folks - $8 gets you two movies. I can pack a picnic or splurge and get hot pretzels or a pizza. Even with gas at $5 a gallon, I'm still walking out of there spending $30 for an evening out, because kids under 4 are usually free.
World’s youngest granny is just 23! I'd go off on that, but then I realized they are Rom, and their world is different than ours.
...at 23 I was more concerned with racking up frequent flier miles and attending concerts, forget kids. Even if I could rewind the clock to say, when I was 19 and go ahead and marry DH then, I still wouldn't. Waiting is what made our marriage what it is. (Or like we joke, we needed our Rumspringa in order to settle down and realize that we already were on the green side of the fence)
Apparently, not that I was as wild as kids are these days. To me, being wild was boarding a bus by myself and traveling around knowing no one. And in this post 9/11 world, I can't say I'd do it now.
Look out, I received a free product coupon for doing a survey for a company - I bet you either A) the maximum price on the coupon is lower than the actual price of the coupon or B) the clerk will argue with me over the coupon. I'm excited they gave it to me though, I was expecting a cents off coupon! (Now, that's happy mail! lol)
Ew. The coming week's grocery ads look rather BLAH. I don't see that much I am super excited over on the first run through it. Is anyone else as frustrated as me at the price of butter? I used to always stock up on the store brands when they were 4/$5 just this time last year, and buy Challenge butter when it was on sale (they really are my favorite brand) Now the best price I have seen in ages is 2/$5 for store brands? Ouch! Same thing with sugar. Remember when you could find it 2 or 3 times a year for 99 cents? I stocked up last week Freddy's when it was $1.99. That hurt! (plus, you are lucky some brands still have 5 pound bags when most are 4! Geesh!)
No inflation my rear end. Hmph.
I know, I'm the boring housewife whining about prices yet again. But higher grocery prices = less fun money to buy other things.
Like zombie t-shirts for DH. LOL You know how when you go to Disneyworld, you have to watch the cost of souvenirs, or you can go broke fast? That's what I am going to have to do with him at ZomBCon. I'm confiscating his wallet, giving him an envelope with his "allowance", and when it's gone, it's gone. I don't mind the unique stuff. And functional defensive weapons, yes. Something that breaks at first swing? No. A Russian gun you can't find ammo for anywhere but online? Definitely NO!
...some women like shoes, I like guns. Wait, I like shoes too, but guns are just as fun. ;) Course at the price of ammo these days - zoinkies!!! They should be silver bullets at that prices! LOL!
So I bought a new cast iron griddle pan (on sale for $14.99!), and the checkout clerk asked me if I was planning to use it to keep my husband in line.
Who, me? I would never thwap my husband up the head with a frying pan... *whistles innocently* I seriously don't know how my DH managed to keep his mouth shut back at her, though. Some days, that man has the patience of a saint.
DH has been watching Billy the Exterminator over on Netflix the last few nights. All I can say is no wonder some of these folks have insect problems... ick, ick, iccckkkk! I got a giggle out of him talking to the very angry racoon in the one episode (the one that bit him on the roof). LOL! I don't know what the guy gets paid, but on a lot of the ones they've shown, he's sure worked for that paycheck!
...I have an exterminator. His name is Magick. The word got out, that he means business. He's able to leap buildings and land smack on all bugs that dare enter his domain, killing them instantly with his overly chunky kitty body.
Your happy giggle of the day:
