Three Things I Am Loving This Week:
1. Pampered Chef. My Pampered Chef order came yesterday. Actually it came twice. The first time the Fed-Ex truck pulled up, they delivered two boxes. Both had stoneware in them, but the little gadgets were M-I-A. After a quick call to my sister/consultant, she explained that the third box would probably be here on Friday.
I would have to wait until tomorrow to get the rest of my goodies. Then, what's this? SURPRISE!! The Fed-Ex truck pulled up again - with my third box. Squeals of delight & a haphazard opening commenced. I loved all the products & wished I could keep them all! Now I can't wait to try them all out.
2. CVS Extra Care Card. I had the ultimate rush last night. I had CVS Extra Cash Back dollars to use by October 13. I had a scenario worked out in my head, but I wasn't sure if it was really going to work out. So off I went. I bought four bags of M&M's (which they had on sale - 2/$5). I had $7.00 ECB to spend, PLUS I had (2) $1.00 off coupons for the Pretzel M&M's and $1.00 off two bags of any M&M's. So in the end...
...the four bags of M&M's were FREE!! And in actuality, I made $3.00 because I got $3.00 ECB for purchasing $10.00 worth of Mars products.
1. It's October. Now don't get me wrong, I love fall. BUT it's already the middle of October people! I have so many fun Halloween things I want to do and time is running out! I guess I better get a move on it and get those Halloween activities completed.
2. The "Volunteer" Fire Department. My husband has been a volunteer firefighter for umpteen years. This past week it has worked on my last nerve. He was out on a search detail for over six hours. I probably wouldn't have minded it, but it I had an EGD done that morning and wasn't feeling the best and he just left.
I am coming to the realization that it takes a really wonderful person to be a volunteer firefighter, but it takes exceptional people to be a firefighter's family.
