BARGAIN SHOPPING

on January 23, 2010 - 6:14pm

I spent a few hours alone this afternoon bargain shopping - again. I went to a cash liquidation store the other day and bought a beautiful $118.00 sweater for .99 cents. Today, I bought a pair of mens wrangler jeans (brand new) for .99 cents. Then I went to the grocery store and bought t-bone steaks for $4.89 a pound, Hormel pork loin for $1.99 a pound and ground chuck for $1.89 per pound.

My dad is having carpel tunnel surgery on his right hand on Thursday morning. In a few weeks, he is having his left hand done. The doctor is not guaranteeing him 100% because he waited so long, but something is better than nothing. Right now he has no feeling in his right hand.

I am very excited about the Viking/Saints game tomorrow and will be pulling for my Brett Favre. Love that man!!!

Friday, 1/21/10

on January 21, 2010 - 10:41pm

I am such a knot-head! A week ago, I stopped by the hair salon to make an appointment to get my hair cut. I wrote down, "Friday, 1/21/10, 1 p.m.". I was very excited at 11:30 this morning....the anxiety kept building up until 12:55 and off I went. So, I was 15 minutes late getting to the salon, but I had a magazine in one hand and a bottle of OJ in the other. I was ready to enjoy my afternoon off. UNTIL.... I walked in the salon, announced myself and received a strange look. The owner said she did not have me marked down for today at 1 p.m. I told her that I had an appointment for Friday, 1/21/2010 at 1 p.m.! I could not believe it. Friday is the 22nd - not the 21st. I moaned and groaned about having to go back to work, but I left anyway. So, tomorrow, Friday, 1/22/10 at 1 p.m. I will be off of work and in the salon getting my hair cut.

I scare myself sometimes.

Well, I am tired. Off to bed I go.

Winner Will be Announced in April

on January 20, 2010 - 7:18pm

Let the fool's ride on in!!! It should not be a shock to the natives of my part of the world that in the winter it gets cold enough for the lake to start to freeze over by the beginning or middle of January. The ore boats go through the channel until the first of January. This makes the ice unsafe for vehicles. Another interesting piece is that there is a strong current toward the last part of the channel by the coal dock that either never freezes or is only covered with a thin layer of ice. Natives of this area know it is never safe to #1: Swim or #2: Go on the ice in that area. My husband is one of the firemen who have to be trained every year for ice rescues.

What A Day It Has Been!!!

on January 19, 2010 - 7:46pm

In observance of MLK's birthday, our office was closed. Thus, I had a three-day weekend. I did go to the office yesterday, but did not feel well and went home.

Our office is so out of control again I don't see any vacation time in site. I would not do anything anyway.

I am waiting for a load of laundry to get done so I can throw it in the dryer and go to bed. By bad sleeping habits are catching up to me again. You would think I would learn my lesson, but no..........!

It's sad, but I do not have one entertaining story to tell.

Lullaby time...

Weekend is Gone

on January 17, 2010 - 9:40pm

I blew off my entire weekend and did not stay on task. I get tomorrow off because of Martin Luther King Day. Since I have to bring my son to school in the morning, I am going to go to work for a while and look for my office keys that are probably lost in the files somewhere.

Watched a few bits of the Viking game. Love it......... I love Brett Favre. I am a cradle Packer fan, but will follow Brett no matter where he goes. He was not happy last year. He did not have the fire in his eyes. This year I see a different man and I am so happy for him.

Off to bed I go.
