When cleaning out your coffee pot with vinegar to get rid of the buildup it seems like you can never get the vinegar taste out. I've run 4 cycles through my coffee pot. They recommend 2. I can still taste it. I dunno if it's actually there or if it's all in my head. All I know is that my coffee is "off" this morning. Not a good way to start the day.

Glamour Shots

I got an email from them the other day about a photo contest they were having. 9 photos for $19. Great! I have done their photo contests before and they always took great pics of the kids. I walked by there store in the mall the other day and there was a sheet over the store. No biggie. I just figured they were remodeling like everyone else in the mall. I went to their website and they're closed!! They aren't listed at all! The closest place is Dallas. I wonder why they up and closed so quickly? There was no sign on their space that said they were closing or anything like that. They were open about a week or two ago when I walked by. Just really strange. I'm sad. I really liked glamour shots.

Spring Break

I just booked my mom a flight to fly down here over spring break. Sheesh! Airfare is getting ridiculous! One flight for her is about the same price as it was for 2 of us to fly home last time. And lets not forget the spring breakers who are getting charged an arm and a leg to fly that week. Heck it's not even that week anymore it's the whole entire month!! $1100 for a flight from SD to TX. I mean come on now!!! Luckily we were able to get it cheaper than that. We did book almost a month in advance too. Anyway, that's my rant on high airfare. I think I would code if I had to fly my family of 5 anywhere right now.

It's just wrong

For moms to be sick. Isn't there something in the mom handbook about that? If not, there should be!

Free Pancakes

Yup, I said free folks! Today is National Pancake Day and IHOP is giving away a free short stack of pancakes to everyone who dines in their store today. They ask for a donation to help the childrens miracle network. So run, don't walk to grab some great tasting pancakes. I think I might just take the kiddos after school. :D

Pizza Hut

How hard is it to get an order right?

Last night we ordered pizza from the pizza place down the street. We eat there about once a month. We're boring and always order the same thing. Well last night I googled for coupons and I found one that was exactly what we needed. 2 large pizza's any way you want them and 10 breadsticks. Great!!! So we ordered a handtossed one and a deep dish one as well as the breadsticks. I ordered it and rob picked it up. He got home and only had one container of breadsticks. Ok, so they messed up. Only 5 breadsticks instead of 10. Open the first the second pizza ......handtossed. Not deepdish like I had wanted. Ok....two mistakes in one order.....not good. So we called. At first the lady said that the breadsticks got cut wrong and we did in fact get 10. Um, every other time we get 10 breadsticks they come in 2 boxes not just one. Then we tell her the pizza was made wrong. We ordered one deep dish and one hand tossed. After being on hold for awhile she came back and said that the only thing they could do was to remake the pizza. Fine. Go ahead. We'll be there shortly to pick it up. Rob drives down, gets the pizza, it's another handtossed pizza! He tells the lady and she says what's wrong now? That's what you wanted! NO!!! That's not what we wanted, that's not what we ordered, just get the order right! So she had them make yet another pizza...... a deep dish pizza like they should have in the first place. So now instead of the two pizzas and breadsticks that we ordered we now have 4 pizzas and a small order of breadsticks. Guess we've got enough for lunch for today and tomorrow. LOL. I mean come hard is it to get an order right? And since when do you argue with the customer and tell them that they are wrong????

One more

Can't leave Jaz out. I whipped this one up late last night. She wore it to school today. No matching top though. I was too tired. *gasp* A plain white shirt will have to do!

Just Cuz She's Cute

Jacey's new outfit

Ms. Melissa was getting rid of some of her fabric a few weeks ago and I gladly took some off her hands. This is what I made out of it. It's a two layer skirt with a peasant top. I shirred the top with elastic thread. I LOVE how it turned out. Now Jaz wants one. :)

Girl Scout cookies

are going to be the death of me!!!! Sigh.....they were selling cookies outside of walmart this morning. I tried to resist the temptation....I failed....miserably. I know have 4 boxes in my freezer. It's for a good cause right? :)

Punxsutawney Phil

Has seen his shadow. 6 more weeks of winter. Maybe that will give me enough time to catch up on all the sewing projects I've got going before spring hits. Ya right! Not enough hours in the day. LOL

The time has come

Yup, the time has come. I went out tonight and got myself a job. Although I consider myself to be rather thrifty and can sometimes get 101 pennies out of a dollar, I just can't make it stretch any farther. So I am now employed by a store at the mall, part time, nights and some weekends. 20-25 hours a week. I'll honestly say it's going to be a great break to get to talk to some adults and not have to hear why Curious George is doing something for the 20th time. :) I love my children to pieces but every now and then I need some adult conversation. :) Now to just raid the closet and find something solid white or solid black to wear. Hmmm, wonder if it will be ok if I have fruit loops on my shirt??? LOLOLOLOLOLOL

Happy Birthday JoJo

A day early. :) We had a great time at supper tonight! I'm glad that you were able to celebrate a great birthday. Although we should have been is friday night afterall!!! LOL Guess I'll let it slide just this once. Hope the doggies and kitties let you sleep in tomorrow. You can wait till noon to see if the groundhog sees his shadow. :)
