Randomness

I haven't felt well since Sunday, hence lack of posting around here.

----------

I am about halfway done with my Christmas shopping, which thrills me greatly.  I've accomplished 75% of it online so far.  I enjoy shopping, but I get frustrated when I go all the way to a store, park, and fight the crowds only to find that they're out of what I came for.  At least when they're out of something online, you can switch to a different retailer in a matter of seconds.  I'm expecting deliveries from three different stores today!  Hurrah for Black Friday shopping online!

----------

I am still couponing and still enthralled with the television show.  My stockpile is growing beautifully and I'm finishing under budget every week.  Hubby scored an awesome deal this week at work.  A woman was carrying a large stack of newspapers to the trash Monday morning.  Hubby stopped her and asked if he could take the coupons from those papers.  She didn't mind at all.  So they came up with a plan:  he'll take out her trash every Monday while keeping all the Sunday coupons!  Score for me!  I got a tube of toothpaste for free this week ($.50 for the remaining tubes I bought) and $.50 for Pantene shampoo and conditioner!  Boo-yah!

Pandora Christmas station - two thumbs up from this blogger!

----------

I don't like to put up my tree or Christmas decorations until December.  The kids all know the first is tomorrow so they're really getting on me.  I love the decorations, but golly, it sure is a lot of work!

----------

I have at least three things scheduled every Saturday for the rest of the year.  On Monday, I am triple booked, all at the same time.  Ah, the hustle and bustle of the holidays!

----------

To answer a question from my last post, the awesome Black Friday item I scored for 70% off was a Disney Princess Carriage Playcenter.  It's one of the items I'm expecting to be delivered today.

----------

I went running over the weekend, which was the first time since September's marathon. Let's just say I got my tail whipped! I ran/walked 1.75 miles, with the walking almost exceeding the running. Son #1 had to show me up and run two complete miles. Brat.


----------


I am really excited about the Muppet Mania that is going on right now!  I was a huge fan of The Muppet Show when I was little.  I think it came on every Saturday night at 7:00.  We had to have our baths taken and our pajamas on if we wanted to watch it.  My mom would threaten all day Saturday, "If you're not good, you won't get to watch The Muppets tonight!"  It always worked!  I've been singing the chickens' version of "Forget You" for days now.

----------

We have a little bit of snow on the trees here.  It was in the mid 60s earlier this week so the snow is a change of pace.  This November was the nicest November I ever remember having.

----------

At Thanksgiving, I didn't tell you all how thankful I am that you read my rambling words nearly every day.  Without you, I would just be releasing my thoughts into the void.  It's so nice to have someone who listens.  Thanks.

Lizzie and I went to the Muppet Movie on Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. Sorry you were ill over the weekend. It must be a theme. I've been having health problems for a few weeks. Hope you feel better soon.
