Remember the CHRIST in CHRISTMAS

24 Dec

We live in a day when it is more politically correct to say Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings instead of Merry Christmas.  I came across this video and it touched my heart with the beautiful message.  I wanted to share it with my friends, family and all of you.  I hope to share and education more people in remembering the true meaning of Christmas and keeping CHRIST in Christmas! 

Merry Christmas!!

Extreme Coupon Show on TLC 12/29

21 Dec

The Learning Channel (TLC) will be premiering a new show called “Extreme Couponing” on Wednesday 12/29 at 8pm ET (7pm here in the St Louis Area)!

I will admit, I use coupons on almost every purchase I possibly can.  There have been times where I will not buy something that I might need if I know I have a coupon for it at home.  Over the years of couponing I have become better organized and a better planner.  I know I still have a lot to learn. but I feel the couponing I do (the level of couponing) is right for me and my budget. 

I am interested in watching this show.   There are a lot of people who don’t understand couponers!  There seems to be some negative thoughts and ignorance out there in the world about couponers!  Here’s what caught me a little off guard about this show when I was reading the description…

“Profiling 4 shopping addicts who go to extremes to find great deals”  

I hope that TLC doesn’t make couponers out to be shopping addicts, hoarders or a bunch of crazy people!  I don’t care if they do!  I love couponing and the money I have saved and helped others to save! 

So, what do you think?  Will you be watching?  It happens to fall on the 29th which is my husbands birthday.  I will have to set my DVR so I don’t miss it!!

Don’t SHOUT at me!

9 Sep

Today started as any normal day.  My body alarm clock went off right at 7am. 

  • 7:05  looked at the clock and thought, really is it morning?
  • 7:10  heard the drawings of a 6-year-old on the famous magna doodle.
  • 7:13  after a few words with that 6-year-old she is up and getting in the shower.
  • 715:  I hear the alarm going off and a sleepy hubby not wanting to get up.

<It is an amazing feeling when your child is to the point where he/she can shower by them self.  Now if I can just get her 20 minute showers brought down to 10 – 15 minutes.>

  • 7:22  I am downstairs preparing lunch and snack.  PB & J is on the menu today. 
  • 7:27  I get myself in the shower and notice husband is leaving for work. 
  • 7:35  Grace is heading downstairs to have breakfast as I am getting out of the shower.
  • 7:40  I am dressed for the day.  Hair is dry and I notice it.  A STAIN!!

<Don’t you just hate it when you take the time to pick out your clothes.  You actually put these clothes on and do your hair and THEN notice there is a stain?!  To top it off it is on one of my favorite shirts.  My initial shirt.  “JS”  I made it my self.>

  • 7:41  I actually ask myself the question, “Will anyone really notice?” 
  • 7:42  I change my shirt to a less favorite t-shirt.
  • 7:45 Grace brushes her teeth and we finishes getting ready for the morning
  • 8:40  Bus comes!!

<I really didn’t think today would be that significant until about 45 minutes ago.

  • 12:45  ate a wonder lunch of veggies covered with cheese and a glass of water.
  • 1:10    cleaned up the kitchen and finished laundry – trying to SHOUT out a certain stain
  • 1:30   noticed shirt #2 had a stain!!
  • 1:31   I yelled, “what the hell!!”
  • 1:33  I sprayed SHOUT, I think I sprayed half the bottle on shirt #2
  • 1:34  I picked out shirt number #3

<Wish Me Luck  My day is not over yet.  😦 >
