Vegas was FABULOUS!!

And well needed. I had so much fun just dancing and hanging out with great friends.

Sorry if I am MIA for a bit. We move in less than a week (fun I know) and we just got results back that are not such great news. 8 more rounds of chemotherapy.. Ugg

Look out Vegas here we come!!

So I leave for Vegas on Monday. FOR A WEEK!!

The first 4 days are work related then on Thursday 5 girlfriends are flying in and we are doing Vegas BIG!!

I know 6 girls. Vegas.=GOOD TIME!!

I had doubts I was going to make the trip. When we found out about the Cancer I was going to cancel it all. But after we talked the hubby and I decided it was best for me to go.

So here is my Vegas mantra:
I am going to dance so hard my feet hurt, I am going to laugh so hard I cry, and I am going to drink so much THAT SOMEONE is going to puke!

Classy I know.

The hubbys sister is flying in to take him to his Chemo appointment. And I am having issues letting go.

I want to be there for him for everything. I so not want to miss an appointment, or treatment. So this is a big step for me.

To just let it go.

So I am excited to spend time with this girl!

And this girl

I am such a lucky girl!

I love me some fabulous deals!!

I have a love hate relationship with Kohls.

But I do love when I can go in and buy Vera Wang FABULOUS jeans for $5. And because they are work jeans the $5 splurge was warranted. PLUS they gave me %15 off for using my Kohls card.. Yeah I like that.

The ugly rivets on the back. Yeah they had to go.

So 2 minutes of removing rivets and $5 I have a great pair of work jeans!

You may be a jackass if..

Dear Lady last night:

When you act surprised when you first credit card is denied. I get it. I understand. But when you give me card number 2 and then 3 and those are also declined I tend to lose my sympathy and then when you give ME attitude and say "Well try this one then" under your breath.

Go screw yourself I am not the one with "issues" and when you ask for change for a $5 bill when your bill is over $80 and you barely paid that I am not too concerned with what you are going to leave me. I have already written you off.

And you should have kept the $2, obviously you need it more than me.

I am glad I do not have your issues.


Dear Lady at Walgreens:

I get that you may not like your job. But just because I wanted to buy something that ONE OF YOUR ASSOCIATES told me was on sale for $1.24 and I ask you why you CHANGED the price to $4.99? On your own?
And you sigh under your breath and say "That's the marked price"
And I say "The price is for what ever it is scanning for correct"
And you say "No its what ever is marked"
And I pick up a pack of gum and say "Ok where is the price on this? Or this chocolate bar?"

And then your manager explains to you that the customer gets it for whatever it scans for and YOU CAN NOT JUST CHANGE THE PRICE TO HIGHER BECAUSE YOUR AN ASSHOLE.

And yes I went got back and got more. Just to spite you.

Your an idiot

Dear Pizza Shop Owner:

I know your business sells coupons online for a fraction of what it costs. But you made that choice. And when a customer calls to see if "Because their husband has Cancer and is not supposed to be out in public places for a few days after chemo" would it be possible for me to come in and order the pizza and box it up and take it home even though the coupon says dine in? And you tell me "No"
And I say I will just come in and order in dine in then and then box it up.
And you say "No you are not allowed to take it home!"
And I plead to see if there was anyway (very nicely I may add) to make an exceptions.
And I ask that if I was coming in to use the coupon as "dine in" as it stats you would not allow me to take my left overs home?
And you say "THAT'S RIGHT!"

I hung up on you because your an idiot. And then we came into your restaurant and dined in and took our food home because we paid $2 for $25 and I wanted to use it. Even though after hearing the story my husband did not even want to go in and just "forget" the coupon.

Yes I reported you to

Not dining there anymore.

Chemo round 3 in the books

So I saw my own family doctor today.

Yep I have some serious stress related anxiety. And the stuff they gave me worked a little but not for sleep, so I have not been sleeping properly.

So I went back to the doctor today and got something else for the sleep. Hopefully this will help.

The hubby did round 3 of Chemo yesterday you can read about it here

And I am SUPER excited about my girls trip in Vegas in 2 weeks. I can not wait to hold my best friend in my arms!! To dance till I can not stand up anymore, to laugh till I cry and to do whatever else comes our way!

Life is good and I am thankful

Extreme Couponing?

Did anyone else catch the show?

I was AMAZED and shocked that people would go on national TV and do this... I mean toilet paper for 30 years?

Now the high they talk about I know about because I did it for some time.. But I did not do it to stock pile 17 years of food in my garage I did it to donate it. And then when that failed I liquidated some of it to friends and some of it made it to the flea market.

I still will not buy it without a coupon or if its on clearance and I WISH I would have kept tabs. Actually its a new year I am going to start a spreadsheet to document the money we save.

We still get mostly everything we need for free or next to it and I feel so BLESSED to have been able to learn this and teach it to others so others can save too!

it just bugs me that of the 3 people shown only 1 of them actually talked about donation...
