CVS deal

CVS is willing to give you $100 worth of merchandise. They have a deal this week that the nova glucose machine on sale for $29.99 and you get a $20 ecb for each one you buy. Limit is 5. In the pharmacy they have diabetic books that have coupons in them for $50 off the nova glucose machine. They adjust your coupon to the $29.99 sale price so you pay nothing but tax and you buy 5 and get $100 in ECB back. I did mine one at a time so I would only get $20 back but I combined them with a $10 off 50 coupon and was able to get stuff that was free with ecb so I got my bucks back and some of the stuff had rebates so I could turn it into cash. I also stocked up on stuff we needed like toilet paper, detergent and trash bags. If you did get them all at once and got the $100 ecb you can buy some pretty neat gift items for xmas for free.

day at the zoo

Well I completed another one of my 101 in 1001 items. Went to the zoo with my sister and her kids. Took M with me. We had a great time and I took tons of pics. I put all the pics up on my myspace page but will post a few of my favorites here. I think next year I will join as a member so I can go all the time for free. It was a great workout. We walked for about 5 hours straight. Of course I am sore from the hips down now. They have a lot of things for the kids to do there.

someone couldn't read apparently

I joined a web site called Nablopomo. Basically you agreee to post every day in November and put your blog in a list with everyone else. There are almost 3000 users right now. I found out about it while surfing someone else's blog. I really need to put some time into my blog and add my links back that got deleted when I changed formats.
It has finally stopped raining. We got at least 8 inches over the last 3 days. I know it was needed but I am tired of it. I woke up feeling bad with a stuffy nose and I am sure its because of the cooler weather.
A guy I was going out with last year called me up out of the blue last night. We talked a while but I know hes only wanting one thing and I am too tired of being used to accomodate him.

Rain blessed rain

Well it has finally started raining in NC. It's now rained for over 24 hours. Its not all the rain we need but its a hell of a lot more than we had gotten for months. Greensboro, Durham and many other places were counting down the days until they would have no water so this should help a lot. Now if it would just rain in California. The fires still haven't been contained and thousands of acres have burned. They say it will be over a billion dollars in damages.
I finally got my spooky slots badge in Pogo. I am glad that game is done until next halloween. Now I am working on a badge in bowling. I hate bowling but at least its not a certain score. I only have to knock down the silver pins.
I had to do some laundry today. Found a bunch of coupons at CVS for b1g1 free 20oz vaults. I got a handful and got me 4 berry vaults for the price of 2. Coke apparently doesn't make berry vault in 2 liters. That shit is the bomb though, I have so much energy when I drink vault.
M didn't work today because her wipers quit working and she couldn't see to drive in the rain.

Work actually wasn't too bad. No crisis for a change. We did get into the dreaded politics talk yet again at work. I try to avoid these as I am about the only democrat that works there. Politics is just one of those areas where people dig their heels in. Natually they started spouting christians values at me. I told them I wasn't a christian so why would I vote according to christian values. Also while scanning some files to the shared drive, when I went in to rename the files I saw a bunch of files sitting there. I thought they were some that J had scanned before I started helping her so I was going to rename them and put them in the right folder. Turns out they were resumes for operations manager. None of us even had a clue they were looking for an ops manager. Now I wonder if its for our warehouse or the other warehouse. I hate not knowing whats happening.
I was so tired when I came home though that basically I haven't done anything but play on the Internet. I need to do laundry and dishes but I get so tired of cleaning house. Going to watch a new episode of Girlfriends tonight though.

Musuem of Anthropolgy

I started the day out exhausted. I didn't sleep well and my cablemodem wasn't working. I had to call and make a payment on my account. They always say they haven't cut my account off but every time a payment is due the account stops working and within minutes of my paying it works. Then I went to my aunt's to help her move. I had to wait an hour as they were not at home. I only helped about an hour and it was time to leave so I could go to the musuem.

I read online they were having a Day of the Dead exhibit at the Musuem of Anthropolgy. After I got there it seemed it was mostly for kids but it was still pretty cool. It compares to Samhaim in my opinion. I love the idea of an altar to remember your departed. They had a little buffet of Mexican food out. I decorated a sugar skull and made a picture card of an altar. They were having a clearance table with some pretty cool stuff. I got a river rock from the Ganges with a butterfly on it. I also got some presents to give to a few of the kids in the family. I got a couple of copper bracelets for $1 a piece. They aren't pure copper of course. I wanted to upload the pictures here but blogger kept having an error so I put them on photobucket to paste here. We had a pretty good time though. I will be going back to get more stuff later. The woman at the counter said they have a sale around Thanksgiving and the gifts were all pretty unique.

My altar card
PhotobucketMy butterfly stone from the Ganges River(its a lot prettier than this picture looks)
The jumping frogs are for Justin (hes 4) the peg games are for (Daniel, Taylor and myself) the flute is for Nick, the kimino notepad is for Jade as is one of the hanging charms. I also got a silver fertility goddess, and another silver image. I know its an Indian goddess but for the life of me I can't remember right now.
my sugar skull. She was a lot cuter before M got her face messed up with a purse strap.

Long time no see

Its been forever since I posted. I haven't been busy just stressed out. I swear it seems like my job gets more stressful on a daily basis. It used to be problems where the exception now they are the norm. Been doing nothing but pogo. I am getting way up there in badges though. I found one of those cheat programs for the puzzles and they took paypal so it never even cost me anything and there are all kinds of badge for the jigsaws. Yeah I know its cheating but so what. Still trying to get enough money to move out. I can't stand living here with M anymore. Still trying to get R out of my life not that its working. I have to help my aunt move tomorrow. I think thats 4 moves this year. Thats pretty low for them, of course it is only October so they can catch up with other years.
Finally found an old friend from back home on myspace. I found out she and her husband where divorcing. I never thought that would happen. Not that they had a good marriage but she was so trusting of him, I never thought she would see he was an ass. Turns out he had been cheating with the neighbor for months.
Went to the dr finally. My triglycerides are up and she has given me 3 months to get them down. She put me on an anti-inflammatory for my arthritis. Last month I had this disease known as MRSA. Now this month its all over the news as a superbug that kills people. Glad I didn't know then.
