CVS Game

I'm getting better and better at the CVS game. I didn't even know this existed until I began to work for Minute Clinic. Sitting in a little room for 12-hours a day can be crazy-making unless you figure out some type of diversion. Of course my favorite thing in the world is to shop and when I can save LOTS of money doing what I love...all the better. My kids are benefiting from my "game" too because now they don't have to go to the grocery store to get soap, deodorant, toothpaste...etc. Saving money is fun!

Tuesday, April 8, 2008 are more!

I really thought I had put everything in the last post but I missed some! More fun and ways to save! (codes) (free Walmart samples) Linen N Things ebates Coupon Mom Consumer Queen Coupon Queen Sassy Sue

I know I'm crazy but....

....I have to do SOMETHING at work when I'm bored so I have been searching out sites to teach me about saving some $$. Here are some of the sites I visit often. It's addicting! Have fun trolling!

My friend Kathy tagged me and since it's been almost a year since I blogged I couldn't remember how to sign on to my own blog! LOL! Anyhow....I finally figured it out so here is my reply to her tag:
Here are my random tidbits...
1. I hate, hate, hate television. I would rather have a quiet house than the racket of TV blaring all the time
2. I need to wear shoes all the time. My feet are very sensitive and I have a habit of breaking my toes. So far I have managed to break all of them at least once.
3. I hate bar-b-q potato chips because when I was about 7 years old a boy tried to kiss me and he had just eaten some. I associate that smell with that unpleasant experience so I hate those chips
4. I wanted 6 kids...had 5, which is OK in the long run because they have worn me out.
5. I always wanted a red-headed kid. Didn't get one but my first grandchild is a red-head
6. I love the desert and hope to retire there someday
7. Everytime I chew gum I manage to bite my tongue or my cheek so I never chew gum
Now...maybe since I've figured out how to find my way back here again I'll post more....
One can hope

The torture has ended

Who says higher education is good for you? All it's done for me in the last two years is raise my stress level, put on about 20 pounds, make my house look like someone threw up all over the place in it and put additional lines on my face. Actually, I'm very proud of myself for surviving nurse practitioner school but let it be known that I will NEVER do this again. I've given my family permission to put me down if I even mention the word school again. We'll see if I can keep my promise.

Shirley needs?

A friend suggested that I type in my name followed by the word "needs" into google. Well, I did and this is apparently what I need...

Shirley needs a lot of prayer in healing her lungs and healing off cig's. NOT! I've NEVER smoked!

Shirley has been in a mess she needs to get out of the place she is in fast. I've said this DAILY!

I agree that Shirley needs a facelift....HEY! That's not nice!

Shirley needs new heart to arrest shopping decline...There's been a shopping DECLINE? Try and convince my husband of that!

Shirley needs analysis. I agree....someone needs to analyze me quickly to find out why I'm so crazy.

Shirley needs hair. Say what?!!

Shirley needs variety and lots of.... Well, don't leave me hanging....lots of WHAT?!

Shirley needs your stories in her Parental Rights Advocacy Book. OK...whatever....

Shirley needs to crawl back into the hole she came back from, because she doesn't sound like a good mother, does she? That's right....I beat my children....

Shirley needs to stay out of the race. Too late....I'm well entrenched in the rat race.

Shirley needs strength for her hobby, which is mountain climbing. My husband will be thrilled that I'm no longer buying scrapbook supplies.

According to Google....these are the things that Shirley needs.....
Hmmm.....I'm not sure I agree.

Back to the "Real" World

Well, here I am back at work again. I'm bored silly because there is nothing much for me to do since we don't have clinic today. My friend must be bored too because she was bugging me to make another blog entry. So.....this entry is dedicated to Denise....are you happy now?
