Ultimate Mess Moshed Monday
It's a bit blurry but I think Sue is worried about Ebola. Den wanted me to zip him in the plastic bag but he is way quicker than me!
Speaking of plastic, Den managed to get the plastic up on all the window. Wow, does that help with all this cold weather.
But then the old valances didn't match sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
If you want to save money, don't buy anything new for a room. It will just make everything else look like crap.
Maybe after the holidays, I could convince her to sew two valances for my room. Poor woman! Plus my SIL moved to OH and she is trying to help her. And DJ, bless his kind heart, gave the outer part of his zip apart coat to his roommate. DJ and I got into a HUGE fight when we were packing him to leave for college. He didn't want to bring ANY of his winter clothes. I insisted, LOUDLY. Seems he is one of the few kids that packed winter gear. My MIL is going to bring him more winter gear and buy him a coat and boots. It's 10 minutes out of her way to stop and see DJ when she is going to visit my SIL. I can honestly say, I have the best MIL that I have ever heard of.
For a recap of that drama, go here. Alls been quiet until the woman that started all the threats, sent Den a friend request on Facebook. How fried does your mind have to be to think that you can threaten someone's entire family and then they would want to be your friend? And the biggest question of them all is, why do crazy people target us? Let's not forget the lovely cards that we got in the mail announcing the birth of Den's love child and an invite for me to catch him cheating. Please ponder why this crazy shit keeps happening to me and come up with a solution.
Den and I scored an awesome waffle maker at a garage sale. It was a whole $1. Den took the plates out and I scrubbed the snot out of it with wanton disregard for electrical safety. It was a mess in there. And by the time we were done, it didn't work. A dollar and quite a bit of time wasted. So the lesson here is check to see if it works before you scrub it. Or the lesson is don't scrub it until it doesn't work.
I scored $3 from Pinecone and $20 in Amazon gift codes from Swagbucks. Dang, those spend fast! I count gift cards as money. My tally, my way!
To be honest, I'm done shopping and I have the tally on how much I spent minus one gift. We buy chocolates for the owner of Den's company for the annual Christmas party. I buy them the day before so they are nice and fresh. Its always around $45.
So here is the free money that I have gathered............................
$250 Bank of America credit
$100.49 Google(blog writing)
$156 Pinecone research
$25 Amazon gift code from Saving Star
$25 Bass Pro Gift card from MyPoints
$10 Chili's gift card from MyPoints
$25 Amazon gift code that I won from Donna Freedman at Surviving and Thriving!!!!!
$50 Gamestop gift code from e-rewards
$4 Liquor rebate
$134.40 Hotel refund
$60 Free gas cards from Silverton converted to cash
$15 Sears bonus giftcard for purchasing over $50
$20 Amazon gift codes from Swagbucks
Total $1195.02 for our 2014 Christmas!
And that is all the mess that I have for you this Monday. So leave here and feel good about yourself! Your life can't possibly this messed up!
