Free Bic Pens at Target

Yesterday I took my $1.00 Bic Stationary coupon (Printed from the Target website) and scored free pens! Perfect for back to school, but I use them for crafts at work.

In other news.. we spent the weekend at the lake, it was hot but very relaxing!

TARGET Toy Clearance


Target started marking down their clearance toys to 75% yesterday!

I was able to take care of my sons birthday and also got a good start on Christmas. Upon arrival I noticed signs for 30% and 50% off the end caps, but then I noticed an employee in the toy isle marking down items. Closer inspection of the tag revealed a teeny tiny little "75" in the top right hand corner of the red clearance tag.

Things in the line up were from: Star Wars, Iron Man, Transformers, along with summer toys like bubble guns.

Guilty Addiction

I'll admit it.. I'm a 40 year old women who has become addicted to all things "Vampire". Actually, I was an AVID fan of "Buffy" and later "Angel", so when my neice started talking about the Twilight series my ears perked up. Yes I've read all the books and even the online additions Stephanie Meyer made public on her website.

Aside from Twilight I've read two other series that kept me up late, missing my favorite shows and pretty much ignored my family until they were done.

The first series is Vampire AcacemyLast Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, Book 6)

I'm awaiting the release of the final book.... Due out December!

Another series that I just finished is:
Actually I finished "Burned" it is soooooooo good!

Both series are easy reads. I will finish a single book 2-4 hours after starting it, and that is mainly because I can't seem to put them down once I start!

Back to School ALREADY?

Good morning all! I am happy to report a loss of 3 pounds, but it means that I'm back to where I've been for the last year or so.... and I guess if I was honest with myself I am pretty darn comfortable... Comfort = Complacency. I suppose.

In other aspects of my life, my son is getting ready to enter the second grade. While in kindergarten he was diagnosed with ADHD and more recently ODD. It has made our lives.... hmmmmm.... interesting. I'm going to start talking about it on here.

Also, I've been diagnosed with POD... which in short means that I'm allergic to FLUORIDE... so yeah... Toothpaste & Water... hmmmm.... interesting.

So join me because I plan to post a new blog every day.

Thanks to those of you who have followed me for years!

Summer Heat and the Baseball Season that Never Ends!

Our rain outs have been rained out and it doesn't seem to matter that the news is telling us to stay indoors... off to the ballpark we go!

We are coaches and also back ups for snacks....... luckily I found some Koolaid Jammers on sale at KMART the other night along with some Hershey Bars..... Cooler is stocked and we are ready to go! I prefer the Sugar Free versions.

More Later.

Well...... 3 years banded and I'm still here

So many many many many changes.............. but guess what..... I still love my band!

I really need to get my head on straight, but the problem is.. that I'm very comfortable where I'm at.....

I kid you not...... I have been between 203-208 for about a year. Yes, I would LOVE to be back in the 170's and wearing size 10's....... but my 12's are ok for now.

I still eat to fast and I run to the nearest toilet to spit out the shoveled food.

My mom was banded November 2008, and she is doing great she is stuck somewhere in the 220's................. and since both of us started on the OTHER side of the 2's.... I was at 274, and she was at 285...... being here and staying here for two years.... has been a wonderful feeling........

So many of us bandsters...... fall of the face of the earth after 1 year... and I think really it is because we get bored or are just out living life..... I KNOW that I could easily be under 200 with very little effort......but getting me to DO it is something all together different.

My band date was April 26, 2007......... 3 years baby..... 3 years.... it is just part of me and..

Here is a pic of us....... taken February 2010
