My Life somedays...

First my night was better than last night...only got woken up twice by the baby so maybe tonight it will only be once?! Well for some reason the kids were crazy this morning. We didn't leave the house until 8:22 and school starts at 8:30 we normally are pulling out at the latest 8:18. I really don't know what got into them this morning. They got ready for the most part and then stopped doing what they were suppose to and started playing. What? Get your butts going! I was so mad at them. I pulled up to the school at 8:29 don't think they made it to their class by 8:30. Oh well...they will live and learn.

Then I had a little over an hour to kill before we met our friends at the Mall play place. I hadn't had time to go get Monkey's allergy proof bedding yet so I thought I'd try wal*mart because they are cheap and online the stuff was expensive. I go in and sure enough they have a allergy certified pillow. Then I find the pillow covers and mattress covers. I *always* check the price of the things I am getting because I've been burned way too many times by that store and the price being higher at the check out. The pillow and mattress cover ring up right but the pillow cover rang up more then 5 dollars higher than it was listed in the back. She calls and they come up. They tell me that it is the right price. I stand firm that it isn't. We go back I show her the price tag with the words Allergen Standard and the price. She tells me that it isn't the price it has the wrong upc numbers. There is only one kind of allergen cover and three different sizes. She was trying to tell me that the standard size is more money then a king size pillow would be. She gets the manager to which I tell her that the price they are telling me is right isn't even listed on any of the tags. I was going to buy two one for Monkey and the other for Peanut. I have a feeling that she may have the same allergy and I figured it wouldn't hurt her to have one. Well the lady tells me that she will give one of them to me at the price marked on the tag but the other I have to pay the 5 extra dollars on. To which I said, "Then I will just take the one. Thanks." Stupid store. Now I do know that people move stuff and that they aren't always hung in the right spot that is why I always check. It was the only tag that said allergen on it in a standard size! I was just so shocked that they argued with me for one and for two that they had nothing to back up the price being what they said was the correct price.

Anyways, we go to the mall and have a great time playing. The Libby Lu stores are closing and there is one right next to the play place. Most stuff is marked 50% to 85% off. I asked my friend if she would watch Red while I ran in there real quick with Peanut. I found a few things for Christmas next year and it was super cheap. Yes, I am one of those people that bargain shop all year round for Christmas presents. But it helps not break the budget at the end of the year!

Today started Red's first day of gymnastics. We got there about 5 minutes early to realize that I had signed him up for the wrong class! Man, I hate when that happens. Apparently I signed him up for the 0 to 3 year olds mom and me class. He will be 4 soon and totally too old for this class. I was not expecting to have to be in the gym with him helping him with the equipment and holding/watching Peanut at the same time. We did make it through the 45 minutes and next week will be so much better. We worked it out with the teacher to get him into the Thursday class that is the drop off and watch type. The time for that class actually works out better for me too. I was very happy about that! My plan was the eat a snack while he was in class but since I was with him I wasn't able to eat. The class was from 11:15 to 12:00 and I was hungry afterwards so against my better judgement we made a golden arches stop for lunch. Looking on the bright side I didn't have to clean up :) The kids both went to bed right away and I started in on the cleaning and laundry. Red woke up right after I was done with my tasks and before I started this post he is watching a movie as not to wake his sister. I'm hoping that tonight is laid back and mellow we have only homework to do so we'll see...

Wow! I'm surprised they didn't just give it to you for the price it said - how ridiculus! I always watch the prices ring up, too!

In answer to your question - you go on the pill so they can get control of your cycle. They want you to produce a lot of mature eggs, but they don't want them to release before they get to them. I know, seemed weird to me at first, too!

Oh!

Well, first of all the same thing happened to me last week at Target. I picked up something that was clearly marked $19.99, and it rang up $40! So I got the manager called at customer service, and he said that someone restocked it in the wrong place. I told him that wasn't my problem. The manager actually said to me "give me a break it's Christmas". Grrrr. Anyway, I ended up getting it for the $19.99, but it doesn't work!!!! Now I have to return it. More grrrr.

Also, Red is going to love gymnastics! I'm still in the Mommy and me class with twins (I feel your pain.)

Cheers!
Deb
