Fun times at the mall....

We are making the transition from double stroller to single, and it sucks because we only have a little measly umbrella stroller. You can not cram all your stuff underneath, plus, when your child gets out and everything is hanging on the handles at the back, the whole stroller tips over. Crappy deal. We have thought about getting a wagon, but it won't fit into our tiny little car and really, who walks around the mall with a wagon?

The kids pretty much ran wild around the mall this afternoon. It was fun though because we found "Famous Seamus" from Shine FM and he gave us some pretty great prizes. Yay. A phone card, some cards for tea at Second Cup, and a $10 gift certificate for a wrap store. Yum!

Oh ya...

I forgot to mention that I managed to get a LOT of the crayon out with a new stain remover. STAINS R OUT. You can get it at Home Depot. Amazing stuff. Even old set in stains.

Sheesh....

I am at the library and typing like a madwoman. I only have 15 minutes left on my time limit. Make that 14. Some kid is distracting me by howling out all his concerns for the day right in my ear (no, it is not my son).
I am quite enjoying the library as it offers so many things I forget about. Free trials of CD's and at some branches we have found dvds.
My amazing husband already has our taxes done for the year-can you believe it? Yay! Oh crap 11 minutes left.....
Um...the pressure to blog something whitty is killing me here, but I am so thankful that you are all hanging in there and keep coming around. I have to admit, I debated stopping altogether, but I feel too bad about letting the connection go. I love you guys. Well, my time is almost up and I still need to publish. Sorry for such a short entry.

Well, I replaced the kids clothes for free...

I had credit at some stores and was waiting for a rainy day. Well I shopped and got most of their clothes between 30-70% off. Thank goodness for that. I have found a stain remover that is lightening the stains...so we will see over time if it takes them all out.
I replaced Steve and my clothes with the new JOE brand from superstore. They are actually not bad. Their clothes used to suck, but not anymore. I got some great new yoga pants that replaced my gigumbus old ones-much more comfortable.
Things have gone through my washer and dryer before and I have always managed to get the damage undone. Chapstick, gum, pens, pencil crayons etc.
I did not have to spend a fortune on new clothes, but I did alright. It was actually a blessing (somewhat) because I needed smaller clothes anyways.

We may be going naked soon...

Kids! I went about my day today doing normal stuff like cleaning and cooking and I started my laundry around 9am to find a doozy of a mess. Emma had been playing with the dryer and her crayons a few days ago. Oh the mess it created. $200 worth of Old Navy clothes plus another $100 worth of odds and sods.
I spent $25 on cleaning products at Home Depot today only to find out that they don't work. However I did get a free newspaper.
I don't even want to try to clean the inside of my dryer. I am just ill.
When I showed Emma all the clothes that were ruined she said "Ya, I put crayons in the dryer. He he he. Those clothes are a mess."
Gee thanks Emma.

Finally I am back for a minute...

I know how annoying it is to click into a blog and find that the blogger has not updated in a l-o-n-g time. Sorry about that. I am still suffering with this damn tooth, but I am alive.

I have so much to blog and not enough time to do it.

The kids and I were at the hospital the other day (just routine stuff for Oliver) and we pulled into the parking lot, I told Emma the lot was full and we might have to park far away on the street. She said "Don't worry, Jesus will find us a parking spot."
We found a spot and Emma started to pray right away. "Thank you Jesus...!"

We were out today and got Emma's ears pierced. Lovely. She was a gem and cried for a moment and now is still milking it. Kids hey.

Got some great stuff in the mail last week. A free lunch at Moxies because I wrote and told them how gross thier washrooms were one day when Steve and I went on a date.
I also got two free coupons for Michelinas entrees. Plus a CASE of free KoolAid eletrolite drink. Fun times. I ended up saving $20.00 on my grocery bill.
Anyways...I am going to go check up on blogs now.
