Balls to the Wall.
It’s been a crazy weekend and week already and it’s only Tuesday. ACK! Here’s the rundown.
-Friday night B and I went to see Bill Burr at Zanie’s. This was my second time seeing him and I was stoked because he was funny as hell the first time around. Yeah, well he has lost some of his funny. He still made me laugh, don’t get me wrong here but not like the first time around. I found myself a few times sitting there not laughing and thinking “STOP F’n Yelling Dude!”. There was 12 of us that went to the show and we were all at a long table packed in like sardines. The long table next to us was full of young kids. They had to be only 21 if not there with a fake ID. They drove me fucking nuts the entire night. The dudes were all plaid shorts with button down shirts with the collars popped, the girls in their little bitty dresses and stupid headbands…that right there was enough to make me want to punch them in the back of the heads but oh no they had more to make this night fan-fucking-tastic. They are all drinking like crazy, I notice they started passing around a flask and popped collar toolbag would tell whoever he passed it to to “CHUG”. Shut the fuck up douchehole, we are at a comedy club not a freaking bar. The girls wouldn’t shut the fuck up through the entire show. I hear their annoying giggling and talking all night long. Full conversations going on through the whole thing. I wanted to punch the blonde in the back of her little fucking head. This said blonde gets up at one point to go to the restroom she comes back and sits down on popped collar dude’s lap. Of fucking course they are a couple. Her sitting on his lap put her head right in my view. I sat there for 2 minutes steaming and then reached up and tapped popped collar dude on the shoulder and told him she needs to get the hell out of my way. Of course she shoots me a look and I shoot one right back. She moves to the chair right next to him and now they want to make out. For the Love of God you fucking ninkapoops!
– as I am telling my Dad this story he reminds me that the Douchey McDouchersons that I just talked about most likely looked and talked about me as “that old woman” at the show. That’s fine with me.
-Saturday B and I kicked ass. Kicked Ass I say! We cleaned out the garage and threw a whole stake body truck full of shit away. Yes a whole freaking truck full of shit. Stuff that we thought we needed to keep, old furniture that was from my childhood that I thought I needed to keep. I finally came to terms with the decision to pitch it. Yes I could have kept it and passed it down to my kids but what the hell are they going to do with it? Most likely stick it in their garage and go through the same thinking that I went through. If we hadn’t touched it in the last year we pitched it. We went through cabinets and laundry room as well and what a difference it made. Man it feels good! Ahhh…Deep Breath…and exhale… We started at 10am and didn’t stop until almost 8pm. We were pooped.
-The reason for the clean out was to make room for my new stand up Freezer! WOO HOO! You know you’re getting old when you get excited for a freezer. Yep, that would be me! We have wanted one forever and after I started couponing we decided it must be done. My freezer is so pretty, I find myself going out and just looking at it. That right there people is just sad.
-Speaking of couponing, I have been at it for 4 weeks now and have saved almost $500 to date! That makes this momma happy happy happy! Yes I have a little stock pile started but nothing huge. Just enough that I don’t have to go buy stupid expensive crap for the next 3-4 months. I am stocked on cleaning supplies, girlie products, bathroom essentials, chicken nuggets, coffee, pop and a few other things.
A few of my store Scores:
-Boxes of cereal for $.65! (Cinnamon Toast Crunch) (Also a few other kinds for $1.25 a box)
-Betty Crocker sides for $.65 a box
-Playtex Tampons for $.99 an 18 count box!
-Resolve stain remover for clothes for $.50 a bottle
-Dial handsoap $.18 a pump
Yesterday I headed out to run my errands and had to stop by Publix. I went in with a short list of things I needed and my coupon binder. After scanning the aisles one by one with my coupons I found deals that I was expecting, so needless to say I bought more than what I had planned on but it was all stuff that I would need in the near future. I walked out of there spending $95 after saving $90! I’ll take that especially at Publix! They have some of the best deals if you do it right!
-Yesterday was another balls to the wall day. After running a shit ton of errands, the kids came home and we headed out to get E’s dance stuff that she needs for her first class tonight. We had to drive 45 minutes to the closest dancewear store. Her class is a combo class so she will be doing Ballet, Jazz and Hip Hop. So we needed a leotard, tights and ballet shoes for ballet and boy shorts, sports bra type top and jazz shoes for jazz. Thank god for Hip Hop they can wear sweats, t-shirt and tennis shoes because for the other two it cost me an arm and a leg. My daughter now needs to go get a job at the age of 6. She did dance 2 years ago with a different company and I didn’t like it and she just wasn’t ready so I pulled her from it. This time around it is with a new dance company and she is so excited about it. This dance company is amazing. Along with regular classes they also have competition teams, one of their dance teams won Nationals last year. How awesome is that? Needless to say I am stoked for her to start and I hope she really likes it and wants to stick with it and maybe eventually compete if she wants. (that might be one of my childhood dreams coming out through her but oh well, my parents would never let me be in dance when I was little and that is all I wanted to do)
So there is that. Aren’t you glad I shared all that? SO exciting, I know. 😛
