I want more!
Well, maybe that's all I can handle because I actually went to bed at the same time as the kids last night which NEVER HAPPENS.
So I'm wondering... if I went to bed at 8:30 last night with the kiddos then how come I didn't just pop out of bed with my kiddos this morning at 7am? UGH. I thought I'd actually be all "morning person" today after a night like last night. No such luck, people...
But alas.....enter my own little coffee bar with 6 flavors of creamer to choose from for my morning coffee. Big smile. For those of you keeping count: YES I have added one since last time I mentioned my abundance of coffee creamer selection. And for those of you currently passing judgment....NO Peppermint Mocha and Chococlate Mint Truffle are not the same thing. And YES I need both because I can't decide which I prefer-- and it changes from day to day.
Today I chose neither and went with White Chocolate Caramel, another steller flav. I needed it because this morning was Pick N' Save morning, and if you don't have this grocery store in your area you are missing out.
Shopping there is a game for frugals like myself because they offer fun rewards like free milk with 6 boxes of cereal and "Turkey Points" that add up as you shop, and there's those exhilerating "Double Coupon" days that can just make your heart soar--but enough of that because today was not even a double coupon day nor did I receive a free milk....
But I needed to get about 3 items you can't find at Aldi (my #1 fav bargain store), ended up with about 8 other items I figured I "needed" (why does that always happen?!), and one of those items got me into a little bit of trouble...
So much trouble, in fact, that I had to be rescued by fire fighters in the produce section of Pick N' Save. People, I'm not making this up. Here I am, shopping along with 3 of my children, and I decide that if I bought some tomatoes than I'd be able to serve tacos later this week and who doesn't love tacos?! Enter this beast:
Ever used one of these things? Yeah......all fun and games for the kiddos inside but as a mom trying to lug this thing around the store you can get yoursef into some real jams. Which I did on this particuar morning.
I jammed the cart into the tomato aisle and couldn't maneuver the thing out. Enter firefighters (fellow customers of Pick N'Save at the time)--who were busy talking about this souffle-thing they were going to be making in the firehouse later that week and the cat they just rescued (okay, I couldn't resist the fireman joke right there)
but ANYways they noticed my battle with the cart and offered to steer my kids to safety. Whew. Disaster avoided. My kids are no longer stuck amongst the red veggies.....or are they a fruit? Either way, I would like to give a shout out to the firemen who saved my children's lives. I'll stop with the cat jokes. After this post, okay? And do I get any mom points here for appeasing my younger boys and taking that humongous cart in the first place? thank you.
hope you're all having a super day......whatever your adventures are!
