Saving $$$

I love Albertsons when I have coupons. I really hope they don't go on strike, which is what the morning news tells me may be happening soon. Today I got the items I "needed" and this was the pleasant result:

Today I went to Khol's with a $10 "gift card" that came in the mail. It said it would work on everything including sales and clearance items but I had my reservations.
However, after scoping what I wanted out this past weekend I picked out the items I wanted and headed to the check out. The results were impressive by any standards:

And this afternoon I will be going to buffalo wild wings (my favoriteee) and using a coupon for 6 free wings. I'm bummed its not Tuesday because they have $.35 wings, but I want to show this amazing place to my friend so we are going to go watch the Padres game there. Admittedly, an hour drive to go use one coupon seems silly. However, the added perk is going to see my sister that lives down the street once I'm up there, her and all the furry kids! and since she is my long-distance running parter, perhaps we will go on a little run to work off the hot wings :)

Nail Biting.

I have bit my nails for the past 25 years.
A few months ago, this stopped (along with other bad habits and negative behavior).
 As soon as I noticed I hadn't been biting them, I got really excited and took this picture:

Not very pretty, I admit, but this was a HUGE deal for me.

Last week, after busting out some paint on these bad boys, I took this picture:

This is wonderful. Although since I have to keep them trimmed for school I am realizing that I have NO idea how to cut or file my nails, because I've never had to - I just used my chompers. But slowly I'm learning.
I also learned there's a beauty school down the road that does manicures for $5.00. Decisions, decisions.

Hot Oil, meet my Left Wrist.

Oh wow, the two of you did not get along well at all!!
I'm such a klutz.

But today the wost thing I  have to complain about is the burn on my wrist, and that's a pretty good day!
I'm working on a crochet project for my sister. And one for my mom. And a couple others.

I'll post some pictures when I figure out how.

I also ate fast food today, I don't do that very often anymore. so when I do, I am able to enjoy it (if I'm not overindulging). It was Del Taco, my personal favorite.

I played a couple games of raquetball today. I did so fantastic that some people who were watching asked me "oh, did you just start playing? how do you like it?" I like it a lot, actually, and I don't appreciate in your insinuation. You know what they say about assuming, right, stranger?

Alright I'm gonna go figure out this picture business.

Update: figured out how.

this is the wrap I already finished. the one I'm making now is version 2.0 - hopefully will look more like a shawl, less like a scarf and wont have such funny looking edges.

A Blog, by any other name might sound appealing.

I told someone I might start a blog. They said, "you should!" I said, "I will!". And I did.
Because these days, that's what I do. I throw my bright ideas around with people that love me, I get feed back, then I do what I say and say what I do.

And thus we have it, a blog.

A place for me to write down my thoughts where I can get feedback. A place for me to write about my adventures in this ride called life. For me to share my thoughts on the world around me and to just babble on in my own way.

Now Sister said there was a way to have different tabs and such... I'm gonna go figure this out. I have too much to share under one heading.
