  1. Chips - all kinds but especially real salty ones Chips & salsa French fries - hot, fried, slightly crispy. Oh and need salt on them & ketchup too but especially the salt Donuts Oreos - double stuffed
  2. When we were looking for a van, we went to 1 dealer that kept giving us the run around on price. He kept asking what did I want my payment to be. So with a very serious expression I told him $20 maybe $25. He laughed. I sat there with a straight face and said "you were only worried about what I "wanted" my payment to be so I told you." They also kept pushing a van we didn't really care for. We ended up not buying from them. Next dealer had a van I liked and had done research on. After test drive we sat down to discuss it with the dealer. I had some questions (safety & motor related). The dealer kept kinda blowing me off and turning to dh to talk. Dh looked at the guy and said "if you are the least bit interested in selling that van you better talk to her. It will be her van and she know exactly what she wants and has done a lot of research." That got a surprised look and an "I am so sorry" Dealer started paying attention to me after that.
  3. That reminds me of when I went to see about the price of a new phone. The girl kept telling me I could get the phone for $x a month. She wouldn't tell me how many payments it was or the outright price. Finally when I asked "I want to purchase the phone outright today, no payments HOW much is the phone?' She looked at me as if I had gone crazy and said "why would you want to do that? It is $x a month" 😵 I left.
  4. I took 3 smallish boxes of books to a sale. Came back with 1. Didn't make much money but got rid of some stuff. Maybe this beautiful weather will put me in the spring cleaning mood.
  5. Corelle is my favorite. I have a couple different sets but when pieces broke or I felt we needed more of a particular piece (plates, bowls etcl.) I pick up pieces at goodwill and yard sales. I am weird and don't care if they match.
  6. UGH forgot about Easter. My guys are really to big for a basket but I like to get them something to go in their reusable baskets.
  7. Not doing so great here. Ds1 bday is this month (presents, cake, ice cream & bday meal out), bought both dss some new clothes, had to buy meat (been mostly eating out of freezer), ordered some graduation stuff for ds2, ordered some graduation proofs, needed gas in the car (holy cow). Will need to order graduation invitations and stuff and ds2 birthday is coming up too. Oh and car tags and dr bill all coming up. Geez. Good news -- the clothes I bought, I had a coupon and this store is cheaper than most. The meat I bought was on sale and I got the photo proofs 1/2 off. Everything still added up but at least I got some deals. Going to be taking some stuff to a curriculum sale. Hope to sell a lot. Won't make much as most is marked cheap but anything will help.
  8. And sometimes you can experience all 4 seasons in the same day LOL
  9. Haven't gotten completely back in the groove but I have at least been adding stuff to the give away pile lately.
  10. Ds will not eat eggs either. "Unless they are in cake or something" - his words LOL He will eat oatmeal but doesn't really like it. If we have it to often he will just skip breakfast. I have tried to hide them in things like breakfast burritos but he will taste them or see them and stop eating. If I fix breakfast burritos his have meat an cheese and cooked diced potatoes. He eats a lot of supper foods for breakfast. Pizza is his favorite. I have been known to cook a pizza after supper and then he can eat on it the next few days for breakfast. Anything on a bun is good, chicken, cheeseburger, pork chop, steak & of course sausage or bacon. Chicken nuggets are good. Sometimes I cook up extra meats at supper for the next day or one afternoon I will cook some meats for breakfast. He also likes things like hashbrown casserole. I make it the night before and sometimes with some form of meat mixed in. I know not healthy but I try to balance it out more later in the day if he eats this for breakfast.
  11. Started the month off spendy. Went to the store yesterday and bought some little items needed for upcoming projects. Geez those little bitty items were $$.
  12. I just realized this is April. In a couple weeks will be ds birthday. I told myself back in the fall I would NOT be doing the wild and frantic "flight of the bumblebee" hiding stuff and cleaning before the grandparents came over. I told myself the house would be cleaned out (mostly) and just have to do a quick general clean. Uh huh that happened. I think I just got my swift kick in the butt to get moving. Geez
