My Sister Said I Need to Update...
I am not really sure if I still have any readers out there, (no comments to speak of) but I guess I don't really blog just for others to see anyway.
My life has been busy lately. I have been busy re-doing oldest' room since he moved away. The temptation was there to knock down a wall and make our bedroom much bigger, but instead we opted for some very nice used furniture, and a few new items to turn it into a guest room. We still want to move my treadmill into that room, but I have a very large treadmill that will need to be partially dismantled before it can fit down the hall. That room has actually taken up quite a few of my evenings. Oldest came home last weekend and waded through much of his earthly possessions and we threw out quite a lot. I cannot imagine where he got his pack-rat tendencies from. (ha)
The picture shows some of the furniture we bought. The chair is actually a single hide-a-bed, and the ottoman lifts for storage (great for the bedding). The table by the chair was also part of my used furniture deal, as were two others. I bought the lamp at Big Lots. The little desk that is in the corner of the picture was also purchased at Big Lots. I have since re-arranged and tweaked the rest of the room. This might not be my fabric of choice, but the price was right and the furniture is in excellent shape.
I have also been busy loving Walgreen's this week. I have made money over and over again in my various transactions. It is so fun to go in, spend $8.00 and have them give you a $10.00 store coupon. I have "made" about $12.00 this week on my deals. Plus the good thing is that I have not spent one penny out of pocket to do it. I have used my Walgreen's rebate money that was put on my gift card each time. Nothing out of pocket, plus a profit works for me. The thing is I have purchased a wide rage of items including several grocery items.
Other than that, our lives are pretty much the same. I have really been wrestling with God on some issues lately, but that is reserved for another post. I just don't know if I am ready to be so raw right now.
