you better not pout, you better not scream@thebigman's arrival, fa la la la la, la la kA CHING

busy day today, armed with my shopping lists, coupons, news paper ads and wallet I slowly made my way to work stopping at 6 count them SIX Walgreens stores.
I worked, slowly, is it Christmas yet?
Stopped at Fry's, CVS, CVS, came home, visited with Mr. and Mrs. Clause - (more below)
After taking home my patron saint of babysitters, Courtenay, we stopped at one more CVS. Not because it's fun - heavens no! but because they were all out of their one day advertised specials. but I still think we did pretty good.
below is my loot: street value of $330.37 I spent $68 cash - minus my Walgreens reward money of $20 and my CvS Bucks of $19 = (which means all of this cost me)..... $29.45!!! Yes it did suck up a good portion of my ride to and from work, not to mention planning at home, but today it all feels worth it.
as for our Nightmare before Christmas/It's a wonderful LifeThe Clause's were wonderful! Santa was at least 6'3 if not taller, as for Jessica (that's the Missis's name) she was maybe 5'5, with a beautiful dress - she was PERFECT! (Santa obviously was tired of the flash in his eyes I guess)
Any whoo, when Jocie saw them at the door she ran off screaming "NO" at the top of her lungs, while Harry settled in for a good cuddle with the most beautiful Mrs. Clause ever!
Thank you to them for the reindeer food and company, you made our night. It's true Jojo might need therapy in the future, but you can't blame yourself. blame her mother, she will.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

wow, you make me miss the coupon days. I know what you mean about the time it takes to pull all that off. It totally feels worth it because after all, it was a game right?
