Pharmacy Etiquette

Dear Walmart,

I'm sorry for my lack of etiquette at your pharmacy. You see, I'm thrifty. And...well...RiteAid gives me $25 gift cards for transferred prescriptions, and as luck would (not) have it, I was in need of two prescriptions today. So instead of just paying $4 for each of them when I dropped off my prescription at your pharmacy, I left your store, called RiteAid, and had them transfer them to their pharmacy. Not only did I have 2 coupons for $25 gift cards, the pharmacy tech also gave me two $5 off coupons. I came away with both prescriptions, $50 in RiteAid gift cards, and paid only $10.

I know that you probably cringe every time I bring in a prescription because you know that inevitably I will have RiteAid call you to transfer it. I just can't resist free money. I'm sure it's a huge pharmacy faux-pas to pretend like I'm going to pay you for your work and for your drugs but again, the gift cards...they're just too much to pass up.

I apologize again for teasing you. Thank you for all your other cheap items that I buy on a regular basis.

Need a Car?

I'm selling my 1989 Toyota Camry. 185k miles. This is a good car, I loved it while I had it.
Is it in perfect condition? No, but it is a good car and would be perfect for someone who needs a car to get from A to B with good gas mileage (mid to high 20's mpg in town, higher on the freeway).
The car runs well but the front CV axles both need to be replaced before it will pass inspections. (It will cost you around $350.) The right tail light also needs to be fixed. My hubby accidentally backed into someone's hitch so it bent the metal casing and knocked the light out. The light is still intact except for one small sliver but just needs to be put back on and have a new bulb installed and it's fine. The only other issue is that the trunk doesn't stay open on it's own. It opens and closes fine, just has to be held up.

Everything else in the car is in good working order. Some dings on the body but that's expected with a 20 year old car. Even as is, the KBB value is $1065. It needs those things fixed so I hope my price is pretty reasonable. Asking $500 OBO, and at this point, I'll consider any offer you bring.


Automatic Transmission
Power Steering
Power Windows & Locks
Air Conditioning
Tilt Steering
Cruise Control
AM/FM radio. It actually has an Eclipse MP3/CD player but it won't play cd's anymore. Probably fixable too, I just never cared too much when it stopped working.

Let me know if you have any questions or are interested. Thanks!!

ANOTHER New Swim Suit!

I couldn't resist! I convinced myself that I NEEDED another suit since we're going to Cancun in November so I went into Layers Clothing again and found a suit I really liked. I didn't buy it at first because the pattern is exactly the same as my other one and they didn't have the right size for me. The next day it was all I could think about so I went back in and they had a different size that I didn't think would fit but it did so VOILA! Suit #2.

And I really do think I'm cuter than this model! ;)

New Swim Suit!

Hello! Wow, two months since I've posted on this blog, eh? Nice.

Quick update: I got my first legitimate birdie in golf on June 13 on hole 13 at Glenmore. It was so awesome!!! I drove onto the green (it was a short par 3) and then made like a 30 foot put for the birdie! I was SO EXCITED!!! I've never had a birdie before, especially without cheating. ;)

Also important: I got a new swim suit!!! I love it! I got it at Layers Clothing thanks in part to Whitney, who I got together with at Cold Stone yesterday. She told me they had some cute suits and that they were all 20% off. So, I checked them out online and then went in and got this beauty. And yes, I look pretty much as hot in it as this model does. LOL

This morning at about 7:16 a.m. there was an earthquake in Wells, Nevada that had a magnitude of 6.0. I didn't know about it until I was driving to work at 7:30 and heard the news on the radio. They were saying people in my area felt it but I thought to myself, "Hmm...I didn't feel it."

Well once I was at work, I called my dental insurance company to check our benefits (Adam is getting a root canal today, poor guy) and the lady there asked me if I felt it. I said no but she said they felt it at her office, which is not too far away from where I live.

The more I thought about it though, the more I think I really did feel it. I nurse Jayci every morning at 7:00 a.m. before I leave for work and this morning while I was nursing her and sitting in the rocking chair I felt some weird movements. I thought at first that it was just Jayci's feet kicking, but then I thought to myself that her feet kicking wouldn't be rocking my whole chair. It was like it was being rocked or shaken by someone. I also thought it felt a lot like it did in November when there were construction workers in our yard digging manholes for the development that is going in behind our house. They had a huge trackhoe in our yard right next to the house and it would shake the whole house sometimes. It was a weird feeling, but it didn't last for very long and I didn't think much more about it...until that conversation with the lady at the dental insurance company.

So, you might think I'm crazy, but I really do think I felt the earthquake. Weird, huh?
