Ok I just found my new way to do couponing. I can load the coupons onto my card hello genius. Now I don't have to worry about leaving them at home and all that cutting out and stuff. I tried and ended up saving $700. It was a pain though and I spent a ton of money too. So I am gonna try this and see what happens.

hope the links work if not abbreviate softcoin pgesaver and cellfire.

Thanks Stephanie.

So we decided to head down to Mom and Dads condo. I love coming down here. No pressure to clean the whole house do all the laundry see the weeds that need to be pulled.. Relax. well other than trying to keep the kids quiet, Tom is used to it but Brady and Jake are not.

When we got here there was a fox playing in the backyard. Jakey wanted to eat it but we didn't think that was prudent.

Clark got home last night just in time for my girlfriend to come pick me up and we went and met some other friends for dinner. It was great conversation and luckily the restaurant wasn't crowded. We got there at 7:30 and stayed until at least 11. Chatting chatting chatting. The ladies I was with were friends from the first playgroup that Tom and I joined when I stopped working at Eddie Bauer. The kids are growing up and two of us have moved away but we can talk like we just got together last week. It was so fun. Even had the same dickering over the bill when we were all done. Fun times.

Here's to friendship. Cheers.

So we had our corn it was doing good the weeds weren't too bad. Then the house was sold at auction. The gentleman who bought is fixing up the inside and then will flip it. Can you imagine living in a house with only one bathroom. It is kinda like living without the ability to have cable probably. You can do it but it isn't easy.

So I digress, the corn is gone. The backhoe came and ripped it all out yesterday. He had an audience of about 5 kids watching from the big toy, with his big cigarette hanging out of his mouth. Lovely. So I had to change the sprinkling system so it would stop spraying the now dirt. My lovely very tall neighbor came over and helped, Thank you.

The new flipper wants to lay down a sprinkling system and sod. Great Idea but he has a bit of a flooding problem in his yard. So I tried to explain that it isn't from the sprinkling systems of the neighbors it is when it rains and snows there is a bit of a flood in the back yard. So I was able to find some pics that I had taken of the snow last year and was able to show him the areas that are problematic. I hope it helps. Oh well. I hope the people that buy it are happy with what he does. Hopefully they will want a fence and then things will be hunky dory. But then I won't get my trees so oh I don't know. Life is always changing and that what makes it so fun.
