Overwhelmed

Tidbit Tuesday

Tonight is my sons Jr. High Orientation.

He is already in some Jr High courses through virtual classes and  we need to try to plan his schedule since he has already completed some of the courses he should be taking next year.

So yesterday I was asked the question by the counselor, “What track are you planning for your child in high school? Are you going to be planning for AP, IB or just some advanced courses”. I swear you could probably hear crickets

cricket

I was like Um, Well, Um, I Don’t Know.

He is not even out of Elementary school. He is not even a teenager. Although his hormones have already started to rear their ugly head I have no clue what he will be like in 3 years or if he will even want to be in advanced anything.  He will probably be thinking about girls, what he is going to be doing this weekend, or how he is going to pull a fast one past Mom and Dad.

Ughhh…Decisions, Decisions. Anyone else feel like their kids are pushed to grow up to fast?  I don’t remember having to make all these big choices when I was going into Jr. High.

Parenting…Most difficult job you will ever have.

Makeup Monday-Milani Blush and Lipsticks


Friday before last CVS was running a sale on their Milani  makeup
Buy one get one 1/2 off blushes and lipsticks were marked down to $3.69
So I got two blushes (Luminosa and Berry Amore) and a lipstick in Dulce Caramelo

Then when I got my receipt I had a coupon for $2 off beauty product of $5 or more and $2 reward bucks so when I went back last week and  I picked up
Nude Crème that Melmphs was talking about on her YouTube Channel and I paid a whopping….. wait for it……$1.88….SCORELaughing out loud

They are on my list

ththsoapbox2

This happened about two weeks ago and it still ticks me off.

I placed a large order with Aeropstale during one of their 1/2 off shorts + free shipping for orders over $100 promotions.

The guys needed shorts so I wanted to get the order in Saturday since the offer expired Sunday.

Well I have my Iphone, Kindle, Computer near me all weekend.  I check my emails all the time. Not once did I get a special promotion on Sunday about a $40 off a order of $150.

No I got that email Monday morning saying it went through Sunday @10 pm.  The promotion ran from Sunday at 7pm-6am Monday.

I got the email at 7 am when I woke up Monday Morning. ErrrrrrSteaming mad

Had I got the email Sunday before or at 7pm when the promotion started while my order was still in processing I would have cancelled and repurchased so I could get all the discounts.

I contacted Aeropostale and was told sorry my email server did not send it thru in time and there was nothing they could do.  REALLY even the low man on the totem pole managers in the stores can do better then that.

So they are now on my LIST of stores I am not shopping at for a while…I won’t say never cause I have a preteen and I know he will want clothes from there, but I will try to sway him toward Hollister, American Eagle, Abercrombie and Old Navy or anywhere besides Aeropstale.

Oh I forgot to mention I got this free pair of butt ugly glasses

Whoever thought these were cute needs to be fired ASAP.

My receipt off the website said these are $19.50. Who in the heck would pay that for these.  I would have rather that $19.50 been taken off my order.

Okay stepping off my soapbox now.

Have a wonderful Saturday.

Weekly Wrap-up

weekly wrap-up 3

Tilda had a great Birthday Monday

IMG_5136

She was not a happy camper that I woke her up to see her gifts, but she soon turned that frown upside down.

IMG_5141IMG_5145

 

Tuesday was our most eventful day this week we had a sick puppy

Pitiful

photo (5)

He was not thrilled I pried back his covers.

So Mr. Matt has been on a rice and chicken broth diet all week.

Then the school called and said Bub had messed up his neck while adjusting his backpack on the way to class.  So I said give him some Motrin and if it is not to bad send him back to class because I am picking him up in a bit for a appt.

I quick get Matt squared away, jump in the shower and head to the school to get him for his Ortho appt and see what this whole messed up neck business is.

Poor kid had sat in the clinic for two periods with ice on his neck after they gave him the Motrin…Only called me once..WTH????Baring teeth smile←Not A Happy Mamma.

So we get home so he can scrub those toofuses and head out to the Ortho and call the Chiro on the way to set  up a appt.

In the waiting room and having his photo shoot (probably not the most comfortable thing to do when your neck is killing you)

photo (7)photo (8)photo (9)

He has such a pretty smile.

I was hoping for just bottom braces since his top are pretty much perfect if you ask me, but his bottom teeth are crowded and he has a over bite so full set. When they told me how much his braces were gonna cost I about passed slap out in the office.

We went to Sweet Frogs for some frozen yogurt to drown my sorrows. I love there frog logo. I have a huge frog just like it from back in the day when they used to be sold with hello kitty stuff.  It is probably squished at the bottom of my sons closet. 

sweet frog

Then off to the Chiro…Sorry no Camera.

His neck is still messed up so he has been to the Chiro one more time and we are going again today.Sad smile

Well one pooch sick was not enough. Ginger decided to join the party yesterday.

Pitiful numero dos ← and yes I mean that in both senses of that phrase. EwwwCrying face

Rice and chicken broth diet for her as well.

Tilda was getting jealous soo

photo (6)IMG_5149

She pretended to be all pitiful so she could get in on the sympathy action.  She did toss her cookies once but I think that was just a normal cat thing.

I also joined BzzAgent and am hoping my new

AMDRO® POWERFLEX® PEST & WEED SYSTEM

campaign kicks these weeds to the curb. They are spreading like wild fire.

I will keep you posted.

Have a great weekend everyone and keep your fingers crossed everyone gets well in my house.Fingers crossed

Thumbs Up Thumbs Down Thursday


Yesterday I was looking for a really pretty metallic like pink nail polish and after looking through all the choices at Wally World, Hellmart, whatever you wish to call it I picked up the Hard Candy nail polish in Crush On Pink.  (my son actually made the hard call there were to many pretty colors.)
LOVE

Definitely a thumbs up 2
I used this color on all my nails accept my ring finger.  I tried out the Sation in Of Course I’ll Call You I got from my April Ipsy box and put Sally Hansen’s Strobe Light on top of it.  Very pretty combo I think.
IMG_5175
Look at the pretty color and not the fact I stink at painting my nails Winking smile. Why do I get it all over the place?
My sons thumbs up 2 for this week is the Jimmy Dean Delights.  He loves them.
IMG_5178
But he gave the big thumb down2 to the regular Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches.
IMG_5179
I guess I should be very pleased he loves the healthier version more.

So what are your thumbs up and thumbs down for the week?
