tiny weekend recap (aka i.HATE.ups)

saturday i was so excited for us to all head over to state college to the ups store and get my painting mailed off to it's new little home in LA...so we pulled into the store parking lot...so SO excited to get my painting mailed off (and a little sad to see it go).  i hand it to the girl working and she measures it and writes down all the info (my address and the shipping address)...rings it all up and tells us the price...$65!!!!!  oh yes, you read it correctly...$65!  here is the most awesome part of the story...i only charged $15 shipping.  so yeah, i basically lost money on selling the painting.  lesson learned and i'm fairly sure i will never EVER be using ups again...ever...

after that we were all just bummed...so we headed to texas roadhouse for lunch in hopes it would cheer us up.  um yeah, not happening...their food was seriously suckish...and i didn't like anything i got.  it was certainly no outback...

after that, still bummed, we headed to get groceries.  now THAT is something i love doing (i know, i'm a freak)...i just love hearing at the end "you saved ______ today".  and this trip didn't disappoint...i saved $74 between store sales and my millions of coupons.  LOVE coupons!

we headed home from the grocery store, hurried and put groceries away and did a quick clean sweep of the house.  after the cleaning i went and put my jammies on, turned "halloween" on the tv and just relaxed.  i sent joe out trick or treating with our littles...and i staid home to hand out candy (first time EVER for me).  it all was going great until i realized i was starting to creep myself out watching halloween while i was home alone.  i just kept thinking "please don't let any of the kids coming to my door be dressed like michael myers"...

sunday we missed church...miss jade still had a big cough going on.  actually she still doesn't have a voice either, poor thing.  we totally hung out at home ALL day sunday...i wore my jammies all stinkin day long and i loved it.  i needed that after how the day before was.

and once again, in case you missed it before...i'm not so much for ups...at all...

out for now
