So that’s how much per pen?

Following up on the follow-up to my Onyx pen ordeal, I visited one of the suggested sites from the Sanford lady’s email. I found a great deal on the micro flavor of the pens, thirty-seven cents each! So I picked out 9 of them. The total for the pens was $3.33. Sweeeet. Unfortunately, the cheapest […]

The Price of Being Lazy

Junior eats at least one banana a day. I am constantly buying bananas, because, well, it’s not like you can stock up on them. We were out this morning. He HATES going to the grocery store these days, and I just sometimes would rather not have to fight with him about it. So I decided […]

401K, we hardly knew ye

I poked my nose into the tracking site for one of my 401Ks, and saw that since the last statement (period ending June 30th) it has lost 14% of its value. AGAIN. I’m soooo sad. It’s not like there was enough in there to actually retire on, but hell, that’s painful. And now I’m afraid […]

More on the Great Pen Search

Here’s what the Sanford (Uni-ball) people had to say, in case anyone else out there is looking for those pens (and I know you are…I see the search words you use to get to my site. Dang, those fireworks pens got me a LOT of traffic.) You may want to try your local Sav-on Drug […]

High Point of My Saturday

That would be when my sister ended up with cat poop completely covering the bottom of her shoe. It allowed to follow her around the grocery store (after she’d cleaned up) saying “Do you smell something?” very loudly. Heh.
