Brusha Brusha Brushaaaaa!


As I sit here typing this, I notice I have the worst morning breath. My mouth tastes gross. I usually brush my teeth first thing, but the kid is in the bathroom. It's going to be a short day at work today, as most Sundays are.

I have little red cherry tomatoes. I will actually be able to pick some today. I still don't have any zucchini or cucumbers. I have picked four or five peppers and my large tomato plant has yet to produce any buds.

Took the kid yesterday to Best Buy so he could finally spend his gift card from February. He purchased a CD - Ludacris, the newest one, I have been informed. He also bought the SpongeBoB Squarepants Complete Season 3. He's a big little kid.

After Best Buy we went to Old Navy. They are having a huge 50% off summer sale. I only spent $105 and got the following for the kid:

8 designed short sleeve shirts
2 polo style shirts
3 shorts - 2 jean, 1 cargo
2 pairs of flip flops
2 boxer shorts
3 pairs of socks

Each item if you average it out was $5. Jackpot! I love finding bargains when I clothes shop. The kid is quite happy with the purchases.

We have not made it yet to see Transformers, but now I am kind of excited about seeing Harry Potter. I am a fan of the movies, having never read a single book, unlike my friend Annabel. She has read them all and rereads them when a new one comes out. She said once that the books are way better than the movies. I will trust her judgement, as I don't want to be disappointed when I do see the movie. Most books I read that have a movie to follow, well, it's just not up to par. Perhaps I will save reading the books until after the movies are done. These current actors are starting to get old though. The movies better hurry.

Okay, so I promised myself I would be out of the house by 9:30 this morning. I need to leave now if I am going to read some blogs and brush my teeth before then! Brusha Brusha Brusha!

Have a great day at work today, abbagirl. It sounds like you did hit the shopping jackpot---that's always good costs so damned much to keep kids in clothes and shoes and stuff these days...

Ah, SpongeBob, Squidward, and Patrick. They still make me laugh like a little kid when I catch them on. Congrats on the little garden. Cherry tomatoes are so sweet and tasty.

That is so funny, Ludacris and Sponge Bob! He is really on the cusp isn't he? My step daughter is 10 and she's starting to get to a similar point. Crazy to see them grow cause I never noticed when I did it:)

Congratulations on both the frugal finds and on the garden! I hope you enjoy the fruits of your labor.

You did get a great deal at Old Navy! Just 12 more days until the next Harry Potter book! I do think you should read the books and you won't necessarily be disappointed by the movies. I understand that given time limits you just can't put everything in. I still enjoy the movies very much. You should also read the Janet Evanovich series. After meeting you, I really think those books are right up your alley!

What a bargain! You're my kind of shopper!

I only read the first 2 Harry Potter books. I really liked them, but never read on. I've never seen the movies because I don't want to see them out of order. Do I take the time to catch up before a new one comes out? NO!
