Shampoo for year and half

So my shampoo and conditioner is being discontinued at Walgreens in the smaller bottles. So the product that cost $8.00 for 13 ozs was being sold for $2.19 or $3.99 and the travel size for $1.38 was $0.50 each.  Once these are gone I will have to pay $15.00 for the 33 oz size.

Breaking down the cost, I saved over half at $0.17 on sale and $0.45 regular price.

The girl at costmetics thought I was crazy because  I got 39 bottles medium and 13 of travel. I can officially say that I have at least a  years supply of shampoo and conditioner. That's blasting Romney out if the water compared to his 3 months supply. Hahaha!!!

Buying like this reminds me of my SIL and her search for my mom's discontinued perfume. 16 bottles or so one year and 6 or so this past Christmas.  What were the numbers Carrie?

Daddy Ray & Champ

Daddy Ray came this past week. Champ got to come in more. They both had a great time.  Especially Champ since he got to get on the couch.

I got my SPOTLIGHT magazine from work this morning. I enjoyed reading Rob Falvo’s article, “Are You PURSUING Your Goals & Dreams?”  Below are a few tips I took from his message…..

·         Pursuit!  Dreams begin to crystallize into reality when they are pursued.
·         You can “think positively” all day long and all year, but Positive Action is what counts.
·         Reaching for your dream is behaving and moving; it is action that shortens the distance between you and your goal.
·         Reaching for what you want increases the odds, immediately and drastically, of getting it
·         You can’t change your life for the better by being only positive.  You must move on your dreams.  You must leave the cover of safety   You must place your trust in action.  Always remember  Matthew 7:8:  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, it will be opened.

The scripture quoted is my favorite scripture of all time.  We have to give it our ALL and then give it to God to make the rest.  It is your responsibility to MAKE the LEAP!

I finally figured it out. It took me over a year but I kept trying. That's what is important, right?  That i kept trying. So what am I unstuck about? Well, I don't get stumped too often when it comes to computer stuff, but i was when it came to this wireless printer. I couldn't figure it out until this week. Oh, do I feel so accomplished!  I can now sit in the den and print to the office.  Now office work is much easier now and has been a very successful.  Glad the week is over, but excited that I am much more organized.

Champ at the Ball Field (Dec 2011)

We took Champ to the football field but he acted complete whacked out. Champ just ran around and around the football field trying to get out. We didn't like being at the football field. The next day Billy asked Conner if he wanted to take Champ out to play. Conner responded with, not if we are going back to the football field because he acted weird there."

Resting after all that exercise of running around the football.

Protecting his owner.

Painting "Champs" dog house (12/2011)

We painted Champs, dog house one Saturday.
It didn't take too long either.
I was worried it would take forever.
Conner LOVES Champ!
I just wish I had a picture of Conner in the dog house with Champ.
Conner will get into dog house with Champ.
He hasn't fallen asleep in there yet.

Daddy Ray

Daddy Ray getting ready to get on his horse.
We are not sure what his horses name was.
He called it Herman too.
So either there were two horses named Herman or
we didn't know one of them.

Conner's Excursion

Conner got the BEST pictures of all.
He was the only person behind me on the trail.
He did an awesome job of driving his horse, Thunder.

Billy's Horse Time

Here are a few pictures of my Hunk, Billy!
His horses name was Killer and was not very nice. Killer didn't want Herman to pass him on the trail. So, that is why I have pictures of the backs of heads.
