I Guess The Floor Does Not Pick Up After People??

I am assuming that anyway...going by all the crumbs, dirt, coupons, wrappers, leaves, etc. that have accumulated on the floor of my car!! I must admit...it has been about 3 weeks since the last vacuum and clean-up of the inside of my car...and boy Oh boy you can surely tell it needed it. I am almost too embarrassed to even post the before pics....but I will such a good sport and all!!

I know, I know, by the pics you would think we live in the car, wouldn't you?? If you can believe it....which I am sure it is hard by the pics you just peeked at....I promise the floors in my house are clean........much cleaner in fact, I do not lie!! Hey, if your in the neighborhood, you welcome to pop in and check on them yourself!! lol lol

Here are the floors after......they are spic and span clean:

I almost do not want to drive anywhere tomorrow....as I am sure you know with the kiddies in tow by tomorrow night they will not look so clean anymore!! Oh well, at least I have pics now of how clean my car can be....even if not for that long!! lol lol

I Was a Bit Skeptical......

Little Man attends preschool each day for a few hours. He is required to bring in a snack and drink each day for snack time. When he picked out his lunch bag at the beginning of the school year....none of the ones he liked had a thermos in them. This was my first lunch bag purchase ever...so I am not even sure if any lunch bag sold these days included a thermos or reusable drink container. Am I showing my age or what?? All I have to say is Plastic lunchboxes rocked....way back then anyway!!!

So I usually mix up his drinks for the week....water a few days, and a juice box a couple of the days as well. I do not ever send in milk as there is no refrigeration.......and I'd hate for it to spoil!! As I grabbed a juice box out of the fridge 2 nights ago to pack his snack...I noticed we were running a bit low on them.....I usually stock up when I can find a great sale on them (Which has been a little while)!!

This week ShopRite has new Apple & Eve Fruitables juice boxes on sale for $2.99 (8 pack). There was a $1.00/1 manufactures coupon in the 3/1 SmartSource insert. I had 3 coupons so I decided to purchase 3 packs of them at ShopRite earlier this week for just $1.99 a pack after coupons.

I was a bit skeptical....as Little Man loves juice, but Fruitables are made with a 100% juice blend that’s packed with fruits and vegetables. I was unsure as to whether his taste buds would care for the flavor or not....... I am a 100% juice only kind of buying Mom (No Kool Aid packs here)....but vegetable juice mixed in kind of made me wonder a bit??

So I picked him up from school yesterday, and guess what he told me as soon as I asked him "How was your day?" He said "Mom, that new juice in my lunch bag today was great"!! Yippee, I thought!! Then........
he proceeded to tell me his little friend sitting next to him had the same kind of juice box as him....just a different flavor!! Not sure if his little friend having one made him like it even more....but we just got done packing his snack for tomorrow, and he was excited to see that I was placing another Fruitables in there!!!

Just in case you were contemplating the Fruitables purchase.....it was kid passed here...with 2 thumbs up!!

Say Cheese You 2!!!

You Can see lots more Wordless Wednesday photos over at 5 Minutes For Mom.

Seriously, Who Would Want This Thing?

That is what I had been telling myself for almost 3 and a half years. You see we had moved into our current home then and the nice gentleman that sold us the place left us a few of his unwanted items behind for us to have........generous of him you say??

Where do I begin, the list a bit long.......
Big old wooden birdhouses scattered throughout the backyard
Patio pavers everywhere they should not be
Miscellaneous wooden rotted outdoor furniture
An old heater in the crawlspace(how they got it in there is beyond me?)
Oh and my favorite item, this...take a look at this beauty:

I have been calling it a BIG, heavy, cement rolly thing for the past 3 1/2 years...it's actual name...I haven't a clue!!

If I did not even know the name of it, along with about the 40 or so people I have asked over the years.....who would ever want it? It was just way too heavy for the trash men to take it....pick it up, that is!! What to do with it. It sat,

and sat,

and sat.......behind our shed for all this time, unused, and ugly...until.........

I decided it was time to try and part ways with this fella! I put a post up about 2 weeks ago on Craiglsist...in the FREE section, of course! And in fact, if they had a I'll pay you to take it Section....I would of gladly paid anyone to take it out of here!! LOL LOL

So just last week...a nice fella emailed me and said he could use this BIG, heavy,cemet, rolly, thingy and would love to come by and pick it up that day!! Yippee!! I must tell you I was doing the Happy dance!!

He came taht day, and took it away....he was happy to have it, and I was so very happy to see it go...far....far......far away!!!

So just in case you have a heavy cement rolly thing in your backyard, or something similar to it...here is the motivation you may need to list it on Craigslist.......there just may be someone who would love to have it...even if you do not know's it's name!!
