Hell has frozen over

I called my mom this morning and shared that with her, as my son has slept until 8:30 for the past 2 mornings! Maybe he knew I needed that extra sleep? Whatever the reason I am definitely not complaining.

After picking up a repo for work and eating lunch with Jeff and Daniel at Cici's Pizza, I headed to Meijer's to do the weekly shopping. I got Daniel a Cars bathrobe for Christmas and used the $4 Santa bucks for today, for a total price of $15. Now for the great deal I got.....I have been planning on getting Jeff a deep fryer of some sort for Christmas. I made him get rid of his Fry Daddy when we moved, as it was NASTY. I promised I would get him another, but have failed to do so as of yet. I saw one on sale a few weeks ago, and that was when the idea of getting him one for Christmas was born. I have been pricing them, and the one I wanted to get him was between $40 and $50 depending on where I got it from. I found one on sale at Meijer's today for $29.99. $20 cheaper than normal price, plus I could use the $6 Santa bucks, so I paid $23.99!!!!!!! YES!!!!!

I also discovered that Meijer's carries all the supplies needed to make your own laundry detergent. So I made up a batch today. I will let you know how I like it after I do laundry tomorrow.

While I was making the detergent, I was half way listening to the Auburn vs Alabama game. Jeff is happy AL won. I am not happy. Auburn looked horrible, and we lost for the first time in 6 years.

We trekked downtown to the Christmas parade and spent 2 hours freezing our buns off. Well I was some what warm, Jeff was the one who was cold. No baby a long sleeve T shirt in 40 degree weather won't keep you warm for long. Daniel loved it. He got to give Spiderman a high five!

Now we are all back home relaxing. Daniel is content to watch a movie in his room, Jeff is watching football, and I am catching up on all my blog reading I have missed in the past few days. (I might not have commented but I have read them.)

I can't wait to hear how the laundry detergent works! I hope your work stuff slows down soon.

Glad you were able to get some extra sleep!

OMG, those Fry Daddies and Babies do get really gross. I threw ours away years ago. If I want to deep fry something, I just use a saucepan and then put it in the dishwasher.
