Free Grill

I am so excited that I have to share this blessing. Dan and I had this air purifier that didn't really do what it was supposed to so we decided to take it back to Home Depot and see if they would give us our money back or at least a store credit. They did, even though we had used it. I was shocked and very excited because I now could buy a grill.

I am the griller at my house. Ok, I'm obsessed with grilling and need to attend group meetings! Our grill which was donated to us was 9 years old and it had decided that it wanted to go to grill heaven. Yes, it died. Not only did it die but it decided that it would stop working while I was in the middle of making Mr. Clean Steak and Salmon. I was so mad because I don't like to cook steak or fish on the stove or in the oven.

So, We headed outside to look at the grills and they were on sale big time. I picked out the one I wanted and we still had money left over to buy Mr. Clean a work coat that he has wanted for awhile (he works outside, year round). I was so excited that the whole way home I was singing praises to the Lord for our huge blessing!

When we got home we were looking for food to grill and by we I mean me. If it wasn't 10:15 and I was actually hungry to eat the food I was going to grill then I totally would have. Anywho... I LOVE my new grill and Mr. Clean LOVES being warm so it was a pretty awesome day and we both got blessed!

P.S. Laney Bug was blessed too, she got to go to Home Depot and see all the cool stuff. She loves that place. I swear she is a mini-mr. clean!

I'm so proud!

I was at work the other day asking some of the men what they are getting their wives for Christmas. I was shocked that most of them said that their wives get their own presents, wrap them and put them under the tree. My only response to them at first was "Are you kidding me?" They were all serious and had no clue what their wives tastes were or what to get them.

I have to tell you at that moment I was gleaming with love and admiration for Mr. Clean. He goes out every year and gets me gifts that blow me away. They are what I've wanted as well as surprises. He wraps them himself and puts them under the tree one each day until Christmas.

He surprises me with clothes I would have never picked but look great on me! And this year he let me open one early because he wanted me to use it that day. Can I tell you that my wonderful hubby bought me a new ceramic flat iron for my hair. I talked about getting a new one since I had bought a $9.00 one 2 years ago and it doesn't work that well anymore. I had said that about 6 months ago and he remembered. I was in awe of the simple fact that he listened to me. I also have to add that I am now addicted to straightening my hair.

Does your husband buy you Christmas gifts or do you buy them from him? Please comment and let me know. I am curious to see how many men do their own shopping for Christmas.

In the 1400's a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have "the rule of thumb"

The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV were Fred and Wilma Flintstone.

Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.

It is impossible to lick your elbow.

Santa Claus is Coming to Sears!

This made me laugh when I read it. I got it from Babytalk magazine.

He'd better watch out
my kid loves to cry
I hope he's got Shout
her butt's never dry
Santa's gonna want to leave town!

She'll suck on his beard
and grab at his cap
she'll drool on his sleeve
then fart in his lap
Santa's gonna want to leave town!

His nightmares when he's sleeping
are all of babes like mine
whan Santa's clock starts beeping
how he hates to rise and shine

Oh, he'd better beware
of pinches and tugs
he'd better take care
or maybe take drugs
Santa's gonna want to leave town!
