Todays mail - 1.19.10

An ok mail day......

- Atkins starter kit (came with 3 bars and a carb counter)
- A belated birthday card for Ty
- another card for Ty from granny and grandpa (it had a check in it for doing so well on his report card!)
- One of Z's W2's (his company switched owners in July last year so he'll get two W2's....which sucks because we could technically go now and get our taxes done, but we have to wait for the other form! BOO!)

Mail goodies - Saturday 1.16.10

Mail has been so crappy lately. Although on Saturday I got a Scotch Fur Fighter pet hair remover! It was the actual tool and a refill pad.....and it works GREAT!!! I like it alot better than the pledge pet hair remover.

Hopefully more goodies will roll in this week.....I hate no mail days like today. Boo!

Happy birthday to my big boy!

Yesterday, at 5:29am, my big boy Tyler turned 6 years old. *sigh* How in the world am I a mom to a 6 year old?!? The time has gone by so quickly. He had a great day, though! I sang "happy birthday" to him yesterday morning and when I picked him up from school and I was singing it again in the van. He looked at me like I was crazy, but said he liked it. LOL Last night we all had strawberry cake with whipped cream icing and it was SO yummy!!! I got some pics of Tyler and Chase eating cake that I still need to fix and upload. I was going to work on that last night but this old hard drive is giving me a tough time. I can't wait to get my regular hard drive working again. I'll hopefully get some pics uploaded after I take Ty to school.......

*Speaking of old hard drive; I tried to post this several times yesterday but for some reason blogger wouldn't load....I know it was an issue on my end, obviously.*

Too fast....

Tomorrow my baby will be 7 months old. Where have those 7 months gone?!? He is growing way too fast, and it makes me sad. :( He is trying so hard to be mobile......he hates being held, especially when Tyler is playing on the floor or on the bed. Chase tries so hard to get down and play with him! We think he has a tooth on the bottom about to break through, and i'm wondering if that's why he's sleeping so crappy still. Tuesday night he slept all night long, but other than that he is up 3-5 times a night screaming. I've been giving him motrin before bed but he still doesn't sleep all that great. I also think the top teeth are trying to break through......*sigh* my poor little guy. He's gotten really good at rolling to get from place to place. And he just loves his big brother so much......his favorite thing to do with Ty is jump on our bed. I want to get Z to hold Chase to let him jump so I can get a picture of it. It's SO stinkin' cute!!!!

Speaking of Ty.....he is a GREAT big brother!!! You can really see just how much he loves Chase, and it melts my heart. :) Ty is doing great in school still!! He did have a rough day this week where he cried because he missed me....but he had been off from school for 2 weeks and it took him a bit to get used to school again. He is a great reader and just loves to read! He's still in the highest reading group in his class. We are SO proud of him!!! I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that he will be 6 years old next Wednesday......how in the world did that happen?!?!?

Back to posting mail goodies!

It's been SO long since i've posted about all the free samples and things I was getting in the mail......mainly because I had slacked off with signing up for things, especially after Chase was born. Towards the end of 2009 I went back at it and the goodies are slowly rolling in again!!!! I'm hoping this is something I can keep up with daily, although today's post is goodies I got during this past week.

- $5 Amazon GC/Opinion Outpost Cashout
- $5 CVS Extra Care Bucks/CVS Advisory panel
- One-A-Day Vita craves/smile.ly (it's a full sized bottle!!)
- $3 paypal/Buzzback payment

Obviously I don't know what I got today as it's still morning, but with the snow we got yesterday and how narrow our road is we may not get mail today.
