I ate scrambled eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and toast.
And finally, at Walmart. Really? Who goes into the restroom at Walmart and PAYS MONEY to find out their TRUE weight. This is the LAST thing I want to know.

I'm curious as to the marketing strategy of placing THIS ad on THIS car.
It's a nicely detailed hoopty?
And what's with half the letters in lower-case and half in upper-case?
Perhaps my standards are too high.

When The Celebrity Apprentice teamed up with Kodak and did a challenge with a printer, I was intrigued. I'm in need of a printer and the Kodak 5500 All-in-One looked like a good one. Best of all, the ink cartridges are much less expensive than those for my Lexmark.
But I'm basically cheap (okay, I was willing to pay and Mike said no) and couldn't bring myself to pay $250 for a new printer.
Enter Mother's Day! (Okay, you got me again. Ana had a school project that required lots of printing and the Lexmark was inadequate for the job.) The Kodak 5500 AiO (that's All-in-One) in now available for the low, low price of (wait for it!) $150.
So now I have one!

I had to clicky, clicky, clicky to find where I think this meme started.
Here is the path I followed:
Being a Mom of 3 Boyz, Purple Puzzle Place, Collecting My Thoughts, Tollef Fog Heen's blog, Magni's General Ramblings, A Bump on the Log of Life
This is where it ended. I looked through several pages of A Bump on the Log, but couldn't find the post. So you see, when linking back to someone's post, it's helpful to link to the post and not just the blog.

Only 39 for me. And some of them have nothing to do with being spoiled. I have two credit cards and good credit because I earned them. And all of the travel related questions occurred when I was in my 20s and working as a Travel Agent. We went to Paris, but couldn't afford the fee to ride the elevator to the top. Thank goodness they've built one here in Las Vegas, where we CAN afford to ride to the top.

But one was "normal" sized. For the most
part, they did a good job of dressing her body.
Not so much in this outfit.

For Mother's Day, Ana and I had pedicures.
It seems we weren't the only two with this great idea.
The salon was busy all afternoon. We were looking pretty shabby before going in...
but terriffic (if not stubby) when we finished.
