Has anyone gone out of their house yet with all of this snow? We (me and the girls) hadn’t left until Friday afternoon, and I couldn’t wait to go. Since I figured most weren’t leaving their houses, and I’ve been tired at times with this pregnancy, I’ve been lax in posting, and for this I apologize.
The Everett Herald hasn’t been delivering up my hill since Tuesday, so I am REALLY missing the newspaper. Skimming the on-line paper just isn’t the same. I want something in my hands.
As the holiday approaches, and the price of gas goes down, the price of groceries is coming down, so stock and save this week if you are brave enough, or if you can get someone to take you. I’m posting some of the same items that are at different stores but different prices because you may find yourself in one part of town and not another, and may be it’s just not worth is to go one place to buy one thing to save .20 and brave the snow.

Freebie: This Year Oprah didn’t do a whole “Favorite Things” show where she historically gives away many items, and some that are very expensive. She didn’t think that was appropriate this year. Instead she showed some gifts you can make more inexpensively and showed different recipes, etc…But she did offer a free gift to all…the gift of music, a CD of music that you can down load off her web-site along with a CD Cover and CD label you can download. There are 8 songs from some of my FAVORITE artists including Harry Connick Jr., Tony Bennett, and Josh Groban. I don’t know when this show first aired, but it aired again yesterday, and you have at least until today, Saturday 12/20/08 at 4pm to download this music. I did it last night, and the music is great, and it was very easy to do. Go to: http://www.oprah.com/article/oprahshow/20081118_tows_holiday/2
If you didn’t do it in time and are interested in the CD, give me a blank, and I can burn it for you.
