BzzAgent Stuff

I got my packages in the mail for my BzzAgent campaigns! Yay.

1st campaign: Children's Claratin
I got 8 coupons for $3 off, a free box of Claratin, my instructions on how to bzz and a cute children's book about allergies.
Now I just have to wait until Monk Man starts sniffling and sneezing so I can give him some Claratin instead of Benadryl and see how it works.

2nd campaign: Afrin Pure Sea
I got 8 coupons for $3 off, a free bottle of Afrin Pure Sea stuff, and my instructions.
So I guess this Pure Sea stuff is like a cross between a Nettie Pot and Simply Saline? My first thought is gross, but I am going to try it out for a week, starting today before my shower.

Swagbucks Again

I just cashed in my bucks for my 3rd $5 Amazon gift card. Seriously, if you aren't doing this already, sign up! Its easy and takes almost no time at all.
So onto what has been going on lately.

Work still sucks. I am still only working part time. I am getting a lot of housework done before I go in though. My routine is all screwed up still but I am slowly building a new one.

I found out that my BIL (Jason) and his new girlfriend are going to have a baby.

I am kinda torn on how I feel about it.

I haven't gotten to meet her yet because they got together right after we visited at Christmas and we haven't been back up there. From what I have heard, she is nice and stuff. It is just really, really, really difficult to imagine Jason as a parent. (I am sure people think the same about me. I can just see it at my 10 year High School reunion next year. Wha? You have 2 kids? LIAR!)

It sounds selfish but I am a little jealous that my boys won't be the only grandchildren on that side of the family anymore. I know, I suck for thinking like that and I feel like such a bitch for it. I know that it SHOULDN'T change things but it will. I think that goes back to the situation with my side of the family. I will post something explaining it all hopefully soon. Maybe tonight or tomorrow.

As if I don't already have enough going on....

I joined Bzz Agent yesterday.

I figured that since we will probably be moving to a town/city that I don't know anybody in, I might as well get started on something to occupy my time while the kids are napping or playing together.

I already have my first 2 campaigns. Those kits are already in the mail and I should be getting them within 21 days.

What is Bzz Agent? Check out this link here. It is word of mouth advertising, which is the best kind of advertising.

So I have only been doing this Swagbucks thing a few months and I just cashed out my bucks yesterday. I got 2 $5 Amazon gift cards for 45 points each.

I only do 2 or 3 searches a day and grab the SB codes when I happen to find one.

Not too bad. I would be wasting time on the internet anyway. Might as well get something free while I am at it.

I am so childish

This weekend, Bobblehead started saying words. Not sounds that I pretend to hear are real words, but actual words!

Tee heee.
He can say caka.

I think it is SOOOO freaking funny.

This was our conversation over breakfast (at noon since work is in the shitter and getting worse....I will post about that later):

Me: Bobblehead, say caka.
Bobble: Caka
Me-almost falling out of my chair: Hahahahahahahaha
Bobble: Hahahahaha
**repeat a million times**

I am such a bad mom for encouraging that.

On the (semi-)brighter side, he can say hot-dog and cookie too.

Hours Slashed

So last Tuesday, work cut my hours by half. Instead of going in at 9, they don't want me until noon.

I am really hating it. My routine is still all screwed up.

The actual shop closes at 3 now, instead of 5 and the office stays open.

The guys have been bitching that there was nothing to do, they are bored, blah blah blah. Now they are bitching because they have to go home. I swear, some men are worse than children.

Hubbs is still laid off and collecting unemployment but that won't last for much longer, only a few more months. On the bright side, we haven't burned through our savings as fast as I thought we would. In fact, we haven't taken much out of it at all, maybe $800 at the most.

We have started talking about moving again. I am actually okay with it this time.

Don't get me wrong, I HATE moving. We have been in this home since we got married. We have accumulated a lot of stuff in almost 6 years.

But my mom is driving me crazy. Work is looking bleak. It looks like it will be around 2 years or so before Hubbs gets back to work locally.

Moving seems like a pretty good option right now. As long as we can find a place that Hubbs can hold a year round job at. Wyoming is looking the most promising but I would rather live somewhere warm. Driving in the snow is not my forte.

We still have so much to figure out.

My boss has no idea that I might leave. Hubbs wants me to wait on telling them until we are sure we can find a place he can hold a job at. I hate having to act like everything is normal though.

The kids are squawking about something. I will post more later......

Crazy Street People

We live in a town with a lot of transients. They get drunk and wander the streets until the police pick them up and take them to jail or the detox center. The other day, one of them decided to try and sleep it off in one of our customer's cars. The car was parked in front of the shop, the guy opened the door and climbed right in. One of the shop guys saw it and had to physically throw the guy out of the car. Dumbass.

I have had to chase these street people off my own property. They are stubborn! I found one passed out in our camp trailer once. I had gone out the back gate to clean the camp trailer for a camping trip that weekend and noticed the door wide open. I saw him passed out under the table. I had to call the cops on that one because there was no way I was going to try and get him out from under there.

Another one even had the nerve to steal a garden hose out of my neighbor's truck (which I saw because I was outside playing with Monk Man in the sprinkler) and then try to sell it to me for $10. I took the hose from him and threw it over the neighbor's fence. The only reason this one left was because I threatened to turn my dogs loose on him.

I used to feel sorry for them but after some of the crap I have dealt with from them, I don't feel sorry for them anymore.

The worst was when I worked at the gas station. They would come in, try to buy alcohol, I would deny them and they would get nasty. I have been cussed out, spit at, swung at, followed out to my car, and had things thrown at me.
