When I got home, I opened the box and inside was this:
A new coffee machine with some individual Gevalia coffee samples! I apparantly got this thing because I have shopped at Starbucks. That's not the first time I got something for free--years ago I got a case of Pepsi Free because I used to by Diet Coke all the time. Then, more recently, I received a case of Stacy's Pita chips because of my name--Stacy. But, I've never received a coffee machine like this before! Wish now that I had played the Mega Bucks Lottery thing. . . : )
Last night some friends came over, with pizza. After dinner, we set the kids up with a movie and some games in the Rec Room and us adults went on into the Man Cave to play some Wii bowling. What a great time!! I have to laugh because they weren't the first ones to not be too excited at first about playing and then, about a half hour into the game, they say something like "We are soooo getting one of these!!" It is fun. . .Aidan was good about not playing, but I know he would rather have been playing Wii. . .He kept coming to check on how we were doing!
This morning I woke up to a beautiful scene outside. The snow was falling softing and gently. The outside world looked so peaceful. . .
Then the dogs and the boys got up. . .
We finally got to Costco and Target and spent our weekly alloted few hundred dollars and are now home catching up on laundry (don't ever skip a day. NOTworth it!) and later I'll fix some spaghetti, salad and garlic bread for dinner. Tonight we'll hang out downstairs and watch the Caps. . .Nice and quiet family day.
Meanwhile, I found Aidan playing on the computer. . .he remembered to put his glasses on!
