Flea Market Deals!

I make it a point write notes for lots of things. For example, we go to the flea market maybe twice a month or more when the sun is out and it's fresh outside. Anywho, hubby downloaded a program called stickynotes. It looks just like a sticky (yellow, green, blue) and it pops up on your desktop and you can add or delete stickies whenever you want. If your computer goes to sleep, your sticky stays on your desktop when it wakes up. Anywho... so I can have upto 3 stickies up at a time... one for reminders for the day, like when i'm cooking (chicken ready at 4:50 or don't forget to stir the beans!), then I can have another with important numbers or small grocery lists or good coupon deals I found that day. I had had a sticky up for a while that we needed to buy new sheets (looks like rats were chewing at our feet for a few weeks, lol). It also happened to be a nice day out so I asked hubby if he wanted to go to the Farmer's Market. Hubby loves the one on Vicotoria Rd. (in between Donna & Weslaco), because they have great old & new things and it's a flea market and a farmer's market in one (you do have to cross the street). So I had sheets on my mind as we strolled through the flea market. We saw a few stands that sold sheets... $75, $50, $45. Too much for me! Then we saw one $23 1200 count King Sheet Set! BINGO! They had all sorts of colors and the pillow cases were embroidered. So I told hubby, BUY IT! He went up to the lady and gave her $23, but she said these are $20, "PERFECT." Two days later, they are washed and on our bed. The sheets are a bit rough, but they just need to be broken in, right?! Teehee.

So, just wanted to share my excitement with ya'll. And these aren't used sheets, they are NEW!
Have a great day!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
