Yesterday was a great day for ducks. And surfers for that matter. Jeff, Adrian, and I went down to Presque Isle to check out the waves. They were around 5-6 feet high and crashing over the break-wall. Not surprisingly, their were plenty of surfers to be seen. I was thinking they were so crazy to be out there in 48 degree weather, in the rain and wind no less...
Until today, when I walked to the library when it was 41, sprinkling, and windy...hmmm....maybe they weren't so crazy after all. I wanted to pick up a book I had requested so I packed Adrian into the stroller and off we went. I was a few hundred yards from our apartment when I called Jeff to tell him that if it started raining, we would need him to come pick us up, it couldn't be any warmer than 40. A couple hundred yards later had me calling him again to bring me a hat and another blanket for Adrian. Brrr! I wonder how many people shook their heads when they saw me with a stroller in this weather! Oh well, Adrian was warm and snug as can be; he was awake for about 5 minutes while I was in the library and slept the rest of the time!
It could have been a balmy 80 degrees for all he knew! (I think his hat was like this most of the time but as you can see, he doesn't seem to mind!) :)
I got to see Emily and Amanda yesterday (and Cale, Brady, and Kendall). I am so bad about taking pictures!! I was thinking I should have had Jeff take one of the three of us sisters. Maybe next time...if I remember. We all packed into Em's minivan (Jeff went fishing) and went out to find some coupons deals and freebies! In the POURING and BLOWING rain might I add, yikes! I just got such a chuckle out of all of us hunting around Walgreen's to see just how much we could get for a few cents change. We were there for an hour! (Shoot, maybe I shouldn't have said that. An HOUR in Walgreen's? Did you even know that was possible?)
I spent $2.46 out of pocket (I had register rewards from a previous trip) and got $8 Register Rewards back in the end. This is what I got:
Oral B toothbrush
Herbal Essences shampoo
Herbal Essences conditioner
2 bags of caramels
Halls cough drops
2 snickers candy bars (needed something so I would have more items than coupons)
I know I could have done much better than that but I hadn't realized that you need more items than coupons. (You can combine manufacturer's coupons with Walgreen's coupons on the same item.) I'm planning to go again tomorrow morning because there is a really good deal on men's razors and they were all out when we were there.
