Dear McDonalds Corporation

I am writing in regards to a visit at the McDonalds in White Bluff Tn. (This will be helpful for you local readers) My daughter loves the chicken selects......alot! She would eat them every day if she could, that is up until today. After eating two pieces from her meal she noticed the third peice was different. I looked at it and what I saw made me sick at my stomach. The chicken was RAW, as in not cooked. Now rememebr that I said she had already eaten two pieces that happened to be in the same box with this one. I am not sure if you know this but raw chicken can spread bacteria to other areas, includung the chicken it was in the box with so it really doesnt matter if the first two pieces were cooked all of the way. After bringing this matter to the attention of an employee, we were given another order of selects that were under cooked. I am pretty upset at this point. I threw them in the trash and your employee came by to ask if they were better. After I told him NO he mumbled something about the fryer being broken and walked away. I did not get an apology nor did they offer to refund my money. I did write to your corporate office about my experience and I also will let you know that it is New Years Eve and if my daughter has any ill affects from the food she was served today you will hear about it.

Her name is Mickey Mouse!

I decided to search doll patterns online and found the Black Apple pattern on the Martha Stewart site. Looked easy enough so I went through my scrap fabrics and made this. She isn't fancy by any means. I have to start out plain and work my way up to fancy ;). Little Brian absolutely loves her though and has named her Mickey Mouse! I wanted to get a photo of her to put on here, but he already had her and would not let her go so I took these three and couldnt choose between them so I put them all on! I think my favorite is the one of them sitting side by side on the chair. Speaking of that chair that was a little project from summer. We painted those bad boys black and gave them a new look! Maybe I can get Mickey away from him if I make a new doll that is more....uhmmmm... blue!

Sunday Savings!

Of course you all know what this is! Wax! So since I am trying to be more frugal what a better way than doing my own eyebrows. Call me crazy but I am actually not too bad at it. It saves me a ton of money also. I bought a kit with everything I needed at Sallys for $16! It is enough to do my eyebrows for the next couple of years! No Joke! I have to have mine done almost monthly or they look like wooly worms so this is one way I can save. Now I would highly recommend a professional before you think about waxing other areas ;)!

So I went to Metropolis for the weekend.....

Actually it was about 2 weeks ago that I went. No I did not go to gamble. I have never been one to care for that. I went to visit my friend Amanda. She moved to NY earlier this year and Metro is her home town so when she was in for a visit I had to go and see her. I actually drove there by myself. Did ya'll catch that last part? I know can you believe it? I dont have a lot of pictures but here are a few that I thought were funny. This first one is the fence of a local house. I take it the guy who lives there is a little weird. This is a picture of his "Death List, For them that need to die"! Yep, that it exactly what it says! I took more pictures of it but one is plenty,lol. This next one is of my new friends, Stephanie and Angie, in the cut outs. Of course we had to take these! It is Metropolis, home of Superman!
And last here is Amanda and myself in the cut outs! Dont we look great!

New Years Resolutions 09

Okay so I am pretty sure that everyone has given up on me by now, but here I am. I am going to try and do better about blogging this year. That brings me to the topic of this blog. 2008 has not been the easiest year for us. We lost a few people that were special to us this year. Brian lost his job a couple of months ago, but he is working now. We can be thankful for that. So here are my resolutions for the coming year!

* I am going to strive to be a more frugal person. (Not sure I have a choice on this one,lol)

* get my son potty trained (NOT going to be easy)

* Blog more ;)

* Keep up with the laundry (HA HA HA)

* Get crafty (I started a little this past year , but I can do better!)

That is about it for now. I would like to excercise more, but I am not putting that in writing!
