...how can you resist?
As if that's not enough, in the last couple of weeks we have received not one but TWO enormous boxes of disposable diapers for Mary. I guess y'all were serious when you told me not to use cloth anymore until the laundry room is fixed up? I guess. So thank you to Kris (if you have a blog, message me the link!) and Katilin. Women of action up in here.
The people! Oh, the people!
Oh, and even a doppler from Jordana!
All the good things appearing magically on our doorstep. This is what miracles look like, you guys. Vessels of miracles is what you are.
Y'all should wear shirts: Miracle Maker. Yes.
Wanna hear my new money saving scheme? Of course you do.
So when our Verizon contract expired (I finally know what true freedom is, friends) I hopped on the Virgin Mobile train and for a mere $35 a month got a reasonable number of talk minutes, unlimited texting and unlimited data. I was feelin' pretty clever! But no, I was not clever enough. My cleverness and cheaposity has now reached level 11 in the following manner:
1) A $5 phone from Tracphone complete with triple minutes for life, which means I just paid $30 for THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY MINUTES of talk time. I never talk on my cell phone. That's going to last me, like, five months, y'all. That's like cell service for $6 a month. Cray. Craycraycraycraycray.
2) An ipod touch, which just needs a wifi connection to do its internet thang. So, unlimited data for....wait for it....$0.00 a month. That's about as cheap as it gets, people!
Now, it was $100 for a 4th generation ipod (happy birthday to me) off of Ebay, BUT that will pay for itself in about three months because I don't have the Virgin plan anymore. Totally worth it. It's like an investment in future money saving.
I threatened to make a list of all the lists I need to make and I'm fixin' to make good on that threat because I love lists.
To do list
Hospital Packing List
Laundry Room Reno List
House Prep for Mama Absence List
To Be Done Before Mama Absence List
Whew! Now I can wait 'til the last minute to actually accomplish any of it.
p.s. Feel free to contribute your own suggestions, either lists that need to be made or things that ought to go on said lists. Any and all advice appreciated and loved.
