Sunday Couponing...

Quote for the Day:
Negligient:  adj.
Absentmindedly answering the door 
when wearing only a nightgown.

This morning when I was getting my coupons and lists ready to go shopping, my printer decided that it was no longer going to respond to the commands of the computer.  I tried re-installing the software for the printer, but to no avail.  :(  

Luckily, everything is still under warranty and so a call to Dell technical service and 1.5 hours online with a really nice lady from India...and the printer is back up and working just fine!  

I love how they can do a remote access to your computer and do everything themselves!  How many of you remember the "olden" days...before remote access...when the technician would say, "okay, now left click the start open the you see a the word "file" at the top of the page...left-click on that..."  That was soooooooo frustrating because they never believed you when you said you had done what they had told you to do but you still weren't getting the desired results.  :(  And if you had to call multiple times for the same issue, you had to redo the first 15 steps EACH time.  "Yes, we tried that before...and it didn't work then, either." was so frustrating!  But establish a connection with them and let THEM deal with it!  Soooooooooo much better!!!!

So now the printer is back working just fine...taking orders from the computer and printing out the way it should!  :)  

Last Sunday was the Christmas party for the Recovery Room dept.  I had someone take the group picture for me...the first one was good but very I'm stuck showing you the not-so-good-but-not-blurry one...

That would be me, second from the right in the front row...with my eyes closed.  :(  And just to be clear...that little girl on the far left is NOT an employee...she is the daughter of the lady in red to her left.  We may be desperate for help sometimes, but we haven't resorted to child labor, yet!  :)

If you look closely, in front of the second person from the left, front row, is an "orb".  (The white round thing down close to her feet.) 

I've labeled it in this picture...

If you've ever watched "Long Island Medium", you'll know that an "orb" is supposed to be the spirit presence of a deceased person.  I've seen her show pictures on her show and this is exactly what they look like.  She says it is NOT just something on the lens.   It is not present in the other picture that was blurry...I went back and checked.  I had heard this about orbs in pictures before watching that show, too.   Hmmm...just makes you wonder.  Who's to say for sure?  I know that I certainly don't have all the answers, so who am I to say "yay" or "nay" on this subject?

Well...onto my couponing deals today...

At Walgreens....

I got $51.90 worth of product, paid $2.58 out-of-pocket, got $14.50 back in Register Rewards, making this trip an $11.92 moneymaker for me.  :)
