But on the bright side....

* We had a pretty relaxing weekend, for the most part. Friday night, I did some homework while Matt made soup. Which involved him asking every two minutes, "Now what?"

* Saturday night I worked.

* Yesterday we went to Menard's and got all the insulation we need for the garage. Matt had $300 worth of gift cards to Menard's from Christmas. So it didn't cost us that much. After I send in the rebate, it will have cost us $6.

* Speaking of Menard's, they don't offer a military discount anymore. Which sort of pissed me off. It's not like they are the cheapest place to go. According to some old lady working there, senior citizens were complaining that they don't get a discount so why should people in the military. Old people drive me nuts, seriously. Anyone can be old. Not everyone can be in the military. I'm guessing the same ones complaining are the same ones that have never worked a day in their life and are soaking up all the social security benefits that I'll never see. But, hey, that's a different story for a different place. I'm not going there here.

* Speaking of being pissed off, I haven't been able to log into my school website since Friday night. I have stuff that was due yesterday that didn't get submitted. And more stuff due this evening that who knows when I'll be able to submit. My online class would be a lot easier if I could actually get online to do it. I tried at least 200 times since Saturday morning.

* Oh the bright side, I lost all of my "holiday weight" in a week.

* If your new to my blog, please said hi I don't usually bite. I'd love to check out your blog too.

Happy Monday!

Congrats on the holiday weight weight loss! We're actually off to Home Depot right now where they do offer the military discount. We don't have a Menard's.

I hate when the hubs cooks, he might as well let me do it!
And vets should get discounts everywhere.

I had that happen once when I was taking a class online and it was ANNOYING! Hope it starts working!

Agreed -there should, without a doubt be a military discount ... they deserve it for all they do to protect this great country.

That's utter crap about Menard's. Daniel and I shopped there all the time when we were stationed at Grand Forks. Cranky old people!
