Love Safeway.com!

I know I have a busy day today so I got online to safeway.com and did my shopping.  Had my list and it was smooth.  I go thru all the sales first then hit my list and BAM...I'm done shopping.  My groceries will be here between 4-6 today!  I don't have to bag a thing, deal with snotty cashier, or my kids saying I want this and that plus I don't actually have to go to the store- LOVING THIS!!!!

Simple things make me happy!  Grocery shopping is right up there with washing dishes as my 2 least favorite household chores.

Netflix Rocks AT&T Sucks

Our cable box has been tripping for a couple weeks now and after the 4th time of being on the phone with AT&T my husband demanded them to replace the box or he was changing carrier.  Two nights in a row we were watching TV around 9pm and poof the RED X appears on the screen.  At that time of night we are NOT going to call so we switched over to Netflix and watched that!  No sweat off my back until I figured out the cable didn't come back on in the morning or afternoon.  Now your messing with my soap operas- yes I watch soap operas.  I switch between Y&R/All My Kids/Days- never watch all 3 just the one that is exciting- which right now is YR.  Watching my DVR TV shows at night time while everyone slept was my "thing to do".  We will be getting our new box on Thursday. 

Netflix has some awesome documentaries/movies so no worries we will have plenty to watch but I really enjoyed the quiet last night- so maybe having no TV isn't all the bad.

Pam Allen Online

I've been learning social media for a couple months now and I'm moving towards becoming a Social Media Manager. 

I have my own website: http://pamallenonline.com/  Facebook: PamAllenOnline  Twitter: pamallenonline

The site is going to be my journey into Social Media Marketing.  I want my niche to be MOM BLOGS but for now I'm working on my husband's airbrushing site http://mrairbrushhands.com/ and I've been bringing him business every week by posting his info on Facebook, Twitter, Craigslist- just getting his info out there.  He is so proud of me.  I'm proud of myself too!

Other Projects:
  • Admin on Facebook for my kids school.
  • This week will start a Facebook page for the cafe I work for- hoping to bring in more customers during the week. 

I'm excited to share what I've been learning and even more excited to implement what I've learned! 

We don't have a choice on whether we do social media but the question is how well we DO IT!  Quote by Erik Qualman

Rearranging Rooms

I'm one of those people that LOVE to rearrange rooms like every couple months. However, last time I did that I threw my back out and I was in pain for several days so guess what....haven't moved furniture in awhile and its KILLIN ME, lol! I know crazy huh!

We are getting are carpets cleaned tomorrow and so in my head I need to rearrange some things before this happens. I tell my husband last night that I want to move the desk out of the bedroom then into the living room and take the couches/chair out of the living room. He looks at me and says "My head just started hurting"....so do I take that as a NO???

Well guess I need to find a virtual house to move around.

Follow Me Monday

Thanks to http://beonefineday.blogspot.com/
for reminding me about this blog hop today!

What is a blog hop?

A blog hop is a linky list that is SHARED ON MULTIPLE BLOGS.
When several blogs put the same linky list code on their blog, the
exact same list appears on each blog.

Blog visitors can submit their entries on any blog that contains the list.
The entries will appear on each blog where the list resides.

Blog readers see the same list on each blog, and can "HOP" from blog
to blog seeing the same list of links to follow: BLOG HOP!


Monday morning from 7-8am is so funny!  My lil girl she gets up with a smile, wanting to go to school, takes bath, gets dressed - no problems!  Than there is my son....OMG does he do this on purpose every Monday!  He won't get up and it takes him at least 15 minutes to get out of bed.  To get him into the shower is like watching a big slug move across the room.  He doesn't walk he slithers but it takes him at 10 minutes to go 10 steps.  This morning he put is leg into the shower and called it GOOD...really dude.  I know he didn't take a shower Sat or Sun because I work and I'm not here to say do it! Whats up with boys and water.  After I stand outside the bathroom door (like I don't have other stuff to do) and not let him out until he actually get his whole body under the water then of course I'm the MEAN MOM! He sings a Mean Mom song too....I need to record that.

When I wave to them goodbye a smile forms and I know I have a couple hours to quiet and coffee so its all good :)  This MEAN MOM will now enjoy the rest of her Monday!

Are you ready for THANKSGIVING?

Biggest question is AM I?  Heck no but next week I'm all about it.  The carpets are getting cleaned on Wednesday.  My house is in good condition so I don't have to do much in house cleaning but I do want to go through and declutter.  I've been doing lil baby steps with fly lady so I guess that's where my decluttering is coming from LOL!

I am going to do my menu and shopping list next week too!  I have to stay I HATE GROCERY SHOPPING!  We moved last year and the neighborhood grocery store is horrible.  I get all stressed out when I have to go shopping there so guess what I did the other day...I shopped ONLINE!  I made my list and ordered from Safeway.com ( free delivery and $15 off- for 1st time) and let me tell you it was AWESOME!  I got to pick what day/time they would deliver and it was very smooth.  I was a little worried about produce/meat so I didn't get too much but what I did was perfect.  The only complaint I can say was my milk jug was dented...oh my :)  I'll be doing this again and again. 

My cousin is coming from Arizona with her son and we are so excited!  Hubby is thinking about doing a "smoked" turkey and I say go for it, more room in the oven for me.  Now lets hope and pray I don't burn anything! 

What are your favorite Thanksgiving Tips/Tricks???

Why did the Migraine take 2 days of my life?

Just NOT FAIR, I say!  I probably get a dozy every year but I can usually take some Tylenol and everything will be fine.  Ummmm NOT this time!  The only thing that helped was resting all day yesterday in a dark room.  OMG the light hurt SO bad! 

Besides the pain it was an eye opener that I need to go to the Dr's!  I hate Dr's (not them personally) but I need to swallow my fears (or whatever it is) and just go!  The only time I go to the doctors is when I'm pregnant well that's not going to happen ever again and its been 6 yrs.  Ok fine!

I don't want to go thru that again.  I couldn't even see out of my right eye and felt like my face was swollen.  It wasn't but it felt like it!.  I'm a big baby when it comes pain so maybe a normal person (LOL) could have handled that pressure but nope not me- crawl into bed and stay there until I feel better is what I do! 

Today I'm paying for my day in bed though- double housework double computer work!  Geez when does the cycle stop....hehehe!

Halloween Over....WOOHOO!

Don't get me wrong Halloween is fun but a lot of work!  This weekend I was non-stop to create a wonderful weekend for the kids.  Halloween arts n crafts, parties, sleep-overs, trick/treating....we were busy ALL weekend.  Then on top of it I had to work too.  I'm exhausted! 

We have the excited princess and the cool SWAT officer!

I was so busy I didn't take that many pictures....bad mom!  Today I am dragging and just want to crawl back into bed!  Not going to happen but hey its all good, my family had a awesome time.

This morning though Lil Man was very difficult to get out of the house to school.  He didn't want to go to school because "he didn't get to relax all weekend".....translation " I didn't get to play video games"  Oh cry me a river dude, like I'm going to let you stay home so you can play video games- NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!  He didn't want to walk with me and told me not to talk to him.  He is sooooo lucky I didn't have all my coffee in my system because it might have gone bad!  LOL...big bad momma that I am :)

Decorations coming down tonight.  Lil Mama wants to help.
