What a rough day in our house yesterday! First DD tested positive for strep. While I had her at the doctor, DH and DS went to visit Grammy. While there, DS called 911! UGH! It is time for Christmas break to be over!!

One of my new features for 2009 will be "Found Money". I am keeping track of how much money our family can find laying on sidewalks, streets and parking lots. I found a penny so far!! Can I fill this jar before the year is over on just found money? I will keep a running total on the right hand column. Let's see how much my family can find. - Gold Bond Ultimate Soothing Lotion - free sample - KOTEX Lightdays THIN - free sample

free glue dot samples - Glue Dots - free sample

Norfolk Southern Corporation - Coloring Book Requests - free coloring book

CankerMelts - FREE Sample! - free sample get Self magazine!

Banner Ad - This is the best survery site on the internet. They pay cash! It does not take 2 years to have enough points to cash in like other survey sites. I made over $60 here last year!

I bet you can fill it up. That is a great idea. I bet you will be more mindful walking around now! Sorry about the strep. Is Grammy OK?

Grammy is fine.. he just wanted to call the police because he is infatuated by them right now. He never thought someone would really answer the 911 call! Boy did it scare the crap out of him when they answered. He hung up as fast as he could and went and hid!

What a neat idea to blog the money you and your family finds! We might try following along with this idea here at home :0) I bet you can get that pretty close to being full, atleast!
