To Dish or Not to Dish...

that is the question!

Not talking about cooking here, I'm talking about TV. Since we moved here in March we've had the most basic Cox cable package, which is $14/month. I only recently realized that the channels we get (local news, PBS, etc) are the same that you would get with an antenea and have no monthly bill. So I looked into that but it turns out our living room and bedroom TV's would both need converter boxes. Sure it would be cheaper in the long run, to buy the boxes and anteneas and not pay the $14/month but *keywords* "in the long run." We don't get to watch much TV because we don't have many channels and we would LIKE to have more but didn't want to pay a hundred bucks for the expanded cable, which left us considering Dish Network and their 19.99 package. I was sure that included some hidden fees and wouldn't really be only 19.99/month. So, we looked into Dish Network and considered going ahead with that. We figured when we got our income tax refund we could just pay it for the whole year. Then, if we didn't like it or couldn't afford it, we could cancel after the year was over. It was really the only "treat" we were planning to get at income tax time. The rest of the money was going to pay off bills. Turns out the 19.99 package doesn't include local channels, those are $5 extra. So, okay we can deal with that. It also doesn't include FX, but I suppose I can continue watching Sons of Anarchy online like I've been doing. Corey is only interested in the Discovery Channel and Comedy Central, and it has both of those. It also has Lifetime, I would be happy with that. But we are still debating. To Dish or Not to Dish.....

Still Pregnant...

Had a short trip to L&D last Thursday night but got sent home the next morning. Giving him another few weeks before the eviction notice gets posted. Anytime he is ready is fine by me. He is all set for "Life on the Outside," I have everything ready that he needs. My bag is packed and in the truck, all the hospital paperwork has been taken care of, and we are just waiting on him to choose a birthday!

Okay, so I just ate a whole box of........

Crunch 'n Munch.

family size.

12 oz.

We went grocery shopping yesterday and I had a coupon, buy 2 get 1 free. It's not something we normally buy, but i thought it looked good and why not? So i opened a box yesterday and ate some....then last night I ate more and this morning I ate more....and then it was just, GONE! Corey had a couple handfuls but I will take the majority of the blame. He was looking at me in shock saying "You ate that whole thing? It's FAMILY size!" I told him "Well....I am a family, a mom and baby!"

UGH.....the side panel says there are 11 servings, 5 fat grams per serving.....NOT good. Ugh. But remember Corey did have a little of it. Still not good though. There's a big thing on the front that says "No Trans Fat" as if that helps......DOES that help?!

Winn Dixie Meal Deal

I went to Winn Dixie Sunday night (yes, during the Superbowl, I was at Winn Dixie) to buy diapers. I had a $10 off $50 purchase catalina, and a $2 pampers coupon. I figured I'd find some other stuff to add with the diapers to bump my total up to $50. When I got there and saw this meal deal I was like "YAY! How cool is that?!" b/c Eli was just saying he wanted pizza.

When you buy: 2 Red Baron frozen pizzas (2/$11.98)
You get the following FREE: one box of Tyson Anytizers, (got the hot wings), one pack of Bryan Lil Smokies, one 2 liter Coca-Cola, and Bridgford Monkey Bread. Not bad!

The diapers were $20, the meal deal $12, and I picked up some 18 packs of cokes, and a Hotwheel for Eli, bringing my total to just over $50, minus my $10 cat and my $2 pampers. I paid $41 and walked out of the store a happy girl. And while we were there we discovered that the Saints had won, a strange man high fived me after getting a call on his cell phone, and there was also an annoucement over the intercom. When we got to the parking lot the whole sky was lit up with fireworks. I had a smile on my face already though, for a different reason. I love a good deal!
