This week, for the first time in about a year, I overslept. On Sunday night, I set my alarm clock to 6:00 a.m. and went to bed. On Monday morning, my eyes flew open to 7:30 a.m. with my alarm clock shut off! My week has been like this - about an hour and a half off - not quite there - and fueled entirely by peanut butter cups and Diet Coke.
Every Sunday, I get an e-mail from Walgreens about current sales. Normally, I ignore e-mails from stores concerning sales because:
1. Outside of grocery shopping, I rarely have time to shop at a real store.
2. Unless I see the word "free" or "half price", I don't pay attention.
3. I have way too much junk e-mail to ever, ever, ever read them all.
As expected, my youngest son has an extensive Christmas list this year. He wants Moon Sand. He wants toy yard tools. He wants puzzles and Legos and Play Dough and race cars and a new toy camera. However, there is one item close to the top of my son’s list that stands out. There is one item different than all the other toys. It's an extension cord. Yes, my 4-year old son wants his own extension cord for Christmas!
