That was very kind of youSo I grabbed it. I put it in a pot and gave it to another person who contacted me on FB, a grade school teacher who wants it for her class. Free of course. I am in awe of teachers and all they do.
Ugh! How frustrating!Well discovered the carpet cleaner machine was put away in a broken state and I was not informed.
If he has a smart phone, both McD's and DD have apps. I don't use the DD one much, but you can order ahead and just go in and pick it up (some places have curbside where they'll bring it to you, I think...) And it builds up points for free drinks.Sunny and cool this morning. Dh took dgd to McDs for breakfast burritos.... Getting fast food is no longer fast....
I use the McD's all the time because you get a TON of free stuff, plus it is one less step for my order to get messed up... I type it in how I want it, no chance of a wrong button being pushed by someone else. (Sometimes they STILL put the wrong thing in the bag, though.) I have mine liked to my debit card, so even the payment is one-touch, then I just go through the drive-thru because I'm too impatient to wait for them to bring it out curbside...
In the morning the breakfast sandwiches are almost always BOGO, but sometimes there is a "free baked item with any purchase" offer than will score you a fritter or a muffin with your $1 drink... And then during the non-breakfast hours there is almost always a "free large fries with any purchase" choice... we use the heck out of that lately with the teenagers... heck, I used it today and all we bought was sodas while we were picking up DD18's friend... Pay $3.18, get a $3.49 thing free... ok... 😜 Two days ago they had free 10 piece nuggets, no purchase necessary... but I wasn't in the mood, go figure.
My only complaint about it is that you can't use the daily deals at the same time as your "rewards"... and you can't use more than one of the "rewards" at once, either... so I have enough points for 3 burgers or whatever, but I can only get 1 per 60 minute time frame, can't redeem all 3 at once, can't get one free burger plus a special-priced fries, etc...
H was talking last night and this morning about "better shop early, the skkyyyyyy is fallinnnnngggg!!!!!" as if this was new information. I was too tired to bother mocking him. 🤣 I just told him all my smart imaginary friends on the internet have known that for months.Will try to get a little early holiday shopping in, too. Dinner is probably leftovers.
Today is my oldest daughter's 18th birthday. I have been blue and anxious about this for ages now, and probably will be again tomorrow, but today I am just happy and proud of us all... For years now I have said my goal was for her to reach her 18th birthday alive and not pregant-- and I wasn't being facetious. Well, not only are we here, but she also has no tattoos or criminal record, so... bonus!!!... again, NOT kidding. It has been rough at times. She is a sweet girl-- except when she's not.
Today we got her all set up with her non-driver state ID. Tomorrow I will probably call the Social Security Office to set up an appointment to begin the loonnnngggg process of her evaluations for disability benefits (until she was 18, she didn't qualify because we "make too much.") But today, we will just be happy-- we made it this far, and while it's not what I would have wished for her and there are times when I grieve for what might have been, she's still with us and we love her and that is good enough for me. (She, on the other hands, is jones-ing for some hella expensive headphones...) 🤣
Oh, and dinner tonight is b-day girl's choice. She was saying Carrabba's earlier, but it is pretty far away, and she is napping now (she gets tired easily and today was a big day)... she might not feel like getting up, so we'll just wait and see...
