Today is Sunday, I love Sundays. Why? you ask. When I'm feeling well (not like today) I love to get up before the kids do, walk to the gas station and get a newspaper. Once I get home, I put on a pot of coffee, flip through the sale ads and then clip coupons. I love clipping coupons. If you don't know already, I'm a coupon addict. As in, Hello my name is Ellie...type of addict.
I absolutely love coupons combined w/ a sale or clearance. I've been able to get so many things for free or almost free because of coupons and sales. Who can beat that? It's awesome!
The rest of the paper usually gets read by the middle of the week. I basically buy the paper just for the coupons and sale ads. Isn't that horrible! Oh well...
On to the kiddo's. They are feeling better. They've had a cold for about 2 weeks. First it was a chest cold and now it has turned into a head cold. I've been fighting it too and now Brian woke up today w/ a sore throat. If one of us gets sick, all of us get sick. We're a bunch of snot swappers! YUK!
We won't be doing too much today, since we're sick. We may go for a walk around the neighborhood or play outside for a little while. Nathan seems content right now watching a Dirty Jobs marathon on Discovery. And Brandon is destroying his bedroom right now. He loves to take every toy out and stand in the middle of all of them. It's like he's taking inventory.
I better get off of here and get some work done around here.
Happy Sunday!

My first blog post, how exciting! The only people who know about this is, well, me, myself and I. I just thought it would be fun to write about my little monkeys, crazy husband and what goes on in our lives. So, whoever ends up reading this, I hope you enjoy it.
