Costco vs Sams Club

Well the kids and I took off to Costco this morning. Needed a few things. Jimmy Dean egg sandwiches, vitamins, and baby wipes.

And no I dont have a baby. I do have a family that loves to camp. And baby wipes are the perfect, no water,quick clean up regardless of your age. As long as they are scent free their good for us!

So Costco has a box of 900 wipes for 19.99. Well I didn’t get it, too expensive for my taste. I did however get the Jimmy Dean sandwiches (and I should have just left!) I paid 10.99 a box, 12 in a box I bought 2 boxes.

Then off to the vitamin section in Costco to find out what they have on their web site THEY DO NOT SELL IN THEIR STORE. Well that was a disappointment so off we went to Sams Club.

Well the vitamins Sams Club has on web site they DO have in their store. So I got those.

Then I found 810 wipes for 10.99. Thats 90 wipes less than Costco and $9.00 less!! Do you think its worth 9 bucks for another 90 wipes?! I sure dont!

Off to the frozen section to look at Jimmy Dean sandwiches to see how badly I got screwed.

Well at Costco where I bought 2 boxes of 12 sandwiches I paid for 1box of 36 from Sams Club essentially!! I paid 10.99 a box at Costco. Same box at Sams Club was $8.29. The box from Sams Club of 36 sandwiches was $10.99. So I paid $5.40 plus tax at almost 8% more than I should have.

Lesson learned!! I will not be returning to Costco! They can go screw someone else thank you very much! I’m trying to raise a special needs family here! My money is not up to be blown!

Lunch with Mom, my day in a hand basket.

Well today I went out to lunch with my Mom. I behaved as to not get lectured in public like the last time we went out.

Nothing like being lectured by your mom when you are a mom!

Mom and I don’t always see eye to eye. Most of the time I’d say were on two different pages so to say.

She’s got a set way of doing things and its best if you keep your mouth shut.  For instance she thinks driving through the neighborhood at 40 mph is ok.

Well we made it to breakfast alive and in one piece. She is diabetic. First thing out of her mouth was to order a cinnamon roll..


I was waiting for her to go into a sugar coma or something. Fortunately that never happened. I wasnt going to tell her she shouldnt get it. Last time I did that she got mad at me.

Here is my view while I ate my breakfast.


Very calming view. I really enjoyed being there. And I enjoyed spending time with my mother. Just adults.  No children. It was a nice morning. And thank you to God for getting me back home safely.

I think some elders shouldn’t drive. And my mom is probably one of them. She’s a lead foot, scenic kinda driver.

Anyways it was a good day. Got to spend time alone with my mom. My boys are home from Church camp now. And the sky is beautiful!

The children have returned!!

Well my vacation is officially over. My children have returned from their Church youth retreat.

They had a wonderful time. It was a 5 day trip. They stayed at a Lutheran University in the dorms.

They made new friends. Children from all over the states were there. They now have friends from Illinois, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Nebraska, Oregon.

What a wonderful experience for them 🙂


Here is a picture the boys took inside the Chapel.

Happy 4th of July!

For the first time in my children’s life, fireworks are legal. The safe and sane type that is. Its just a two year trial at this time. Ill bet their illegal again in two years.

They had a blast!



Fun was had by all. I’m still hearing from my boys what fun they had! They loved the fountains and coo coo noisy ones.

Thanks for reading! Hope you all had a safe, fun 4th of July!

A nice quiet day

Well today has been a nice quiet day so far.

Dropped my boys off early this morning to help a fellow Boy Scout on his Eagle project.

My boys go and work at all their friends Eagle projects. They really enjoy it. And they always learn something new.

So its just been me and my pup and the cat of course here today. Its been very quiet and enjoyable. Ahh.

Hope my boys are having fun! They are installing chain link fence at a preschool.

Hope you all have a great day! Thanks for reading 🙂

A look around my yard in July..

Well I dont have planters in back yard so everything is in pots. The front yard has planters.

My plumeria plant is in the front yard. I love that plant. I placed it there due to it being toxic to pets. Pup doesn’t spend time in front yard unless she is on a leash.



A stray flower has dropped to the ground.


I have a mini rose plant in the backyard in a pot. Its blooming again.


I also have hand prints and paw prints in the backyard.


This one is from original owners child in the 60’s.


My cats paws lol

And here is a picture. Of my children’s hand prints
