November 26 of 30

This morning Sean had his first doctor's appointment with his new doctor. He's a very nice man, and I'm glad we chose him. He doesn't believe in the flu shot for a baby Sean's age, so he doesn't want to do the booster that follows 4 weeks after the flu shot. He says that 30% of babies that get the flu shot end up sick. So he says just to wait until next month, when Sean will get his 12 month booster shot near his birthday. That one is more important. Alright! Sean was weighed today, and he's 22 lbs 7 ounces (10.3 kg). That makes him in the 60th percentile for 11 months old (Wednesday he's 11 months old).

Today I ran some errands with my sister. While we were out at Walmart, Sean was fast asleep. So we used our coats to for some cushiness for him, and he slept the entire time we were there. He was too cute in the basket asleep!

This is a cd I want! I didn't even know it existed. It's cheaper on Amazon so I'm going to wait and get it there the next time I place an order. I didn't even know they came out with this CD. I'm a huge Barenaked Ladies fan!

As of today, I'm now a Costco member! I joined, and I can't wait to start using my membership. Costco has great deals on everything, and I never walk out of there without spending money. Today I picked up a few groceries from there, but there is other stuff I need to go back for (including diapers for Sean, I find Huggies to be most economical there).

Did you know that you can buy a pregnancy test at the Dollar Store? My sister & I stopped off at one on our way home, I needed to pick up a containor and some more little bead bags (for stitch markers) and I saw this on the shelf. I couldn't believe it! A pregnancy test! I wonder if they're actually any good? I didn't buy one, but I find it amusing. This proves that you can literally buy anything at the dollar store. I can only imagine what price they paid to stock it!

Tonight I hung out with Jamie and we watched Heroes on tv. I can't believe next week is the season finale. I am assuming that's because of the writer's strike? An 11 or 12 episode season, that's very upsetting. I can't believe they can just end it like that?

Tomorrow I've got an appointment in the morning to finally put my winter tires on my car, and my mom is going to be babysitting Sean so that I can go to the old house and clean up a bit. I need to have it done sooner than I thought, because the new owners of the house asked for a "Walk-Through" before the sale of the house. Basically, this is a practice that real estate does in the USA. Here in Canada, it's not unheard of, but it's not common at all. My agent says he hasn't had a request for one in YEARS. Apparently it's normal in the USA, and since I have americans buying my house, they requested it. So, I'm off tomorrow to clean up the house, and make sure that we really did take everything out of the house. There is some garbage left there, so I will have to put it out. I cannot wait until Thursday, for the sale to go through, and the headache of the old place to be gone. Almost there, almost there! I've also got the locksmith company coming to take out my lock out of the old house and just put something else in. The lock we currently have in there, is useless to the new owners without my signature and code. (In order to make a copy of the key you need my signature to match what's on file, etc.) So we're taking that with us.

I feel like tomorrow is going to be a long day, so I'm off to bed. Don't forget you have 4 days left to order yourself a December Sock Club Kit from Robyn's Nest. It'll ship mid-December, just in time for Xmas! Also don't forget, I've put Mirasol Hacho is on sale until November 30th, for 1$ off per skein. And don't forget that I've updated the Notions section with new products (and more coming soon!)

Stock in the Dollar Stores are not necessarily inferior in quality. Many times the items end up there because the mfg has decided to change the packaging or something similar.

Like anywhere, buyer beware, but just cuz you get it at the discount store doesn't mean the quality isn't any good.

I went Dollarama shopping with the kids yesterday looking for one of those wee lunch boxes like K had Last week but with Sponge Bob. I KNOW I saw them and didn't get one at the time even though I wanted it because I had no idea what I'd do with it. Now I know and I cannot find the one I like.
PS: I told you about that CD silly! Back when umm..I'm going to say Amy? was here and we went for a Sunday knit night. (pregnancy brain alert!)
You will LOVE the CD. I love the whole thing. We got ours at their concert and Steven Paige autographed ours for Benoit, which thrilled that child's ass off. When we took him to the Bell Center show (his first Rock concert!!)he was really wishing that he could meet the guys.

$ store tests are great from what I hear. I haven't tried them, but I have several friends who swear by them. Especially when doing a cycle, and you want to test way more often. Way cheaper than $10 a test for a first response.

And the BNL holiday CD is really amazing! I got it a few years back when it came out, and it's in my car now. It's even got a few Hanukkah songs on it too (Steve is jewish). I'm a huge fan of theirs too. Aren't their concert's amazing?!

Pregnancy tests at the dollar store. What will they come up with?

Bertha said...

Oh my goodness, that picture of Sean asleep in the cart is the cutest thing ever!!

Jenny said...

Oh, I love BNL and that sounds like a really good CD. PG tests at the dollar store...hmmm, I guess they can't be too bad!

Next week's heroes is just the fall season finale. There's going to be two story arcs this year. Partially because the creator recieved so many complaints about this season, so he's going to end this story line than come back (hopefully if the writer's strike ends) with a new more exciting story line.

He's such a little doll. I can't believe how big he's gotten!

Our $ store here has preggo tests too. I've even seen the OPK there too. Much cheaper than at the drug store.

Congrats on the new little peanut! We're still trying. :-( I wish it was easy for us. I'd love to have another little monkey in the zoo! LOL

I love Barenaked Ladies! :) I thought I had that CD, but it's not on my shelf. I guess it's just one that I want but haven't bought yet. ;) I know I have one of the songs on it that I got through iTunes (I think with a free song code).

I see you managed to get those mini crochet hooks. Cool! :)

our dollar stores have the pregnancy tests too..and condoms. it was weird seeing them there the first time though. whew, hope the walk through goes well tomorrow and soon you'll be able to breathe that sigh of relief that the old place is no longer yours! :) I had no idea there was a bnl holiday cd!

I've heard the $ store test is more sensative at times than the more expensive ones. Some people buy the cheapy ones then if they get a pos buy the more expensive.

Maggie said...

Sean looks so cute snuggled up in those coats!

the dollar store I worked at had preggy tests, but we had to keep them behind the counter because they would always get stolen.
